Guest post! Arcadian Home Decor….
They say that God is in the details and this especially holds true when it comes to home decor. Sometimes one gets so involved in the bigger picture that one tends to neglect the smaller elements, not realizing that a space is often defined by its accessories. An inexpensive interior trick is to be attentive to hardware like door numbers, door knockers, and iron rods, and focus all your creative energies on it. This way a complete overhaul is avoided, and a new look is achieved without breaking the bank.

First impressions are often the last, so it is imperative to make an imprint on the neighborhood. House or door numbers don’t have to just be practical but should also give a glimpse of what lies inside. Preferably they should compliment the house decor and for a visual impact, ensure the numbers are fixed on a contrasting backdrop.

In this tech dominated world, door knockers are being replaced by fancy security systems and intercom speakers. However, while useful, nothing is as charming as a quirky or a beautiful door knocker. Antique and brass nickel door knockers are quite popular, but one can go either contemporary or classic.

Give a makeover to the entire house cabinetry by replacing the knobs on it. Remember to match it with your†home accessories and furniture and try not to be overwhelmed with the different kinds of styles, types and shades. Decorative cabinet knobs can be custom made as well and are easy to install, since they generally require only one screw or bolt.

Pulls are generally limited when it comes to styling, however that doesnít mean they wonít enhance the look of your cabinets. Pulls are more streamlined and would be suited for a contemporary home. The elongated form can also be more advantageous since they allow a better grip and suitable for those suffering with arthritis or any form of motor disability.

Towel bars, toilet paper holders, shower curtain rods, and hooks are also considered to be a part of bathroom hardware, so choose wisely. Use only quality products since the bathroom is the most used and abused part of the home.†Toilet paper holders should be mounted on the side of a cabinet or the back wall of the toilet. Install rods for hanging up towels and clothes. Add rings in the bathroom, since they occupy less space and break the symmetry. Lastly ensure that the hardware matches the bathroom dÈcor. So if you have an antique faucet, then make sure the hand towel rack next to is classically styled.
Switch Plates & Wall Outlet Covers
Switch plates and wall outlet covers are one of the most neglected†home accessories, which is unfortunate since they can really make a visual imprint. Decorative switch plate and wall outlet covers can provide a significant alteration to a room and can be customized according to the electrical wiring outlets. The best part? All your wiring gets concealed and you get to choose from an eclectic variety of styles like brushed nickel, wood, copper, metallic and even ceramic.
