When it comes to selecting the major design elements for you interior designs, it’s better to be as simple as possible. While recurring patterns and lots of textures are not a bad way to go about things, they usually translate better in larger, commercial interior designs. So when it comes to residential interiors, it’s always better to stick with simple linear geometry. Today, we’ll be featuring 5 ways you can use vertical lines to make your homes more impressive!
1. One catchy element
If you’ve chosen to go with the vertical line aesthetic, then of course you’re going to have to use it in a recurring manner. However, you also need one vertical bold design element that stands out from the rest. If you look at this image, you’ll see the tall, customized design on the partition wall that has become the highlight of the whole design. This is a great technique you can use to set your design apart.
2. A vertical rhythm
To make sure that the vertical geometry you’re using in your space actually stands out, you must use it in a rhythmic pattern. If you take a look at this image, you’ll see how the vertical lines f the shelf override the horizontal geometry. Similarly, the design on the walls and the door creates a great visual rhythm that keeps the eye moving!
3. Subtle but impactful
If you’re going for an idea that is subtle, then you also need to ensure that the end result is totally impactful. The kitchen interior design in this image is largely horizontal. However, the vertical window and in-built appliances at the end of the space are an impactful reminder of the vertical theme that’s running throughout the rest of the home.
4. Use framing
All out of ideas on how to make your vertical geometry a standout part of the whole design? Here’s a fresh one for you! You can use bold framing on your doors, window, artwork and even mirrors to emulate a vertical element in your interior designs. However, make sure that the rest of the space is lighter in design so as not to override the verticality.
5. Even window treatments
If you’re going for the most inherent effect to emulate verticality in your interior designs, then you should look for methods that fit seamlessly into your whole space. For example, the beautiful window treatment in this image shows how you can introduce vertical design elements through necessary means in your interior design.
