Want to add some pizzazz to your home decor? Try one of these simple decorating ideas to make a statement in your home.If you want to add a little punch to your home décor, one of the best ways to do that is with a statement piece. You can make a statement in a variety of ways, from wall treatments to furniture. The idea behind a statement piece is to incorporate something unexpected and eye-catching.

Having that one bold or unique feature in the room makes it more dynamic. It helps keep your eye moving and creates intrigue.

Here are 5 ways you can make a statement in your décor:

Statement Décor Ideas

An accent wall

An accent wall can always be counted on to make a statement in a room. They work in any space – living room, kitchen, dining room, bedroom, even an entryway or hallway. If you aren’t comfortable going with something bold or colorful, simply deepening the neutral you already have on the walls will give the space some depth and create a more captivating look. If you are feeling bold and really want to make a statement, opt for a dramatic color or wallpaper as the accent.


Colorful and patterned pillows are one of the easiest ways to instantly add some pizzazz to your décor. A neutral sofa can be given a big pop of personality with some beautiful accent pillows. You can also transform an accent chair or a dining room banquette and make a bed more luxurious. Plus, the best part is that you can switch them out for the seasons or whenever you get tired of them.

An area rug

An area rug is a lot more than just something soft beneath your feet. It helps define the space and can be a big statement all on its own. If you don’t want any of your furniture to be colorful but you want a pop of pizzazz somewhere, try opting for a colorful area rug. Think of it like artwork for your floor.

An ottoman

An ottoman is one of the most versatile pieces in home décor. It can serve a variety of functional purposes but it can also be an unexpected dash of character. Try a bold color, captivating pattern or an unusual shape. They come in every size imaginable, so an ottoman can make a statement in a living room, dining room, bedroom or even a bathroom.

Light fixtures

Lighting is often an afterthought for most people when decorating their homes but it has a huge impact on your home’s design. There are so many stunning and innovative light fixtures on the market. A big, gorgeous chandelier is always eye-catching, for example, or floor lights that look like studio lights from a movie set. Get creative with your lighting to capture that “wow” factor.
