WE all love living in beautiful homes no matter how big or small, but if you do not have good ideas when it comes to decorating your home- then the house will just be as good as an empty shell.
Decorating a home has always been an uphill task; for some people it might be the money to buy all you need in your décor, but for other is in deciding on how to decorate and putting the whole idea into practice.
Did you know that sometimes you do not have to look for many things to make your home attractive? One of the ways is to look around your room to determine the best feature to be your focal point and work out with that.
This is how you can get down getting a focal point in a room, whether in the living, dining or even bedroom.
Every room has its features. Looking around a particular room will give you an idea and determine its best features and make it a focal point. It may be a fireplace in the living room, a window in your bedroom, or a built-in bookcase in your library.
If your room has no distinguishing architectural features, you can identify the largest and maybe even unique furniture pieces, that you have and make them your focal point.
When choosing a focal point, take a note that it should be something interesting to look at, something colorful or texturally and visually appealing. Something that will attract attention and make your house look unique.
Never underestimate the power of little things like artwork, pictures, floral arrangements, paint color, or shelving can do to the entire décor of your room. Creating a focal point, out of these can be the clincher in your home décor.
Whatever it is that you want to add to your décor, you can build or arrange it around your focal point. For example if it is the fire place, you can arrange one big artwork above it, to give it the focal attraction.
Some people create a focal point by painting one wall in a room in a different color from the rest of the walls and accessorizing with a wall arrangement, artwork, or display shelves. Using a wall as a focal point by painting a contrasting colour is usually very striking and will give you the needed results.
You can also decide to use lighting to enhance your focal point. For example, you can use a picture light, track light, or wall fixture on a painting or wall display to enhance the focal point of your room.
If you have a mantle or shelf in a room and want to use it as the focal point, then use plants and accessories to decorate them. Arranging small pots of flowers neatly will create the needed attraction.
A focal point should be something interesting to look at, something colorful or texturally and visually appealing and will enable you keep your home always fresh looking trendy and elegant.
Remember the focal point is the first thing people see when entering a room.
