Importance of Interior Decoration

Imagine the horror of stepping into a room that is not color coordinated, lacks style, and is randomly stuffed with furniture. One can never underestimate the importance of interior designing. Having said that we don’t mean to say that most people lack a sense of style; but an understanding of space utilization, color scheme, lighting and choosing the right furniture are important for creating a functional space. The basic objective of interior decoration and design is to create soothing functional spaces that look good.

A well designed interior doesn’t always have to be necessarily gaudy, but what it requires is comfort and ease of functioning for those who’ll live in that space.

Designers and decorators have to keep in mind important factors such as design basics in relation to requirement, concepts, patterns, aesthetics, available materials, cost, and other such important factors.

An important thing to keep in mind is that interior designing may not always be an expensive proposition, contrary to common perception. In fact a professional will always look around for stuff that is already available.

Difference between interior design and decoration

By definition Interior Design is “the art and science of understanding human behaviour to create functional spaces.”

Interior decoration on the other hand simply means “furnishing a room with nice things for a better look and ambience.”

The point in an interior designer can decorate but a decorator cannot design!

A good designer offers technical solutions to make a space functional. The process of designing has to be systematic process. Research, analysis and execution are of utmost importance. Designers understand the concept of spatial design and planning. Manipulating available space or reconfiguring an existing area forms an important part of designing. The basic idea is to create a functional space.

A good designer will always have long discussions with the set of people who’ll eventually use the space when done. Understanding the individuality of the owner/ user, requirement and cost helps. Decoration on the other hand is no big deal. It is all about using the right combination of furnishings (wall paper, curtains, paint etc.) and furniture.

A good designer will figure out the purpose of designing a particular room, home, workplace or space. The ultimate design should be such that the end user should feel satisfied. If a designer is working on designing a work space, then ease of moving around, placement of work tables, lighting, ergonomic concepts, utilization for storage etc. will play a crucial role. Choosing the central element always gives a focal point to any room. A good designer would do that. The other design elements then fall into place like that of a jigsaw puzzle. Aesthetics, also of course play an important role.
