If you don’t like the ordinary, we invited you to continue reading for a few tips on how to design in unexpected places in your home.
3 Ways to Design in Unexpected Places
Radiators are probably the number one thing that no one thinks about when they are designing their rooms. Everyone goes for a bog-standard white design that you see in every house everywhere.
However, radiators actually take up quite a lot of space and are very visible when you walk into a room so are the perfect place to experiment with some design.
You might also look at buying some radiators with a cool shape such as the ones at Trade Radiators, or you could think about painting your radiators in a unique way. A radiator is a big blank canvas, so don’t be afraid to get creative!
Transforming your radiators is bound to take people by surprise and they’ll be wondering why they’ve never thought of doing it themselves.
➋ The Kettle
Everyone has a kettle in their kitchen, and unfortunately, nearly everyone’s kettle looks exactly the same. You’re probably thinking that a kettle is just a kettle, and it can’t act as a design feature. This is where you’re wrong!
A great looking kettle can become the centerpiece of your kitchen and give it the design upgrade it needs. The best part is that a new kettle won’t break the bank, and there are some super cool kettles right at the lowest end of the price range.
Kettles come in all shapes, colors, and sizes, so you can go to town when choosing a kettle that will fit in perfectly with your existing design. You also use a kettle every single day, so it’s a really nice thing to invest in.
The final suggestion we have for you if you want to squeeze in some extra design is to choose some cool faucets. This is another area people often don’t put much thought into but can transform a bathroom if done properly.
Faucets can actually have a big influence on the vibe of a bathroom so it’s pretty important to go for something that suits your style. As with the kettles, there are loads of styles available, so you can be sure there’s something for you.
