While I am cleaning I have been looking around at all the changes we have made since we bought the place. I think sometimes it is the little details that can make all the difference.
So I sharing with you a couple of little ways we changed things, maybe it will inspire you to look at the little details that might improve your home.
Let's be honest, they don't add a whole lot of style to a room do they? Practical, yes. They let the room breathe and help prevent dampness, but I am afraid I loathe the look of them. We had them in two of our bedrooms. So I replaced them with this...
I am not totally sure if they still make this small size of grill but they do custom orders so they probably would be able to do something similar. Now this design has a large open shape and we didn't want bugs to come into the room, so I bought a piece of aluminium mesh from Halfords and it was enough to make two backing pieces for my air vents. Problem solved.
Another little detail was added from Jali in our kitchen. We replaced some wooden doors with some glass ones on our cabinets. Unfortunately the edge of the shelving inside had been done very badly and so didn't look too hot showing through the glass. I bought some edging strip and attached it to the edge of the shelves and now it looks luverly. It's one of these little details that has made a lovely finishing touch to the styling of the room.
