Accessorising the kitchens and bathrooms you design can impact dramatically on both the look and feel of the space. Get it right and accessories can bring the room to life, adding character, making it look realistic and giving it that all important wow factor. Here are six tips from 2020’s MD, Craig Rothwell for accessorising a room.
1. Green fingers
Adding a plant to your designs instantly gives that homely feel and, as an added bonus, can really make your lighting scheme come to life.
They creat realistic shadows on the floor, cabinets and walls when placed in front of a window.
2. Picture this
Placing pictures or other wall artefacts on blank walls help to lift the design and bring plain spaces to life.
You can even use 2020 Fusion to create bespoke pictures, personal to the household you are designing for, by incorporating digital images of the children or the family pet!
What better way to make them feel a personal connection to the space and more likely to buy?
3. Mirror, mirror on the wall…
A mirror is a designer’s secret weapon.
Far from simply being a practical object in which to check your appearance, a mirror can be used to amplify light, add drama, create interesting reflections and frame views.
Mirrors add light and depth to the room interior. So if you are designing a room which has a small window, place a mirror opposite or next it to increase the amount of natural light cast into the room.
A mirror will harness any daylight possible so the bigger the mirror, the brighter the space.
If you are designing an awkward space such as a room with a small gap or a sloping ceiling a mirror can be used to either enhance the space or draw attention away from it.
And, if the room you are designing is small, adding a mirror will expand the space in an instant.
4. Bottled up
The finishing touches make all the difference to your design but they can also enhance other aspects of your render.
In 2020 Fusion you can change the angle and direction of the sun to change the mood of the room and add realistic shadows from window blinds and carefully placed room decoration such as a plant or egg basket.
Plus, it’s a great idea to include strategically placed bottles of white wine on the counter as the sunlight looks great passing through the bottles!
