A focal point should be something interesting to look at. So how do you find or create one for your room?
Your room will be more inviting if it has a focal point. Sometimes it could already be created in something architectural. But if it's not built into the room then you need to create it.
Look around your room. If you have a fireplace that could be your focal point. You can use the mantel to draw the eye even more. If you don't have a fireplace or another large feature you can create a focal point. Remember the focal point should be the first thing you see when you walk into the room.
You can use artwork to create a focal point. You can also use creative lighting or paint to create or enhance a focal point. The color of the wall can draw your eye in. Using lighting can enhance that feature and make it stronger. Arrange your furniture to draw attention to your focal point. Keep in mind the flow of the room.
If you are using artwork on a wall the featured photograph in a large size will create a beautiful focal point. The colors will go will in a room with fall colors so it is perfect for the season!
