How Interior Focal Points Improve The Flow Of Your Home

paradise valley home interior focal pointsA picture window framing a view of Camelback Mountain is a pristine visage to enjoy from your kitchen, and that kind of surrounding can mean a better resale value to the next buyer. But since its not possible that all buyers can buy a house in Paradise Valley with such a location, still no need to worry if you can’t see the mountains from your La-Z-Boy, you can enhance the view from your home with interior focal points and add enjoyment for yourself and more interest for future buyers.

What’s the Focus?

Each room in your home should have a focal point, and when the best thing the room has to offer is the view outside, you need to play it up. One option is to move your furniture for optimal viewing. Don’t put the back of the couch against a fantastic view window; instead, build a seating area that attracts visitors to sit and stay awhile.

Draw in the Eyes

Paint is an excellent way to draw people toward the beautiful view. If you’re lucky enough to have a large window that takes up most of the viewing wall, try using a paint color on that wall that’s a shade different from the rest of the room. Perhaps it’s two colors in the same family or two complementary colors, but that partnership will highlight the window in question. If you have a smaller window, try adding a colorful design or even a bit of a mural to the wall to frame it and make it draw attention.

Natural Framing

Windows have panes that act as natural frames to the view. You can either paint those to accent the scenery, or you can add a fantastic window treatment. Look at the view, size of the window, and shape of the window to guide your choice of drapery. Some options to consider are valances, side panels, or long, floor-skimming drapes.

Reflect the Positive

Mirrors are often used to add depth to a room or make it brighter. When the view is the center of attention in a room, maximize it by placing a mirror to reflect it. You’ll see that view from numerous angles, and the mirror will also make the room look bigger. When the sun’s shining, the light will add a lot of natural brightness to the room as well.

No View for You

Not all rooms can have a $1 million, picture-perfect scene out the window. For rooms that face another house or something unsightly, try cellular shades, which are thin enough to let in abundant light yet completely block the view from the window. Another window-covering option is one that pulls up instead of down. That way, you can block your neighbor while still being able to see the mountains beyond.

If you’re ready to make a big change to the window, make it magnificent with stained glass. You can either purchase a piece to hang directly on the window, or if you’re crafty, you can paint right on the glass and create your own masterpiece. A decorative window film also adds interest to the window itself. If the view is something you never want to see, consider installing glass blocks in lieu of traditional glass.

An easy fix for a poor view is putting household décor in front of the window. Plants, an armoire, or a hanging basket can block out a window that doesn’t serve your needs.
