Try a ceiling treatmentLook up! Most builder-grade homes don't do much with the ceilings. 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.
White might be bright. but bringing color in always adds more character.Your new builder-grade home probably doesn't need a full renovation. In fact. the last thing you want after the building process is to add major projects to the list of things to do. However. you can try small fixes to make what may seem like a generic home more interesting.
your best bet is to remove less-necessary pieces until functionality becomes clear again.You'll also want to keep the room unified. Work on finding a few small details—colors. shapes. patterns—that you can repeat in various aspects of your design. This ensures all of your design elements feel intentional. rather than haphazardly thrown together.
Before you run out and buy dividers. it's important to determine where. and how. you're going to use them.Classic room dividers work best in areas where you truly do need a little more privacy—consider them for the area around your bed. However. to avoid making your space feel too separated. opt for a divider that lets natural light shine through. Open shelving is an excellent option. as it provides the added benefit of additional storage.
