When you walk into a space that’s been thoughtfully and expertly designed, you immediately feel a sense of attention to detail. At Pabs, our team of expert property stylists are quick to highlight the importance of texture in achieving that level of detail.
Great interior design isn’t just about choosing complementing colours or a certain furniture aesthetic. Interior design is about a combination of multiple elements working together to build function, form and visual appeal. While everyone’s preferences for interior design are different (meaning there’s no single ‘right’ way to style a space), understanding fundamental interior design principles can make a huge difference in the way a room comes together.
Texture is one aspect of interior design that plays a significant role. Used to add points of interest, warmth or comfort, texture is a key contributor of depth and dimension within any space. When a room lacks texture or only uses a single texture in its hard and soft furnishings, there’s a good chance it will feel unfinished or static.
By looking for opportunities to bring new textures into existing spaces, you can transform the room’s visual impact and overall design aesthetic.
Common furniture textures
Texture allows you to easily build a tactile quality into your interior spaces. This is particularly important when it comes to furniture, with many opportunities for exciting design impacts through the combination of multiple textures.
Key textures that can bring depth, detail and warmth to furniture include:
Upholstered furniture is also a popular choice in home staging or property styling design choices, with a range of customisable options allowing it to easily fit into specific design styles or colour schemes. Even a single upholstered chair can add vibrant warmth and interest to a room, creating a focal point that draws the eye.
The role of textures in home staging and property styling
Home staging and property styling is a popular service for people looking to sell their home. By staging a home with furniture rentals, you can invite potential buyers to imagine what their lives could be like in that space, adding warmth and appreciation in a way an empty home can’t achieve.
Incorporating a variety of textures is a major element of our home staging and property styling services. By drawing on various textures, we can create that welcome invitation, building enthralling atmospheres that enhance the perceived value of the home itself.
Simple elements such as throw pillows, blankets and rugs can immediately add this interest and detail to interior spaces. Textured soft furnishings can also help a room feel ‘finished’, adding a lived-in feature that the simple placement of furniture can’t achieve on its own.
