The Victorian era 1837-1901

This was one of the most progressive eras in history. When it comes to societal change, the rise of the middle classes and new technologies, the Victorians pioneered. These were people who appreciated the finer things in life, and wanted their homes to be similarly fine and full of splendour. During this period new styles and old came into fashion, including the resurgence of Gothic architecture and design. 

Grandeur was the theme of the 19th century and the Victorians knew how to do it better than most. High ceilings and large reception rooms were the hallmarks of a Victorian home and, to match the grand rooms, the Victorian’s needed equally grand entrance doors


The very typical four panel Victorian entrance doors were the most commonly in the period. These designs were used throughout the Victorian era, and were consistently used in all manner of dwellings, be it the small terraced house of a factory worker or the grand maison of the landed gentry.
