Using geometric shapes can create a dynamic space in a home, give an interior space a personality and add character. They can either create a bold, sophisticated and modern look or soften a space with the use of softer, more elaborate type patterns. Take a look at some popular shapes currently being experimented with by Bathroom Butler.
This zigzag pattern has been used for decades to indicate rank in the military (specifically the English Arms) and is a pattern which is often used in the architectural, and interior design space. Chevron patterns can be used on walls, floors or with accessory items that create powerful, sophisticated spaces that can easily be integrated with classic styles.
The fish scale shape is very on trend for 2018 as designers use the outdoors to inspire indoor design. This aquatic trend brings the soothing, oceanic movement into any space with the repetitive, overlapping pattern reminiscent of rolling waves. This unique shape is particularly eye-catching and provides designers with an extremely versatile décor aspect that can be brought in through ceramic tiles, wallpaper and textures.
The hexagon shape boasts numerous meanings and has proven popular through many different eras of our time. The first, and possibly most obvious is the honeycomb, by which this shape is also known. This shape became really popular in the 1960s from an interior design perspective and continues to dominate design trends of the modern day.
Geometric shapes and lines
Triangles, circles, squares, to name a few, are other common shapes associated with geometry. These work quite well in an interior space to transform dreary to dynamic, boring to bold and featureless to fun. Using different patterns next to one another is also another bold design choice. However, to allow the space to flow impeccably, remember to repeat the patterns or select colours that link the patterns together.
