Below are some examples of room anchors in our home.
In the dining room, the corner cupboard grounds the room.
In most kitchens the stove with hood are the visual weight. Is this true in my kitchen? What about the large Subzero refrigerator? Because of the hood over the range does not continue to the ceiling, it is a bit morphed by the frig. I'd vote for the frig as the anchor in this room.
In our sunroom, the bird prints which fill the main wall act as the focal point. Individually, they aren't large or dark, but when hung as a set of six, they definitely command the room.
Our living room is an interesting example of the "anchor" design principle with several heavy pieces of furniture and a fireplace. I wonder what you would say is the weight? Look at the room from a couple of angles, before you vote.
The library, too, has more than one large, dark element, but the bookcase/fireplace wall wins hands down as the anchor, because the other bookcase has no where near the heft.
Now, let's inspect the bedrooms. Our main floor master bedroom has a tall piece of furniture opposite the bed. However, the volume of the bed makes it the anchor, rather than the armoir.
The same is true for the uptstairs bedrooms.
