Switch Out Your Lightswitch Cover
Are you still unsure about this interior design but you still want to incorporate it into your home? Start with your light switch covers, instead of getting those plain white or cream lightswitch covers, swap it with copper covers. It’s subtle and very inexpensive. You can also substitute your boring light switches with vintage looking toggle switch.
Upcycled Steampunk Coffee Table
Got some old gadgets or scrap metals laying in your home? Turn them into a coffee table! Simply create a base table, could be made of excess pipes and then a sheet of metal in which you’ll weld or place old scrap metals. If this is too complicated for you, you can have it made by your local carpenter or someone who specializes in metal crafts.

Another easy way to “inject” steampunk in your home is by installing industrial pipe brackets. They’re pretty easy to do and comes in many styles, colors, and shapes. These brackets are not only charming, they’re also pretty useful and can be used as is, as a shelf bracket or do something unconventional like a bike storage.
Unique Wall Decors
Show off your love for this style by hanging a clock made designed with clock wheels, compass, globe and the sun. How steampunk could you be with this decor? How about an oversized gear wheel decor? With this style, there’s a lot you can do especially with wall decors.
Take a trip to your local flea market and scour the best steampunk decor you can find. When looking for figurines or decor, try to find something that is both visually appealing and also functional. Like this Octopus Lantern, a table or a desk lamp, or this beautiful glass light bulb vases.
