Victorian Era Wardrobes (1840 – 1890)

Victoria Era houses are often referred to as terraced houses and refer to both Victorian and Edwardian period homes. Drawing great inspiration from Paris and London architecture they came into popularity between 1940 and 1890. The Glen Eira suburbs of Elsternwick and St Kilda east are the main suburbs with these style homes.

Most commonly built in brick, two-storey with upper level balconies. The balconies feature ornate cast iron, and the interiors often feature grand polished floor-boards, beautiful tiling and eave cornices and skirting boards.

Edwardian Era Wardrobes (1895 – 1915)

Not very prominent in the Glen Eira area, these homes were mainly built in the inner and middle suburbs during 1890 – 1915.
Edwardian homes in Victoria are often weatherboard but can also be brick and still adhere to the style. The terracotta tiles or galvanised roofing pitched above plaster cornices and ceiling roses that paid homage to the Victoria era. Featuring much larger, single frontages the Edwardian Era of home were a breath of fresh air after the dark and gloomy Victoria era.

Californian Bungalow Wardrobes (1910 – 1935)

These single story, brick time capsules were slathered in timber inside and out to give them a unique and open design. They were seen as a real turn from the European style design to the US and the Holywood feel. Common features included bay windows, ceiling panelling and contrasting timber door-frames, window-frames and picture rails. Lined with polished floorboards and centered around large hallways the Californian Bungalow moved towards the modern open plan living.

Art Deco Era Wardrobes  (1920 – 1945)

Craftsmanship Deco homes were a development base for the most part included around connected enhancement. Highlights incorporate; profoundly stylised botanical and dawn designs, groups of block, shelters or copings that extended direct structures through the house and cement blocky structures that are separated by bended decorative components. Craftsmanship Deco impacted engineering as well as style, workmanship and outline too. Deco was a break in pattern that saw the rise of another configuration that joined the excellent specialty of the time and additionally the organized exactness of engineering.
