Your goal when decorating should be to create a space that you don’t want to leave.

Add Texture to a Room with Modern Farmhouse Decor

To add texture to a room you should first determine the color scheme for the room that you are decorating.

Texture can be monochromatic color scheme or a mixture of colors.

If you are going for an all neutral theme, consider using various shades of neutrals to give your room a cozy feel.

Using the same color throughout will make your room look stark, so make sure to break up the color.

For example try to add black, ivory, cognac, navy, or green to break up an all gray room.

Read on to learn a few tricks to add texture to a room.

Wall Art and Frames

Woven art, laser cut, or metal art are also easy ways to add texture to a room.

Displaying a honeycomb picture frame or a wood frame will help you layer in more texture.

Here is my favorite modern farmhouse mirror that I purchased from Kirkland’s!

Add Books for Height

Stack books underneath a small succulent can bring in texture while also, increasing the height of the item on top of the book.

Decorating with books can help make small items really stand out by displaying decor on top of a couple books.

Rugs Easily Add Texture to a Room

An area rug with a textured design can allow you to mix in different colors that you might not typically use in a room.

If you are afraid of color this can be a good way to add color.

Then pick a few colors from the rug that you want to accent in your room with curtains, pillow, wall art, and more.

Modern Farmhouse Kitchen – Decorating with Textured Tile

Tile flooring or backsplash can bring a ton of texture to a room.

The color of the grout will determine how bold the tile will appear in a space.

If you are going for a softer look than a greige grout would be best.

A darker grout would look great, if you are going for a more dramatic look.

Grout can also compliment other colors in your space.

For example if a room has all black hardware and finishes then black grout would look great with a white backsplash.

Texture Brings Meaning

Textures not only bring meaning and layers to a room, but they just make it easier to decorate.

I used to struggle to make sense of home decor until I realized what a difference texturing can do for a room.

Out of all the decor in my home, I realized that anything with texture has stayed in the same place.

I find myself repurposing and moving things around my home that do not have texture because I am over the item.

Maybe its because the items without texture are boring or I just didn’t pick the right items for the space.

Texture is a timeless look, so you can’t go wrong with adding it to any space.

Well, expect for popcorn ceilings that is not timeless, so don’t add this type of texture to your room.
