The living room feels incomplete without a focal point. It’s the “thing” that draws you in and stands out as the design element in the space. Create a well-balanced living room with a beautiful focal point by incorporating one of these design suggestions into your living room makeover.
- A fireplace is a natural focal point for your living room. If you’re fortunate enough to have a fireplace already, but it lacks a modern touch, update it with ceramic tiles, shiplap, or a new mantle.
- A wall of built-in shelves will never go out of style and is a great way to detract from your television as the focal point of a wall. On your open shelving, mix two-thirds books with one-third decor. Also, leave some breathing space to make an object more appealing – so resist the urge to fill every square inch with decorations and books.
- Create a focal point using wallpaper. A bold wallpaper print can add focus to a room that lacks it. Selecting a beautiful print centered on one wall will grab all of the attention.
- A gallery wall featuring family photos, a mirror, or a large piece of art makes an eye-catching focal point. Choose one or two larger prints that draw in the eye and fill in the gaps with smaller prints.
