7 Proofs That Creative Thinking Is A Key To All Interior Design Problems

(Guest Writer: Frank Hamilton)

Interior design, like any other area of design, is impossible without creativity. Yes, of course, each of the design areas has its own rules and canons, which are used by everyone for maximum efficiency. But it is the creative component that determines the uniqueness of each created interior.

Therefore, in this article, we decided to highlight the importance of creative thinking in interior design and provide seven proofs that it is possible to solve almost any problems in designing a space due to non-standard approaches.

1. Creative Thinking Makes Your Interior Design Truly Outstanding

Do you know what distinguishes a creative interior designer from non-creative? The latter works according to clearly established rules. And the result may be close to ideal in terms of comfort, functionality, and visual perception.

But in this case, interior design will lack individuality, uniqueness, customization, as it is fashionable to say now.

And it is possible to achieve maximum originality only by applying the skills of creative thinking. If the designers did not use them, then we would live in absolutely identical apartments.

2. Creative Thinking Takes Less Space for More Efficiency

A great example of this approach is the design of Japanese apartments. Since the Japanese have difficulties with living space (there are a lot of people, and the living area is fabulously expensive), they have to adapt to the available spatial resources.

Japanese apartments have a small area. They are not divided into separate rooms (perhaps with the exception of the bathroom) but are divided into zones. This is the result of the creative approach of Japanese designers when they needed to give maximum functionality with a minimum of free space.

This approach works not only in Japan - you can always use a minimum of space with maximum efficiency, regardless of the location of the house or apartment. Plus, choose multi-functional furniture; for example, a sofa, which when unfolded, turns into several berths.

Therefore, if you come across a similar order, when you need to implement several rooms with a limited area, think about this method and apply additional creative ideas.

3. Creative Thinking Saves Costs

This is one of the most common mistakes of novice interior designers - they try to implement outstanding ideas but forgot about the fact that some items may be too expensive.

In fact, any idea can be implemented in an even more reasonable way - for this, it is enough to combine common sense with a creative approach. And of course, always follow the budget and the estimate discussed with the customer.

Creative thinking helps to select or create a design element or furniture that does not lose its function, is visually attractive, fits into the overall style and idea of the interior, plus it has a reasonable price at the same time.

4. Creative Thinking Meets More Interior Expectations with Just One Tool

To some extent, it is also about the possibility of saving money and fitting into the budget when designing the interior, while simultaneously satisfying all customer requests.

For example, one lamp can serve as the main lighting source as well as have additional branches with lamps for table and night lighting. As a result, the client receives immediately the three functions he needs by paying only for one thing.

By analogy, light curtains perform not only an aesthetic function but also make the room brighter. A high cornice visually raises the ceiling level, and the built-in fireplace is not only a design element but also a source of heat.

5. Creative Thinking Conjures Up Ideas That Are Both Beautiful and Useful

In fact, creativity is good only when creative impulses do not overshadow the arguments of common sense. Therefore, it is important to maintain a reasonable balance - creative design should remain functional.

And it is a creativity that makes it possible to provide the ordinary thing with useful functions, plus not to deprive it of its attractiveness and individual style.

Have not you forgotten the example of a lamp that meets three needs at once? If, in addition to the functionality, this lamp is still beautiful and fits into the style of the room, then the designer's task will be solved, thanks to creative thinking as well.

6. Creative Thinking Implements New Ideas Without Tossing What Was Already Made

This is a very common and vital situation - the brief is filled up, all wishes and ideas are discussed, the project is drawn, furniture and details are ordered, the builders have already started decorating the walls, floor and ceiling and here...

And then the customer decides to add something else, or maybe even decides to completely redraw the entire design. Of course, it will be unreasonable to destroy the result of your work, so that the final result 100% meets both the old and new requirements of the customer.

Therefore, it is necessary to apply creative thinking and find approaches that at the same time will not destroy everything that has already been done and thought out, plus they will be in harmony with new requests.

This can be difficult, especially if the customer decides to completely review the whole concept. However, if you look at things creatively, sometimes one detail can change the whole style, and you don’t have to start all over again.

One small transformation of the existing result will be enough, and then, of course, you will have to seek new approaches in accordance with new requests and expectations.

7. Creative Thinking Helps Transform the Disadvantages of a Room into Its Benefits

Remember, we gave an example of Japanese interior designs? This example can also be applied in this case. But it’s also possible to go further and try to turn the disadvantages of the premises into its advantages due to creative thinking.

For example, if a room has insufficient natural lighting, then it is possible to visually lighten it due to the light colours of the walls.

If the room has a low ceiling, this can be visually corrected by placing a cornice under the ceiling. With the addition of light and flowing curtains, these will also help lighten the room and make it look more spacious.

Conclusion

So, creativity is the key to creating interesting, functional and comfortable interior designs. However, it would be wrong to forget about the rules and techniques that have been tested over the years. These, when combined with the creative approach, give even more cool results.
