5 times you committed interior design faux pas
It is important to design interiors that walk a fine line between functions and aesthetics, so today we will be looking at five interiors that have the trappings of a design faux pas.
- Centerpieces in retail
There is always a specific organization even in the midst of chaos when it comes to designing anything. So when you design any commercial setting, be it retail or anything else, make sure that the centerpieces come displays do not become s hindrance to the customer. In the interior below, you will see that the low height black centerpiece and its adjoining back troupe does not enhance the aesthetic nor the circulation of the retail display. Instead, it becomes a hindrance to the collection on the left, leaving too little space to comfortably reach out the top or bottom shelves.
- Round pegs in square holes
While the concept of a round shape in square places may seem very eclectic and contemporary, the actual ramifications of this interior design faux pas are very critical. Each design principle warns against the use of juxtaposed shapes in a single interior space. They end up muddling the actual concept of the theme. If you look at the image below, you will see how the effect of the round ceiling in the square room negatively impacts the overall ambiance of the room. The actual outlook is quite disconcerting in the end.
- Third wheel stool
Any designer worth their salt would cringe at this mega interior faux pas. Even though the majority of this interior is sophisticated enough, the addition of the third stool in the most incorrigible of the bar’s side is what makes the unintentional faux pas such a disconcerting experience. There is a fine line between function and aesthetic, and this faux pas has firmly planted itself into the pragmatic side of the design.
- The Chamfer Cupboard
One of the basics of any exterior wardrobe design is that it not interfere with the aesthetics. In the image below, you see a prime example of what can happen when space conservation via functionality stands in the way of the aesthetics. The uneven cut of the wardrobe creates a visual disparity with the rest of the design. The symmetry is comprised entirely, making this interior a baffling joke at the expense of proper pragmatism.
- The Light and Dark of design
Sometimes the lines get too bold against a light color and that can create a rather disconcerting effect regarding the aesthetics of the interior. In the image below, you can see how if one overpowering color dominates the entire scheme, then the entire aspect of theme can sway in one direction. Visual balance is important, so no matter what color scheme you choose, be prudent about it.
