12 Ways to Add Texture to A Room

Color, pattern and texture are important design elements to create a balanced look in a room. Texture adds dimensional interest and depth to a space. A room without any texture could look cold or sterile. Incorporating this particular visual interest into a room can bring the space to the next level. However, a room with overabundant texture could make the space feel too busy and overwhelmed. So, it’s important to create a balanced, harmonious space when combining the textured element with other design elements.
