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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
- 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.
