When your home is looking a little dull, you need some way to introduce some excitement and wonder into it. You should be able to walk through your front door and be amazed by what your home looks like each time you do. You might not have the decor budget to make your home look like a palace or a stately home, but that shouldn’t stop you from adding some glamor and a little bit of wow factor to your house. One of the ways to make a big difference is to use some eye-catching features that transform a room.
A Stand-out Lighting Fixture
Lights might be functional, but that doesn’t mean that they have to be boring. Your home’s lighting fixtures can really stand out if you choose the right style. Installing a Sogni Di Cristallo chandelier will certainly provide a talking point for anyone who comes into your home. Something so ostentatious might not be for everyone, but there are plenty of other options for attractive lighting fixtures. You can make use of ceiling lights and wall lamps, as well as explore freestanding lamps to play with light around the room. Lighting fixtures look particularly eye-catching in the evening when it’s time to turn them on.
An Eye-catching Fireplace
Do you have a fireplace or chimney in your home? Many people feel unsure about what to do with them, especially if they don’t actually use the fireplace to light fires. Should you board it up? Should you turn it into a decorative fireplace? A fireplace can give you an excellent opportunity to add a stand-out feature to the room. Whether you put in a dummy mantel that isn’t functional or you replace an old grate with a more modern gas or biofuel fire or perhaps install a traditional wood-burning stove, you can make it the centerpiece of the room.
A Sparkling Mirror
Playing around with mirrors is a smart way to do something different in your home. Mirrors are excellent for making a room look bigger, so they’re great to use if you have a smaller space that needs to be revitalized. Mirrors come in all shapes and sizes, so you can find something that works for you. If you want a mirror that really stands out, you might choose one that’s particularly large, and that maybe even covers a whole wall. Another option is to think carefully about the frame and choose one that draws the eye.
A Tongue-Wagging Piece of Art
Art can really be a talking point in your home. The right piece of art can both give your guests something to talk about and ensure you have something that you love to look at. If it’s the right piece of art for you, you won’t get tired of looking at it. It could be something that you hang on the wall, but you might also choose a statue or ornament that you love.
Put some wow into your home by choosing some stand-out features to impress all of your visitors.
