Upgrade Your Home With Interior Architecture Elements
Up the ante of a plain Jane space by adding architectural details to your home with these clever buys.
Architectural elements play a big role in completing the design of your home, while also bringing layers of charm to each space. Whether you're finalizing a newly built home or remodeling your existing one, take a moment to think about the blank room — just walls, floors, ceiling — and what you can add to make the home truly your own.
Keep scrolling for ideas that don't break the bank, don't require a contractor to install and will instantly transform your home from basic to one full of character.
Exposed ceiling beams bring rustic appeal and definition to your space. These faux beams are a more affordable (and lighter!) option to solid wood beams, while still giving you the same look. After trimming the beams to fit, simply install the mounting plate and attach the beam with the included hardware — instant exposed beams.
Corbels are a quick and easy way to amp up the architectural elements in your home. This versatile piece of millwork adds style to a wide variety of spaces – under mantels, cabinets, countertops or shelves, to frame a doorway or to use as bookends. The solid wood corbel comes in eight hand painted hues and is distressed for an antiqued visage.
Whether you're working on a remodel or customizing your new build, start your enhancements from the top down. Crown molding is the polished touch to any room; it's visually appealing and also has the further benefit of hiding any imperfections where walls meet the ceiling.
Stunning front doors not only make a grand first impression, but they also establish structure and style to your interior. Fashioned from knotty alder, these Craftsman front doors make for an eye-catching entrance into your home. We love the provincial stain, but they come in five different shades to fit your home's color palette.
Don't forget your interior doors. They may be the workhorses of our homes, but they also deliver architectural beauty and finalize the look of each room. Made of solid pine wood, the traditional six-panel door is a timeless design that comes unfinished so that you can wax or stain it to match your interior.
Character-adding and jaw-dropping, architectural details transform spaces from blank boxes to rooms full of charm, warmth and panache. These 20 spaces are sure to inspire some stunning updates to your home.
