Interior Decoration Ideas for Drawing Room

 


The space matters a lot while decorating any room like bedroom, drawing room etc. Before decorating and furnishing your Drawing room, decide how much time your family members spend there. If you have less space, you need more care to furnish it. If you have more space, you can use the space more efficiently. Ornamental pieces such as sculptures, wall hanging, flowers and paintings add to the beauty of the room. Also you can put fresh flowers into vase any where besides phone table or over dining table. Mirror can be an additional ornament to the Drawing room.

Drawing Room Furniture

The basic decorative and entertaining articles of drawing room furniture are chairs, sofas, tables etc. The shape of room expresses layout of the furniture. Small room needs small furniture to keep all things which saves space. 

When there is large gathering of guests at any function, to minimize problem of space during late hours, you can use sofa cum bed which serves both the purposes, one of sofa and the other of bed in emergency. If there is less space, use folding furniture and furniture on wheels which can be pulled only when it is in required.

Color your Drawing Room

Color plays a dominant role in decorating a Drawing room. Light color makes the room look larger and spacious. For small rooms, use light colors such as white or cream as they are most obvious choices for wall. The room would look smaller if there are stronger colors. However, you can use warm colors for some areas of the room. Thus color should be selected carefully.

Paint for Drawing Room Interior

Now a days contemporary colors are more in demand because they have both light and bright colors and add brightness to the Drawing room. You can use light colors like versatile white which is likely to please you and you can also try brighter shades such as red and green. You can go for an option of two color schemes taking first color at the center and the second color to give sparkling effect on the first. If the location of your Drawing room is sun facing, use cool colors like ocean blue or sea green. If the location of your Drawing room is non-sun facing and you want to get warmth in winters, go for bright shades like yellow and orange to diminish the dullness.

Drawing Room Curtains

The curtains provide traditional and artistic look to the drawing room. The designs of curtains depend on windows, doors, colors of the walls and decoration of the drawing room. Cotton and silk are the best fabrics for curtains and are liked by everyone. Use lining curtains are durable and protect us from outside weather. Use fancy tieback that makes the curtains more attractive. Change curtains’ pole and use swag and valance curtains.

Drawing Room Flooring

Three types of flooring in your Drawing room such as ceramic tile flooring, wooden flooring, and white marble flooring are suitable for drawing room. Ceramic tile flooring is extremely strong, easy to clean, bacteria free, light in weight, scratch resistant, fire proof and stain free. The tiles are good insulators. Ceramic tile flooring is salt glazed that is why it’s anti-slippery.

Wooden flooring is always recommended for its craftsmanship. It is versatile, durable, noiseless and long lasting if maintained properly.  It does not get hot in summer and doesn’t get cold in winter also.  It adds charm to the beauty of a Drawing room

White marble flooring adds to the beauty of the Drawing room. It is hard, dense and has long life. It is easy to clean; strong, long lasting and stain-free. It is bacteria-free as the joints are very thin.

Carpet in Drawing Room

Carpets add ornamental touch to the flooring of a Drawing room. These are usually selected according to the location of the place. If a carpet is well placed in drawing room, it works for long time though it’s less expensive. You can think about a stain resistant carpet if you have any kid. You can go for soft resilience carpets to avoid slippery.

Drawing Room Lighting

Before decorating drawing room interior you should consider apt lighting and plan how many activities are going to take place there. Never use central light because it creates shadow and glare. Combination of fluorescent or halogen lights provide lighting throughout the space. Showing sculptures with spot lighting gives an artistic look which enhances the warmth of drawing room. You can also consider general lighting for entertainment purposes such as watching television, task lighting for reading and accent light for art works. Pendant lights are fixed in the centre of the drawing room just as chandeliers light while up lights are fixed in darker corners of the drawing room.

Your photographs are extremely helpful to illustrate applications of design factors in articles (although this article had an incorrect photo inserted to depict a sleigh bed). However, most articles exhibit very poor grammar and sentence structure making it difficult at times to understand the thought the author is attempting to convey. It would improve your site tremendously to have someone with a master of the English language to proof-read articles before inclusion in your website.
