Are you sick of cookie-cutter spaces? Accent pieces, whether free-standing or built-in, can transform your space and give it that unique feel. Here are a few interior design ideas that will help you spruce up your home, brought to you by leading independent estate agency in Malta, Frank Salt Real Estate.
How’s it Hangin’?
Take your décor to new heights with a hanging chair! Whether you choose to place it indoors or outdoors, as long as you’re willing to take a chance on a piece that’s a little over-the-top, the effect is eye-catching and undeniably fun… which is probably what brought you here in the first place.
Get Fired Up
Nothing makes a statement quite like a fireplace. If you’re not into the classic look, there’s a plethora of creative, architectural fireplace designs around to suit your space.
Creating a focal piece using artwork can create impact with minimal commitment. The art piece can take the form of an interesting sculpture, a multi-panel piece, or a gallery-type display of frames.
Never underestimate the effect interesting taps can have! If you have room in the budget for one high-end bathroom feature, make it a quality tap. Display it against a backdrop of plain tiles or a neutral wall to make it stand out, like an expensive piece at a high-end jewellery store.
Area rugs, especially with the right pattern, can really transform a space, define rooms, add more interest to an area and help group furniture pieces.
…and Justice for Wall
(Respect to the Metallica fans that got that one. As for the rest of you, no words…)
If you’re looking to add dimension to an otherwise flat area, make that wall the room’s focal piece. Pleasing both to the eye and the touch, layering in textured paper – be it through wooden effects or urban tiles – brings a new depth and visual interest to any space, and is one of the most effective interior design ideas that makes any space stand out.
Shed some light with a stylish floor lamp and make the perfect statement with an oversized one. Whether it’s industrial, sculptural or retro you’re going for, there’s a range of lighting pieces out there waiting to illuminate your life.
Turn up the Volume
To add a feeling of luxury when accessorising your space, go for voluminous pieces – those that have weight to them, rather than going for lighter, flimsy ones that look like they’re made of plastic.
Go Big or … Go Home
Create impact with items that are large-scale and grand. Hiking up the size of your décor creates a big impression. Opt for a massive bookcase that takes up an entire wall, or an oversized thick-framed mirror that leans against the wall instead of hanging.
As a leading independent estate agency in Malta, we advise limiting your splurging to statement pieces, which have the ability to upgrade your home’s sense of luxury. And remember not to commit one of the design sins; don’t match finishes perfectly, coordinate them!
