Texture is an interior design element that's often overlooked. But, it's the one that adds depth and character to the home’s design. So, if there’s something missing but you’re not sure what it is, it might be texture. Colours, lines, patterns, texture, and shape altogether makes a room pleasing to look at.

In this one bedroom apartment, the designer showed a few creative ways to add texture to your space. The combination of soft, smooth, and bumpy surfaces completed the home’s design.

Mix and match to create comfort

Take a cue from this living room. Here, the designer laid concrete tiles on the wall to highlight the sofa. It establishes the living room in this open-plan space.

The sofa’s upholstery is an interesting texture as well. The fabrics used to make the sitting area look comfortable. That fuzzy rug underneath is a nice touch. It makes the sitting area more welcoming and homely.

Relate one area to another

Another noticeable design element is the use of 3D brick wall tiles on the TV wall and the island. Present in the dining and living room areas, the 3D wall tiles made the connected areas more related to each other. The roughness contrasts with the smooth white walls.

Decorations add texture too!

Notice the shabby decorations. We admire the use of reclaimed wood here. It’s used as storage, as seen in the kitchen and living area. There’s an old ladder used as a vertical garden. Even the dining table is made of reclaimed wood. Every piece is painted with white to blend seamlessly into the space.

Keep the surfaces of big-ticket items smooth

In this apartment, all of the decorations and minor design elements possess rough surfaces. The big ticket items such as the walls, floor, cabinet surfaces, and countertops are smooth. We recommend that you do the same, since flat and polished surfaces are easier to clean.

Other design ideas to adapt:

Same floor tiles, different areas

As you can see, the tiles are laid differently in the next room. In the common room, the floorboards are horizontal. In the study area, the floorboards are vertical. The designers did this to trick the viewer’s eye. They are trying to make the living room more spacious. In the other room, they want the study to look elongated.

Small living spaces? Use curtains

Curtains are window treatments that don’t eat floor space. If you live in a tiny apartment like this, use curtains. They are the ultimate space savers and they do the job.

Have one accent colour per room

In the common areas, it’s the bright apple green colour. In the study, it’s the colour sky blue. In the bathroom, it’s red.

Black bathroom tiles

Most homeowners want a bright and white bathroom. Little did they know that black bathrooms look more luxurious. Here, the designer laid smooth back tiles all over the bathroom and accentuated the shower, vanity, and toilet with red tiles and blue LED lights. This looks like a bathroom of a bachelor pad.
