7 Elements of Interior Design Series: Part 1 – Understanding ‘Space’.

In this 7-part series we explore the seven elements of interior design, starting with ‘Space’. Developing a basic understanding of the 7 elements of interior design as a real estate photographer assists you in easily identifying the elements (within an interior or exterior space) in which you can work with to create a more visually striking composition.

Space is the foundational aspect of any interior as it is simply the physical three-dimensional area between the length, width, and height of a room.

You should aim to achieve a balance between the positive and negative space within the room by having furniture and décor in the positive space and keeping a distance between them to create negative space.

The balance between negative and positive space avoids a feeling of ‘emptiness’ in one extreme and ‘over-cluttering’ in the other. You should consider the location of traffic paths within the room, and the size and height of the furniture when trying to achieve your desired outcome.

If you are going for a minimalist ‘feel’ you should have more negative space than positive and the opposite for a maximalist design.
