Victorian interiors feature beautiful colors, lots of ornate details, and skilled fakery to make the home a welcoming and beautiful place. The industrial revolution led to a revolution in interior decorating, and for the Victorians, high style was all about the appearance of luxury, whether real or imitation.
For today’s homeowner, Victorian interior design styles may seem out of reach. However, you don’t need a huge budget or a beautiful old house to utilize the principles of Victorian interior decorating in your own home; you simply need a little time and creativity.
History of Victorian Interior Design
Victorian interior design is a product of the Industrial Revolution, where machinery made it possible for the middle class to own highly ornate pieces. As the middle class became more affluent, they sought to demonstrate their newfound wealth with items that had previously only belonged to people of the upper classes. These items
How Much Does It Cost to Hire an Interior Designer?
The costs associated with hiring an interior designer will vary quite dramatically from job to job. One homeowner may ask for help with their entire home, while another wants some professional assistance in the family room. The American Society of Interior Designers stresses that there is “no such thing as a ‘typical’…fee for an interior designer”. They do indicate that most professionals will charge in one of four ways:
- Cost plus – this is a somewhat traditional method used in all types of assignments. In this approach, the designer purchases all of the materials for the job (including furnishings and accessories) and sells them to their client at an agreed upon markup or additional percentage. This percentage is the method by which the designer is paid for their work. A sample scenario would include:
- Consultation with designer on a
Homeowners spend more money on kitchen remodeling than on any other home improvement project. And with good reason: Kitchens are the hub of home life and a source of pride.
A significant portion of kitchen remodeling costs may be recovered by the value the project brings to your home. A complete kitchen renovation with a national median cost of $65,000 recovers about 62% of the initial project cost at the home’s resale, according to the “Remodeling Impact Report” from the National Association of REALTORS®.
The project gets a big thumbs-up from homeowners, too. Those polled in the “Report” gave their new kitchen a Joy Score of 10 (out of 10!), a rating based on those who said they were happy or satisfied with their remodeling, with 10 being the highest rating and 1 the lowest.
To help ensure you get a good return on your kitchen remodel, follow these seven

In many ways, home staging is a subjective art. Ask most people which is the most important room in the house, though, and they will likely answer “the kitchen.” This is why many stagers spend the most time and effort staging the kitchen.
Kitchens also tend to cost the most to remodel. It’s not uncommon for a homeowner to spend $50,000 to $150,000 to revamp the kitchen. Owners pour gobs of dough into remodeling the kitchen, making that space a gourmet showcase for the culinary arts.
However, you don’t need to spend a lot of money to spruce it up, unless it needs to be painted. You can stage that space and make it a desirable kitchen by using simple, proven staging techniques. Here are some examples of how a professional home stager might tackle a kitchen staging.
Getting the Kitchen Ready for Sale Before Staging
First and foremost, clean
We’ve surveyed thousands of kitchen buyers and tested kitchens in our lab to bring you ratings for big-name fitted kitchen brands – find out which have emerged triumphant as Best Buys.
A new kitchen is a big investment – so it makes sense to choose a trusted brand and a kitchen that was rated highly in our lab tests.
To find the best and worst fitted kitchen companies, and the kitchen cabinets worthy of a Best Buy accolade, we’ve surveyed thousands of kitchen owners and assessed kitchen units from almost all the big-name brands in our lab, including Ikea, John Lewis and Wickes.
To become a Best Buy, a kitchen had to score more than 70% overall. Our overall scores incorporate both lab-test results and customer feedback.
The top-scoring brand achieved 79% overall, while the lowest score was 57%. Only brands achieving more than 70% overall were awarded Best Buys.
Kitchens are the most hard-working room in the home. In many modern households they are so much more than a place to cook and clean. They’re the hub of the house, where people come together to eat, relax and socialise.
With all these different jobs to perform, getting the right kitchen design is essential. Kitchens must, of course, be practical, but with an ever-increasing range of kitchen cabinets, kitchen appliances, kitchen worktops and kitchen accessories to choose from, they can also be a stylish space that reflects your personality.
