While texture may play a supporting role to the function of the space, it is no less vital to a designs success. Instead of examples of texture above, picture trying to get comfortable on a seating set made of granite. Always consider how texture will elevate the overall experience of your design. Odds are, if you have been hanging around design websites for a while, you have heard the term visual weight getting thrown around a lot.
All that means is that an object, or space as a whole, has the ability to draw attention to itself. A healthy dose of texture will makes sure that is not a problem. Remember how when we talked about color theory, we discussed how using a warm or cool color can effect how a space feels? Texture works in a similar way. Rough textures are more likely to make a space feel intimate and grounded while smooth textures bring a sleeker more aloof tone to the room.
