Designing a room is never an isolated project to carry on. Usually, before thinking about home design, we need to look at it’s surrounding. The same concept is still valid when our project is to design a full home. Every room needs to have its distinctive traits, but it needs to fit in a wider space made by other rooms.

 

 

When you think of a new home you need to imagine the whole space with a particular design then envision how this can cohesively flow throughout the house. To help you with this thought process we have outlined some design elements below.

 

 

Paint

A simple and easy way to create a cohesive look in your home is to use a consistent paint colour on the walls for connecting one room to the other. You don’t need to use the same colour to each room; instead, you can select a colour and use its slightly different tones from one room to the next. In this way, you will visually connect all the rooms of the house with the colour of the walls.

Furniture

Pay attention to the colours and designs of stand out furniture in and ensure this style is emulated in the other rooms; in order to create a good flow, the furniture must work well together.

Accessories

Accessories are the less expensive way to introduce colours in your home and they can also easily be easily changed if they become tiresome. You can get away with using the same accessories in different rooms to aid the overall cohesion of your home – just make sure you display them with different layouts and complementary accessories

Flooring

Using the same kind of flooring when possible will create continuity to space, especially for large open space. Using the same flooring in each room helps to make space looks larger as there are the interruptions due to the change of the flooring. This approach is especially popular for homeowners who want to please the eye by creating a light and airy setting.
