Protect your investment. Old homes have a certain character and craftsmanship that makes them stand out in a crowd. The US Department of the Interior considers a 50 year old home historic so a home built before the mid-20th century is worthy of preservation and historic status. Stroll slowly past your home and notice its potential for curb appeal. Feel the legacy of the original owners. Restoring and properly upgrading older homes demands a special kind of attention not required by newer homes. George Nash does a nice job talking about this in “Renovating Old Houses: Bringing New Life to Vintage Homes.”
Bring the Legacy of Light. Many modern homes look uniform and bland because taking a purely functional approach to lighting has become the norm. Older homes benefit from lighting that plays with light and shade and works to highlight unique features and qualities. Modern families require functionality and customization to achieve lighting that is safe, clean, efficient, up to the modern demands, aesthetically pleasing, and in keeping with legacy preservation.
Be Compliant. Most home fires are avoidable; there is a reason why Knob and Tube wiring installed prior to 1950 is no longer covered by home owners’ insurance. Do you know how your older home is wired?
