The 3 Values Of Home Design

24.7.19

Whether you are designing a brand new home, or you are just starting to think about how you might improve your current one, there are many things that you might need to consider. The more that you understand what kind of elements are important in home design, the more likely it is that you can create the kind of home you really want, so this is something that is going to prove important in any case. In this post, I am going to share 3 of the major values of home design which you need to be aware of. By ensuring that you get the balance between these right, you can create the perfect home for you and your family!


Space
Any home needs a good amount and balance of space. If you need to redesign your home, then you will need to do so with a good understanding of how you are going to create and use the space in the home. There are a lot of ways to create more space, whether that is through loft conversions or extensions, or by decluttering some of the furniture you own. You can also create extra feeling of space by using reflective surfaces, creating smaller areas within bigger ones using lighting, and other similar means. As long as you get the value of space down well, you will find that your home is going to be much better designed on the whole.

Line
By this, I mean the way that you create a sense of form and shape using lines of different kinds, in different directions and of different lengths. This is considerably harder to wrap your head around than something like space. But if you can get to the point where you are creating good lines, you will find that it makes a huge difference to the design on the whole, and that you are probably going to be able to create a connection between the different elements in a room, and in the home more generally. Playing around with the lines between things can be a powerful way to create new sights.

Colour
It’s clear enough that colour is important, but the way in which you should approach it is much more of a mystery, and something that you will find takes plenty of trial and error. In general, try to avoid using too much of a variety of colour throughout the home, and instead settle on a few choice colours which you can champion here and there. That will stop things from being overcrowded, and it will be an easier palette to work with as you redesign your home (or decide to redecorate in the future).
