Just keep in mind that your new hardware should still complement the existing features in your home. creating a totally cohesive look.Add trim to your mirrorsBuilders are notorious for bare-bones bathroom design. especially when it comes to mirrors. They usually provide you with the option to upgrade fixtures and even lighting. but most builder-grade homes simply have unframed mirrors that lack personality.
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!).
That said. there are a few things you can do to help ensure that your design remains cohesive. Remember: above all. the space should remain functional. Make a plan for your design before you begin. and do your best to keep function at the forefront. Don't be afraid to edit as you go. If there are ever so many design elements present that it gets difficult to identify the functionality at first glance.
Then. choose a middling shade (30%) for your secondary color and. finally. use pops of something bolder (10%) as your accent color.Choose dividers that let in light. Divide wiselyWhen designing your studio. you need to divide your space up somehow. That said. not all dividers are created equal. Using too many. or the wrong type. leaves your space feeling choppy. or unnecessarily cut off from the rest of the room.
