TOP 5 things you don’t know about interior design

Interior design is both an art and a science. From the choice of colours to lighting, everything can affect the atmosphere of a home. That’s why we’ve put together a list of important things related to interior design that you may never have heard of.

Colour affects us more than we think.

There are many articles on the psychology of colours, and with good reason: different colours and tones can have a definite effect on our emotions and moods. Blue decreases appetite and orange is supposed to be the best colour for concentration and productivity. It is also advisable to avoid yellow when painting your baby’s room. Although it is cheerful and warm, it has been shown to make babies more prone to cry! It is not ideal for the first few months. 😊

A nice view out the window can ease the pain…

Studies in hospitals have shown that patients need much less pain medication and can recover more quickly when they can see the scenery through the window. Access to videos of nature – forests, waterfalls and oceans – has also helped reduce pain, thanks to the relaxing effect it has.

 

Lighting can affect your mental health

Too much or too little light disrupts the natural sleep cycle, which can lead to stress and lack of sleep, both of which weaken the immune system. Good lighting in your home throughout the day promotes sleep and makes you happier.

 

Your sofa receives many more visitors than you can imagine!

Over its lifetime, an average couch will accommodate about 782 visitors and will experience 1,663 fairly mind-boggling spills – from tea and coffee to chunks of food! The best thing is to choose a material that will stand the test of time.

The industrial kitchen style is the most popular among young homeowners.

While most kitchen projects are currently done in a contemporary style, homeowners aged 25 to 34 are six times more likely to covet an industrial-style kitchen than those aged 54 and over. Younger people prefer industrial elements such as exposed brick and recycled wood elements, suggesting a growing trend that shows no signs of abating.
