Many homeowners take great pride in their meticulously decorated home. Some household fixtures, however, detract from their methodically designed humble abode. Everything from air vents to loose electronic cords attract attention, but not in a good way. Turn these common household eyesores into sights for sore eyes with these inspired and straightforward DIY ideas that disguise even the most unsightly home features.
 
1. Garage Door Opener: If you've converted your garage into a playroom for the kids or a home office for dad, you may be wondering how to cover up that garage door control panel attached to the wall. If you are, you can transform some scrap wood, a small art frame, and a stylish doorknob into a clever secret door to keep up with the room's decor.
 
2. Air Vents: Air vents can turn any whimsical oasis into an industrial-looking living space. To add your personal flair to a seemingly insignificant detail, pick up a radiator screen from your nearest hardware store and make your very own decorative vent cover. Paint it the same color to match your current wall hue.
 
3. Wall Protrusions: What do you do when you have thermostats, outlets, and light switches on one wall that detract from the overall design style? You camouflage them. By pairing these practical, but unsightly home fixtures with a gallery of framed artwork, these eyesores blend seamlessly into the background yet remain easily accessible.
 
4. Router: Technology is making internet speed faster every day, but the aesthetics of the equipment leave much to be desired. Instead, try this vintage book cover to hide routers, modems, or cables. This simple disguise keeps your wi-fi signal strong without sacrificing style.

Not only does a statement piece add personality to your home, but it also becomes a good talking point for your guests. Knowing how to incorporate it into your current home decor is easier than it looks. If you have your eye on a certain statement piece, but don't know how to tie it into your room, the following tips are for you.
 
1. Less is more: In a room with multiple statement pieces, nothing is a statement piece. If you decide to incorporate a bold piece of furniture into a room, make sure that the items around it are less eye-catching. When designing and decorating, it's all about balance.
