5. Wooden floorboards

Wooden floorboards are a relatively easy way to immediately get a traditional look in a modern property. The smooth, worn look of wooden floorboards gives your home a vintage look and adds to impression that it is far older than it really is.

A timber conservatory can add a touch of real vintage glamour and refinement to your property. Originally a feature of stately homes, where it was used as a space to cultivate exotic plants, the conservatory is now a popular vintage-look structure found on many properties. Available in a wide variety of traditional styles, a timber conservatory is a great way to increase the space of your home and get a traditional look in a modern property in the process.

Timber doors are also another wooden product that can really help a modern property achieve a traditional look. A traditional material for doors for hundreds of years, modern timber doors are attractive, durable and thermally-efficient; helping you to reap all the benefits of a vintage wooden door, without having to compromise on quality.

A few vintage accessories scattered around the home can really help to create a traditional look in a modern property. We’re not suggesting that you go out and buy a Victorian mangle, but the odd vintage accessory such as an old restored flour bin, sanded kitchen table or gilt mirror can really make a property appear older than it is.

One of our best recommendations for getting a traditional look in a modern property is to invest in timber windows.
