Well-designed rooms often have a focal point — the first thing that your eye sees when you input. Choosing the right thing to emphasize sets the mood and tone for a space. When it’s an architectural feature, a feel, a color or a light fixture, then putting the spotlight on these elements will help make a visually intriguing and pleasing interior. However, what’s the best way to get this done? Below are some ways to make a focal point that doesn’t dominate or compete with different objects in a space.

Brick attribute. A central component, similar to this fireplace, can help you place your furniture in a room. Notice how the furniture in this area revolves round the fireplace. The rock surround also sets the colour tone for the couch, chairs and curtains.

Getting the size of the architectural element in the area is essential. If it’s too big, it can look and feel uncomfortable. If it’s too small, your furniture will be the focal point, taking away from the primary feature.

Art. This painting is positioned perfectly — centered between the 2 doors, above the console to make an immediate focal point that allows the remainder of the space to shine.

The size and tone of your art are significant. Choose a painting with the proper scale for your area, in tones that stand out and draw the eye in but do not clash with the rest of the room. 1 big, daring piece of art looks fantastic against a neutral wall and furniture. A set of prints are able to make an impact too, whether they’re framed identically or have an eclectic mix of frames.

Texture. Add feel to make a focus in a monochromatic color scheme, providing your space character and depth. Smooth, shiny objects will give away a trendy vibe, while soft, raised textures include more heat. This kitchen’s neutral, minimalist palette instantly draws the eye to the feel and colour of the counter-to-ceiling backsplash. The tile finish glistens against the stainless steel appliances.

Pattern. Pattern may be striking focus. If a room is lacking in architectural attributes, use a more permanent, patterned finish — like tile or stone — as a daring statement.

The organic, flowing design and subtle colour of the granite feature wall conveys this powder room without the demand for additional decorative elements. Clever backlighting highlights the rock and highlights the floating vanity top.

Color. Narrow hallways can sense dull, but painting the doors a gutsy colour and incorporating texture with studs generated multiple focal points in this.

Pay attention to how you can use colour on your home’s architectural elements to draw attention to or away from specific parts of your house. Notice how emphasizing the skirting in this hallway with bright turquoise leads the eye from door to door.

One daring thing, like a colorful striped rug, instantly sets a lively mood. This look works particularly well in modern rooms with little or no architectural detailing.
