A carefully styled rug or mat can perfectly frame your bedroom and completely transform the look and feel of the room. Play with texture in a plain bedroom, rugs also keep your feet toasty warm in the morning. A shag rug, seagrass mat or woven runner can all compliment your bedroom nicely, but be careful not to overwhelm your bedroom with textures. If you have a highly textured bed and other bedroom décor, a plainer rug will serve to compliment your room without confusing your textures together.

Textured Home Décor Accessories

Your home décor accessories can be used as an opportunity to display many different textures in a small space. Indoor plants are an excellent example, due to their many varieties and sizes. You can fill small or large bedroom spaces with a real or faux plant, and enjoy the health benefits that come with indoor plants, as well as the visual boost.

Bowls, trays and statuettes can be styled to suit any home decoration style and are also great ways to introduce small amounts of varying textures.

Add Depth With Wall Art And Photographs

Decorate the walls of your bedroom with framed wall art and precious photographs - it's a great way to add texture and depth to your room while also displaying precious memories. Frames can add colour and depth to your images, and you can try unusual techniques like creating a shadow box or a floating frame to display your art with depth.

For dramatic textures in paintings, look for impasto, oil or thick acrylic paintings that allow you to see the brushstrokes and peaks of the paint.

Pressed flowers, leaves and other natural textures are great for displaying as art and are perfect for displaying in a 3D setting.

How To Add Texture And Depth To Your Living Room

As the room you'll be spending most of your leisure time in, having interesting textures in your living room is a must! There are so many ways you can decorate your living room, and opportunities for adding texture and depth can be found in every corner of the space.

Cosy Blankets And Throws Add Instant Warmth

Not only do they make cosying up much more pleasant, but warm blankets and textured throws look fabulous when draped over your living room couch or recliner! Contrast your throws with the material and colour of your couch and any carpet that may be underneath - for example, if you have a smooth leather couch, a chunky knitted throw will contrast nicely. Conversely, if your couch had a more detailed finish like a patchwork or velvet design, then a smooth throw will add texture without clashing with that of your couch.

Quilts are also handy for throwing over a couch - use a textured quilt cover to add extra colour and softness to your seating.

Textured Cushions Add a Point of Interest

Whether they're for stabilising your back, clutching in a scary movie or supporting you as you nap, a few decorative cushions are always appreciated and are great ways to add pops of colour and texture to your living room. KOO textured cushions come in many stylish varieties like piped velvet, shag, faux fur, tufted and woven, making them easy to coordinate with your current furnishings. Be sure to contrast them with the textures of your lounge set, throws and rugs if applicable.

Homely Carpets And Rugs For Your Living Room

As an area that receives a lot of traffic, having a carpet or rug underfoot in the living room will be appreciated by many. Pop a fluffy rug under a glass coffee table, a circular jute mat in front of a smooth cotton sofa or a long woven runner in front of a leather couch set - make sure textures complement each other without clashing or overshadowing the other textures in the room.

Textured Home Décor Accessories To Impress

Your living room is the perfect space to display all sorts of home décor accessories like statuettes, plants, candles, wall art and more! You can create a mini-jungle in the corner using large faux plants or add a few pops of colour with any of KOO's gorgeous flower stems. Plants create texture, colour and interest in any room, and KOO's artificial plants are realistic enough to make anyone believe you've got a green thumb.

Indoor candles create visual interest with their differing heights, colours and shapes, especially when lit! Add additional texture with a candle holder to make your chosen candle more of a centrepiece.

Bordered wall art and framed photos can add texture to your walls, while also creating points of interest around the room. Floating frames and shadowbox-style displays create depth and texture on the walls, but a bold, traditional-style frame can also be used for a more subtle effect.
