Is it that time of the renovation? Where you have to pick out tiles and rugs and fabrics and pillow? So many gorgeous textures and so many unique patterns to choose from, right? It’s an overwhelming part of the interior design process that can be challenging to make a single decision on, so today we’ll be featuring your guide to selecting unique textures and patterns for your home renovations!
1. Warm or cool
The first thing you need to ask yourself is whether you want to go for a warm or a cool ambiance. Just answering this simple question can infinitely limit your choice of textures. If the answer is warm, then you need to be looking at wooden textures, and bold colors like red, browns, oranges, tans and more. On the other hand, if the answer is cool, then check out blues, purples, whites and more.
2. Understated or overstated
Here’s another question you need to ask before starting your search for the best patterns – are you looking for something understated or overstated? To the former, you need to start looking for thin-lined, underrated designs. To the later, you need to start looking for bold, statement worthy pieces like rococo style vanity mirrors, oriental rugs and more.
3. From everyday objects
Sometimes, small things like window treatments and a tiny planter arrangement can be all you need to introduce some texture and a unique pattern in your interior design. So if you’re not pleased with anything you find in the market, try searching for a unique window treatment that you can set off with the right décor.
4. On wardrobes and cabinets
Wardrobes and cabinets are the perfect canvas on which to realize some customized patterns and unique textures. The wardrobe door leafs in this image feature a delicate neo-classical inspired wainscoting, which is a great pattern choice to emulate a little tradition in your homes. If you want something more modern, then go for high gloss laminates.
5. When door designs matter
Even the smallest of details matter when you’re emulating a certain style in an interior design, and both the textures and patterns play a huge role in that. This image shows the entrance to a stylish Retro-Scandi style home, and both the doors have been designed to feature each style. the outer one features retro-patterns while the inner one is a more sophisticated Scandinavian style.
