Transform Your Home With Texture

Adding Texture1

Adding Texture2The look of your interior design is mostly about the sense of sight, maximizing the visual beauty of your home. But adding texture to the equation brings in the sense of touch.
Having a variety of textures in a room adds interest and emotion, provides balance, and may enhance your physical comfort for sitting and lounging.
A room without much texture can be quietly beautiful, communicating sleekness and calm, but it can also become a bit monotonous.

Texture adds a tactile sense to your interior design and wakes up the room. Soft and silky finishes can relax your senses, while rougher textures will energize you. Adding Texture3

Textures Are A Nice Touch in Interior Design

29 Jun

Textures add the sense of touch to your decorating plans.

From rough to smooth, nubby to silky, textures invoke an emotional feeling.

Textures are a nice touch in an interior design scheme. They can caress your skin or stimulate the senses with a bit ofTextures2 roughness. Whether the textures you add are soft or hard, dense or airy, pliable or firm, they will add interest and engagement to your décor.

Consider these elements to add texture to your home:

  • In fabrics – velvet, chenille, linen, wool and tweed

  • In furniture – rattan, wicker and recycled wood

  • In flooring – grained wood, textured tile, contoured rugs and shag carpeting

  • In window fashions – smooth shutters and textured woven wood shades

  • In painted walls – faux finishes such as Venetian plaster, ragging, sponging and marbleizing

Texture is not just about how a home design element feels; texture also has a look. If you use a neutral color palette, Textures1texture is especially important. It helps you avoid a sterile or cold feeling.

Think faux fur, fabrics with ridges, textured paint treatments, tongue and groove ceilings, ceiling medallions, rough stone fireplace facades, cork and grass wall coverings, uneven hand-made terra cotta tiles, even burlap in the right setting!

Smooth, soft fabrics tend to be associated with traditional or elegant rooms, while modern rooms have rougher texture, but you can think outside the box on these stereotypes. Layering Textures3textures is a good strategy, such as soft rugs atop hard surface flooring or smooth throw pillows atop a rough upholstery fabric on chairs and sofas.

Add a tactile sense to your interior decorating plan by focusing on textures with your home element selections.
