Every normal looking room in your home can become a pleasurable space to walk into by simply adding a focal point. A focal point can lift and improve a space if it is done in the correct way. Here are a few ideas for people to read which I hope may help them on their way to creating that focal point together with creating a house they are going to be delighted to welcome friends, family and visitors in to, knowing they have done all of it by themselves.

A stunning, well decorated room can fail if there is no focal point. If you are blessed enough to possess a hearth, take advantage of it. Even when it may be a mock fireplace and does not work, give it significance and character with fire irons and a pile of wood in the grate.

Outlook can often be a good focal point. If you have a gorgeous country panorama or one of the rare skyline views of the city, position your furniture so that the windows become the centre of eye attention. If you have neither fireplace or view, you will have to make your own focal point in the room.

Choose the best suited and well-situated wall, using it so the rest of your room is pulled towards it. For example, a lovely tapestry with antique wall lights at each side immediately draws eye interest. A sofa and a group of chairs arranged beneath it indicate, this is the central point. The same applies to 1 large painting, a group of paintings, a wall of books, a massive shelf arrangement full of collector's items. A grand piano also makes a good focal point, so does a mirrored wall, a sofa with end tables and two imposing lamps, or a long, narrow chest arrangement containing books and collectors items.

Arranging Furniture:

When grouping furniture ensure that you are able to view the grouping from any part of the room and obtain as much pleasure from it as you would a picture on your wall. This will be particularly important if you have in excess of one group arrangement. View it from all angles and opposite sides of the room to ensure that it looks neither muddled or disorderly.

1.Group chairs and sofa with the intention that traffic goes around and not through the arrangement.

2.Keep chairs reasonably close together for easy conservation and to avoid shouting from across the room.

  1. If you have lamps away from walls, install floor outlets to prevent tripping over lamp chords.

4.Select tables which are about the same height as sofa and chairs avoiding spills and upset lamps.

5.Strike the perfect balance by separating large pieces of furniture so the room will not look too heavy at one end.

6.Bear in mind that light, slim furniture creates an optical illusion of room.

Every room needs a centre of gravity to pull it together. A fireplace is the most normal one, but wall treatments, windows and furniture arrangements may be just about as eye catching.
