So you’ve renovated, re-designed and remodeled your home. Usually the last phase is in the accessories that you use to bring each room together. Overlooking the accessories is missing the opportunity to personalize your home and bring a big part of your personality into the fold. Accessories are truly the icing on the cake in any space so getting this part right is important. Failing to do this in any space is like failing to frame a lovely picture. Here’s some ideas for you to consider when accessorizing your newly renovated or designed space.
New outlet covers and switch plates in the room. Switch plates may at first glance go unnoticed but the truth is the little efforts you put into the details can say a lot about the type of person you are. Nice updated switch plates come in every style and finish and say you give attention to the little things as well as the big things. With finishes that will compliment stainless steel, bronze, or even classic antique styling you’ll find just the right look for any room in the home.
Over the door crown molding now comes in easy to apply pieces that can be trimmed and cut to sized easily. While there are many versions of this detail, be sure to do your research to see which look will best say what you want it to say about your home and your tastes. There are inexpensive peel and stick versions that are budget friendly and can be removed if you are renting. You can make your own by looking at examples you find online and elsewhere that will add tons of character and charm to your home.
Decorative door knobs and cabinet pulls are another overlooked accessory that can take a room from being “done” to being finished with a flare and polish not seen in just any builder grade home. Cabinet pulls come in so many colors and styles that you can express your individual taste and personality while at the same time keeping things simple and easy to change if you decide to sell or change your mind. Custom looking hand painted ceramic , colorful faceted glass or any metal finish in any shape can be as easy to find if you start your search online once you enter “cabinet knobs and pulls” in your browser..
Ceiling Medallions can be one of those accessories that give a bit of old world flare to newer homes. It’s the type of accessory that can give your fifth wall, (your ceiling) that extra element of surprise and detail. It’s great to get rid of popcorn ceilings and a lovely medallion where your chandelier or ceiling fan hangs can be just the finishing touch. Take a look around your home today and see if these ideas could make an impact on the look and feel you’re after in your newly renovated space.
