New Door Hardware Adds Excellent Decorative Touches
By Tori Spade
When it comes to home design, homeowners are always looking for interesting ways to incorporate detail into their home. Whether your house is large or small, details should always compliment the existing elements in the home. Home design typically focuses on one or two major items in the room. In the living room: couches or entertainment centers, in the kitchen: cabinets, counters, or appliances, in the bathroom: the vanity or the shower. These are pieces that can be found in just about every home and are absolutely vital to the room in order to be fully functional. Regardless of how beautiful or new these large elements are, they will be compromised if the smaller decorative pieces in the room do not compliment them perfectly. Although many overlook it, door hardware makes a big impact on the room’s design theme. Before guests enter a room or open a cabinet, they must first see and feel the door hardware.
When it comes to home remodeling, many simply concentrate on replacing the large items in the room and then ending the job there. Whether you’re undergoing serious house renovations or just updating the look of your home, decorative touches play an important role in completing the design. Although they’re small touches, decorative hardware makes your already great pieces even better. By adding a touch of color, detail, or texture – homeowners can maximize a room’s design potential.
In a room like the kitchen, cabinets are hanging directly at eye level. Even if you have brand new, beautiful cabinets – the wrong door hardware can make them an eyesore. Replacing regular, bland door hardware with decorative hardware, you’ve created a new decorative element within the room and improved the look of your cabinets. Decorative hardware won’t just benefit the doors you install them on, but they will impact the room as a whole.
Combining function and design makes incorporating decorative hardware into small rooms a breeze. In rooms like the bathroom, homeowners are very limited as to what they can put into the room without cramming the space. It’s important to add a decorative touch into the room, but at the same time – we don’t want to compromise the available space. With door hardware, you’re taking something that is vital to the room itself and putting a decorative twist on it. Without taking up counter, wall, or floor space, you’ve added a decorative detail in the room.
Another solution that decorative hardware provides is that homeowners who are bored with the look of their room can instantly make improvements without having to endure a home remodeling project. Home remodeling doesn’t just come with the installation of new pieces. Most of the time, plumbing and electrical routes must also be altered – making the process long and costly. Sometimes all a room needs is a few decorative adjustments, and the entire look and feel is altered. Home design doesn’t just focus on the large elements like many people think. Without small elements, like door hardware, to work in harmony with the centerpieces, a room can feel boring. So before you decide to undergo some major house renovations, sit down and decide what is really bothering you about the room. If you want to update your design, make some small adjustments first. New door hardware might seem like a very small adjustment, but the impact this small change can make is big. Details in a room ultimately give the room its class, character, and design. Without the right attention, these can get lost in the shuffle. By ensuring that no detail goes overlooked, your home’s design can reach it’s full potential
