When we ask other people their definition of a well-designed space, the first thing that comes into their minds is comfort. And comfort is usually associated with the idea of choosing a soft seating option and that’s it. However, comfort comes from the harmony between each element of interior design: from the colours, the furniture arrangement, lighting, decoration, architecture… – everything influences the way we feel and how much comfortable a room is. The special aspect of the interior design world is exactly that: not a unique element makes the whole room well-designed.
And, when it comes to comfort, the development is even more challenging as everything needs to fit the mood – and each client has its own definition of comfort, right?
After all, what makes a room comfortable?
Comfort begins with what are you sitting on. And every little detail makes the difference and will do wonders in every kind of space:
- It must be produced with high-quality materials, so it can endure without ever losing its quality.
- Try different kinds of foams so you can pick which one you like the most.
- Be smart when choosing fabrics, keep in mind your client’s lifestyle. For some of them, it can be good if it is easy to clean, or even pet proof.
If your client loves to receive guests, it would be better if you could add more options to seat, such as armchairs, chairs and poufs.
Placing accessories, as coffee tables and side tables, will make your space feel more functional, so you can put your coffee or books. Everything will feel more organised.
Speaking of organisation, why not go for furniture solutions with storage? Our Avery Pouf is the perfect choice for that, as you combine a side table, storage space and a pouf – all in one piece. Chick here if you want to know more about Avery.
When it comes to lighting, allowing the outdoors in will make your space feel lighter and cosier. We favour natural lighting as it has the ability to bring a smooth atmosphere and it can look stunning in every kind of decoration.
It is proven by experts that natural lighting is important not just because of its beauty, but it also stimulates productivity, reduces stress and anxiety levels and promotes better sleep.
These are four types of lighting that you should keep in mind when considering lighting:
- Ambient lighting
- Task lighting
- Accent lighting
- Decorative lighting
Make sure you get great lighting, as it creates depth and height and draws attention to your striking areas. Playing between light and shade can transform the space, as it can make it more comfortable or dramatic, adding vast interest to each room.
One of the main aspects that affect the room’s mood is, surely, its colour scheme.
Colours can influence your perception of temperature and time, our decisions, and our performance during your day. Due to this, you may want to choose them wisely to ensure you a relaxing retreat.
Neutrals are the safest option for everybody and every style, especially when your mood gets easily affected by the decor and organization of a space. They give us the sensation of calmness and are easy to update when you get bored.
On the other side, pastels are subtle but powerful, as they bring sophistication to the room. They are the type of colours that you won’t get tired of very easily and, if you do, just mix it with a bold colour. They have an anger-relief power and represent peace and balance.
Don’t underestimate the power of all these elements combined. They will assure you harmony, wether you’re designign a living room or a bedroom.
We are curious about the aspects would you add into a space to give it comfort. Let us know in the comment section!
