Textured Walls Add the Sensation of Touch

If you are looking for a way to improve on the interior design of your space, why not make things a bit more complex by adding in the sensation of touch. Textured walls are increasingly becoming popular for this phenomenon and there are many different options for adding drama in to your space. Here are some tips on how to incorporate texture into your interior design without going overboard.

Focus on Enhancing Not Overpowering

If you are trying to figure out what is the best way to use texture in your space, it is important to think simple. Adding too much texture to a room could destroy the surreal mood of the room that you are trying to create. Worse, you could even end up destroying the contrast of the different elements of the room by failing to use texture sparingly. 

If you are wondering where the best places in your room would be to use texture, try to use texture to create or enhance a focal point of the room. Enhancing a fireplace with texture can add a dramatic look and will also offer a lot of exciting shadows and colours when the fireplace is in use. You can also use texture on an accent wall instead of artwork. Additional, such as a Chinese alter table or decorative vase can create a dramatic look.


By choosing a colour that is just slightly different, the texture will create a very dramatic lookFor example, paint the textured wall yellow in a beige or cream room, use rose pink or even gold in a rust-painted room, lilac against pale blue also works. Make sure that your chosen colour does not compromise any works of art you want to display.


Decorative textures come in a variety of materials in order to create a specific feel. For more traditional designs, opting for a material such as plaster can offer the slight addition that you are looking for. In contrast, a texture made from 3-D printed panels can offer a more modern look for your space. 

When it comes to selecting a texture for your space, the choices may seem endless. A qualified interior designer could help to make this process go more smoothly.
