The living room is common space in a home that plays many roles, and serves several functions. Some may have a formal living room dedicated to special occasions, and a family room that is most commonly used for more casual purposes like relaxing after long days; while others may have only one living room that serves both functions.

Is there still something missing for your living room? It might be possible that your space is lacking a focal point, flow, or visual interest. The key to finding balance is with a combination of principles and elements of interior design.  Doing so will help you create the perfect look for your living room.


A focal point is where the eye is automatically drawn to when entering into the living room so it really should impress the viewer by having that "wow factor." This scene will set the tone for the space and define the style and feel that the room intended to create.

If your space is lacking a clear focal point such as a fireplace, consider creating one by adding a sizable piece of art over a sofa, or a larger scale piece of furniture such as a bookshelf. We've picked out some great wall art finds for you below!


The modern living room featured in this article is both neutral and minimal; so consider layering your space with textures such as, baskets, blankets, throw pillows, and amazing rugs to give your living room that much needed visual interest. Some additional considerations for finding balance with visual interest are elements such as accent furniture, candle sticks, and artwork.
