  1. Make a Statement with a Gorgeous Rug

A beautiful rug can do wonders for a room. In an otherwise boring room, a rug can add pops of color, texture, and visual interest. Use your rug to tie your entire room together. A well-placed rug will make everything else brighter and more cohesive. 

Rugs can tie together different materials, artwork, your furniture, and more. They are also great for cozying up a space and making it feel warmer. An attention-grabbing rug will also draw the eye into the room instead of competing with it.

  1. Bring the Focus up With a Dining Room Lighting Fixture

A great lighting fixture can make a bold statement in your dining room. A showstopping fixture will be one of the first things someone sees when they enter the room. Your lighting fixture will draw the eye up and tie your whole dining room together. Think of your light fixture as a bow on top of a present.

Just because you have a small dining room, doesn’t mean you can’t be bold. A good fixture can actually make your room appear larger and grander. Have some fun here and use a fixture that reflects your unique personality.

  1. A Four-Poster Bed Will Wow in the Bedroom

A four-poster bed is an ultimate luxury. These beautiful statement pieces should be the center of your room. You can leave them bare or add drapery for added effect and texture. Four-poster beds look romantic, whimsical, and will steal the show in any bedroom.

If you use white linens on your four-poster bed, use white floor to ceiling drapes for your windows as well. This overall effect will be nothing short of breathtaking. Imagine waking up in a sea of white drapery, with tons of natural light pouring through.

  1. Statement Art Pieces on a Feature Wall

On a bland wall, art can make a beautiful statement piece. Create a feature wall, using a large painting, photo, wall treatment, or rug. Choose the wall your eye goes to first. This can be the main wall in a living room, your dining area, or your bedroom.

As a backdrop, choose a bold color to use from floor to ceiling. In terms of art or a rug, go big on the scale so it’s the main focus of your wall. To add some texture behind the artwork, consider adding wallpaper, wood, shiplap, or lighting.

  1. Built-Ins Make Great Statement Pieces for Living Room Walls

If your home came with beautiful built-ins, you scored a treasure. Built-ins add major character to your home. If your home didn’t come with built-ins already, you can add them by using furniture pieces.

Almost anything can give that built-in effect. You can use standard bookcases and add trim, molding, and wood to create a built-in look. Built-ins will become a focal point in your home. You’ll have a beautiful area to showcase photos and art.

You can also use curated items to make a feature wall. Think carefully about the items you choose here. You don’t want your feature wall to turn into a collection of random trinkets. Keep it clean, well thought out, and cohesive.

  1. Use a Bold Hood in the Kitchen

In the kitchen, a range hood is something that often gets overlooked. When you have a beautiful, piece of art as your hood, it can instantly become the showstopper of your kitchen. Your kitchen is the heart of your home. You want a hood that will do your kitchen justice.

Range hoods come in a wide variety of colors and materials. You can create your own to make sure it perfectly fits your space as well. A custom hood will also boost the value of your home. This focal point will give your kitchen a more luxurious and updated appearance.

  1. Statement Piece Furniture in the Bathroom

In the bathroom, you don’t have to buy a vanity from a big box store. For a showstopping piece, consider using a piece of furniture as your vanity. You can customize a dresser or chest of drawers with plumbing to make it a functioning bathroom sink.

Statement piece furniture doesn’t always get used for its original purpose. Making something your own is what will make the furniture a true work of art. Using a beautiful chest to create a sink for your bathroom is a cool take on the traditional cookie-cutter options.

How To Use Statement Pieces in Your Home

Statement pieces are a great way to show off your personality. They can bring dimension and character to an uninteresting space. When it comes to how to use them, the options are almost endless. From a statement light fixture to using art on a feature wall, you can create a beautiful focal point in almost any room.

Use a statement piece that adds value to your home. These pieces can bring in more resale value or just be something that brings value to you. However, you use them, you and your family will love admiring your centerpiece. If you’re ready to start looking for your perfect statement piece, take a look at the beautiful collections here.
