How do you decide when to restore or just replace? Does the age of the piece dictate or maybe the cost? There is no clear right answer. The right answer is whatever scenario works best for you. Cost, sentimental value, or desire could all play a roll when choosing whether to restore or replace with something new. Character pieces could be incorporated in so many ways. For example, antique doors for the pantry, corbels around the vent hood or at passthrough openings, shutters, artwork, and even furniture pieces. Adding new wall trim to an otherwise blank wall could be a way to add character and restore a vibe you love that maybe your home never had. Be creative and think outside the box.. you’ll be amazed at what you can design!
