LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Oct. 12, 2012) - Transforming your home is a decision not be rushed - it takes time, money and a flair for design to get your home perfect, and just the way you want it. When it comes to redecorating, there's a tendency to want to strip everything and start afresh which can be an expensive business; sometimes all your home requires for a makeover is a few statement pieces such as a contemporary electric fireplace, a feature wall or a striking piece of furniture can make all the difference.
Introducing a feature wall to rooms in your home can dramatically rejuvenate your interior. If one wall stands out in particular, such as a chimney breast then choose this one as your feature. Similarly, feature walls only work if they are the first thing you notice when you walk into a room so it's no good having your feature on the same wall as the door as your efforts will go largely unnoticed. If the room is quite small opt for a single block colour as a vibrant pattern can swamp the room.
If you can tie your feature wall in with a fireplace that's even better. A hot look right now in the interior stakes is exposed brick chimney breasts - choose a fireplace that will compliment the rustic brick style such as a wrought iron style stove or a contemporary sleek electric fireplace in polished steel or chrome. It's the perfect way to introduce a cosy feel to your home. If you're looking for inspiration try Direct Fireplaces' range of wall mounted electric fires - there are statement styles to suit everybody.
Sometimes you don't even need to pick up a paintbrush to transform your home. Statement pieces of furniture can work wonders too. Items such as a grandfather clock in the hallway, or a piano in a reception room will add a great sense of grandeur, as will an oversized mirror with gold gilding or a vintage dining table.
As they say, it's the small things in life that make a difference!
