How To Create the WOW! Factor

Having a beautiful home with all the bells and whistles can get costly very quickly. However, you can still create the Wow! factor in your home and create a statement without breaking the bank. Here are just a few of our favorite ways to incorporate stunning interior design features in your home to give it that Wow! factor:


1. VENT HOODS


Vent hoods are a practical feature in any kitchen, but they don't have to be a one-size-fits-all. They come in a variety of sizes, shapes, materials, styles and mounts.

2. FLOATING SHELVES


Want to add visual interest to a space? Floating shelves do just that while still providing ample storage.

Nothing says elegance like this! Whether you're doing a waterfall countertop or a funky design and backsplash, granite & marble rarely fail to disappoint.

Geometric, a pop of color, a gorgeous landscape or a subtle pattern - you decide! And bonus - most wallpaper these days is easily changeable so you can always keep it fresh!

8. TILE & BACKSPLASH


Whether it be on the floor, the backsplash or all the way up a wall, tile in its many sizes, shapes and colors can set the mood in both large spaces and small ones.

9. SINKS


Like so many other design elements, sinks come in different shapes, sizes and materials. Go bold with a glass front sink, farmhouse sink, sinks made from granite or a galley-style stainless sink.
