5 tips to set your interior apart
The contemporary world has become a true global village – there are so many ideas that have become truly single-minded that it hard to create something that is singular and completely stand alone. Someone, somewhere will always have access to your ideas, and try to implement them in their own ways. In case of interior designing, this phenomenon is especially true – the globalized use of similar materials, design and textile leaves very small leeway for individualized design. But rest assured, a few strokes of dynamic interlocking of several design ideas is all it takes to set our spaces apart. Today, we will be looking at some creative tips to set your interior apart from the rest.
- Thinking inside the box
Square and rectangular formations are one that are ubiquitous in all aspects of interior design – whether it be the physical form of the room, or anything that resides in it. A good way to think outside of the box is to deal within it; as demonstrated by the interior below, where the creative use of blocky wall cladding and furniture design take away all the requisite triteness from the design, leaving a nice, spatial rhythm behind.
- Psychological barriers
In the era of open space planning, there is very little to be done in setting the spaces apart aside from their furniture typologies. In these cases you could always use colors, lighting and textures to create psychological boundaries in between spaces. In the image below, you’ll see a bedroom that might have bled into the lobby had it not been for the navy blue stripe running along the side.
- Nifty closet spaces
A closet is almost always designed in a regular square-ish formation. To deviate from that would be to work with challenging space design; as in the image below, that showcases a truly inspiring walk-in closet that is neither a square nor a rectangle, but something creative and undefinable.
- Half-walls and color psychology
Usually, it is only through furniture that contemporary layouts set apart the space typology. However, you could always use creatively designed half-walls to create physical barriers between spaces. In the image below, you’ll see how the small dining nook is designed based on bold colors and laid out against the simple black wall.
- The space in between
It is a well-known design taboo to create a non-ventilated space – especially bedrooms and bathrooms, which need natural light to keep the ambiance clean and relative. However, you can always take creative license about how to get the light inside these spaces that are in-between, as they do not always have to be bed and baths. As shown in the image below, the music room is a space of its own, designed by using mild steel structures and transparent glass to let in light, despite of all physical barriers.
