More and more people have a keen interest in interior design these days. Blogs, online shopping, and social media all offer design ideas and inspiration. That’s why creating your own Instagram worthy home has never been easier. Regardless of budget, there are many ways you can create the wow factor in your home. Here are some ideas on how to achieve it.
One way to create the wow factor in a room is to add color. There are some amazing wallpapers available online and in stores. Whether you want high contract geometric effect or retro florals, you can make a real impact. Painting is another way. Not only are there thousands of pre-mixed colors to choose from, you can have new ones made. Many companies have the technology to scan a picture of your desired color and recreate it.
Soft furnishings and other accessories are a great way to add color. Bright cushions or a large statement rug set in a neutral living room can create an amazing effect.
Another way to create a huge impact to a room is to add an aquarium. Filled with fish, planting and some cool lighting, it is guaranteed to be a conversation starter. You can place it on a unit or table or even have one built into the wall. They can even be used as a room divider! It is recommended to speak to a specialist about the kinds of fish to buy and how to look after them.
Art is a fabulous way to make your room stand out. A large canvas hung on a plain wall can make a statement. Check if there are any art fairs taking place near you. Sometimes you will find some unusual one-off pieces. Many artists will create limited edition prints of popular originals. If you fall in love with a piece that is out of your price range, you may be able to pick up a more affordable print instead.
Art isn’t limited to prints and paintings. Ornaments, statues and unusual table centerpieces can also make a real impact.
Lighting can make a huge difference in any room. Statement light fittings or well thought out mood lighting can be truly breathtaking.
Removing walls and creating large open spaced areas can transform your home. A beautifully fitted kitchen open plan to a family room, for example, is not only functional but can look incredible.
Bringing the outside in
An amazing way to create a wow is to add concertina doors to a room that accesses the garden. A wall of framed glass will make your room not only brighter but look bigger too. Concertina doors fold back on each other allowing the whole wall space to be fully opened up. You will feel like you are sitting in the garden. It will create an amazing social space for everyone to enjoy and is guaranteed to be a show stopper.
