Sometimes, when you move into a new-for-you home, there simply are not enough funds to make all the changes, updates, and upgrades you long for once the mortgage paperwork is signed. Take your time and make the changes you want as time passes instead of piling on more bills or adding things you do not really want just because they come in at a good price. Look at these unique ideas for making changes to your home.
Upgrade the Staircase
If your home’s staircase is a showpiece located right inside the front door, or even if it sits at the back of the house, it is equal parts function and fabulous decor. Make it even better by replacing it with 42mm pipe. You will be amazed by how it fits into your current aesthetic. Galvanised pipe suits a modern industrial look as well as an eclectic style.
Choosing to upgrade your home’s staircase will have benefits beyond just how it looks. Over time, the railings, balusters, newel posts, and treads all begin to show wear and tear. In addition, the structure can become unsafe. With all that in mind, select high-quality pieces to construct a new one, and do not forget about the style. You do not have to sacrifice beauty for safety and peace of mind.
There are more ways than one to go green, as they say. To begin, you can add a pretty compost container to your kitchen that everyone will think is for storage. Or try positioning your recycling bins near the door but under a new bench. No one will even notice your clever attempt at environmentalism.
And, finally, add natural elements to the home’s interior with houseplants. They look expected and perfectly at home in every room. Try some of these ideas.
- Consider installing glass shelves in front of a kitchen window to grow beautifully potted herbs. They will smell wonderful, be accessible for cooking, and save money on store-bought herbs.
- Hang plants in the bathroom. Since bathrooms are generally smaller spaces, by utilizing a ceiling hook or two and hanging the plant pots from decorative hangers, you add style elements and maximize the space and make it seem bigger by drawing the eye visually upwards.
- Tuck living greenery in corners, on desks, and even on your dinner table. Move them around throughout the year or as you are moved to do so. Plants are easy design features that offer a refreshing vibe. You can change their respective pots, vessels, and stands as you wish for a different look whenever you like.
