Making A Statement In Your Manchester Home

Creating a style statement in your Manchester home can be easier than you think to achieve. Whatever the size of your home, or whether you have a flat or a larger property, you need to think carefully about the room itself and how much space you have to work with.

One of the best ways that you can make a statement in your home is by picking out a key colour that you use as a theme to run throughout your whole room. This works best in the living or dining area, as this is a common place for people to gather and for the family to enjoy.

Try to choose a colour that blends well with the furniture that you have. You may not have the luxury of buying new items of furniture, so try to work best with what you already have.

You may want to create a statement wall, which can be achieved using a darker tone of the colour that you have chosen for the room. You may also want to go to your local DIY store and choose a wallpaper style that covers just one wall in your living area. This can be a focal point for the room, and would work best if you have a fireplace or central feature on this wall.

Other ways that you can create a statement in your home is by choosing iconic pieces of furniture. Chairs are often a good way of achieving this look. You could invest in iconic pieces of furniture and striking chair shapes, which you can place in a corner of your room to create a really stylish impression. Retro chairs tend to have smooth lines and curvy shapes that immediately catch attention. There are a lot of different kinds of modern chairs you can choose from; currently the contemporary acrylic look is quite popular. This might also work best in a dining room area; perhaps you could choose different colours of the same style of chair to go around your dining room table. This is a popular choice for many families who want to introduce a quirky and interesting look to their dining areas.

Choosing accessories can also help you to create a statement in your home. This includes paintings and artwork on the wall as well as ornaments. Choosing artwork should be considered carefully, but you do not necessarily need to spend a lot of money on this artwork. Local supermarkets can often sell interesting pieces of art which would look great in any room and are affordable prices. Ornaments can also be picked up at a reasonable price, and these can really be style statements especially if they are tall pieces that catch your eye when you walk into the room.

Doing all of these things may be a little overwhelming for your home, but be bold and brave with certain elements such as a retro chair or a bright wall and you're sure to make a statement. Have a home to make Manchester residents a little green with envy!
