A house with one theme can deliver a message that the owner of the house is just as collected and organized as the theme of the house. If there is a certain theme in the room, say, for example, classical or modern theme, the room will not look topsy turvy and will look elegant regardless of whatever theme you preferred.
In most cases, people decide to have no themes at all and just display furniture where they would fit which is a big no-no. Such mindset is a risk to the floor plan which will lead to interior disaster.

A focal point is the point of the house that will centralize everything. It is basically the center of attraction for a room. Knowing the focal point of one’s homes is knowing the balance of your house.
