According to the norms of interior design, every room should have a focal point. It can be anything, and when there is none present in the room, create one. It can be a furniture piece, some accent, a fireplace, or a window. To help you do so, here are a couple of ideas that can inspire you.
Position certainly plays a major role than you might just think. But, this does not mean, you have to place it in the center except the ones meant to be in the center like a coffee table, a chandelier, etc. Still, you can consider any place in your room, for instance, creating the wall behind your bed as the focal point by making use of some designer headboard or getting some wall accents.
Yes, rugs can make amazing focal points. Rugs with some patterns and print look amazing, especially if they are uncovered. If the rug is in bold and vibrant hues, ensure that the rest of the room decor is a bit subtle to balance out and let the rug get all the attention. They will be nice focal points of your room and add texture and warmth too.
In smaller home areas like kitchens and bathrooms, if creating a focal point is difficult for you, then worry not. For instance, in a bathroom, you can make use of a bathtub, or even a shower as the focal point. Decorate around it, like using a curtain in the shower area, placing scented candles around the bathtub, and so on. This will also add to the ambiance.
Unusual shapes are quirky and can make amazing focal points. It can be some furniture and definitely some unique mirrors. Get mirrors in unusual shape and place them opposite to your window. It will make any place look brighter and bigger while serving as the focal center of that room.
