5 important interior design principles

Some people might think that interior design is mostly subjective, however, it isn’t. Well, not all of it anyway.

There are definitely design principles that need to be adhered to in order for a project to come together cohesively. That’s not to say that personal flair doesn’t play a part, it’s just that spontaneity in any aspect such as colour or texture, needs to be grounded on a solid foundation of basic design understanding.

Here are 5 important interior design principles:

  • Balance. Both with symmetrical, asymmetrical and radial symmetry within a space.
  • Focal Point. A well-designed room always has, depending on the size of it, one or more focal points.
  • Details. Whether it’s colour, texture, scale or something else. The little things matter big time.
  • Rhythm. Repetition, progression and transition of lines and movement within a space.
  • Unity & Harmony. All the elements need to work together in a cohesive way to create the perfect space.

Design Clarity are experts at interior design and have offices in Sydney, Melbourne and London. Below are some of the projects they have recently worked on. If they whet your appetite, get in touch with them via email or phone (click here for their contact details).

  • The Kidstore. Design Clarity brought this vision to life with a complete unique branding identity and retail interior environment design.
  • SBlended Milkshakes. Using the white shake clouds as the main design feature, Design Clarity wanted the kiosk to be “floating”, inspired by a brand who doesn’t take itself too seriously.
  • Bankwest. The Design Clarity team worked closely with CBA Group Property to push the Bankwest brand even further than before, with zones for innovation and future-proofing.
