No interior design can seem fully dynamic without the use of shapes. By shapes, we refer to basic geometry, and that seems to be the general visual discount that happens to create dynamism in our interior space. From squares and rectangles to even triangles, there are some basic shapes that you need to consider while designing any interior. Let’s look at 5 ways you can use shapes to make your interior designs more visually dynamic and interesting.
1. A triangle
A triangle has three sharp, pointy edges, which is why it is one of the most stand-out forms you can use in your interior designs. It has an immediate visual impact that can make any space seem very edgy and interesting. If you take a look at this image, you’ll immediately notice the media wall that has been designed with the triangle as the basic shape.
2. Longitudinal rectangles
A single glance at this image can tell you that the room is basically very small. This is why the designers have incorporated the tall order of rectangles to make this space seem longitudinal in height. The elongated forms of the rectangle give the space much more dimension than any other shape may have provided.
3. Horizontal rectangles
Horizontal rectangular shapes have been used in this interior design to give the illusory quality of more space. It has been incorporated through the shelving and furniture design, and reinforced through the use of horizontal lines. It’s a great technique to use when you’re working with narrow spaces.
4. Cabinet boxes
A kitchen can never be complete without proper cabinets, and it’s these cabinets that are designed in the form of visually dynamic shapes. The best part about kitchen cabinets is that there is a lot of liberty you can take with the design itself. You can play with vertical and horizontal rectilinear shapes of several sizes to get your desired aesthetic.
5. In three dimensions
If you look at this bathroom design, you’ll see how the designers have used boxy shapes in all three dimensions. Even the change of materials has made the look extremely dynamic. Instead of looking boring and one-dimensional, it looks absolutely amazing.
