We notice that people update their bedrooms a lot. Beds and wardrobes move around quite a bit. And of course it's fun to buy a new bedspread or comforter every few years. People who are really ambitious will repaint as well.
We'd like to suggest that adding decorative hardware is yet another way to update a bedroom without heavy lifting.
Mirrors Enlarge Bedrooms While Adding Intimacy
We've written about using mirrors to make smaller bathrooms feel larger and how ceiling-hung mirrors make a classy statement about a room.
In a bedroom, wall mirrors add intimacy while still making the space appear larger. Put a mirror over a bed like this one from our Carolina Crystal collection and you can see how this works:
With proper placement, wall mirrors reflect light and add depth to smaller bedrooms, guest spaces, and home offices:
As you can see from above, mirrors can also be used to complement other room decor.
Our mirrors use the highest quality brass for rails. They come in round, oval, rectangular, arched, and landscape shapes. All are frameless and beveled.
We also have rear-mounted wall mirrors that tilt up and down. They are well-suited for bathrooms, dressing areas, and walk-in closets.
Take a look at all our wall mirrors to see the variety of shapes and preview 17 finishes.
Put New Knobs and Pulls on Old Furniture
Don't toss out that old highboy or dresser just yet. A new finish or coat of paint can bring it back to life - and so can a new set of knobs or pulls for the drawers or cabinet doors.
We have an exceptional collection of decorator brass cabinet hardware that come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and finishes.
Are you looking to replace worn handles on an antique or heirloom? Consider this traditional-looking pull with an antique pewter finish:
It can be installed horizontally as well.
This simple, round cabinet knob finished in brushed bronze is a good example of a minimalist design:
Finish: Polished Nickel
This knob, shown in a shiny polished brass finish, reminds us of a stick shift!
Here's a knob from our Pipeline collection, finished in matte gray:
Pipeline products come in eight finishes. A companion collection, Camo, offers a knob in camouflage green:
Wall-Mounted Votive Candle Holders
Lastly, we suggest one or two wall-mounted candle holders - perhaps one on each side of the bed to create soft, romantic light?
Our brass candle holders safely burn votive-sized candles. The hardware is made from brass, of course, and each piece includes a thick glass container that easily lifts out from the holder.
We don't often choose favorites, but if we had to, we'd nominate this votive candle holder from our Monte Carlo collection, shown here in an antique copper finish:
We really love how the fleur-de-lis detail shows up on the backplate, a key feature for this collection.
