Mrs. Fixit: Adding Architecture

Whether you're building, remodeling or looking to add a little interest to your home, moldings and archetectural pieces can be the answer.

Adding crown molding to your home has a great return. It looks amazing and it makes your home more appealing if you ever try to sell it.

This stair case is pretty all on its own, but look how much personality and presence these finials add to the railings.

You can order them online or at your local home improvement center.

A mirror or picture that looks a little skimpy can be built up with a pediment like this one. It makes the mirror fill in the space and feel like it fits the room better.

Speaking of skimpy the mantel on this fireplace was a little small for my taste so I found these great carved pieces for either side of the firebox and it looks great, much more substantial.

See how adding a little architectural interest to your home can make a big difference. I'm Mrs. Fixit and it's just that simple!
