The use of patterns is an ideal technique to make your space pop and look less dull. Patterns come in different colours and shapes which makes it an exciting element to experiment with when decorating your interiors. Although mixing and matching patterns can get tricky sometimes, there is no harm in trying out what combinations work best for your space.

Flooring

There are numerous ways to decorate your flooring. First, you can opt to purchase rugs with patterns that match your interiors. This can be easily paired with plain couches and fixtures. Second, you can choose to use tiles that come in different colours and prints. These can break the monotony of plain tiles or cement.

Walls

To add style to you place, why not choose a wall panel you can decorate with patterns, whether using paint or wallpaper? After all, a plain wall is the perfect canvas for creative work.

Accent pieces

If you’re the type that can’t commit to a single pattern forever and is afraid of all the costs that will come with the change, don’t worry because you can still opt to purchase accent pieces such as vases, frames, or ottomans with patterns on them. These accent pieces are temporary and can be easily hidden or transferred if you no longer like the patterns.

Art work

Sometimes, patterns are not only found in house fixtures like tiles or curtains. Make a bold statement by purchasing paintings or other artwork that resemble abstract patterns to give your space a modern and stylish feel.
