Do you love the look of historic homes? Do you live in a newer home that lacks the charm and character many older homes have? Don’t worry! There are simple things you can do to transform the look of your new home that make it look more like a historic home.
Renovating a new home to look older is a hot trend right now! Some of our favorite ways of transforming a new home include:
- Aged floors: Using finishes inspired by historic homes you can transform the look of your new home. Staining or whitewashing wood floors gives them a rustic and aged feel.
- Reclaimed materials: Strategically using reclaimed wood or bricks in your home’s design provides an aged look with a historical feel. Reclaimed bricks can be used in landscaping and pathways and reclaimed wood can serve as a wall hanging or headboard.
- Vintage fixtures: Our design-build firm in Atlanta can help you find vintage plumbing fixtures that add character and history to your kitchen and bathrooms. There are also fixtures available that are designed for use in modern homes but look like fixtures found in homes of different historical eras.
- Embellished trim: Many historic homes have intricate and embellished trim. Crown moldings, chair rail, and floor trim are all available in styles that can transform the look of your home. We suggest searching for photos of historical homes and comparing their trim to what is available for purchase.
