When deciding on the interiors of your home, you may consider things like use of space and colour schemes, but when you take textures into account, your home design as a whole will be thrown into a new dimension.
If you're anything like us, then watching home improvement shows and interior design series are your guilty pleasures. The likes of The Great Interior Design Challenge are a great way to stay up to date on current trends. One of the comments shared countless times in the recent series was the use of different textures to add luxury and a contemporary feel.
How can you get started? Here are some ways to dip your toe into the texture trends and the fabulous impact they can have on your home:
- Luxe textures such as velvet and suede. These textures work perfectly in a living room or bedroom to help build a comfortable and high-end feel. You can add a touch of this by using a velvet bottom on your curtains, or adding suede cushions to your sofa.
- Add self-patterned fabrics to add depth. These are pieces which have a pattern in the same fabric as the main piece, so they add depth and texture without being garish. These work beautifully on wallpapers and long curtains, particularly in the bedroom.
- Use textures in your tiles. You will have probably seen that the industrial look is in fashion, but if you'd rather not take your walls back to brickwork, you can source beautifully textured wall tiles for your kitchen.
- Add texture using accessories. When you think of accessories in a room and adding texture, your first thought may dash to the cushions or throws, but have you considered other ways to add a touch of texture? There are some wonderful ways to add a more tactile feeling to your home using accessories such as glass vases and industrial styled lighting. Texture doesn’t have to be 3D it can be smooth as well - think of copper and metal fixings, or wooden trinkets on your shelves.
Whichever way you want to add it, textures are another way to make your home more inviting, and can be a new way to update your home without completely changing your scheme. To find out how we can help add new textures to your home through curtains and blinds, get in touch.
