In 2015 I bought a Victorian house in Cheshire built in 1890. Although it has beautiful proportions it was in desperate need of a renovation. It was only once I began the renovation that I realised old houses require special attention.
In an attempt to restore character to the house combined with modern conveniences and the latest technology I discovered very few high street stores stock the materials I needed or the style of fixtures and fittings I wanted.
I began researching fixtures and fittings online and in the glossy house magazines but most of their products were beyond my budget.
This website is collection of my experiences, insights and advice for anyone renovating their period property.
