During the twentieth century Industrial Revolution in Great Britain, millions of houses were built in a housing boom now referred to as “Victorian” houses. In the United States, Victorian-era houses often include ornate décor with elaborate details, a multitude of trim and bold color palette.
Victorian homes often use traditional-style double hung windows in combination with arch windows on top. Bay and bow windows are also recommended to complement the ornate style of Victorian/Queen Anne homes. They give a focal point to a formal room as well as create the illusion of a bigger interior.
French-Style Sliding Doors can give Victorian/Queen Anne homes the traditional look of a French door, but with the space-saving convenience of a sliding glass door.
