Welcome to Period House Style. This website offers the resources to research the correct period details of your home. From Victorian front doors, Regency wallpaper to Bakelite handles. This guide provides an insight into each period style whether you are restoring, extending or building your home.

Period House Style is laid out so that either details of specific periods i.e. Edwardian can be researched or by general features i.e. Leaded Glass. Each page provides a history of the subject, lots of images and further links to either research or source products.

Prague Doorways
