A recent survey, carried out by Discount Flooring Depot, revealed that 82 per cent of Brits would rather live in a period home for its character and original features.
Original features can drastically increase the value of your period property, with buyers often prepared to pay significantly more for a home with period features.
When asking what period features the respondents would prefer, windows featured at the top of the wish list with 42 per cent of respondents saying that they would prefer a home with original windows.
Other highly ranked period features included fireplaces, wooden floorboards and decorative details, such as cornicing.
