How to put furniture in the spotlight

Each space has a piece of furniture that is essential. From the comfortable sofa in the living room, where the family gathers to watch movies, to the dining table to share some delicious moments. These key pieces of furniture clearly fulfill a function above all else, but this does not mean that they have to disappear among all the others, in fact, they should be in the spotlight.

Here we leave you some tips to be able to highlight any piece of furniture using RoomBox and get that piece of furniture in the spotlight.

Play with the space at hand

1 ) When furnishing a room, avoid placing them flat against the wall. For example, in a dining room we can position the furniture in larger spaces to bring family and friends to the center of the room. In this way the table and chairs facilitate conversation.

Likewise, the furniture should be oriented around a main point. In the living room, this can be the television or a large coffee table. Another example could be in the dining room, the focal point could be a lighting element such as a lamp.

Objects with history

2) Continuing with the previous example, the lighting spotlights in the dining room, like a spectacular lamp chandelier, guaranteed to be the center of attention at any dinner party. This striking design not only conveys a story, but captures our attention and sparks our interest.

3) The Mirrors They can brighten and expand seemingly any tiny or gloomy area, but they can also be a statement piece in themselves. Not only large mirrors look luxurious. A gorgeous small mirror also adds a sense of grandeur to a dressing room.

More than a piece of furniture

4) A symbolic piece can actually be a combination of several ideas that are constantly repeated. A coffee table in a living room is a focal point that can make the area more welcoming.

If your desired table is rather small, you can add a similar-looking rug to make it look larger and take center stage. Simple but effective.

5) Lighting is an element of interior design little appreciated but that you can use to highlight a work of art or give life to a piece of furniture. Adjustable lighting can allow you to quickly change the atmosphere on a shelf or in a specific seating area, by simply changing the intensity we can create a bright and open or dim and intimate environment.

This can be achieved by strategically placing and stacking different light sources, such as recessed lights, task lights, and spotlights.

A touch of color

6) Color can also help us establish a focal point and it doesn't have to be everywhere. A wall painted in a bright shade can help capture attention.

That wall can make the furniture in front of you stand out even more, showing that it's not just the furniture that stands out.

As we have seen, there are different tricks to put a piece of furniture in the spotlight. Some are more intuitive while others may seem risky to us. It is worth doing multiple tests in a virtual environment such as RoomBox before putting any advice into practice, since your space and your needs are unique, and so is your furniture.
