Decor is a crucial element of any dream home, allowing you to introduce colours, style preferences, and additions that truly transform your space. Most commonly, this goal is achieved with the use of things like your furniture itself, your ornaments, and even your artwork. In recent years, the use of textiles has also become a significant element of decor done right.
With their ability to incorporate new tones and textures into any space, varied textiles allow homeowners to achieve unique, eye-catching finishes that can complete the room. Whether you’re new to textiles or want to incorporate them more thoroughly into your space, we’re going to consider why they’re important, and how you can make them work for your home.
Pops of color
Textiles have come more into fashion since minimalist home trends became a norm thanks to their ability to incorporate bright pops of colour into otherwise starkly white rooms.
From bright sofa cushions to patterned made to measure curtains, coloured textiles can brighten a space, add interest to sofa settings, windows, etc., and also just provide relief from what can otherwise be quite a plain style choice.
As cottagecore and cluttercore styles rise in the general consciousness, colourful textiles are also being used in already bright rooms to achieve varied colour schemes, create feature pieces, and more.
Speaking of textures, textiles including macrame wall hangings and fluffy rugs are also increasing in popularity because of their ability to create layered, interesting decor in any room. In interior design, layering is effectively the art of cohesively blending your design choices to add depth and visual effect.
Textiles are uniquely suited to help you achieve this goal thanks to a wide variety of options that can range from silk to matte velvets, and even fluffy or furry finishes.
As well as textures, prints can also work well for creating a layered effect, especially when paired with plain fabrics that share similar colour schemes, or somehow tie in with a key textile like patterned curtains. Overall, playing around here could help to highlight key style choices, and even add much-needed warmth to your rooms.
Completely redecorating your home is expensive, as well as requiring time that many of us just don’t have. Yet, with home styles forever evolving, you may want to change things regularly to keep them fresh.
Luckily, textiles that often become central focuses in your rooms provide you with the opportunity to achieve an amazing home transformation for way less money and effort. By simply changing things like your rugs, cushions, and throws, you can entirely change colour schemes, decor vibes, and your finished style, all within a matter of minutes after bringing your new textiles home.
Textiles can feel like just another element of decor, but they’re increasingly becoming one the most important features of any room. By playing around with colours, textures, and design options across a wide range of textiles, you can create a more welcoming, colourful space to come home to.
