A couple easy things I like to add extra details to some of my builds are dirty shop rags made from Kleenex type tissues,saturated with a 50/50 mixture of white glue and water. I shape them while wet,let them dry then paint orange and use black wash to dirty them up before placing them around. Another trick for your floor would be some thinned down acrylic black wash in high floor traffic areas for realistic grime. Looks like you're having fun with this build and that's what it's all about isn't it !

A year later I know but this is great advice and a great mini tutorial. Thank you for your input and feedback Tom.

Looks great! The grime on the door, the frame and the light switch is perfect!
