Buildings that are located in picturesque area can benefit upon the same by having large and oversized windows.

5. Alluring Shades

“Using colour is perhaps the easiest way to create a focal point in a room because the eye is naturally drawn to the brightest or darkest colours in a space. To create a colourful focal point, keep the general colour scheme of the room in a neutral palette. Use soft brown or gray on the walls, sofa and rugs. Use a bold pop of colour like tangerine or turquoise on your focal point, whether it is a chair, wall or piece of art. Tie the colour into the rest of the room by using small accents of your chosen colour in throw pillows or small accessories in the room.” Source: HomeGuides

Painting a unique colour to the door with a little bit of texture can create a stunning and an eye catching effect in interior design.

How to choose a Focal Point for House Plan Design?

  1. Determine the 'prime' feature as a focal point like- a fireplace, a picture window, or a built-in bookcase.
  2. If you fail to have a distinguishing architectural feature, then choose from among the largest furniture pieces as the central theme.
  3. A focal point should be something interesting, colourful, texturally and visually appealing.

“Use light where possible to create a focal point. Our eyes are drawn to the natural light and movement created by a view - be it a cityscape or a stunning landscape - so a window which is an unusual shape or has an interesting aspect is a designers dream. Artificial lighting in the form of chandeliers or suspension lights are very popular and on trend, and there are some outstanding pieces available to suit everyone's budget.” Source: Idai

  1. Artwork, floral arrangements, paint colour, etc, could be some other options.
  2. As focal point is the 'first thing' one notices on entering a room, it will be great to build your furniture arrangement around it.
  3. If you are blessed with a beautiful outside view, orient the furniture inside and out-of-doors to take advantage of window areas.
