The Enlightenment Room - Interesting Victorian history and advice
Hand-made fabric hangings or curtains were often used on walls as decoration, or to divide up room spaces in grand country or town houses. They were also used around beds to stop drafts and aid privacy.
If there is one item we most strongly associate with Victorian interiors it is the heavy sumptuousness of often elaborate curtains and drapery which adorned all homes.
The curtain pole is the most important curtain accessory as without a curtain pole the curtain would be unable to hang in front of the window.
There is nothing wrong with making your Victorian home more suitable for modern living, such as adding an air conditioning system, removing lead paint but don’t go overboard. You still want to keep the Victorian essence of your home.
