Artificial Focal Points  

How to Create Them

Written by Jill Gargus, CID

Artificial focal points offer a place to ground the eyes when first entering a room. They are very important also in creating wow factor and making your MLS pictures stand out.

The photo above shows an example of this, we used a mirror and symmetrical branches to create a focal point in the dining area.

This can also be done with art, buffet table with art and decor on it, a tree and art, a bench…. many things can direct the eye and ground the room.

Every room should have a focal point so if it’s not built in like a fireplace, then create your own!

Creating Storage

Creating decent storage in your home has more to do with removing items, than it does with packing them up nicely.

So fill up those suitcases, totes and duffel bags and haul it out. Right out preferably.

Removing 50% or more of the goods in your home will create more storage space visually and automatically. It will also allow for you to finally add that set of shelves you always wanted and that for sure a buyer would love.

Consider the best use of space under stairs or in garages and add some shelving where it is most beneficial. You can create storage also in closets across the top shelf, by adding another one and making it do double duty.

Adding hooks in laundry or boot rooms, and making the dead spaces under steps or benches in the garage serve a purpose will also make your home appealing.

Look in magazines for ideas and use your budget as best as you can to create storage that is always a premium for buyers.
