The Victorian era is named after Queen Victoria, the Queen of England from 1837-1901. Victorian decor reflects the tastes and styles of this era. According to Creative Home Decorating Room by Room, the Victorian period speaks to "An era of ornate and excessive decoration in all things".

The Victorian era also had a more masculine side, by incorporating dark furniture and animal trophy accessories throughout the home.

Victorian Style Living Room

Today’s Victorian Style

Today’s Victorian house was originally the residence of a family belonging to the upper middle class. Excessive can often be considered synonymous with Victorian. The upper class showed their wealth and those who aspired to their status found ways to mimic it. Restraint was not part of Victorian interior decorating.

Victorian Style Dining Room

Perhaps the first thing we think of when we think of Victorian lighting is crystal chandeliers. You can opt for a traditional chandelier like the one in this dining room.

Let’s take a step back in time with our favorite inspirational and romantic dining rooms that evoke Victorian features, timeless elegance, and some with a modern-day twist.

Final Thoughts

I read somewhere that Romanticism is perhaps the strongest reason for the persistent popularity of Victorian décor. Simply put, Victorian décor without the romance is simply fussiness and clutter.

For your Victorian space look at heavy brass, crystal with plenty of accents.

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.
