Diagonal Lines in Home Design

Diagonal Lines1

Put a new slant on your décor


Most structural components of a house are organized on a horizontal and vertical grid, including floors, walls, ceilings, windows and doors. In addition, most furniture and home design elements are square or horizontal. Why not think creatively and introduce an item or two on the diagonal?

In the architecture of your home, diagonals can be planned in:

Diagonal lines add interest and energy.


– Angled top windows
– Angled mullions in windows
– The design of beams in the ceiling
– Angled walls, creating a non-rectangular room

 

 

 

Diagonal Lines In Patterns

Rugs and lamps provide an easy way to add diagonal lines.

For interior design planning, the most obvious diagonal options are patterns in carpeting, rugs, flooring, tile, upholstery, and window treatments, such as a zigzag pattern.

Some elements that, at first, seem to be horizontal or vertical can be used on a bias to create a diagonal look, e.g., you can lay wood flooring planks on a bias.

Also consider plaid or checked fabrics and wall coverings, or hanging mirrors on the diagonal instead of straight up and down.

Ideas for your furniture

Consider placing your chairs on an angle.


More ideas for thinking outside the box are:
– Add tables and chairs with slanted legs
– Select lamps that have an angled lamp shape or a tripod stand
– Place your sofa diagonally to a wall, instead of parallel or perpendicular
– Add two club chairs diagonal in relation to each other, instead of squared off, with an occasional table in between
– Build an angled kitchen island

Turn your home design on the bias. It will add a burst of energy to your home décor.
