Learn 5 Stylish ways to Create a focal point with picture frames
A focal point point is the center of attention and around which everything else revolves in any space. It is the first thing or one of the first things that catches everyone’s eye when they walk into your room. This could vary from an accent wall, wall gallery, a beautiful piece of furniture, a large window with a nice view, a mirror, a centerpiece with a striking color or make, flower or plant, curtain or any design element with a bold and striking color, fabric, shape, size, pattern, just name them.
Note this: it is actually possible to have more than one focal point in a room; however, the just try it if your room is not large enough to accommodate two or more focal points . But in case you want to try it, you make one the primary focus and the other secondary.

Remember, wide walls go with large frames and vise versa. if your walls are wide, try placing just one huge/wide frame or even 2 on it and see the magic. Likewise, if your walls are the opposite, a few frames of smaller but varying sizes are best.
Now note that these frames don’t always have to be your face. they could be pictures of places you love, quotes, etc
they don’t have to be lined up in one boring pattern. There’s no particular formula to stick to; A good reason why you would need to vary the sizes.
Every room needs a focal point; it’s that simple!!
