Basic Interior Design Principles
No matter what type of environment you want to create, the basic principles of interior design can help you to make your dream room a reality.
Try to create a room with a sense of equilibrium. Create balance through the use of colours, patterns and texture. Balance can be created through the use of symmetrical balance, asymmetrical balance or radial balance. Choose the style that best expresses the personality that you are after in the room.
Create atmosphere by highlighting and emphasising specific elements in a room. You may use a feature wall, a unique piece of furniture, or a piece of art to create a dynamic element in your room. Provide a focal point in the room so that there is flow and dynamism by using an emphasised element.
Don't just focus on the major elements of the room, such as paint and carpet, but instead add depth by utilising every available element. From the architraves to the trimming on the bedside lamp, use every element to provide a richness and depth to a room.
