Texture and Touch

People see texture and more often than not want to touch it also. For example, fabrics are discussed in terms of how they look and feel. Paint textures are described in terms of what the paint feels like to touch, for example satin, matte and eggshell.

The sheen of a satin paint makes it appear lighter in weight than a matte finish that seems heavier and earthier. Texture is also important on the floor. A wooden floor can be a lot earthier than a shiny marble floor.

The following are some guidelines to follow when considering texture in a space.
  1. Use a fine texture on the ceiling so it appears light.

  2. Use a medium texture on walls so they appear supportive.

  3. Use a heavier look on the floor so it appears sturdy.
