  • Opening Intro -

    When completing a home renovation, your end goal is to increase the value of your home with tangible upgrades.

    However, an additional goal is to upgrade the overall aesthetic appeal of your home since you and your family are the ones that see it daily.


We’ve comprised a list of four small, yet powerful upgrades that can create a stunning ‘wow’ factor after your renovation is complete.

Staircase Balusters

Many contractors use standard stairway balusters that often have a very common and generic feel. Adding in high-end balusters creates an instant impact of grandeur in any area where there’s a staircase. Staircases tend to be one of the first things people see when they enter your home.

Upgraded balusters from ironwork with a décor pattern and adding a staircase runway of rich, deeply colored wood instantly elevates the look of your entire entryway, setting the tone for your whole home.

Transom Windows

Adding transom windows into any room instantly makes it feel larger and taller. Additionally, transom windows allow natural sunlight to pour into the room, giving it the look of being larger and more upscale. Flooding sunlight light has become a major design trend that sets a cheery tone in any room. This is a touch that can also be seen from the exterior of your home. It can add to the curb appeal of your house as well as adding some function.

Elegant Door Knobs and Cabinet Handles

When remodeling your home, one of the most impactful areas you have to make a statement that showcases luxury is by door handles and cabinet handles. For example, adding in level door handles is a major upgrade from the standard twist knobs.

Changing out cabinet handles for ones that have extra-decadent craftsmanship is another way to make a bold statement that has the power to upgrade the look of the entire room. Simple hardware can give your home an upgraded and modern look, while more decorative hardware can create an artistic or even luxurious appearance.

Upgraded A/C Vent Covers

Though A/C vent covers are quite small, they are little in every room of your house. Contracts typically use low-grade metal vents in white or off white that just as generic as the residential AC services they work for. Adding A/C vents that are made from wrought iron or a highly upgraded stained wood instantly adds an element of luxury to every room.

The wrought iron vent covers have the ability to provide a major architectural impact due to the patterns that can be created in wrought ironwork. Don’t just focus on the decorative touches when doing a renovation, but consider the useful and practical things as well.

You can imagine how these simple, yet impactful upgrades can set a luxury, high-end tone for your entire home. These are all relatively inexpensive upgrades to make. However, when you are doing a home renovation, these small additions can create a high luxe look and feel.
