Marble-Inspired Accents

For centuries, marble has been a symbol of wealth and prestige. Today, it is attracting the attention of homeowners as they choose to add touches of the precious stone to their kitchens, which brings an affordable look of elegance and luxury to their homes. Featured in the photo of the kitchen below is Carrara. This is a new quartz color by Granite Transformations, from the Trascenda Collection (and appropriately named because it is reminiscent of Carrara marble).

Bottle it Up

This is by far the easiest yet cleverest way to add a touch of class to your bathroom vanity. Fill a beautiful cut crystal decanter with your favorite mouth wash. It’s a fun way to add color and practicality to your bathroom décor.

Art in Unlikely Places

These days, artwork and favorite photos are showing up in unlikely places throughout homes. Here, perfectly placed shelving allows for extra space to store towels and accessories, and also doubles as a place to showcase personal photos. It’s a great way to add a personal touch to your guest bathroom while showing off your favorite artwork or photography.

Hanging Storage

Free up counterspace and eliminate bulky canister sets by hanging mason jars under your cabinets. This clever idea starts with attaching the lids to the underside of your cabinets, filling the jars with dried goods, and then screwing the jars back onto the lids. It’s an inexpensive and spacesaving solution to  keep what you need within arm’s reach while adding a touch of character to your kitchen.

Switch Out the Hardware

This is an easy and inexpensive way to update any space in your home while experimenting with a different color or material in your design scheme. Switching your hardware is a great starting point before investing in expensive accessories (like a gold-toned faucet, for example). Just remember: if you’re going from knobs to pulls, there will be extra drilling involved. This is nevertheless still an easy project that can be completed in one weekend.

Things are Looking Up

Painting your kitchen ceiling is an easy and unique way to add depth and warmth to this particular room while also creating a fresh new look. Choose a color that is part of your kitchen décor. If you have a smaller kitchen, go a few shades lighter to create a sense of height and openness. For larger kitchens, apply a darker shade to create a cozy and alluring look.
