A lot of elements are at play in the interior design of your home. Think of it as an orchestra where each tiny element; every minutia comes together to form something that is far larger than the sum of its parts. What we would call the crescendo in an orchestra would translate to the focal point in the world of interior design. The metaphor may not be ideal, but you get the idea that they are the elements of interior design which are the loudest and tend to catch your immediate attention.
Many homeowners make the design mistake of overlooking focal points in their interiors. As a result, the room is a lot less dynamic and loses some much-needed character and personality that a properly developed and accentuated focal point could have offered. So, knowing about them, how they work, and where to find them in different rooms can help you develop your interior design into something more personal and attractive to you and your household.
