Interior Upgrades That Wow

Have you ever walked into a room and thought, wow? You’ve stopped and had a short intake of breath because something in that room just stood out at you and made you stop, for just a second. It is that wow factor that so many want when it comes to their home.


The good news is that the wow factor is more easily achieved than you might think. You don’t have to spend fortunes on huge kitchen renovations, bi-fold doors or master suites. By making a few small changes in your home you too can create that show-stopping moment that sees your guests stop in their tracks.

An exposed brick wall 


If you are lucky enough to be able to strip back your walls to uncover beautiful brickwork then maximising this design feature can have a huge impact on your home. While it is a trend that is finding favour in more and more households it is still an original feature that can add character, texture and warmth to a room. It is also a great way to showcase the age and history of your property and can transform the design concept of a room. Think rustic, country, industrial, they all lend themselves to and compliant an exposed brick wall. 


A fireplace 


A fireplace is the focal point of a room and can accentuate the design and feel of a room. Fireplaces can add value to your home and character to your room. Log Burners or open fires are great for giving a room a traditional feel whereas sleek and polished electric fires accentuate a modern and contemporary design. 


Fireplaces can come in many shapes, sizes and price points and you will be sure to find something that makes the room stand out from the rest. What is more, fireplaces can be incredibly efficient and an extra source of heat, perfect for the winter months and during a time of rising fuel prices.


Consider a bay window


Have you considered replacing your flat window with a bay window? It might not seem like the obvious choice but it can make a huge impact on both the interior and exterior of your home. Installing bay windows is an easier task than you might think and almost any home can benefit from the installation, so long as your home’s structure can support bay windows. 


Bay windows are available in a range of styles and can have a range of practical benefits also. They can add extra living space to a room and help create extra light. This in turn makes the room feel much bigger and brighter. Not to mention that they are an impressive and attractive feature on any home’s exterior. Internally be sure to make the most of your new space, consider adding built-in storage or a seating area and invest in high-quality bay window shutters to add that extra style and functionality to your windows.
