During that period, builders and architects developed several variations of overlapping architectural styles, with Gothic and Queen Anne being the most predominant. Traditional Victorian rooms featured tall ceilings which called for larger mouldings, often combined with decorative blocks. Today’s Victorian home represents this same ornate and grand design with distinctive architectural elements like asymmetrical facades, steep gabled roofs, wrap-around porches, and other fanciful details such as decorative brackets and spindle work. Interiors feature fireplaces with heavy mantels, elaborate moulding combinations and doors with applied mouldings and pediments. The Victorian is rich with history and allows for a variety of distinctive and elegant touches.
