Proper lighting, ventilation and transparency are three of the key elements of any successful interior design. No matter how pretty your color scheme or how trendy your material palate, you can never have a fully-fledged holistic home interior design without these three features. So further, we’re going to share 5 useful hacks that you can use to make your home lit and transparent at the same time.
1. Natural and artificial
The extensive use of a blend of natural and artificial light used in this living room interior design is what gives it a light, breezy and airy look despite being adorned in a relatively dull and ‘industrial’ inspired color scheme. The careful blend of ceiling lights coupled with the trendy Venetian style window coverings completely transforms the overall ambiance of the space.
2. Window to window
The concept of transparency in this interior design has been achieved by designing a framed half-glass wall right in front of the window portals. The half-solid wall creates a nice segregating between the study and the living room area while the upper half – that consists of the glass – makes sure that all the natural light that comes in through the windows is equally shared throughout the space.
3. Large circulation space
If you want your interior design to be well lit and adequately transparent then it is definitely advised to invest in spacious circulation spaces. These areas connect the various parts of your home and need to be well-lit and breezy enough not to feel constrained. So always make sure your lobbies and corridors have a great natural light connection and are sufficiently wide.
4. For small rooms
Thinking you have a small home, and it’s just impossible to compromise on the privacy of some spaces? When such a case arises, it is best to go with the most effective transparency intervention – the half-glass wall. Half of this wall can be solid, while half is transparent. This way you can make the space seem relatively open and not completely enclosed.
5. Visual connections
It is crucial to create visual connections between spaces – not only to ensure proper lighting – but also because seeing another part of your home while sitting in another makes it seem inherently deluxe and open.
