When remodeling, many homeowners turn to professional interior designers for their home improvement needs. But interior designers, no matter how good they are, can’t read your mind and serve up designs that completely fit your individual need. Below are a handful of remodeling ideas you may want to consider talking to your interior designer about when looking to spruce up your home’s décor.
Don’t ignore bathroom accessories
Bathroom accessories can easily be overlooked, but can mean a world of difference when remodeling your bathroom. Knobs, pulls and even shower door hinges can bring any bathroom to life when used properly. Talk to your interior designer about which still fits your specific need.
Glass is a timeless and elegant design style. Incorporating glass into your home décor can provide a modern and clean look. Glass can be used as a table top in your kitchen, as restoration glass in kitchen cabinets or even as a backsplash in your kitchen.
Take advantage of antique mirrors
Antique mirrors can add an old world look and feel to any home improvement project. Your interior designer can help guide you as to how you can effectively use antique mirrors in various rooms of your home.
Ask about frameless glass choices
Frameless shower door glass gives a bathroom a larger, more open feel. The right hinges coupled with other bathroom accessories along your cabinetry can add a tremendous amount of visual appeal.
These ideas are a great place to begin when starting to have a conversation with your professional interior designer. Keep an open mind about some of their design ideas and always blend form and function with your next home remodel.
Mirrors don’t have to be just about being “mirrors”. They can also be works of art. Antique mirrors are a great way to add a touch of old world look and feel to any home improvement project. Homeowners that are renovating their homes often times want their newly designed space to have the charm and character only an older home can provide. Naturally distressed mirror finishes and other artistic flairs can create instant character to what would otherwise be boring mirrors.
Professional interior designers know that attention to detail can mean the difference in a room that feels cold and dated vs. a room that is warm and inviting. Having an antique mirror as a focal point in a room will not only draw guests into the room, but can also be a great conversation piece.
Talk to an expert interior decorator about the possibilities of adding an antique mirror to one or more of your rooms. Don’t forget that mirror frames are many times just as important as the mirror itself and can help blend the overall room décor.
There is a lot of opportunity to incorporate glass into any home décor. Glass can offer clean, visually appealing lines as well as provide added functionality to a number of rooms in a home. Glass is timeless, and can be used in a number of creative ways throughout the home. Beyond being sleek and easy to maintain, glass is a surface that can be shaped or colored to fit any design need.
Some creative ways glass can be utilized in your home décor include:
- Glass table tops and shelves
- Colored glass and backsplashes
- Cabinet and patterned glass
- Restoration glass
- Glass railings
Whether your design tastes are contemporary or traditional, glass can be a simple and elegant solution for your home décor needs. If you are renovating a room in your home, talk to professional about how you can take advantage of glass not only for specific design elements but how glass can save on energy costs as well.
When renovating a master bathroom, homeowners typically start thinking about updating the flooring, adding another sink or even installing custom mirror frames. However simply changing your shower door can add a tremendous amount of visual appeal and value to your home. Homeowners are now starting to incorporate frameless shower doors into their bathroom renovation plans.
So why does a shower door even matter with a bathroom renovation? Decorators, builders and homeowners prefer frameless shower doors when renovating due to their clean lines, elegant design and their ability to keep water inside the shower so that your floors are always protected from moisture. No matter what your design tastes may be, there is a frameless shower door solution for every bathroom renovation need.
