Applied Design: Creating a Focal Point in the Kitchen

Every room can benefit from having a focal point.  It gives the eye a place to focus and relax, instead of bouncing around the room.  And, in a kitchen there are so many ways to create a focal point depending on your style.

If you want drama, pick a fun tile and make your back splash your focal point.

Or, just like our Room of the Week, make your kitchen island the focal point by lighting it with a dramatic over-sized fixture.

Place a bold piece of art on the wall you want to serve as your focal point.

Or, if you have a stunning view out your kitchen window then make sure to draw the eye outside by framing it beautifully.
