#4 Have One Focal Point
Every room needs a focal point,…something that when you walk into the space grabs your eye and attention before anything else. It can be a fireplace or a set of windows. It can be the striking design of a cabinet or a large unique piece of art. Ideally it will be tall, moving your eye toward the ceiling and back to the floor. Furnishings, especially seating groups should face or frame the focal point by arrangement and position. But what if a room has all of these things? A few rooms are lucky to have such character but to be successful, there should be one most important focal point, one that everything else from there flows about the environment.
