Have you ever walked into a room in your home and felt like you needed to add a little something to make it more complete? What you might be missing is depth from the lack of texture. Texture in a room is important because it adds a level of dimension and allows elements to play off of one another. Think shaggy area rug on the floor, a smooth leather couch, decorative wall décor or plants to brighten a room. All of these materials bring a room that may feel “flat” to life with texture throughout the home. Budget Blinds has put together a list of simple ways to add depth with texture to your home décor.
Decorative pillows are an easy way to add texture to a space. We recommend using several pillows in the same color scheme, but with different fabrics so each has a unique texture. Budget Blinds has thousands of colors and patterns to choose from—you can add beads, buttons, and other embellishments to your throw pillows to create your own personalized look.
If you don’t have carpet and want to include the floor in your texturing balance, you can choose a plush or shag area rug that will contrast nicely with wood floors. Area rugs work well to help define a space, especially if you have an open floor plan. There are so many patterns and colors available that will add great texture to your home décor.
We love adding natural elements to a space to make it feel cozier. Plants add subtle texture to a room with their vibrant color and depth. If live plants aren’t appealing to you, try a preserved boxwood plant. They are a perfect choice for those who aren’t great “plant moms” or have allergies.
You can always add texture to a room using your window treatments. If your living area is full of cozy, soft materials, then add texture by using a rougher material to cover the windows like real or faux wood blinds. If your space is filled with more texture, than create a balance with softer draperies.
An easy way to add texture and depth to your home is by hanging art, photos or other wall décor. You can easily add tile, wood, or stones to one wall to create a focal point and add visual depth to the space or even hang up a beautiful satin tapestry that draws attention.
Varying Shades and Furniture
Texture is also added when you use various shades of a color in a room instead of trying to match the exact shade throughout the room. Have fun mixing and matching similar colors, adding depth and warmth to your home. In addition, add textured furniture pieces like a leather couch, velvet or satin chairs, or a rough wooden coffee table or bookshelf for the ultimate look.
We hope that this quick tutorial on depth and texture was helpful and that you feel inspired to try it yourself. Don’t be afraid to try new things in your home, the end results are usually amazing! And for all your window treatment, area rug and throw pillow needs, think of the experts at Budget Blinds.
