In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some examples of statement pieces you might consider for your home remodel. Statement pieces, which stand out and draw eyes to certain areas of a given home or room, can include everything from large items like fireplaces or sofas to others like light fixtures and more.

At Pine Tree Construction, we're proud to offer a huge range of home remodeling services to our clients, including statement pieces they may desire for any room or space in the home. While part one of our series went over possible statement piece ideas you might be thinking about, today's part two will dig into some general tips we offer on the selection process.

Scale is Important

While you may have fallen in love with a given statement piece, it's important to ensure it will fit in the space where you intend to use it, as well as within your budget. Smaller-scaled artwork, for instance, won't look right in a huge room, while a large piece of artwork may not fit into any area you have in mind.

Also consider your existing color palette and how it might work with or clash against the statement piece you're looking at. If the statement piece is significantly different from items like your sofa and wall art, it can be difficult to incorporate it into the room's overall aesthetic.

Combine Patterns and Textures

In many cases, a little contrasting between your various statement pieces can help to enhance their visual allure. On the other hand, if you have too many contrasting textures and patterns within a given room, it can be difficult for homeowners to find a single focal point.

One way to solve this issue is by choosing complementary colors between different statement pieces (like using gray artwork with your dark gray sofa) or by coordinating varying patterns or textures (such as pairing a light-patterned sofa with dark, solid artwork on canvas).

Pick Pieces With Intent

You're the one who will spend the most time in this space, and you want to find statement pieces that fit with your personal style and your needs. If you intend to put a statement piece over the sofa, for example, do you want it to draw attention away from the television or other living room features?

Do you have young children who may be running around in this area of the house? If so, is there anything about a given statement piece that could cause a safety hazard? Is the statement piece's scale large enough to allow for kids to move around it safely, but small enough that young children won't be able to reach its highest shelves or storage areas?

As you search for interesting statement pieces, do your best to focus on what draw you toward them and how they might look in your home.
