‘A HOUSE IS MUCH MORE THAN A MERE SHELTER, IT SHOULD LIFT US EMOTIONALLY AND SPIRITUALLY’.

Designing your interior is not just selecting furniture and accessories for a house. Interior of a house, a living room or any place must be a whole mood. In this article, we have tried to put all the elements of interior design. For the people wanting to redo their houses or rooms, here is a complete guide to 2021 trends of interior decor.

3. PRINCIPLES OF INTERIOR DESIGN 

It is important to emphasize that interior design is a specialized branch of architecture or environmental design. The best buildings and the best interiors are those in which there is no apparent disparity between the many elements that make up the totality. For instance, these elements are the structural aspects of a building, the site planning, the landscaping, the furniture, and the architectural graphics (signs), as well as the interior details. Likewise, the interior desi ner is concerned with the more intimately scaled aspects of design, the specific aesthetic, functional, and psychological questions involved, and the individual character of spaces.

4. PHYSICAL COMPONENTS OF INTERIOR DESIGN

The aesthetic components of the design go hand in hand. For instance, if you want to have a dream home interior, first of all, have a look at the main components of the interior. The full or total effect is more important than the specific device or element used.

The search for natural elements will be the primary way: wood, iron, glass and stone will be the dominant materials. Similarly, experts, architects, interior designers and experts will advise for those who want to renovate their home in the New Year.

Ceiling

 Together with walls, flooring and furniture, this part of the room plays a significant role in the overall design idea. Usually, ceilings are often ignored by amateur designers and even by professional designers. Conversely, few modern designers take advantage of the design possibilities offered by ceilings. For instance, the latest trends in ceilings include;

  • Textural effects of wood
  • Simple plaster ceiling
  • Since most modern ceilings are low, a heavy texture or an intense colour could create a depressing feeling; hence, the popularity of a plain white ceiling. 
  • Lower ceilings in the dining area is also a new trend.
  • Mirror effect. It is not necessary to lay the mirror on the entire ceiling – you can draw a small surface area with it.
  • Carved ceiling. Similarly, the use of carvings in the design of the ceiling is a great way to get not only a stylish but also a unique room design.
  • Textiles. Quite expensive and challenging. However, the result is worth it. Fabric ceilings continue to gain the appreciation of world-leading designers.
