Adding A Focal Point Will Brighten Up A Room

By: Gambo Navi

Every normal looking room in your home can be developed into a pleasurable space to walk in to by simply adding a focal point. A focal point can lift and improve a space if it is carried out the proper way. Allow me to share a handful of pointers for people to read which I hope will help them on their way to making that focal point together with creating a house that they are going to be delighted to welcome friends, family and visitors in to, knowing they have done all of it by themselves.

A lovely, well decorated room can fail if it has no focal point. If you are blessed enough to have a fireplace, take advantage of it. Regardless of whether it is a mock fireplace and doesn’t work, give it significance and charm with fire irons and a pile of logs around the grate.

Outlook can often be an excellent focal point. If you have a beautiful country landscape or one of the rare skyline views of the city, organize your furniture so that the windows become the centre of eye attention. If you have neither fireplace or view, you will need to make your own personal focal point in the room.

Choose the most suitable and convenient wall, using it so that the rest of your room is pulled towards it. For instance, a lovely tapestry with antique wall lights at either side immediately draws eye interest. A sofa and a group of chairs arranged beneath it indicate, this is the central point. Exactly the same applies to one large painting, a group of paintings, a wall of books, a massive shelf arrangement filled with collector's items. A grand piano also makes a good focal point, so does a mirrored wall, a settee with end tables and two imposing lamps, or an extended, narrow chest arrangement containing textbooks and collectors items.

Arranging Furniture:
When grouping furniture make sure you can still view the grouping from any part of your room and obtain as much pleasure from it as you would a picture on the wall. This will be particularly important if you have more than one group arrangement. View it from all angles and opposite sides of your room to ensure that it looks neither muddled or disorderly.

1.Group chairs and sofa so that traffic goes around and not through the arrangement.
2.Keep chairs reasonably close together for easy conservation and to avoid shouting from across the room.
3. If you have lamps far away from walls, install floor outlets to prevent tripping over lamp chords.
4.Choose tables which are about the same height as sofa and chairs avoiding spills and upset lamps.
5.Strike the perfect balance by separating large pieces of furniture so the room doesn’t look too heavy at one end.
6.Remember light, slim furniture creates an optical illusion of room.

Every room needs a centre of gravity to drag it together. A hearth is the most normal one, but wall treatments, windows and furniture arrangements may be just about as eye catching.

When I say that I understand how hard it can be to carry out these tasks that which I have written about in this article. I have carried out these tips to many painting projects over the years but from the beginning when I first began in the trade there was a lot to learn. For my training I joined a company called Painter London. They taught me everything that I know.
