How To Create A Focal Point In Your Interior

Modern day homes can often appear disjointed and cluttered due to the unavoidable items that grace our homes such as media devices, accessories, heaters and general bits and bobs. With the need for extra storage space and display units, our home interiors have lost that traditional sense of organisation that created a centralised and stylish space in which to relax.

The focal point of your interior should be the first thing that draws your eye as you enter a room, it can be created using colour, furniture, accessories or a simple change of layout and can transform even the most blank of canvases into a sleek and sophisticated interior design.


Wall Art

Wall art and Wallpaper are a great way of creating a focal point in a neutral interior space and work particularly well in plain interiors that lack a chimney breast or natural focal point. Opt for a bold patterned wallpaper with colour and depth or for a more subtle yet still eye-catching finish opt for neutral palettes with a hint of metallic pattern or finish. Wall art can be used to draw the eye to a plain painted wall or can seamlessly highlight a sofa or sideboard area. Large and contemporary images work great in minimal homes whilst traditional portraits and landscapes can also create a soft and refined focal point in more classic interior styles.



The fireplace has long been used as the focal point in the living room area as it provides a centralised and visually appealing area that can dictate the layout and seating arrangements of a room. A large mantelpiece creates an eye-catching centre piece that can be further emphasised using a vase, ornaments of photo frames for added detail and visual effect. Modern electric fires can work equally well, with wall mounted designs being used to compliment a wallpapered or painted chimney breast wall. This creates a zoned area of detail and colour that provides functional practicality as well as elegant interior style.




Lighting is a fabulous way of creating a centrepiece within your chosen room and is the ideal way of creating a focal point in smaller or more awkward interior spaces. A large, single drop light works extremely well in creating a central area of detail and light that can be used to draw attention to an item below, such as a dining table, bed or seating area. Large French or Italian chandeliers look great in classic or contemporary home interiors whilst modern sculptural designs will add a visual artwork that makes a great alternative to a ornament or picture. Opt for bold coloured styles or elegant crystal designs to co-ordinate your lighting choice to your interior style and palette.



They may not be the most beautiful items in the world but our TVs have become to social point of our home with many an evening spent catching up on our favourites TV series and films. Creating a more visually delightful setting for these often ugly devices can be tricky, but with all eyes and furniture drawn towards your TV it becomes a necessary focal point that requires a balance of style and elegance. Opt for a grand and eye-catching TV cabinet that will provide a complimentary focal point but will also hide a multitude of wires and clutter. Alternatively you can create a wall mounted focal point by incorporating your TV as a piece of wall art on a centralised wall or chimney breast.



Furniture can create a natural focal point in an interior depending on its size, colour and impact on its internal space. Sideboards, console tables and display cabinets create a visual focal point that once again will draw the eye to a particular wall or chimney breast and can be adorned with complimentary items that add to the overall visual finish. Focal points do not have to be against a wall however, a grand and eye-catching dining table, coffee table or bed can draw the eye to the centre of the room with your seating, decor and smaller items orbiting the centrepiece of your interior space.
