Do you ever feel that you have spent so much time putting your interior together and its almost there but something is missing? Texture is what you are missing! It is an important element in design that can bring a room together.
What do we mean by texture? Its basically adding “feeling” to your space, think soft squishy carpets, raw character filled wooden furniture or sinking into a velvet chair.
Introducing textures to your interior adds a sensory element that enriches your space.
An easy way to add texture is with your flooring. Beautiful wooden floors, porcelain tiles or cement screeds all contribute to the overall personality of a room. If your budget doesn’t stretch to be redoing your floors, then opt for a textured rug. A thick jute rug will suit almost any interior and add a beautiful natural element to your space.
Furniture texture is also important. Woven wicker or raw wood brings warmth to a room while a metallic element adds a reflective texture that exudes opulence.
Accessories are also an easy but affordable way to add texture to your interior. Experiment with chunky woven baskets for your pot plants, wooden carvings on shelves, bone picture frames on walls and glass vases to reflect light.
