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.
By purposefully drawing eyes upward. you ensure that everyone who sees your home is taking in the space as a whole. rather than just the tiny section at eye level. making your design look and feel more complete.To make it happen. utilize anything that draws eyes toward the ceiling. Here's a few examples and suggestions to get you started:Invest in verticle shelving.
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.
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.
