10 Ways To Add Texture To Your Home's Design

Updated: Aug 27, 2023

Spaces in your home can seem boring or feel "off" without all the design elements present. A professional interior designer knows that texture is an important piece of any interior design, and your home is no exception! Incorporating textures into a space can help to bring it to life and make it feel more interesting, lived in, warm, cozy, etc. Here are 10 ways to incorporate textures into your home's interior design:

Add an Area Rug.

Adding a rug in a fun texture, pattern, or with fringe is a super easy way to add texture, and thus dimension, to your space. Layering rugs over one another can add even more!

Add Wallpaper.

Wallpaper is a great way to add texture to a room. It can be used to create a bold statement or to simply add a subtle texture. Most people think of wallpaper as a way to bring in different patterns or color, but there are many textured wallpapers. A woven wallpaper is also a great way to stand out without being too bold.

Choose the Right Furniture.

Choosing furniture with interesting textures can help to create an interesting and inviting space. Leather or velvet furniture pieces can add a luxe feel to a room. Tons of options exist when it comes to material and upholstery. If you’re looking to incorporate texture on a smaller scale, find a love seat with metal stud details!

Incorporate Textured Fabrics.

Textured fabrics can be used for upholstery, curtains, throw pillows, throw blankets, and other fabrics throughout a room. Adding texture to these fabrics can help bring dimension and interest to a space.

Use Tons of Baskets.

Bring baskets into your design for a two-fold benefit. They are usually made of woven materials or textured fabric, adding dimension, and they also add functional places to neatly and beautifully store items in your home.

Incorporate Natural Elements.

Natural elements such as wood, stone, or greenery (whether real or faux) can help to add texture and depth to a space.

Choose Textured Accessories.

Accessories such as vases, sculptures, and decor can add the final touch of something missing to a room. These can be made of metal, wood, fabric, rope, or anything you can find! Stores like HomeGoods and Target are great for finding accessories like these.

Incorporate Textured Lighting.

Lighting fixtures with interesting textures can help to add a unique touch to a space. There are so many options available in a range of metal finishes and different materials to bring a dose of texture to your space.

Incorporate Textured Wall Art.

Textured wall art, like macrame hangings or tapestries, can add a unique touch to a room. It can be used to create a focal point or simply add depth and interest to a room.

Choose The Right Window Treatments.

Window treatments with interesting textures can help to add dimension and interest to a space. Curtains create endless possibilities for incorporating new fabrics and textures into your space.

Bonus Tip: Add Texture With Tile.

Bringing texture into your kitchen or bathroom can be difficult. We tend to want to keep these areas of our home clean and free of surfaces that are difficult to wipe clean. One solution is finding fun tile details to add! Pillowed subway tiles can be a subtle way to incorporate texture, while others can have a raised detail effect for a more obvious textured appearance. Even those with a simple pattern will bring a little bit of texture detail to your home.

Using textures in your home can help to add depth, interest, and warmth to any space. Incorporating the right textures can help to take a room from dull to vibrant and inviting!
