Everybody's looking for ways to add a little panache to their home decor. Fashion designers all have their tricks and tips. So do we. Let's look at how to turn your home into something that reflects your personality.
One dramatic and easy trick is to turn an ordinary panel door into a sliding barn door. All that needs to be done is to hang a bracket with sliders so that, instead of opening the doors into the room, they slide on either side of the wall. This not only takes care of creating a dramatic entrance, it also provides some quick decoration on the walls. Want to go to the next level? Distress those doors with some stripped paint and you’ll have instant rustic intrigue.
Another really great way to add dazzle is to reimagine and repurpose things in your house. One simple trick involves old screens that are in the garage. They are a perfect set of frames that can be connected to form a privacy wall in the backyard. The wall blocks a less-than-ideal view. Spray paint them with a variety of colors and you have a very modern grid.
Finally, one of the best household tips is really the simplest. Decluttering—i.e. putting things away—can be your design savior. We all have too much stuff and that stuff usually finds its way spilling over into our life. The cheapest and simplest way to design hack your house is to find a place for those things.
