We at Wolfgang Interiors – Furniture, Draperies & Design have been in the interior design business for over 20 years, so you can rely on our experience and expertise. Our goal is to help you create the ideal design for your needs and tastes, and the best way to do that is to keep some key design principles in mind. In this article, we’ll go over three principles of great interior design to consider when planning your space.
- Balance. The first principle of great interior design we want to cover is balance. When used in design, balance refers to the positioning of the different elements in a space, and their relative size and visual weight. This doesn’t mean the layout of your space or the art on your walls has to be perfectly symmetrical but take care that the eye isn’t drawn exclusively to one spot.
- Emphasis. The next principle of interior design is emphasis. In the general meaning of the term, emphasis refers to the importance or prominence of something. This meaning carries over to interior design, where emphasis is used to create a focal point for the space. There are a number of ways to achieve this, from directing the light to using a contrasting color, and our team at Wolfgang Interiors – Furniture, Draperies & Design can help you find the perfect way to give your space the visual focus it needs.
- Scale and Proportion. These two elements are so intertwined when it comes to design that we at Wolfgang Interiors – Furniture, Draperies & Design are treating them as two halves of the same principle. Scale and proportion both refer to the size of the different elements in your space and the way that those elements relate to each other. In practice, scale and proportion are used to create visual interest by using contrast to draw the eye.
