Here’s a Basic Guide to be A Proper Interior Designer

Why bother with the five interior design principles, you may be asking yourself. Shouldn’t the interior
designer be in charge of this?

  1. Balance
    By ensuring that the elements are appropriately distributed throughout the room, balance refers to
    producing a feeling of visual harmony. This creates a feeling of balance in your design. It can be done
    in a variety of ways, such as with the use of shapes, colors, patterns, and even textures.
  2. Unity
    The unity concept emphasizes a feeling of harmony or uniformity among the design elements. These
    include matching hues, patterns, or textures, evenly spaced objects, or the repetition of pieces to
    give the illusion of continuity.
  3. Rhythm
    Using the same color or pattern at various intervals is one of several techniques to establish rhythm.
    You could paint a wall green, for instance, and then put the same color on the cushions for the dining
    chairs. It’s known as repeating rhythm. Alternating two elements in an ABABAB or ABBABB pattern,
    such as switching between two different types of pendant lights, is another way to employ
    alternation to produce rhythm.
  4. Contrast
    When two or more drastically contrasting shapes are combined, contrast in interior design is
    produced. Once more, this can be accomplished using either color, form (shape), or space. The
    simplest approach to create contrast is by color, such as by painting with contrasting hues like black
    and white. Additionally, you can balance two dissimilar shapes next to one another, such as a circular
    mirror and a rectangle dining table.
  5. Scale and Ratio
    The ratio is the key idea in this approach. To avoid having items in a room look out of place, their
    sizes and dimensions should be proportionate to one another. For instance, a gigantic chandelier
    shouldn’t be hung in a tiny flat, and bean bags shouldn’t be the size of the furniture in a room with
    high ceilings. Designers often use the 1.618 ratio, which is known as the golden ratio. Greeks
    invented it, and artists and architects have utilized it to establish harmony in design ever since.
