When it comes to adding wow factor to your home, the statement less is more applies. Creating a focal point can become overwhelming if you add too much but the opposite will also apply if you don’t create an impact leaving the end result a little well, underwhelming.

You want something that is eye-catching and really catches people’s attention when they visit your home for all the right reasons.
So how exactly should you go about adding the wow factor to your home?
Creating a feature ceiling can really draw attention when people visit your home. Depending on the size of your home and the height of your ceiling you have a few options you can consider when it comes to adding the wow factor to a ceiling.
A bold and impactful light feature can really pull together the look and vibe of a room. Opt for spotlights for a modern style room or go elegant with a diamante lamp shade for pure opulence and class. Or even design your own light fitting, such as lights that hang down into the center of the room.
Another way to add a statement to a room is to add ceiling tiles. Perfect for high ceilings, ceiling tiles can pull a room together with little effort. Choose to contrast your look with a dark style ceiling and light walls or cover up a damaged ceiling with white tiles for a quick fix to really brighten up a room.
Add a splash of color and creativity to your color scheme. Mix up your style by adding a contrasting color to a feature wall in your home. Try a navy wall with yellow or pink accessories such as mirrors or photo frames and wall art.
Pair your statement color with whites or neutral shades so it doesn’t become overpowering. Use this wall as your main focus in the room and match your accessories with it to really create a room that leaves an impression.
Go all out with a stunning floor in one room or throughout your home. Aim for a minimalist look that really really allows your statement flooring to stand out.
Rescue original wooden flooring and bing it to life with some careful restoration or go for a whole new look. Tiled floors are really in right now for hallways and kitchens. Choose a style to compliment your theme in the main rooms. Or liven up a simplistic design with a modern style flooring out of the ordinary. People have used pennies covered in resin to form a hardwearing floor for kitchens and hallways. Or how about a comic book flooring to really bring your passion into your home!
Whatever option you consider, remember when it comes to making a statement, you don’t want to make it too busy. Focus on one area or one style to create the look and keep the rest of the room understated to add impact.
For example, arrange a floor lamp and armchair in front of a window next to a statement fireplace and sweeping curtains on your windows with well-placed accessories that compliment the book rather than add to the statement you are trying to make.
