Ever wanted to create a beautiful home that stuns anyone that enters? If so, you’ve probably bought yourself a few gaudy pieces of furniture or decorations that have stood out. But in your quest to create an extravagant home, you’ve probably forgotten the all-important rule of going too far.

Every now and then, people like to try and decorate their homes in a number of ways, but they often go a little too far and they add a few too many things. The main reason why your home might look gaudy after a bit of redecorating is that you have too many statement pieces. Statement pieces are anything that stands out and take center stage, meaning they should always be grand, expensive and showy. So in this post, we’ll take a look at a few statement pieces in your home that you never want to skimp on.

Eye-Catching Aquariums
Aquariums can change the look of your house magnificently. It not only makes your place look good but also brings positive energy, phasing out all the negativity from your house. You can also add some live aquarium plants in your aquarium to enhance its beauty. So, whenever you look at the fish aquarium, it will make you feel calm and relaxed.

Extravagant stairs

Stairs are fantastic as statement pieces, especially if they take up a lot of space and are in a main hallway or room of your house. For some ideas on how great a good set of stairs can look, check out services like Designed Stairs. Stairs can seem a little boring, but they’re surprisingly fun to work with because of how much you can do to personalize them. Whether it’s picking unique types of materials or even adding different patterns, there’s a lot you can do with a high-quality set of stairs.

Wacky wallpaper

Wallpaper can also be a great statement piece. While it doesn’t need to be expensive or one-of-a-kind, it can be the main attraction in your room if you’re trying to create a certain type of feeling. We recommend taking a look through different unique wallpaper designs and using it as a base for your redecorating.

Breathtaking artwork

Art is a brilliant addition to any room, especially if you’re willing to go the extra mile and get a large painting that covers the entire wall. It’s one of the most popular luxury home features you could invest in and it’s always a great conversation starter with guests.

Exquisite rugs

A rug can quite literally take center stage in your home because it often sits in the middle of a room or underneath a coffee table. It’s a great statement piece because it can have a wonderful story behind it, or it could have unique patterns and designs that really stand out. A good rug can be quite pricey, so make sure you look for a reputable seller that can deliver something outstanding.

A crystal chandelier

For something truly incredible, why not consider a crystal chandelier? A chandelier is an amazing addition because it sparkles, reflects light and looks stunning in the right circumstances. However, you should consider how much work it takes to look after one because cleaning a chandelier can take a surprising amount of work. Make sure you’re ready for the time and effort investment if you want to get yourself a chandelier!
