Here at More Handles we deal with a design feature that is often forgotten about; the humble door handle. To celebrate its importance in your design decisions we’ve compiled a fun list of all the other things that turn a house into a home. Finishing touches allow you to weave yourself into a room. Not only that but it’s also one of the most affordable options when redecorating. So dedicate some time to it and have a little fun - our list will get those creative gears bubbling. Happy ideas hunting!
Our last blog has already spoken about amazing wall features, but this time around we thought we’d dedicate a bit more time to it. In all of its glory a wall feature can completely transform a dull, empty space into a real talking point. Anything that focuses the eye in a room is sure to make it aesthetically pleasing, so put a wall into focus and make it standout. Not sure how to do it? Then take a look at our favourites below.
Adding a touch of colour to a space can completely transform its atmosphere. You can achieve this in many ways and it can be easy to over do it. This is also a design decision that can nicely theme in with our other suggestions. A feature wall, for example is a great way to get colour into your space, without overwhelming it. Gentle nods to this design element is sure to spruce up your space, so take a look at our examples and see which can work best for you.
Here at More Handles we’re aware of the importance of touch. All of our kitchen handles, door handles and door knobs will come into contact with hands at some point, so we thought it was important to mention texture. Tactile finishes in a room can create a completely different aesthetic depending on how they are executed. You can go big or small with this design decision, as you’ll see from our list, so decide what will be best for your home by seeing how they work in our chosen examples.
If our choices so far have been a bit comfortable for you, then take a look at our next idea. Industrial touches will make any room suddenly feel twice as expensive. It’s thrifty and lends well to the upcycle movement happening at the moment. Take some unused piping and make a curtain rail or salvage some antique bulbs to create a truly unique light. We think this idea is super exciting as it’s so versatile. Take a look at our examples below.
All of these ideas are achievable on any kind of budget, it just takes a bit of imagination and research! Want to gain some interior design inspiration? Then take a look at our superb range of door handles, it’ll be a great starting point.
