Why it matters, I think we can all agree on one thing: your home should be comfortable, right? But how do you define and recognize a comfortable space? Is it just about how plush your sofa is? Not just! It's also about how comfortable you feel when you are moving around or through the room. So no matter how fluffy your cushions are, your room should also feel comfortable when you're not sitting down. And this is where negative space comes in. Do the exercise and sit in your sofa for a minute but close your eyes. Does it feel nice? Probably! Now open your eyes. Do you feel as relaxed? Well chances are, if you have lots of things on the walls and lots of decorative pieces on the furniture, it won't feel quite as peaceful. By giving your brain lots of things to look at, you get it to work which goes against any feeling of relaxation.
In Interior Design, positive space is the space taken by your furniture and decor, on the floor or on your walls. Negative space, conversely, is the empty space around and in between those pieces of furnishing. And the word “empty” is important: we didn't say invisible! And because it is not invisible, it has, like everything else in your home, a big impact on how you feel in your living room or bedroom and how you experience them. So here's what you need to know about negative space and how to make the best of it. The optimal goal of designing a room is to make it feel in balance — the perfect amount of furniture, art and accessories so that it feels full, sophisticated and exciting. But not so full that it feels overwhelming or like the walls are closing in. Wanting to fill every wall and every corner with a design element so a space doesn't feel "blank" is a common design mistake.
