How to Create the Wow Factor in Your Interior Design

While it's always interesting to see someone else's interior design, there is always that rare space that makes you go wow! So what is it that initiates that involuntary response? What is the interior design wow factor?

This article will look at some of the ways professional and experienced DIY interior designers ensure that people say wow with their home or commercial interior design. Read on to find out more.

Make a statement

One way to get people stating wow is to ensure your space has a statement piece that attracts immediate attention. Some examples of ways you can create a striking statement include:

  • A bold feature wall
  • A wall-to-ceiling feature design
  • A wall mural
  • A central piece of feature art
  • A large sculpture on the far wall from the door
  • A feature plant
  • Statement furniture

If you have a good view from a window, make that a statement, like installing a vintage or refuge timber window or french doors to frame the outside scenery.

It's art!

While a piece of feature art can be dazzling, turning your room into a gallery can be just as eye-popping. This can be achieved by carefully selecting your art placement or going to the other extreme and filling a room with art floor to ceiling.

Textiles for miles

Textiles can create depth and contrast in a room and act as a subtle detail rather than a feature. The trick with fabrics is to use them to offset your main theme. For example, if you have sleek, minimalist features in a room, use a busily patterned rug or throw blanket to offset the simplicity.

If you select a busy patterned wallpaper, consider a plain coloured textile for features or curtains to highlight your chosen patterns.

Purpose and intent

Being purposeful in your design can be the difference between "wow" and "meh". Just because something looks nice doesn't mean it will add to your interior aesthetic.

Select patterns, colours and features in a room with meaning and intent. Even if your theme is dense, like an oddities shop or library, go all in. Don't just throw it together—commit to your design and throw yourself into it; it's all in detail.

Colour sets the tone

Speak to any experienced interior designer, and they will likely tell you the same thing; people aren't good with colours. There are two ways to go about colour; choose a colour and match it with a theme, or vice-versa.

The right colour scheme will often come naturally if you know your theme and are clear on a design. However, if you are making things up as you go, you should do a little more research before deciding or considering speaking to a paint or colour specialist.
