Interior design is both science and art. Equal attention is given to the size of each room and the colors that will make it stand out. There are particular templates–such as not using two particularly bright colors together–but each room is usually unique. An interior designer’s job is to map out everything, from textures to colors to fabrics, and where they should go.
Now, wouldn’t it be nice if you could go about this in an organized manner? Here’s how to do that:
There’s software for engineers to use in designing their latest project; there’s also software for interior designers to help them manage the design of a room or an entire house. Through this software, you won’t forget key elements, such as the room’s size, particularly the ceiling height and the positioning of doors and windows.
Be Ready with Swatches
When shopping for items to include in the room, you’ll want to pay attention to paints and fabrics. There are different textures to consider, and you’ll want them to work together seamlessly. What separates an interior designer from just a regular homeowner choosing for themselves is the attention to detail. While a homeowner might just see a peach wallpaper, you see a matte finish with trimmings of beige or a combination of velvet and leather furniture.
Clear Your Mind
You don’t need to be thinking of so many things at once. When presented with a new room to design, you want to be free of any distractions. Simplicity works best. A clear mind helps you choose the focal point of the room and decide how to design around it. You aim for harmony in design, and you only achieve that when your mind is uncluttered with details, you will not need all at once. But the best part is, through practice, you access these details as you need them.
Interior designers know that to create a good design for each space, they need to consider several elements. Keep those elements accessible, but don’t let them cloud your mind.
