Function, mood, and personality are the 3 principles of interior design that should most often dictate your design choice.

Creating a well-balanced interior design is much easier said than done. Before you get started trying to throw your interior design together, it’s important that you know the principles of interior design. The following are the 3 principles of interior design that you should use to guide you:

  1. Function – Function should always be your number one priority. It doesn’t matter if it looks good if it’s not functional, after all. For example, the way your furniture is arranged and how you’ve lit a specific room are vital to the function of a space.
  2. Mood – The mood you create in any given room is going to have an effect on the mood of the people within the room. Use colors, style, texture and patterns in order to establish the right mood. The best way to start is with an inspiration piece and a basic theme.
  3. Personality – Without personality, your home will just feel like a stale display. Add accessories to your interior design, such as area rugs, pictures, throw pillows and more. Don’t be afraid to be whimsical with your choices and to add some unexpected details.
