Feeling a little overwhelmed by the idea of redesigning your space? Consider making a style statement to give your average room a whole new look. If you got your eye on a statement piece that is a little out of your style element, don’t be afraid to take the plunge! There’s always a way to make the most epic piece work in your home.
- 1. CHOOSE A FOCAL POINT
It’s always wise to consider how much you want your statement piece to steal the show! There are certain pieces that are naturally secondary, such as accents. If you’re really looking to up the wow factor, consider a statement furniture piece that will be the main part of the room, like a sofa, bed or dining table. Making a bold statement with your largest piece of furniture can instantly transform your space in a big way!
- 2. LET COLOUR INTO YOUR LIFE
Don’t get us wrong, we love a well-curated neutral palette - but we also love a splash of colour! Vibrantly coloured statement pieces moves the eye throughout the room, making your space instantly new and exciting.
- 3. PLAY WITH PATTERN
If you statement piece is patterned, don’t be afraid to combine it with other patterned accents, especially if they differ in scale. For instance, a large pattern with bold stripes will pair best with a smaller print to ensure your room is balanced.
- 4. DON’T FORGET ABOUT SCALE
When you’re making a statement, bigger is not always better! It’s important to ensure your statement piece is proportionate in relation to your other furniture. In addition, your space should always remain functional. You won't be able to use things like a coffee table, end table, or lamp the way you need to if it's too tall or too short.
