How to create a focal point in a newly decorated room

If you read any home decorating magazine or website, you will usually see advice telling you of the importance of creating a focal point when redecorating a room.

In short, this refers to a feature in the room which draws the eye as soon as a person walks into the room. This will help you to plan the rest of the room décor and layout around the focal point, to come up with a cohesive and aesthetically pleasing design. Focal points also help to give a room character and depth.

Examples of focal points include:

• Fireplaces
• TV sets and entertainment systems
• Large plants, sculptures and water features
• Wall art

Some of these more traditional focal points can be expensive to achieve, but there is a way you can create a focal point in a room far more cheaply and easily. Wall art stickers make ideal focal points, especially large designs which immediately catch the eye.

The best way to use wall stickers to create a focal point is to keep the rest of the décor neutral, so that the sticker stands out. Choose a large decorative design and place it in a prominent position in the room, ensuring there is plenty of space around it so the design can create maximum impact.
