Texture can add depth, interest, and a sense of personality to a space, transforming a house into a warm and inviting home. We have a few tips on how to incorporate texture into your new home.

Embrace Natural Elements

Natural elements such as wood, stone, and plants bring a sense of warmth and authenticity to any space.  We play with this in a few of our display homes, check out our recent Gladstone Grandeur where our interior design inspiration is West Australian Comfort, which utilises a lot of natural wood and greens.   Bringing in the natural elements of wood, stone accent walls, or a lush indoor garden to connect your home with nature. These elements not only add texture but also create a calming and inviting atmosphere.

Play with Fabrics

Soft furnishings like cushions, throws, and rugs are an easy way to introduce texture into your home. Opt for fabrics with different textures such as velvet, wool, or faux fur to add depth and visual interest. Layering different textures adds warmth and cosiness, making your home feel more inviting and comfortable. We love to throw extra cushions in our homes to create an extra cosy feel.

Experiment with Wall Treatments

Don’t limit texture to just furnishings; consider experimenting with wall treatments as well. Textured wallpaper, exposed brick, or decorative moulding can add character and dimension to any room. Whether you prefer a subtle texture or a bold statement, there are endless options to suit your style and preferences.

Pay Attention to Lighting

Lighting plays a crucial role in highlighting texture and creating ambience. Use a combination of ambient, task, and accent lighting to illuminate different textures and create depth in your home. Consider adding wall sconces to highlight textured walls or pendant lights to accentuate architectural details. Proper lighting not only enhances texture but also sets the mood and atmosphere of your space.

Incorporate Art and Décor

We love to see clients add in their art to make their house a home! Adding in Artwork and décor items can also bring in another element of texture to your home. Look for pieces with interesting textures such as woven wall hangings, ceramic vases, or sculptural accents. These items not only add visual interest but also reflect your personality and style, making your home feel unique and personal.

Don’t Forget the Exterior

Texture isn’t limited to the interior of your home; it’s equally important to consider the exterior. Incorporate textured materials like stone cladding, wood siding, or decorative stucco to add curb appeal and character to your home’s facade. Landscaping with a variety of plants and textures further enhances the overall aesthetic and creates a welcoming first impression. With New Gen there are various styles to choose from that can tailor to your own personal taste and style.

Adding texture to your new build is a simple yet effective way to infuse personality and warmth into your home. By mixing materials, embracing natural elements, playing with fabrics, experimenting with wall treatments, paying attention to lighting, incorporating art and décor, and considering the exterior, you can create a space that is not only visually stunning but also feels like a true reflection of you and your family. So go ahead, get creative, and make your house a home with texture!
