Hardware is a fun and trendy way to provide style and allure. Much like hinges and pulls, which adorn kitchen cabinets, it can add spark to interior design, the addition of strap hinges and lift handles gives curb appeal to the exterior design. These often dark colored accessories with a wrought iron look are a throw-back to carriage houses—a rising trend in today’s demand for the old world look. And with a cost of ten to twenty dollars per piece, and a do-it-yourself installation, it is a quick and simple way to get old world charm without an out-of-this-world price tag.
Stained glass is developed by adding metal oxides to glass that is molten (produced from melting silica with other items) and continuously kept melted inside a clay pot over a furnace. The type and volume of oxide included determines the shade and radiance of color; copper oxides lead to green glass, while cobalt makes blue glass and gold makes red glass. Nowadays, the red color is made with less costly chemicals and produces a more brilliant red.
A garage door should reflect the style of a home. There are many design elements to consider for this often overlooked part of the home. The garage door is, for many, the most often used and viewed part of the home. Yet when it comes to the design, it is often ignored. The most traditionally used look is the "raised panel." Most home builders stick to this option when designing a home, but this standard option doesn’t have to mean standard design. Customizing the windows, adding hardware, and coordinating colors can give the entire house a whole new look.
