Most people think that once they manage to make their interior look grandeur, exclusive, and luxurious, they have done a very good job. Well, not necessarily so. If you fail to include function, personality, and mood into the room – no matter how superb or amazing the décor is – then you are not doing any good job. Those three elements should be included in any decoration project that you are working on. The room should reflect who you are and what you are interested into. It also sets the tone of whether the room should be cheerful, gloomy, dark, serious, or fun. And despite the décor, the room should fulfill certain functionality whether it is being used for recreation, working, relaxing, or others.
If you don’t really care about the aesthetic element and you just want the room to fully function well according to your wish, here are things to do so – and you need to do it based on different elements and parts.
- Make sure it has a focal point. Some rooms have their own natural focal points. But if they don’t, it is your job to make one. Placing different furniture with different colors in the same hue arrangement will do. Or if you want to create your own particular favorite point – creating unique fireplace, spots by the windows, corner table and desk, etc – it is all up to you.
- Choosing the right furniture is also important. The size should fit nicely on the room – not too big or too small – so everything will feel harmonious and balance. Don’t be afraid to use separated items if the set ones don’t work well for you.
- Lighting also plays important role in the decoration aspect. You can use indirect lights as well as direct lights. If you want to focus on certain details, color, or texture, use accent lighting.
