Creating A Focal Point in the Kitchen

The focal point of any room is that spot where you eye wants to naturally rest and take it all in.  In a great room a fireplace would considered an obvious focal point.

What about a kitchen? How do you create a focal point in a kitchen?  A focal point in the kitchen can be something as simple as a beautiful view out a window or a stunning backsplash.  

Even a fantastic countertop can be consider as a place that draws your eye into the space.

Hoods are another obvious focal point, whether a metal finish hood, enhanced with cabinetry or a beautiful wood hood.  Wood Hoods can be simple or dramatic depending on the size and styling that is selected.  

Whatever the focal point, it should be dramatic and eye-catching, making a statement in the space.
