10 Ways: To Add Texture And Layers To Your Coastal Design

An important but overlooked component of interior design is texture. You can have the most beautiful design in the world, but if it strikes the same visual tone throughout, it will feel flat. Here are 10 ways you can add texture to your home.

1. Color Tones. Decorating a room in all the same tone is a wasted opportunity. Using only one shade of a color looks flat; choose two or preferably three and mix them between rugs, furniture and paint to still achieve a monotone look. 

2. Accent wall. Wallpapering or painting an accent wall a different color will add dimension and texture to the room without being overpowering.

 

3. Glazing. Adding a glaze to paint on the wall adds automatic texture and gives off a subtle glow when light hits it. Glaze also reflects the natural lighting in the room, creating a warmer effect.

4. Emphasize the ceiling. The ceiling is an important fifth wall in a room, paint it an interesting color, to give the room a textured feel. Using complementary color or shade, like a lighter gray ceiling with medium gray on the walls. A lighter shade on the ceiling can often make it feel higher.
5. Mix textures in your fabrics. When it comes to fabrics don't use the same texture. For example, If you have pillows on the sofa in the same color family make sure they're not all the same fabric or print. Use a variety of textures and prints to automatically add interest to the entire space.

6. Window treatments. Dressing your windows with fabric or woven blinds creates layers and texture while giving the space a finished look.

7. Area rugs. An area rug instantly defines a space. Natural wood flooring is always beautiful, but looks far better with the layered, textured effect an area rug gives.

8. Weathered Wood. W Mixing in weathered coastal furniture and decor adds a natural element making it a simple way to add texture. Whether it's a reclaimed wood dining table or a great piece of driftwood displayed on the wall, wood is an effortless representation of texture. 

9. Layer lighting. Having overhead lighting, , task lighting and soft tabletop lighting adds dimension to your space. Light casts shadows and adds brightness, creating layers and texture.

10. Mirrors. Hanging a will reflect and cast light in a room defining existing textures and creating new. Mirrors also create the illusion of a bigger space, giving you more reasons to add a great mirror to your space.
