Your home is more than a place to rest your head at night. Your home is, often, a hub for gathering and entertaining. Whether it’s birthdays, holidays or just having friends over on the weekend, you should feel pride in showing off your home and the unique pieces inside.
When it comes to decorating, investing in bold, eye-catching statement pieces may not seem like a priority, but in reality, it’s a great way to add uniqueness and personality to any room in your home. Plus, these pieces can act as inspiration for the overall aesthetic of the room.
Don’t be fooled; statement pieces can be just as functional as stylish. These are some of our favorites.
1. Quality Dining Room Table
If your family loves to host holidays, game nights, or large family dinners, a custom dining room table is the perfect addition to the home. Dining room tables are often not paid as much attention to when it comes to design, but they are actually a significant part of your entertaining space and don’t need to look like your cookie-cutter table. Custom wood table tops are a unique way of adding architectural interest to an otherwise everyday space while still providing the functionality that your family needs.
2. Bold Kitchen Island
Like the dining room, the kitchen is a significant entertaining space for many families. Investing in a bold kitchen island is an investment that can ultimately transform the look of the entire kitchen. One of the most appealing aspects of this type of renovation is the fact that there are so many options to choose from — whether you prefer marble, quartz, woodblock, or granite. In addition to the variety of materials available, there are just as many colors and patterns to choose from so that you can truly customize your kitchen to fit your lifestyle.
3. A Cozy Fireplace
Who doesn’t love to curl up in front of a fireplace? If your home has the structure in place, a working fireplace can add an element of warmth in addition to its stylistic benefits. There are two types of fireplaces to choose from — wood-burning and gas-vent. Each has its benefits and can vary in price, but both will ultimately be excellent statement pieces in just about any home.
Wood-burning fireplaces require room for a chimney to be installed which is important to consider before deciding. Direct-vent gas fireplaces are easier to install since they can be attached to any exterior wall. This type of statement piece will ultimately come down to the overall aesthetic and utility you want the room to have. If you prefer the authenticity of collecting and burning wood on a cold winter evening, then a wood-burning fireplace is the preferred option. If you’re looking for a more modern aesthetic, you could install a sleek gas fireplace.
It’s your home, and these are your statement pieces. Have fun experimenting and shopping for ideas. It’s up to you to make your home as unique as you want it to be.
