You may ask, what is it that makes some homes so beautiful and cut above the rest? Well, you may think the use of furniture, light, colours, etc. Yes, these are some obvious answers but there's a secret, only designers will be able to tell. The secret is the use of textures in a room. Textures can enhance the beauty of a space and take them to another level.
Now, everything has a texture, you may think. So, what are we really talking about here? The kind of textures we are referring to, are wood and fabrics. Their patterns and movement make the room come alive. These things make a room feel inviting and cosy. They look interesting to the eye and add a personality to the whole space. This makes absolute sense as to why texture is so big right now among interior designers.
But like everything in life, the cardinal rule is to strike the right balance. A lack of textured elements can make a space look cold. However, it is quite subjective; to one person a space full of texture could look pleasing, the same space might look disturbing to another person. The key is to find a balance you are comfortable with or the kind of textures that suit your tastes.
What we've done is put together a mix of ideas for you to choose from. See what you like and then decorate. Have fun with textures.
The easiest and the most fun way of incorporating textures are through textiles. Fun bed sheets, covers, sofa fabrics, rugs, throws all add to the fun. They can add colour to a plain room, design to a simple space.
Right from woollen rugs to ethnic design ones; rugs add instant warmth to any room. They set a tone for a space and work the texture up. Go black and white, stripes, dots, motifs, prints, go crazy with the patterns.
Plants are the original textures. They instantly purify the air and the mood of a space. They add colour without being too jarring. From living rooms to office spaces to bathrooms, plants add their own texture which is very hard for the eye to miss.
We hope you found these tips helpful. Now, start adding your own mix of textures to have a spectacular experience with design.
