Finding and Enhancing Your Room's Focal Point

Finding & Enhancing the Focal Point

Find the focal point in your room and enhance it. Why is this important? Because this is where the eye will naturally go, so you can’t ignore it and its fun to enhance it.

A room’s focal point is probably the first thing you notice, the largest feature of the room or the most dramatic item in the room. It can be an architectural item, an antique piece of furniture, a work of art, or a window looking onto a beautiful outdoor scene. Arrange and orient the rest of the furniture and items in the room to enhance and increase interest in the focal point. Use lighting, window treatments, accessories, and paint color to further highlight and compliment your room’s center of attention. While the focal point is the room’s center of attention, you will become the center of admiration.
