Here’s a simple and effective way to keep every room inside your home beautiful and eye-catching–creating a focal point. Basically, the focal point refers to a design principle that allows you to tie each area together by drawing the eyes to a specific (and usually largest) element in the room. DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of SE Florida, the trusted kitchen and bathroom remodel company in the area, shares a few inspired focal point ideas here.
But First, Are Focal Points Actually Necessary?
Absolutely! Identifying the focal point in a room will influence how the furniture is arranged in that area. It also helps create the room’s overall vibe. Not only that–the focal point will highlight the best features inside that space, allowing for a good first impression from guests.
- Choose a wall to spotlight in the foyer. You can then decorate that wall with something that best represents you and your family. This can range from a large, elaborately designed mirror to abstract wall décor. If you want something more personal, you can decorate that wall with family vacation photos or framed artwork made by your kids to give the focal point a warmer and friendlier vibe.
- Focus on the backsplash. Picking a focal point in the kitchen is more interesting because much of its design will be influenced by your choice of countertops or kitchen cabinets. But to ground the space with a focal point, you should opt for the backsplash. This particular element can highlight the functionality and simple elegance of the room, so make sure to pick its material carefully. Tiles with a vibrant and creative pattern is one fine example; long picture windows are another.
- Make an accent wall. Nothing says focal point like an accent wall, which involves painting one wall a vivid and different color, or making it a few shades darker or lighter than the others. You can even forgo the paint job and put up wallpaper with a distinctive pattern. With an accent wall, you can create a lovely focal point, while adding a designer touch to the room.
