These are the Most Important Interior Design Elements, According to Designers

Here in Superdraft, our designers believe that you don’t need a lot of stuff in your home to make it feel complete. Less is more magical. When it comes to home interiors, we focus on three things: texture, colour, and scale. For us, these are the most important interior design elements. These three hold the key to a cozy home you’ll love.

If you want to know the right approach for each one, continue reading:


? Combine different textures in one room. Layer items that are rough, bumpy, smooth, silky, soft, fluffy, furry… and more.

Texture stimulates our sense of sight and tough. The more textured things we can see, the more interesting the room becomes. So, in a room where we have smooth walls and furniture pieces, add textured rugs, flowy drapery, rutted vintage pieces, or just natural fibres. Maintain a balance between the even and uneven surfaces to keep your space comfy.


? Layer colours in a room to add depth.

This works, even if you use three neutral colours. If you plan to use colours from a single colour family, find a light colour, a dark colour, and one shade in between them. But, try to avoid getting all matchy matchy. Inject a bold colour that blends with the original palette. Throw in a bright and intense colour to highlight some areas of the house. Choose a highlighter that contrasts or stands out against most of the colours you chose.


? Don’t be afraid to use large pieces of furniture and decorations. These pieces enhance the height and width of the room. To balance it out, put these tall pieces next to small and short ones.

For example, a low sofa will look great beside a tall bookshelf. Try to balance the heavy and bold pieces as well.

When it comes to decor, follow the 3:1 ratio. Group three different items with roughly the same height, then add one that’s larger, bigger, or taller than them.

More importantly, leave enough Breathing space. Negative space is as important as the furniture and decor pieces you have in your home. Negative space keeps the room from looking cramped and cluttered.READ: 7 Home Styling Secrets from Superdraft’s Interior DesignersLiked this article?
