A healthy interior starts from the floor

“Healthy interior” – this phrase is encountered more and more often. The topic is most relevant for residents of cities and megacities, where one can only dream of a clean atmosphere. Indeed, the inhabitants of large cities are inevitably hostages of comfort and technological progress. It’s not surprising that people tend to get out of town for at least a weekend and get a little of rest.

And if it is difficult to influence the external atmosphere, it is up to everyone to create a special healthy microclimate inside their home. It is important to understand what a “healthy interior” is and decide how to achieve it.
Cork House is happy to help in resolving this issue.

What makes an impression about this or that house?

There are many factors: how welcome are the hosts, are you comfortable staying here, etc.? Anyway, to create a cozy atmosphere in your home, it will take a lot of effort. If you have already decided to change the interior of your apartment or you are going to make repairs soon, pay close attention to the walls.

The head of the Cork House company, Kazan, architect-designer Denis Fomakhin told us about what do one need to know, choosing finishing materials for the walls.

“Everything: construction, repair, design»: Denis Alexandrovich, the number of different design studios, as well as private interior designers has extremely increased in recent years. Despite this, not all engaged in the arrangement of their apartment or house, turn to the services of studios. Unfortunately, the practice (when the creation of the interior is trusted by professionals) does not yet have a mass distribution, although the positive dynamics is already observed in this direction. Many people still rely solely on their own strengths. What advice on the decoration of the walls could you give to those who are planning to update the look of their apartment soon?

Denis Fomakhin:
  The choice of finishing materials, for walls, is a complex process that requires knowledge of many nuances. First, it is necessary to start from the peculiarities of the premises. Probably, many have heard that with the help of the correct selection of finishing materials it is possible to hide shortcomings or defects of the room. And, conversely, without knowing these subtleties, you can create a visual effect that will further exacerbate the situation. An elementary example: horizontal bands visually expand, stretch the room, but do it somewhat lower. Vertical bands, in turn, make the rooms visually somewhat higher than it is. The visual perception of the room is influenced by the ornament used in the decoration of the walls: a small picture enlarges the room, a large one, on the contrary, reduces it. Checkered, striped, filled with reportable (repetitive) pattern areas appear to be larger than the same monotonous ones.
