Have a boring, boxy room that needs something to make it look better?  Try these 10 ways to add architectural details that will upgrade a boring room.

These ways to upgrade a boring room with architectural details are the BEST! Now I know what I'm going to do to make my boxy living room look more interesting! Pinning!

As most of you know by now, I live in a builder-grade home, and am on a mission to make it look more “designer” and less “builder”.

One of the things that is missing from a lot of builder grade homes (which most designer homes have) are architectural details, and my house is no different. The walls and ceilings are plain drywall with nothing to add any interest but some popcorn on the ceiling…another pet peeve! (Click here to see my post on 5 Ways to Hide Popcorn Ceilings if you want some ideas on how to deal with that issue.)

But I digress.  Back to the plain walls problem.

Fortunately, if you are willing to do a few DIY jobs, it isn’t that hard or expensive to fix this issue! And there’s an added bonus that a lot of these projects can actually add value to your home.

So that’s why I have been on a mission to add at least one type of architectural detail to every room in my house (including the stairway!)…and I’m almost there! The only rooms I have left are the guest bedroom and the laundry room. So I guess you now know where some of my upcoming room makeovers will be focused :)

    I really want to add architectural details to our home and am a bit hesitant until I figure out exactly what I want to do. I had not considered tiles on the wall before, this post is a great resource for ideas.

      Thanks, Leanna! I’m a big fan of architectural details, but since they are somewhat permanent, I agree that you need to figure out what will go with your home before jumping into it. Thanks for stopping by!
