How to add the Wow factor to a room

Updated: Apr 12, 2019

Is your bedroom, living room, kitchen or bathroom looking a bit drab? If so, then why not add the 'wow' factor to your walls by adding colour and character to transform the space.

Just think of your walls as blank canvasses waiting for you to add life to them, by adding a fresh coat of paint or wallpaper, or both to them can make a real statement, and if you need a bit of inspiration Drew Decor Store can assist you in making your ideas come together to create your very own wow factor.

Creative with Paint

By adding a fresh coat of paint is an easy way to add the 'wow' factor to any room as you could easily paint each wall a slightly different colour, or you may paint the dado rail one colour and then paint the wall above it a complimentary colour.

Creative with Wallpaper

Drew Decor Store, Sheffield recognises the overwhelming obstacle of choosing a great wallpaper as there are too many options!

I believe that in order to be able to make the right choice you need to ask yourself; What is the room being used for? If you're wallpapering a living room, kitchen or other entertainment space you can opt for colour and bold patterns for a more lively energy.

Bedrooms tend to call for a minimal, serene patterns with quiet shades that create a warm and romantic feeling.

Ask yourself; Does all the room need wallpapering or will you be accenting one wall?

Know your patterns

Horizontal patterns and designs widen and open up a room but can also make the ceiling appear lower.

Vertical patterns and designs make the ceiling appear higher than it is.

Large patterns work best in large rooms, and small patterns work best in small rooms.

Dark patterns will make the room seem smaller, whereas lighter wallpapers open and widen a space making it appear larger.

Damask and floral patterns with fine lines create a romantic atmosphere, especially if muted or pastel colours are used.

Bold, geometric patterns are best for contemporary and modern rooms while elegant damasks and stripes create a traditional look.

Drew Decor Store, Sheffield will be able to help you decide on how best to decorate your home to ensure your home has the 'wow' factor specific to your taste.
