Taking an afternoon to trim mirrors in stained or painted hardwood gives your bathroom a completely custom look that is anything but generic. Try matching your cabinetry finish or stain for a more refined look. or go for a bright color for a fun kid's bathroom. Getting rid of the harsh. plain edges of unframed mirrors adds character. and. best of all. doing so doesn't require a complete bathroom renovation.
A good place to start: group accent pieces in threes. Try three colored glass bottles on your entryway table. or use only three pillows on your living room sofa.Once you're done rearranging what you have on hand. take a step back. and use your sense of perception to suss out how the room feels. Make tweaks as you go: add or take away items as necessary. until you feel you've struck an ideal balance.Update windows with elegant drapery
Since it's important to make your home feel luxurious in an affordable way. adding fresh-cut bouquets every week may be out of your budget. Instead. try plants that don't take much upkeep. such as orchids that bloom in cycles or succulents that last for years.Layer your décorOnce you eliminate the clutter. your home can seem empty and boring instead of a lush. relaxing paradise.
And. like most owner-builders. you probably had the chance to choose some of your home's options. Still. from carpet to paint color. cabinet finish to lighting fixtures. production builders keep costs consistent by offering only a few choices for each detail of your new home. Even after choosing your favorite options. your brand-new home may still lack the charm and character of an older home.
