Did you know that you could design the simplest, most uninteresting space and make it look like something absolutely creative by only using patterns? Well, this is the truth. Patterns – both two-dimensional and three-dimensional – have an uncanny way to spruce up a space if you know how to translate them in the right way. Intrigued? Here’s how you can do it:
1. Is it just an area rug
In this day and age, there are many contemporary design elements that have become an essential part of our home interiors. The area rug is definitely one of them, and it needs to be selected very carefully because it can be your best tool to spice up an ambiance with unique patterns. As you already know, there are a lot of area rug types – from traditional Orientals to contemporary hair-on-hide – and each one has something unique to offer. You can pick one that suits the theme of your space in the best manner.
2. Are floors the answer
Area rugs aside, floors are another excellent way to spruce up your spaces with the right patterns. With the entire base as your canvas, you can experiment with different materials, choose your pick of patterns, and even customise a few details here and there to get the best looks.
3. How about using in-builts
In-built shelves and features provide a great opportunity for us to get creative. Yes, you cannot embellish them with typical pattern details, but you can get unconventional with your ideas. For example, if you have a large in-built shelf, you can use its surface to introduce customised grooving, and even tweak the cabinet designs to suit the pattern ratio.
4. How about adding some partitions
Transparency and the use of glass has become a common element in most interior designs these days. However, it can be disconcerting for homeowners who value their privacy. The solution? How about setting up temporary partitions? Half-curtains, colourful glass laminates, and sandblasting are all great ways to spruce up your homes with great patterns without being very obvious about it.
5. Patterns on the bathroom floor
Many homeowners opt for the same conventional fuss-free tiles that are become so common these days. The patterns on the wall tiles are usually contrasted by simple floors, but how about you flip the script? Have you considered going for simple wall tiles and patterned floor ones? This combination is much more impactful – especially when you have an inherent sense for choosing the right colours – than the typical choice.
