The original house had two living rooms, which Beth opened up into one while still maintaining distinct areas. ‘The room at the front was really dark,’ Beth explains. The open layout now allows light from the garden to reach into both areas. ‘The front room is more for TV watching,’ Beth says. However, she has hidden the TV from view in a bespoke cabinet. ‘I don’t like looking at a blank screen,’ she says. Disappointed by the cabinet options on the market, she asked her builder to design one instead. The couple restored and reinstated period features in across the space. They refitted traditional-style wooden sash windows – now double glazed – replacing some out-of-character uPVC ones. ‘We also put the ceiling roses in,’ Beth says. ‘The rooms have really nice high ceilings, and I felt they needed a little fancy cornicing.’ The curtain rails are copper. ‘We couldn’t find curtain rails that would fit, so we decided to put up some copper pipes instead,’ Beth reveals. She added copper fixtures to the central pendant lights for cohesion.Copper light fixture, Habitat.Be inspired by 9 ways to conceal your gadgets

…unless it’s a listed buildingListed buildings are a whole other kettle of fish, and any renovations will probably require Planning Permission. ‘For listed buildings, planners tend to want to retain the existing plan-form of the house, and the downstairs wall is a key element of that,’ Natalie says. That’s not to say you won’t get planning approval, but you’d need to submit scale drawings of your intended project to your local planning authority and wait to see if they’re accepted.
Cathy Rebecca added this to 21st Century Lighting Ideas for Georgian and Victorian Homes
Consider the effectDifferent rooms have very different functions and will certainly have diverse lighting requirements. Therefore, sticking to one form of lighting throughout might be rather limiting. So have fun. Make sure your lighting supports how you want the space to look and feel, plus how you want to use it. Don’t be afraid to use tools that our Victorian ancestors did not have.In this room, central pendants are combined with a range of lamps to create a flexible and social space. Make sure lights are dimmable, however, particularly a central pendant, so you can change the mood.Check out 10 ways to style a period fireplace
Victoria Harrison added this to What You Need to Know About Party Walls
Removing or altering a chimney breastChimney breasts like this exist in the majority of older houses. If you share this wall with your neighbour and would like to remove the chimney breast, or make the opening bigger, you’ll need a Party Wall Award, because it’s an integral part of the wall. It’s especially important to have old brick walls of unknown quality looked at by a party wall surveyor.Learn about costs you may not have considered when it comes to your renovation
Lara Watson added this to 10 Ways to Make the Most of Your Victorian Mouldings
Be appropriate to your propertyIf your house is pretty grand, with high ceilings, the most appropriate mouldings are large and fairly ornate. Good examples to look for are egg and dart designs, acanthus leaf mouldings or dentil coving. Wide architraves with lots of detailing, a larger-sized dado rail and a tall skirting board would suit this type of house best. If you’re giving your Victorian home a cleaner, more minimalist feel with lots of lighter colours and more contemporary touches, you might want to choose simpler period moulding designs so they don’t impose on the overall décor.Choose moulding sizes in proportion to your house. Just because you want to use a simpler style, it doesn’t mean the item has to be small. Victorian houses tend to have high ceilings, so if you choose mini mouldings, they will look odd in all but the smallest of rooms.
Victoria Harrison added this to 9 Ways to Create Zones in an Open-plan Home
Pick a focal pointFurniture grouping and angling can easily create clear areas, such as with these two seating zones. Lighting, rugs and colour schemes bridge the areas and keep them separate at the same time. Each zone also has a clear focal point: the fireplace in the centre of each space. This is a good way to create one zone for daytime and one for evening.

Energise with a shot of bright colourThe combination of black and white stripes and the hot pink of the sofa cushions makes the impact here. All the other colours in the room are cool and there’s very little pattern, allowing the rug and cushions to shine.
