Before deciding on any home décor, it’s important for you to be able to determine what a good interior design looks like. Once you have an idea of the qualities to look out for, you are much better placed to make important decisions about how you want your design project to look like.
We take a look at 5 important qualities of great interior design.
It must be stylish
The whole point of interior design is to make you space stand out and the only way it can stand out is if it’s stylish. The kind of material you choose to use whether it’s the furnishing, ceiling, floor, art pieces and so on need to be dazzling. It doesn’t have to be expensive just well finished, arranged and accessorized to make it appear stylish.
It must have symmetry
Any design work has to have symmetry and this is especially true for interior design. It must follow the rules of ensuring that there is a focal point in every room which are accentuated by other elements without drawing attention from the focal point. Symmetry basically ensures that each space appears well balanced.
It must have harmony
Harmony forms a very important part of interior design. You may have different ideas you want to incorporate in your space but what enables you decide what you can and can’t use is harmony. The different color shades you use must blend well with the furniture, finishing, art, and so on. Even if you are trying to go out of the norm and try bolder colors, you must still ensure that harmony is attained.
It must be well coordinated
Approach interior design as you would approach your dressing. Whatever shirt, tie, pants and shoes you wear must essentially be well coordinated in order for you to pull off a good look. The same applies to interior design whereby there needs to be an element of uniformity in how you fill up your space. This will include uniformity in the design and color of your seats, draperies and so on. Everything needs to be well coordinated so that they complement each other.
It needs to be playful
Design needs to be fun, captivating and playful and this is especially important depending on the context in which it’s being done. For instance, you don’t have to paint a room with a color considered to be fun for it to appear vibrant and playful, all you need are the right accessories that have fun colors such as draperies, pillows and so on to add a feeling of playfulness to your space.
