Focal Point Ideas for a Living Room, A well designed living room should have at least one focal point and that focal point should NOT be your television.
Focal points are items in a room that are unusual, interesting, eye catching, and/or unique. They are something that you would not find in every other home in your neighborhood. Here are a few ideas for focal points for a living room.
A fireplace is probably the most popular focal point in a living room. In order to make it a beautiful focal point, make sure that it is unique and different than a boring builder grade fireplace. You can paint your fireplace wall an accent color to highlight it. You can also replace the cheap tile around your fireplace with something more custom.
For an even more grand fireplace, you can tile above and below the fireplace, put wood paneling above the fireplace, or get a unique mantle.
An oversized bold piece of artwork can be a focal point. The artwork should grab the attention of people entering the room. A grand mirror can also be a focal point.
A unique piece of furniture can be a focal point. You can use an ornate antique armoire, an artistic modern chair, a grand piano, or a bold painted chest as a focal point.
