Frequently Asked Questions

What are the features of a Victorian Style Home?

Victorian style homes are renowned for their ornate and detailed architecture. Key features include gabled roofs, decorative trim, stained glass windows, and intricate facades. Inside, you'll often find high ceilings, elaborate staircases, and detailed woodwork. These homes usually have multiple stories, with a layout that includes spacious living areas and bedrooms. Smarthomes specialises in capturing these quintessential elements in their custom-built Victorian homes, ensuring each residence they construct in Melbourne is a true representation of this elegant architectural style.

They are experts in constructing bespoke Victorian homes, ensuring every detail aligns with the authentic Victorian aesthetic while meeting modern living standards. Their team of skilled builders and designers can help you realise your dream of owning a Victorian style home with all the modern comforts.

What defines a Victorian style home?

A Victorian style home is defined by its elaborate and romantic aesthetic, which was popular during Queen Victoria's reign (1837-1901). These homes are characterised by their asymmetrical designs, steeply pitched roofs, ornate detailing, and decorative elements like towers and turrets. Victorian homes often feature a mix of architectural styles, including Gothic Revival, Italianate, and Queen Anne. Smarthomes understands these historical nuances and incorporate them into their custom-built Victorian homes, ensuring each project they undertake is a true reflection of this iconic style.

What are Victorian decorative characteristics?

Victorian decorative characteristics include intricate woodwork, stained glass windows, ornamental cornices, and patterned wallpaper. Exteriors often feature decorative trim, patterned brickwork, and elaborate porches. Inside, Victorian homes may have elaborate fireplaces, ceiling medallions, and detailed moulding. Smarthomes takes these characteristics into account when designing and building Victorian style homes, ensuring that each detail contributes to the overall historical authenticity and beauty of the residence.

What colours are good for Victorian houses?

Victorian houses are known for their bold and rich colour palettes. Traditionally, these homes featured deep hues like burgundy, forest green, and navy blue, often complemented by more vibrant accents. Today, many homeowners opt for a mix of traditional and contemporary colours, incorporating lighter and more neutral shades for a modern twist. Smarthomes can guide you in selecting a colour palette that respects the Victorian style while reflecting your personal taste, creating a visually stunning home that stands out in Melbourne's landscape.

How do I make my house look Victorian?

To make your house look Victorian, focus on incorporating key architectural and decorative elements of the era. This includes adding ornate detailing to the exterior, such as spindle work, gingerbread trim, and decorative brackets. Inside, consider installing period-appropriate fixtures, elaborate mouldings, and rich, patterned wallpapers. Don't forget the importance of colour, as Victorian homes often feature a distinctive and bold colour scheme. Smarthomes can assist in designing and building a home that captures the essence of Victorian architecture, tailoring every aspect to meet your vision for a Victorian-inspired residence.
