Interior architecture: ways to achieve ‘wow’

Alongside hiding beams and sticking uPVC windows on a Jacobean manor, one of the greatest crimes the homeowner can commit is overlooking the interior architecture of their home when renovating or remodelling. When a good architect designs a new house, they not only look at the ways they can turn heads with the exterior, but also use clever design ‘tricks’ to create appeal inside too. There is no reason why you can’t utilise these ideas when transforming your own home.

In this series of blogs, I am going to look at a few of the ways you can add this wow factor. I will also explain what to do if you think money, building regs or space are going to get in the way of your vision, and – of course – show you some amazing examples from the pages of Real Homes.
