Designing what your house should and will look like, is a fun and tempting thing. There are different ‘styles’ trademarked for every kind of ‘taste’ which a person may want out of the design on his/her room’s decoration.
Your preference might be anything, from minimal furniture and fittings to a design where only the furniture and fittings can be seen and not the floor! For every purpose, there’s a design. We list some of these; see if you can relate some with your own taste.
Interior Design Styles
Here are the few basic design styles in decorating the interiors of a house. These are only the basic ones and a lot many advancements and improvements have been made over these in the modern times.
If you are a fan of the earlier ages and you want to have the interior of your home designed along the same lines, go for the traditional designs. This style is mainly signified by the presence of sturdy and heavier furniture and fittings.
The chairs and the tables are made of wood, with the chairs having cushioned seats and cushioned (or non-cushioned) backrests, which are normally taller. The colors of choice are often mellow and not very ‘loud’. This includes moss green, beige, chocolate brown, etc. Big lamps and bigger portraits & wall arts are the few of the fittings.
As the name suggests, the design is based on the Victorian times, i.e. the style which defined the interiors back in those days. One word, which defines the design, is ‘past’.
The decoration is often known as elegant and the space was often filled with numerous furniture. The floors were heavily carpeted and the beds were, well, overdressed. Due to all these aspects, at times it all looked too much for one room to handle.
Contemporary is what modern styling has been named. It puts off the use of unnecessary things, ornate and material which will unavoidably block more space. The design emits the neatness required. The wiring and the other important, but extra, hardware are kept hidden from normal view!
Every closet and every condensed space have been conjured up to become wardrobes and closets, which stay only when required and then disappears from view. Mostly, light colors are used and sometimes, brighter pops are used over these colors. Most furniture pieces are of low height and there’s a kind of repetition in the certain pairs of fittings; a good kind of repetition.
The main idea for conjuring up a rustic design in your rooms is the use of different textures. Form woody furniture and fittings, taking up the living space, to mountain lounges, etc.
It is a unique kind of interior design style, which was popular during the 1990s. Most of the color combinations in this style included black, for example black and red, black and white, etc. Often, these color combinations had a kind of ‘metal accent’.
Some other interior design styles are art & craft, cottage, mid century-modern, shabby chic, etc. Hopefully, you have gained a particular bit of knowledge on this topic.
