by | May 20, 2022 | blog page, Home Improvement

Sprucing up home interior design might be a hobby for some homeowners. To others, home interior designing is a necessity as part of repair or renovation. And then some do home interior designing for beautification purposes, as a way to optimize their room space, play with the lights and colors to suit the owner’s personality. One Handy Haole offers affordable handyman services, from home repair to home improvement, including drywall/texturing services in Maui Island, Hawaii. There are a lot of ways to liven up the interior of a house, and some of these include the installation of drywall or wall texturing and texturing arrangements.

Sounds pretty simple, doesn’t it? Surprisingly, the type of drywall, wall texture, and texturing can actually enhance or add to a room’s aesthetic appeal. It’s not just the ordinary, plain smooth type of wood or board installed or the simplistic arrangement of furniture for the sake of functionality. There are several wall texture designs and styles of texturing to choose from that add that personalized touch-up to the home interior; monotony shouldn’t be a problem, at any rate. 

Common Types of Wall Texture

Comb Texture

The comb texture is one of the most commonly used wall texture patterns. Resembling like having gone through a fine-tooth comb, this technique recreates lines of different shapes and widths done in the drywall compound. A simplistic approach but very appealing and elegant, creating a comb-like look needs a drywall compound, a trowel, and a roller.

Slap Brush Texture   

This wall texture pattern is made with a random design of thin lines that gives off that odd yet unique and stylish appeal. This technique requires a drywall compound, a roller, and a double crows foot drywall texture brush for that modern abstract quality. Being abstract, there isn’t any needed pattern to follow in this texture technique, so the homeowner or the installer can have a go in twisting angles at every slap of the brush. 

Popcorn Texture

The popcorn texture is a classic mainstay from the 70s and a crowd favorite as a choice for wall texturing up to now. This uneven wall textured surface is famous for its protruding, stony, knob-like texture. It’s the best choice for covering up any signs of wall or ceiling repairs or any other wall imperfections. It’s also capable of reducing the noise coming from the outside. Easy and affordable, the technique requires an air compressor, a hopper gun, and a mix of drywall mud and polystyrene. 

Playing it up with Texturing

In interior design, the texture is all about the arrangement of objects in the external surface space to accomplish the desired goal for the look and feel of the space. How objects are arranged, for instance, within a living room area can determine if it will give off that warm and homey atmosphere the owner is after or will give off the exact opposite. A straightforward arrangement of a rug, a chair, or a table has a significant contributing impact to the look and feel of the entire room. In the world of interior design, why does texture needs to be considered greatly?

Provides Room Balance

A play in contrast in design is essential to achieve that balanced look. Use materials of different textures, sizes, shapes, and colors, and place them evenly across the room two or three at a time. Try not to overwhelm the space by adding more than three pieces of furniture or material in one area, creating a more confused and chaotic look. Another value-added benefit to contrasting materials is that it helps to avoid the materials from getting blended in too much that it almost creates camouflage.  

Getting Creative with Wall Textured Colors

The color of the walls has a significant impact on the look and feel that the homeowner is going for, including the room balance. Light-colored walls create a comfortable and wider feel atmosphere and a good shade for incorporating Zen-like artworks. Dark colors give off a cozy, somewhat dramatic atmosphere and even at times add a touch of elegance.   

Appealing with Accessories

Accessories are more than just the ordinary bric-a-brac miscellaneous objects. Given that some of the accessories found in a living room have sentimental value, accessories are very useful for livening up a room or adding to the room’s aesthetic appeal. Apart from being functional in nature, accessories also bring together the whole design of a room, and they’re also objects that can help create balance through contrast. For instance, cushions add softness and warmth to hard surfaces. A vintage-designed bookstand can create that warmth and contrast in a somewhat plain-colored room.    Home interior designs are representative of the homeowner and their personality.

There are many ways and methods to choose from when designing a home. Whether it is for home improvement or home repair purposes, knowing the right design and material is the first step, and knowing which functions best and fits the homeowner’s lifestyle is equally essential.
