Room Decorating

Having a focal point is important if you want to create a room that feels both comfortable and useable. Also, when selling your house, you’ll make the room more attractive to buyers.

Some rooms have natural focal points, such as a fireplace, architectural details or a picture window with a view. If the fireplace is your focal point you can add an accent painting or a mirror above the hearth.

If your room has none of these, you could gry placing a large piece of furniture such as an armoire or a tall bookcase along one wall or adding a table with your favorite ornaments or mementos on it.

The focal point doesn’t have to be on the wall, a large area rug placed under a coffee table can also work well.

All furniture in a room should be arranged around the focal point, helping draw your eyes to the right place.
