Thinking Outside the Box with Your Interior Design
by Robby Monk for Drexler Shower Door and Custom Glass
One of the most exciting things you can do as a homeowner is remodeling the interior of your home. From drastic renovation projects that include removing walls and adding new space, to minor DIY projects such as updating kitchen and bath hardware, updating your home’s interior can add dramatic appeal and value. But where do you start? Regardless of what you believe needs to be done to the interior of your home, challenge yourself to think outside the box when it comes to renovation ideas. Go against the grain Many homeowners look to their friends and family for remodeling advice inside their home. This feedback, for the most part, is typically unified in nature. Their ideas have come from looking at magazines and photos online which rarely provide a sense of outside the box thinking. Go against the grain when it comes to what you hear or what you’ve seen in magazines. Below are two trends to consider when it comes to your home’s interior design.
Concrete kitchen If you want to give your kitchen a unique look and feel, consider concrete as your choice of countertop. Concrete can not only be customizable to your space, the colors and amount of textures are seemingly endless. Because concrete is poured, you can shape it into any shape imaginable, which can translate into some pretty spectacular kitchen countertops. Although you can do this project yourself at a much cheaper price, we recommend leaving the work to a professional. The drawbacks of doing the project yourself can outweigh the price of hiring a professional if you don’t know exactly what you are doing. Turn to glass Glass can be incorporated into just about any remodeling project, regardless of scope or budget. Many homeowners are considering glass for kitchen remodels such as their backsplashes. A glass backsplash, coupled with creative concrete countertops can create a unique space that will last a lifetime. There are many colored glass options and designs available that can meet any design preference. For small kitchen spaces, glass countertops or restoration glass in kitchen cabinets can open the space up and make the room feel much roomier. The options listed above are just two design opportunities you should consider when it comes to your home’s interior design. Remember to think outside the box for maximum affect.
