Antique Home Millwork

Historical and vintage American millwork

Millwork for your old house was once plentiful and relatively inexpensive. All but the most modest houses had built-in cabinetry in the form of linen closets and storage drawers, bookcases, as well as moldings and decorative trims.

For contemporary homeowners, finding out what type of mill work may have been in a home before it was remodeled or restoring and matching existing millwork can pose a significant research project.

Even if you don't have an old home, there are lots of ideas for storage and style that are functional and beautiful, too.

Through some of the old catalogs, Antique Home offers a glimpse into the past.

The slide show above shows doors, built-ins, buffets, and glass from the Universal Mill Work Catalog from 1920.
