How to create a harmonious interior

5 principles for creating a harmonious interior

Arranging your own apartment is pleasant, but not the easiest. In the process of creating an ideal interior, annoying thoughts always come: “Can I try this option?” Or “What if this color doesn’t suit my spirit?”. To get rid of the contradictions during the repair and go on the right path, you need to know the basic principles of the design of a harmonious space. They are the basis of any design project. Their benefits are obvious to everyone who has decided to independently equip their homes.

Principle 1. We determine the purpose of the room

The first step in creating a harmonious interior is to determine its functions. No expensive furniture or unusual decoration will make a room comfortable if its purpose is not defined. Why a particular room will serve and what style to choose for its design, decide based on the following criteria:
• Features of your daily routine, lifestyle, family traditions.
• The need for functional rooms: list the rooms that you need. Redevelopment of the apartment can add a convenient space for certain purposes (dressing room, study or relaxation area).
• Visual change of room parameters.
• Composition center. It is important to determine the dominant part of the room. The further arrangement of accents and decor will depend on the central element of the interior.

Principle 2. We think over the nature and mood of the interior

Before arranging the apartment, consider: what mood do you want to create in this room. If the goal is to make a bright, saturated interior, where you can gain strength, “energize” energy, then these are some design options.

Other design methods will help fill the atmosphere with calmness, ease and unobtrusiveness.

Having decided on the nature of the future interior, you can easily proceed to the choice of finishes, furniture, decor.
To illustrate the importance of this principle, we give an example in the search for a suitable version of glazing. Suppose that for apartment owners, the determining factor in a harmonious space is a warm room, where it is pleasant to spend time and relax from working days. Consequently, the nature of the future interior is laid-back, relaxing, calm.

What type of window systems is suitable for a particular case? With these questions we turn to specialists of the REHAU company. According to professionals, two versions of systems are suitable for “warm” interiors:
• Plastic windows. They isolate the room well and protect it from adverse weather events. Designs have a presentable appearance, which allows them to organically fit into the interior of any style.

There are many types of systems with different structures. The types of PVC windows are available on the page. Here you will find detailed information about the technical characteristics, advantages of each of the varieties of products and current prices are indicated. It will be useful to read to everyone who starts the repair.
For lovers of visually presented information, we recommend that you look at the sites of our partners in furniture and interiors

    Wood systems. A traditional type of glazing for connoisseurs of classics. Ideally fit into restrained interiors, add sophistication and harmony to them. They retain heat well and do not allow extraneous noise.

    Here they describe in detail the features of such structures, offer structured information (in the form of diagrams, diagrams, images) about each type of system.
    As you can see, having thought over the mood and functionality of the future interior, we significantly narrow the list of suitable options. And this applies not only to glazing, but also to other types of work necessary to create a cozy room.

Principle 3. Harmony = symmetry

Few would call an asymmetric room harmonious. If the interior elements are not correctly distributed, “balance” is violated and an imbalance occurs. Therefore, for square or rectangular rooms, the main thing is to precisely place all objects (furniture, appliances, etc.) around the entire perimeter, without creating overloads.

For owners of asymmetric rooms, we advise you to work on “alignment”. To do this, use the following design techniques:
• Find the main point (for example, a door, a fireplace, a mirror) and design the interior symmetrically to it;
• Vertical stripes help to stretch the room and get rid of the effect of "hanging ceiling".
• You can remove compositional inaccuracies using decorative elements. Hang on one of the walls a three-dimensional panel or picture, install a flower stand in one of the parts of the room.

Principle 4. Color defines the atmosphere

The selected color greatly affects the atmosphere of the interior. At this stage of design planning, the basic approaches to colorization should be carefully considered. There are many options for decorating the premises in various shades to suit any requirements of the owners. But there are general rules that you must rely on when choosing a color:
• The brighter the color of the subject, the smaller and finer it should be;
• The more bulky objects in one gamut, the more shades you will need to use for “dilution”;
• Complex textured materials are best painted in saturated colors;
• Colorful décor suitable for spacious rooms. For small rooms it is better to choose no more than 3 shades.

Principle 5. Harmony is made up of little things

When you design your apartment, it is important to remember: you create your own corner. Try to fill it with things that emphasize individuality, fill it with your energy.

But for what we love and value, it is necessary to find a suitable place. Otherwise, busting with trifles or incorrect layout will spoil previous achievements in creating a harmonious interior.

    Do not hang pictures too high. They organically fit into space when located at the level of a person’s eyes of medium height.
    To arrange figurines, postcards, vases and other small items, equip beautiful shelves. It will turn out not only to keep the house in order, but also to organize the space correctly.
    Add fresh flowers to the interior. They harmoniously fit into any room and have a beneficial effect on creating a pleasant atmosphere. Find a place for a beautiful bouquet on a coffee table, window sill or shelf.
