Consistency Is Key: How To Channel Flow In Your Decor

Friday, January 06, 2017

When you decide to remodel your home, and you get to the stage where the interior design planning can begin, it can be an exciting process. Not only are you so ready for a new look, but you’re looking forwards to being involved in every single process. Although you may have a few ideas in mind, it can help to work with an interior designer that has a lot of experience. When you work on your own, you might find that rooms don’t mesh well, even if individually they look great. To give yourself a head-start, take a look at the ways you’re able to create consistency and flow in your home decor.

With Color

Color can be a big contributing factor to creating a strong balance between the rooms in your house. You might choose to use orange in one room, pink in the next and red in the next, but if they clash, the design could start to give you a headache. You don’t have to choose cream walls for consistency, you can play around with color, but it’s usually a good idea to use one palette around the home and stick to it for consistency.

Using A Key Design Theme

You could also be torn between a few different design themes. So much so, that you might be contemplating using a few of them around the home. But, you should always stick to one. If you oft for a very vintage looking bathroom and a minimalistic modern kitchen, the home could lack synergy. You might even find that you get sick on one theme and the corresponding room would need to be redone again eventually anyway.

Feng Shui

You don’t have to be an interior designer to read up on feng shui, or even believe in it. But, when you look at a home that has been created and styled according to the principles of feng shui, you will agree that it looks calm, balanced and effortlessly stylish. If you want to achieve the same effect, it could be a design approach for you. Not only will your home look well put together, but it will be balanced and in harmony too.

Using Pattern

Just like color, the use of different patterns can make or break home decor. If you’re a fan of one print, go with your heart and stick to it. You might find that if you’re using multiple patterns within the home, you can start to get a chaotic vibe - especially if they’re using in the same room or even nearby. Instead, choose a home decor pattern that is simple and tastefully and will work in all rooms.

With One Main Similarity

Sometimes, it pays to be smart with your design. You can work on creating a uniformity throughout your home by sticking with one main similarity between most of the rooms. It could be a feature wall, an animal that you adore, or even a reoccurring print that we talked about in the last point. Either way, the uniformity will channel a great deal of flow through the home and keep it consistent.
