What Houzz contributors are saying:
Retain period featuresMuch of the charm of old houses lies in their period features, such as terrazzo floors, cornicing, fireplaces, staircases and sliding sash windows. However, it’s inevitable that you’ll lose some of these features once you start insulating and modernising, so be prepared for this. Any lost cornicing can be rebuilt by specialists who will recreate your original design. Similarly, you can maintain a terrazzo floor if you can find an alternative location for your heating pipes. As for sash windows, there are many joinery companies who can reproduce them but it tends to be costly.
