Calm and neutral in design, interiors need something more complex and deep in order not to seem boring. Well, you can do it with the help of rough textures. The natural color, roughness and lack of sheen make the room more complicated, textured, but at the same time leave it calm in color.
Contrasting textures help:
- enliven the interior without adding extra color;
- bring natural materials into the home;
- create unusual compositions from improvised means;
- make the interior fashionable and interesting;
- create a favorable environment for visual and kinesthetic people.
So, how exactly to bring contrast into a calm interior? Read below.
#1. Rough pieces of furniture
A separate furniture element of the interior can become an accent in the room, complicate it and attract attention. The base of the bed or just its headboard, nightstand, chest of drawers or console made of rattan or wood will be a special component of a calm room. Such accent details are offered by stores selling restaurant furniture Dubai. It doesn’t matter if it’s outdoor furniture. Rattan or wooden outdoor furniture will fit perfectly into the rustic interior. And in contrast to other pieces of furniture, fabrics and decor, these rough-hewn outdoor furniture will seem deliberately unfinished and handmade, which will add liveliness to the interior.
#2. Rough textures on the walls
A textured wall can be placed behind the head of a bed or sofa. Such an accent in the room eliminates the necessity to hang something on the wall, since the texture of the coating itself will serve as a decoration. A rough surface will help to create textured plaster (concrete or microcement coatings are in fashion), wooden boards, stone or brick.
In contrast to a soft headboard or sofa back, this texture stands out, enhancing the apparent softness of the fabrics. Bed linen will seem delicate and weightless, and sofa cushions will be soft and cozy.
#3. Rough floor
It can imitate old wood or boards worn by time, with a scuffed effect. Such a floor remains smooth or slightly rough to the touch, but its color and texture lead to the idea that this floor has not been treated for a long time.
In the bedroom, elegant living room or nursery, such flooring will look interesting and non-trivial. It will accentuate the finish of painted or wallpapered walls and smooth furniture. To complement such a floor, one small piece of furniture made of raw wood or metal can be
brought into the room.
#3. Rough textures in fabrics
Natural materials such as linen, raw cotton, and canvas are good for adding complexity to a decorative group of pillows on a sofa or bed. One or two such pillows among the usual smooth and soft ones can change the impression of the furniture.
Coarse fibers of pillowcases made from natural raw materials will contrast with smooth satin, velvet, fur, jacquard pillows and bring dynamics to the sensations. Rough textures also include pillows knitted with large patterns and weaves.
#4. Rough decorative interior items
Clay floor vases, candlesticks, figurines and other decorative objects made of rough materials, handmade, or aged, will also become the center of attraction in a calm room. Such pieces of furniture look appropriate in country houses and city apartments in country, loft or industrial styles. In other interior styles, by carefully adding a couple of similar elements, you can create an interesting and unusual contrast.
Placed next to such rough objects, glass vases, figurines or small gizmos of a smooth or shiny texture will enhance the feeling of contrasting materials of these objects. It will be unusual, interesting to look at and feel. Items for such groups should be chosen in a similar color or style so that they fit well and differ only in texture.
If your home lacks expression but doesn’t want to add color, try using the rough texture interior trend. Add expressiveness to the room, and positive emotions for yourself.
