In an ideal world, an open space or room would be viewed as a canvas with which you can achieve the desired function and appearance you are aiming for. Indeed, this notion would make a good interior design much more straightforward and simpler to achieve. In reality, however, no one room is created the same as another and sometimes you have to make do with the space that you were allotted. In today’s blog, your Houston, TX designers discuss the beauty behind limitations in space and design, as well as how you can make the most out of limited space.
When Less is More
Nearly everyone has been at that point in their life: you have a riveting concept and a vision you want to come to life, but the room you have allotted to accomplish this goal does not quite fit the bill. It could be that the space itself is too small, or it could be that based on the layout of the space itself the concept may not be as eye-catching as you might have hoped. In situations such as these, it is important to keep a few design tips in mind.
When dealing with a smaller area than what you envisioned, a good rule of thumb is that less is more. Indeed, a common mistake that some may become victim to is overcrowding a space to ensure that your vision is recognized. The problem here is that often too quickly, a room can appear cluttered or as if there is too much going on, thus taking away from the design overall.
Making an effort to strategically plan out the space and only utilize elements that are necessary to your vision can go a long way. What’s more, having the experience and advice of an interior designer can help you achieve this goal much more easily.
Another important factor to consider when making the most of an area is just how much of a role complementary colors can play. The concept of utilizing white space is an excellent way to adhere to the less is more mindset, but adding a splash of a complementary color can really bring a room together. Whether you are looking to make a bold statement through contrast or add a subtle accent, the chemistry between two shades can work wonders.
