Contemporary Interiors

Many people are attracted to Georgian and Regency houses because of their elegant proportions but owning a period dollshouse does not mean that you necessarily have to furnish it in a historic style. With the increasing choice and availability of contemporary miniatures many collectors wish to furnish their dollshouse as it might be today. This gives huge scope to include furniture and decorative elements from any period and allows for the occasional blocking of a chimney and the inclusion of bathrooms, cloakrooms, kitchens and utility rooms. All our houses can be given a modern twist and below you can see a few ways that we have done this.

Kitchens

One of the most immediate ways of reflecting a modern look is with a designer-style kitchen. We can achieve this for you by either replacing period features with contemporary fittings within a room, or by creating a completely open-plan space.

Modern lighting and open-plan

The use of recessed spotlights gives a contemporary feel to a traditionally panelled room or an open-plan kitchen. The removal of walls from cupboard stairs gives an open-plan look whilst the opening up of a whole basement area provides total open-plan living. A log burner gives a contemporary edge to a fireplace.

Bathrooms

Just as with full-sized houses in a period property one of the smaller bedrooms will often make an excellent bathroom, whilst more structural modifications may be required to add an en suite or cloakroom. Some of the interiors of our houses have been modified to include Victorian or Edwardian bathroom and toilet facilities and, whilst these are not really contemporary, we have included a few pictures here, together with some traditional modern bathrooms.
