If you are savvy and read magazines or look at Pinterest you can create an inviting living space, and with some simple tricks, you can create a home that looks like it’s been styled by an interior designer.
The best way to make a room feel more inviting and comfortable is finding a focal point to anchor the decor and create a natural flow. Otherwise the room or space can feel disjointed.
These inspirational ideas for using focal points in three popular living spaces can add comfort and beauty that makes you feel right at home.
As they say the kitchen is the heart of the home, so deserves extra attention to make it a welcoming space where you can enjoy spending time. Depending on your design, you’ll discover there are a number of ways to incorporate a focal point in a kitchen. It can be bold cabinetry, an island featuring a natural stone countertop or stand-out appliances that make a statement.
The wall space is also a smart place to draw visual attention. An accent wall is an option if you have the space, but the backsplash is another spot where you can make a big impact.
If you have a fireplace it is the main focal point of the living room or den. The main function of a fireplace is to provide warmth, however make your fireplace stand out while also adding an intimate touch by using brick or stone.
As an alternative, you can accent a fireplace with a bold wall treatment. Floor to ceiling brick or stone converts an average wall into an eye-catching focal point, giving a room a natural, yet striking, edge.
No fireplace, not to worry you can add an accent wall color and add display cabinetry with beautiful items that stand out.
It may be one of the smallest living spaces in a home, but the bathroom sees enough traffic that it’s worth making it a visually appealing place to be. Even with a diminutive footprint, the bathroom presents numerous options for a focal point, from an intricate wall material to vibrant lighting fixtures and everything in between. Given their relative size, the shower or tub may be a practical focal point; the vanity offers similar appeal. If you prefer a scaled but equally impactful approach, consider highlighting a smaller element, like a stunning vessel sink, or an unexpected element such as a brick or stone accent wall.
Create a look that’s uniquely you. Your home, and more specifically its style, should be a reflection of your personality. Consider a few ways to get started:
Set the mood. Give careful consideration to the overall mood and atmosphere you want to create for your home, both inside and out.
