Bringing modern day living and period home design together isn’t always easy. The main appeal of a period property lies in its age and its character, it is all about balance. If you’re not careful, modernising a home too much could lose some of that historic appeal. Renovating period properties can be exciting, but you need to be very careful with how much of the modern world you bring into your new home. For example, knowing how to mix modern and traditional furniture in a property is critical.
