Dreary window decor makes rooms feel dark and dreary. Opt for lighter shades and stylish curtain rods. If you have high ceilings. your drapes should be long enough to avoid cutting off the room. If you have the means to hire a seamstress for truly individualized style. purchase the fabric on your own. in accordance to your budget.
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.
Usually. they're simply painted white. leaving more budget for other areas and details of the home. However. adding character to your ceilings can give your home a more lived-in. custom look. Try installing decking to give your ceiling more texture. or add a ceiling medallion to bring attention to a unique light fixture. Suddenly. your ceiling becomes less of an afterthought and more of a feature.
