Add feature lighting Builder-grade homes often rely on plain. recessed lighting to get a brighter look in kitchens and living rooms. Sure. they're effective. but recessed lighting won't do much for adding character to your home. Since you're more or less “stuck” with the lighting plan (no DIY electrical renovations. please!).
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.
This helps tie your entire studio together in a way that's very easy for the eye to process. It also helps the overall design feel more cohesive.As always. you should follow the 60-30-10 color rule. When working with such limited square footage. we highly suggest having your dominant shade (60%) be a neutral color. in order to open up the space as much as possible.
Swap out your hardware Builder-grade hardware is pretty generic; it's meant to appeal to as many homeowners as possible. Luckily. upgrading your hardware is a quick and easy fix that doesn't require years of builder expertise. Get personal with your hardware: scour flea markets for interesting knobs and latches. or opt for timeless hardware that's more your style.
