Give your cabinets new life.


Cabinet pulls, knobs and handles come in surprisingly diverse styles, which is why they are great inexpensive decorative accessories. If your kitchen cabinets need a makeover, replace old-style knobs with more modern options. You can do the same with bathroom vanities — even bedroom dressers can benefit from the swap.

Replace bathroom accessories with newer models.


A bathroom remodel can get pretty pricey, but there are easy ways to revamp the space without spending a fortune. First, replace older bathroom faucets and towel bars or hooks with newer, contemporary models. If you do this, make sure to upgrade everything at once — including the bathroom light and shower fixtures — so the room doesn’t seem mismatched.

Use hardware as decorative accessories.


Curtain rods and holdbacks, as well as shelf brackets and switch plates, are all necessary elements, so why not make them beautiful as well? Even though it might seem simple, opting for trendy metal brackets instead of typical wood will instantly leave your space feeling more contemporary.
