More than a Blank Canvas: How to Enhance the Design Features of a New Home

>> Oct 15, 2013

There are so many things to consider when looking for a new home, but for some of us a particular design concept or era of construction can be the factor to make or break a deal.

Some people like the idea of treating a new home as a totally blank canvas on which they can put their own unique style or decoration, notwithstanding the original intentions of the designers or builders, while for others utilising the inbuilt features of a building and enhancing them in a sympathetic way can be a source of great inspiration and satisfaction.


Some styles can be defined by a general era of construction. For instance, buildings put up in the Victorian Age are usually lumped together as one thing; although there is a great deal of variation in types of buildings and construction features that can fall under the banner.

For many homemakers in the UK, a period Victorian house is something that is in great demand and utilising original features can play a big part in renovation or decoration plans. Relatively simple things such as replacing ill-fitting manmade material windows with modern double glazed sash units can be a great example of combining old ideas with new applications.

When you are looking for a particular style of property it is best to give estate agents as much detail as possible so that they can help you in the best way they can. For those looking in the region of Chelmsford, Fenn Wrightcan help you find Homes in Chelmsford and there is a fantastic stock of Victorian properties in good order to choose from.


Some people are looking for something a little more out of the ordinary with their homes, and art deco buildings from the early 20th century and later modernist designers can demand quite a premium when it comes to prices.

This type of property usually has a number of very distinctive design features that act as bold statements and inspiring launch pads for even more creative interior and exterior styling.

As well as being good scenarios for using furniture and fittings from their own periods, art deco and modernist designs both provide a good blank canvas for ultra contemporary 21st century furniture, fittings and technological enhancements.

Minimalist interior approaches and styles are far more suited to buildings such as these than they are to Victorian and other older properties, so it can be useful to narrow your search down depending on what your own preferences might be.

I love the photo you got here. This is exactly how I want my home to look like. Very few beautiful pieces and a large space for my kids to run around.
