(8) Create a Focal Point

One great way to capture a room’s essence is by creating a focal point that everything revolves around. A focal point is the center of attention, it draws eyes to itself. Your focal point can be a unique rug, an amazing piece of artwork, a fireplace, or a window with a view. But refrain from creating too many focal points. A room with too many focal points looks messy and small. Create a focal point that’s intriguing and expands the space. It will detract attention from your small space.
