The 1930s Home

Author(s): Greg Stevenson


The way that people related to their homes and furnishings was undergoing fundamental changes in the 1930s. Many became homeowners for the first time, the provision of electricity became widespread, and interest in home dicor was booming. The four million houses built in Britain between the wars introduced new architectural styles that have become a lasting feature of the domestic landscape. From flat-roofed modern villas to romantically clad 'Tudorbethan' semi-detached houses, the 1930s home was a theatre for playing out many dreams.
