The process of design is never truly black and white. It is always unique and customized. There may be a few common traits here and there, but at the end of the day every aspect of design is unique to the users. Let's get these 5 design secrets straight from professionals!
1. Don’t design beyond your means
Sometimes, too much designing can be just as detrimental as too little of it. It all actually depends on the quality of your space. If you go beyond your means by making a limited space overwhelmingly designed, then it won’t ever come out as ergonomic or user-friendly. The only thing it may ever look is overbearing and weird.
2. Be qualitative, not quantitative
The quality of the space depends in the amount of visual, physical and psychological comfort it provides for its users. Any designer worth their salt would halt you in the process if you suggest putting so-and-so accessories in one corner, and so-and-so in the other. Yes, the ornamentation matters, but that’s only until you respect the dimensions of your space.
3. Simple yet unique
Whoever said simplicity is boring has never actually seem the true power of minimalism. A minimal style design always carries much more pathos then a regular themed setting. Less is more is actually pretty impactful. You simply have to understand the intricacies of the minimal style aesthetic for your space to look truly attractive and soothing at the same time.
4. Understand your anthropometry
Every respectful designer can tell you that an interior design that doesn’t respect the human anatomy, scale and proportion is completely worthless. That is exactly what anthropometry actually is; designing according to the human scale to make the space the epitome of ergonomic. For example, a kitchen space with too little moving roetry actually is; designing according to the human scale to make the space the epitome of ergonomic. foom is basically worthless in the grand scheme of things.
5. Respect your lifestyle
Do you know what makes every interior design unique? It’s the fact that each space has been designed to accommodate a certain lifestyle. Two very different families can choose to imply the same interior design style, but at the end of the day, they can never truly be similar because each one is going to be designed around the needs of a specific lifestyle.
