The focal point in any room is important as it is the main feature that will attract the eyes as soon as someone enters the room. In most rooms it is often the main piece of furniture that instantly catches the eye, such as the bed in a bedroom. However, when it comes to a room like a living room, you have a lot more freedom to come up with a unique focal point. It doesn’t always have to be your TV!

Ready to create an amazing focal point for your living room? Here are some of the best ideas that can really add the wow factor.

A Fireplace
Fireplaces are great focal points and if you already have one built into your main living room wall, then you might not have to do much other than smarten it up. If it is the original feature, it might be full of character and could really help to add some personality to your room. Don’t worry if you don’t already have a fireplace in your room. There are now lots of stores that sell them and will be able to install them for you.


Or if you want to do something easy you can look into getting one of these PlugIn Fireplace Furniture Pieces.

A Gallery Wall
One really popular focal point idea that many interior designers add in their own homes is a gallery wall. In order to create this, you just need to cover the main wall in the room with framed photos, artworks, and prints. The whole idea is to create a wall that works as a gallery and will display your favorite type of art.

You can find some nice Frame Sets like these on amazon.

A Piece Of Vintage Furniture
There are now lots of furniture stores, such as Plum Goose, that feature some great vintage-style brands, like Four Hands. These brands specialize in reclaimed furniture and great vintage pieces that will really add some charm and style to your living room. It’s a good idea to add a statement piece of vintage furniture that will stand out from everything else in the room.




I really like the balance of this wall gallery by @luxdecor_montreal. But the feature that made me stop and look was the combination of different color frames..wood, black, and gold all grouped together harmoniously to create a powerful focal point. Would you like to do this on your wall? Do you like the mix of frames? Home decor today incorporates all of the things we love, the treasures we have collected over time that have meaning and memories.. so keep that art or print in the original frame and hang it with all the others you have...just like this wall! Fabulous! #framedart #oceanpainting #sevavailable #originalart #vintage #finditstyleit #smmakelifebeautiful #artistofinstagram #goldframe #instaart #photooftheday #vintageprint #artwork #artcollector #interiordesigner #diyhomedecor #myhousebeautiful #sevenstreetmarket #focalpoint #estatesalefinds #treasure #gallerywall #treasurehunt #finds #thrifting

Use Original Features
If you have moved into a period property then you might notice that there are some original features in the living room. One of these could be a fireplace, like I’ve already mentioned, but you might get lucky and have a living room that has the property’s original beams on display. If so, you might want to paint these or restore them to their original state. Beams are a fantastic stand-out feature and can retain the home’s original style.

Strip The Wall
If you want to really mix things up in your living room, you might want to strip the main wall to expose the brickwork. Exposed brickwork is extremely fashionable right now, and will work in a variety of interior design styles and trends. It is a certainly striking look and will definitely attract everyone’s attention!

As you can see, there are lots of different aspects of decor and your living room that can be turned into a fascinating focal point. Which one do you think that you will go with?
