Adding the right and balanced amount of texture in your spaces in no small feat. It takes a lot of experience and a good eye to determine what kind of an accessory or surface may have the desired effect on a certain space. Even if you’re off by a millimeter, your spaces can end up looking like a disaster. This is why today we’ll be sharing 3 awesome ways you can add texture to your interior designs with accessories and claddings.
1. Matt vs. gloss
This image shows a kitchen interior that features a great blend of matt and gloss textures. While the walls and cabinets have all been done up in shiny, attractive high-gloss laminates and glass, the floor provides some much-needed grounding and contrast to the whole look. This is a great example of how you can use different cladding surfaces to add interest in your rooms.
2. Wood and accessories
Wood is one of those materials that you can use without restraint. However, too much of such solid texture in one space can look a bit monotonous. Therefore, in order to stop this from happening, you can use decoration pieces in contrasting colors to balance out the texture of the wood. This image of a bedside table shows how you can successfully do it in an easy and effortless manner.
