How to Add Dimension to a Room

Adding dimension or exciting features to a room not only enhances its overall style and aesthetic but also makes the space more inviting. But how exactly is it done? You can include certain color schemes, fabrics, and textures in an area to give it more depth and intrigue.

For a closer look at how to add dimension to a room, here are five tips:

  1. Use Area Rugs – One of the easiest ways to add dimension to a room is by rolling out an area rug. Not only do area rugs allow you to introduce new colors, patterns, and textures to your design, they establish a focal point that defines the space they are in, making it more welcoming. For even more depth — and a truly custom feel — consider layering two area rugs. Picture a natural fiber rug under one with a more eclectic, colorful pattern. The stylization, intrigue, and subsequent dimension will be unmatched.
  2. Mix Mediums – When selecting furniture, opt for pieces made of mixed mediums. Think coffee tables, side tables, or entertainment stands made from a blend of raw wood and shining metals. Inserting these elements, especially those that mix warm and cool tones and natural and manufactured materials, is a tried and true way to add visual interest to your design.
  3. Create An Accent Wall – Accent walls come in many shapes and forms. One of the most simple ways to create a feature wall is to paint one wall in a different shade than the rest of the room. While this easy update can certainly enhance a space, a textured accent wall can add even more dimension. You can achieve this look using textured wallpaper or creating different shapes or sections of the wall with wood. These techniques give the wall a 3D element and become an instant focal point. 
  4. Incorporate A Statement Color – A neutral color palette with small pops of color can keep your focus in a room without it feeling empty. You can add color through textiles like throw pillows, blankets, and area rugs or stylized elements like wall art, signage, and pottery. No matter how you incorporate color, the unexpected pops will surely grab the attention of whoever enters the room.
  5. Add More Texture- Just like new colors and patterns add dimension to your design, new textures do the same. One of the easiest, most affordable ways to do this is by staging throw pillows in various fabrics, like thick knits, velvet, and faux fur, on your couch. When you do this, the room becomes warmer and more welcoming. So if you think something will make a room feel cozier, it will likely give it more dimension too.
