Setting a Focal Point
While designing your room, its very important that you set a focal point, say a large media cabinet which houses most of your equipment such as your TV or Music System. But in colder places, a house is incomplete without a fireplace. Most houses practically look incomplete without a fireplace. Usually a well designed room has one or more focal points. Thus it is imperative to find out what the most eye catching feature for your room is going to be which makes the viewer to look further and draw his attention. This can even be a piece of furniture, artwork, or by simply painting a contrasting color in one area.
