God lies in the details

For any interior design project, the detail in the room is of primary importance. Details include the floor pattern, the light switches, the false ceiling, the door handles, soft furnishing; Everything needs attention and is considered detail. Details enhance the overall theme; It is godly when the details are in harmony and, when wrong, the devil’s work. 

Even a minor change can increase the use of any product. The intricate details in interior design aren’t significant individually but are consequential to the whole room. Every little detail works out together to compose an efficient flawless plan. 

A detail is considering the finishing or the embellishment of everything. It also includes answering questions- like what the forms and shapes are in play, how do the surfaces work with each other. Detailing is giving attention to every tiny part of the design, structure and décor of everything in the room.

Here are some initial interior design pointers to make a room intriguing. 

Focus point- Where do I look right now? 

A design-conscious room depends on its size; it has a minimum of one focal point. A focal point is the most dominant feature that draws attention and encourages the viewer to look deeper. It leaves a lasting impression; linked to the scale, colour, style.

In an everyday household, the focal point for a living room is usually a TV or the fireplace. If any space is without the two, A statement piece of furniture, artwork or a contrasting coloured area creates the missing focal point.

Lighting curates the mood of the room.

An effective lighting scheme creates drama with a play of light and shadow. The room doesn’t need an even tone; it looks bland and uninteresting. Creating a contrast of light and shade is a stimulating experience. The designer should aim to choose different layers of lighting and see how they work together.

Lighting and colour are intimately linked together. When choosing the scheme, give attention to the colours and the finishes and what response it creates under the proposed lighting. 

  • Certain things the designer can experiment with include-
  • Adjusting the height of the light
  • Light themes that tie the interiors together.
  • Highlighting certain spots with ambient lighting.
  • Play with the shadow the lighting fixtures cast on the surrounding.

Along with employing artificial lights, the designer needs to understand the effect natural light has on the design. The lighting scheme isn’t just for the night but also the daytime.

Do the colours work together?

Colours have a specific impact on the experience that the designer intends to create. It affects the occupant’s mood and energy levels. Interior design is about the right kind of atmosphere for every activity.

For instance, a bedroom is a space where the occupant can unwind. Thus, the colour scheme should help create that. Colours like green, blue, purple have stress-relieving characteristics.

Colours also reflect the user’s personality and preferences. A colour change can accentuate the shape and size of any furnishing and the entire room.

Plan the details with the client

The interior design details have to complement the chosen theme of the room. When paying attention to the design details, the designer should keep the budget in mind. Budgeting is a crucial aspect of any interior design project.

Budget planning takes a lot of time, but a well-planned one always has its benefits. The selection of elements like art and ornament can uplift the room. Sometimes, the theme revolves around a specific piece; everything else works in harmony with it.

Accessorise the room

Accessories added personalisation to the room. Things like rugs, pillows, candle holders, mirrors, picture frames, vases, etc., add a feeling of warmth and hearth. The right accessories transform the room completely.

Furniture is also an accessory of sorts. Find simple but thought out details to match the room. Statement furniture changes the ambience of the interiors.

Accessories are not just for the eyes and touch but also for the nose. Fragrances affect how space feels; consider them when selecting materials for the room. Nothing overpowering but like a soothing freshness for the room.  

In conclusion

God truly lies in details; details shouldn’t overwhelm, the right balance enhances the entire experience for the occupant. When a designer is considerate towards intricate details and the builder implements them correctly- the result is a streamlined cosy home.
