Texture in Interior Design

Incorporating texture in the interior design of our homes can provide for a multi-sensory experience and enhance the overall ambience of the space. Living spaces can be transformed by engaging the sense of touch, integrating elements that are chosen for their texture, materiality and the physical and emotional senses they evoke. These play a crucial role in making the home feel more inviting and personalised.


The inclusion of elements that invite touch, such as soft fabrics, textured surfaces, or natural materials, homeowners can create a more immersive and inviting environment. This multi-sensory approach enhances the ambience of the space, making it more comfortable, visually appealing, and enjoyable to inhabit.


Tactile touches can be incorporated into your living spaces in various ways, each adding a unique dimension to the space. Textured wall coverings, such as wallpaper or applying techniques such as Microcement or polished plaster adds depth and visual interest to walls. Such textures can range from subtle to dramatic, transforming a once plain wall into a focal point of the room. Introducing natural materials such as timber flooring, stone cladded and interior facebrick walls provides character, bringing a sense of the outdoors into the home, fostering a connection to nature.


Layering soft furnishings and woven textiles, such as boucle furniture, plush rugs, knitted throws and cushions made from velvets and linens, enhance comfort and coziness to any room. These textiles invite touch and create a sense of relaxation. Handmade tiles to wet areas, textured artwork and decorative accents, such as ceramic pottery bring a touch of craftsmanship and authenticity to any interior. Textured cabinetry also provides a tactile experience, inviting touch and interaction. Running your fingers over a smooth surface of honed marble of the grain of timber veneers can enhance the sensory experience and create a deeper connection with the space.


Window treatments, such as curtains and sheers made from fabric with different textures and weaves are another element to consider to transform your interior. These can have significant impact on the aesthetic appeal of the space, enhancing the overall experience for the end user.
