Easy Focal Wall Ideas To Make Your Room Pop – Part 1

 

Looking to make your room an attention grabber, but not sure how to make it happen?

Kick it up a notch and create an interest area in your room aka a focal point or a focal wall.

Now I’m not just talking about your usual trick of creating an accent wall by painting one wall a different color then the rest. Nope!

It’s time to get a bit more creative and make your room shine bright like a diamond. Here are some ideas on how to create a wow statement in your room.

Let’s get on with it…

Cozy It Up With a Fireplace

Dress it up to the nine with some pretty accessories, but don’t overdue it now. Less is always more. Don’t have a fireplace?  Then buy a fake one! You heard right. Check out this kickass fireplace.

Create a Floor to Ceiling Photo Wall Gallery

Gather your favorite pics or create a theme from something that brings up a nice memory for you. Maybe it’s a recent vacation, wedding, birth of a child, etc?  Don’t keep those pics hidden in a photo album. Display them on your walls and surround yourself with wonderful memories.  Stumped on how to create this masterpiece?  Check out my tutorial here.

Use a Floor Mirror

Make your room seem larger by adding a large mirror to your wall.  It doesn’t have to hang, simply lean it up against the wall and you’ve got an instant focal point. (Now you’ll for sure want to secure that sucker down if you have pets or little ones)
