5 Tips to Give Your Home that Wow Factor


To obtain a "wow" factor when decorating your home, you must have something that is unexpected. Many homes have similar items, such as beige walls, furniture in a neutral color, and wall to wall carpeting. Create that “wow” factor by accentuating a spectacular natural feature in the room like oversized windows or a fireplace and adding something unexpected like a contrasting fabric, a touch of eye-catching color, or an oversized work of art.

When you want to add those special touches that can make your home a showstopper, follow these 5 basic decorating tips to make your home stand out from the crowd:

1. Introduce Boldness


Many of today's homes feature a neutral color palette of soft grays, whites and beiges. A bold, bright and eye-catching fabric on accessories like throw pillows and rugs gives the space instant drama. Select florals, graphic patterns or bold geometrics in black and white to attract attention. Paint one wall in an interesting color, or add texture with natural brick or stone.


2. Go Big!


Choose large pieces of artwork and accessories that add to the room, especially if your home has a more contemporary feeling. Edgy contemporary, mid-century modern, Hollywood glam, and coastal style furniture do well with large scale paintings, massive area rugs, huge lighting fixtures, and oversized pieces of sculpture. Keep in mind that one large, statement piece is infinitely better than several smaller pieces.

3. Create a Focal Point in the Room

We know that decorating a room around a focal point adds immediate interest and defines the character of the room. A free-standing fireplace, an elaborate bar, or a cabinet with interior lighting to highlight a collection can become the focal point and add high visual impact. A game table in the entertainment space can become a focal point, just as an executive desk is the attention-grabber in a home office and a large cabinet commands attention in a dining room.


4. Personalize your Space

Include unique items to personalize the room and give them individuality. A traditional stunning grandfather clock can add interest to a home with modern style. Choose an unusual item like a baker's rack, a floor mirror, or a dramatic folding screen to make your home unique.

5. Choose Quality

Quality shows, and you will want to express your good taste by selecting pieces with elegance. Choosing top quality pieces for the room is especially important when you select your furniture. Investing in name brands with a reputation for exceptional construction and timeless designs can give you the durability and beauty that will last to protect your investment.
