Three factors that should influence your interior design

When you're planning the perfect layout for your living room or deciding the decor for your bedroom, there are many factors to consider. From the size of your home to the amount of light you receive per day, these factors can have a direct influence on your chosen furniture or even the colour of your walls and flooring. If you're looking to upgrade your home, here are some things to consider before you begin ordering your oriental inspired furniture:

Space and shape

The first factor you should consider when choosing to redecorate your home is the shape and size of the space you're trying to redesign. Depending on the floor space available, your priorities for each space may change.

A more significant room could feel cosier and less open with wall-based pieces of furniture such as the simplistic Qing black and gilt large bookcase, providing subtle touches without overpowering. Combine this style of furniture with polished surfaces and dark finishings for a sophisticated style.

On the other hand, a smaller room may benefit from lighter tones, mirrored surfaces and single focus pieces, such as the stunning Oriental decorated blue sideboard, to add a touch of colour without overpowering a space. Add whites and light blues to this palette to create a genuinely striking style.

Light and colour

A light and bright room that lets in a lot of daily sunlight can have an entirely different feel to one that gets less sunlight, this should be considered when you decide on furnishings for individual rooms. To avoid a clinical feeling, opt for colour and texture in rooms with a lot of sunlight, which will show off the furniture at its best.

For darker rooms, however, light and bright colours such as the Qing oyster grey large console can create the appearance of additional space within the room. Combine with great lighting and simple accessories to make a dark room feel bright again.

Atmosphere and aesthetic

The way we decorate a room directly reflects our personality - so as well as following the above factors when it comes to decorating your home, it's also important to consider how you want a room to feel. A calm and serene bedroom can be the perfect addition to a busy and bustling home, while a refined and dark-toned palette can add a certain level of formality to a living room that can contribute to the tone you'd like for that particular area.
