Functional space, the most important element of interior design, is the base of the entire interior design. Both users and designers should be well aware of the availability of the space and its purpose. Space can be positive and negative i.e. a space that will be used to place the furniture and a space that will be empty like hallways respectively. The positive and negative space must be balanced as too crowded or too empty space can make the look of your house/ office unappealing and tacky.
Colors bring life and vibrance even to non-living things and help to bring balance to our life. The choice of colors can have a huge impact on you, psychologically. Each color has three distinctive aspects- Hue, Value, and Intensity. A good interior designer must be well aware of these three aspects to perform all kind of pairing combinations of the colors. A good designer must know what kind of colors will go with the bedroom wall and what kind of colors will suit the living room- providing the user with a happy and stable mindset.
Texture and pattern
Pattern and textures bring an appealing look to a room. A pattern is created by the use of a repetitive design and can be found in wallpaper, soft furnishings, rugs, and fabrics. Patterns come in various types, such as stripes, geometric, pictorial, organic, motif, and animal prints. Different texture or patterns add depth to space together and uplift the vibe and appearance of the room. One must remember to always strike a balance with the overall composition of the space and patterns without being too much or too little. Moreover, with a beautifully designed textured carpet, your room may get the weathered or vintage feel without even touching it.
Be it natural, or artificial, light helps us and other things in our room shine to its full potential. Light can have a major impact on the mood and aura within the space. Light can be broken into the categories of task lighting (defined purpose), accent lighting (emphasizing objects), and mood lighting (adding ambiance). Artificial lighting can be of different types and be of different uses; however, it cannot beat the natural, eco-friendly light. If the owner or designer could integrate the natural lighting source design into the building then it would be the best design.
