Balancing form and function can be a delicate balance in a design project. While our customers want an aesthetically appealing space, they also want a space that exudes functionality. To create the balance between an aesthetically appealing space and a functional space, we must strive for excellence and creativity. Light is more popular in interior design because although it is incredibly important, many people still tend to ignore it.

This is often because it is quite difficult to determine what lighting actually does to a room. A large piece of furniture in a room that is too small to accommodate is obvious as it disturbs the environment, the light is a bit more subtle. Too much light and a room feels clinical, too little and feels small and cramped. The key is finding a balance.

This not only helps to highlight the aesthetics and style of a room, but also makes it a more pleasant place to be in general. You should also be aware of the quality of light that you bring into your home. After all, the soft, warm light that you would use in your bedroom is far less suitable for your kitchen, as it makes the room feel dirty and drab. What I help my clients is a certain level of realistic expectations about how their space works best for them.

Layering beautiful objects or using them to attract attention is a simple and very effective tool used in interior design. For any well-planned, well-designed, and well-balanced space; you must remember to balance form and function to get the perfect compliment. When you consider function, you always end up sacrificing a certain amount of home aesthetics. Trends in interior design, just like in fashion, are cyclical and are returning after a few years.

Form follows function is a theory and an architectural design concept that can be used to create varied designs. By making your interior design simple and functional, you can avoid the trap of creating rooms full of unimportant objects. I explain the facts about materials and their varying levels of maintenance to my customers so they can make an informed decision about what they want. James Veal and Christine Stucker have mastered this approach with their multidisciplinary architecture and interior design studio Stewart-Schafer.

A room that is arranged in such a way that no floor space is available appears much more cramped and untidy, whereas a room with more space appears lighter and more well-maintained. Often, an extra piece brings balance; sometimes an extra piece of furniture or work of art is just what the room needs for balance and beauty.
