How To Elegantly Add Texture to Any Room

There are several reasons why adding texture to a room can be aesthetically appealing. Texture helps to set the tone of a space, making it unique and inviting. But what exactly does adding texture to a room look like?


The answer is very broad. From furniture and textiles to objects and finishes, there is a wide range of ways you can elegantly add texture to any space. However, there is a balance that should be struck. If there is too little texture, space can feel unfinished or uninviting. But if a space has too much texture, it can feel cluttered and chaotic.


3 Ways to Elegantly Add Texture to Any Room

When it comes to adding texture to a room, it is all about the details. The following are three ways you can elegantly add texture to any space.


#1: Mix & match your textiles

Textiles are a simple yet effective way to add rich texture to a space. The key is to mix and match them. Textiles to consider mixing and matching include:

  • Area or accent rugs

  • Window treatments

  • Throw pillows

  • Blankets

  • Furniture upholstery

Evaluate what fabrics and materials you want to use for each textile. Perhaps you can try contrasting leather and velvet materials or silk and linen fabrics.


#2: Have fun with the finishes and materials

When you are designing a custom home or renovating a few spaces in your current home, you have plenty of opportunities to create lasting texture with your finishes and materials. You don’t have to stick with a pristine white wall.


You may want to think back to the 1950s and install a textured wall panel or even a fun wallpaper along an accent wall. Contrast your cabinetry, pulls, and countertop colors and materials. You may even ask your builder to leave a beam or two exposed or install faux beams.
