Historic Home Renovation—Maintain Old-Time Charm with Modern Amenities

historic home renovationThe Huntsville area is home to many modern structures and facilities. However, some properties are older, from the 1970s, 1960s, 1950s, and even turn of the century. These homes have the charm of their respective time periods. You can invest in a historic home renovation, so that your home retains its original look while updating it with modern technology.

Older Homes Require an Update

Older homes have seen several decades of use and wear and tear. Components, such as the foundation, plumbing, electrical, and insulation may all require an update to keep them on par with modern standards.

Updating the Kitchen and Bathroom

These two areas especially require attention. These rooms may need updated appliances and ventilations systems. These updates are essential for keeping the rooms functional. Once you have these out of the way, you can focus on the aesthetics. You can update areas like the cabinets and vanities, using materials and designs that correspond to the look of its original era.

The Kitchen

A wooden hutch cabinet, for example, is a great addition for a 1920s home. Kitchen counters from the era consisted of soapstone or fine-grained schist with light gray or charcoal surface color. As for the sink, this component consisted of a dry sink separate from the main counter.

A simple wooden table can go in the center of the room, right where an island would be in a modern kitchen.

The Bathroom

As for the bathroom, look for chrome or copper fixtures. Replace built-in or walk-in showers with a standalone tub. The vanity can consist of a dry sink similar to the kitchen. For the floor, stick to plain white tiles. Patterns for the tiling can include a basket weave or pinwheel design.
