8 Different Ways to Decorate With Geometric Patterns
There’s something rather wonderful about introducing geometric patterns to our homes. Visually stimulating, they look right at home in any space – from elegant minimalist to brash contemporary and everything in between. And unlike the floral trend, geometric patterns have never really gone out of fashion.

Looking to introduce a little geometric flair into your home decor? Here are a few ways to incorporate playful geometric patterns and shapes in your home.
1. Start small by displaying patterned art
If you are afraid of making a big commitment with a geometrical pattern that you might regret later, start with small items and then work your way through bigger pieces. An artwork, for example, is a good choice if you want to add geometric designs to a room, in small, light doses. The small-scale artwork below adds visual interest without overwhelming the space, while also adding some colour to the plain white walls.

Besides artworks, you can also incorporate other accessories such as geometric patterned cushion covers, vases and even cabinet knobs. The aim is to draw the eye to the various patterned elements that form the central focus of a room.

2. Add dimension to a space with unique-shaped mirrors
To add a show-stopping effect to your home with geometric patterns, consider reflective surfaces such as mirrored tiles. Find one in an unusual shape like an octagon or one that has been overlaid with circles or grids; group multiple square mirrors together to create your own unique pattern as displayed in this modern home.
3. Make an area pop with geometric rugs
The bold look of geometric designs has a fantastic effect on the ground. Geometric carpets and rugs, for example, can uplift a room and add a little dazzle to your living space. This is also one area where it's fairly safe to invest in larger geometric designs.

You can also use geometric rugs to tie together your room’s colour palette, to bring in some texture, or to offset smaller, more organic patterns as pictured in this modern contemporary home. Choose a soft tone variation or neutral shades to create a subtle effect or vibrant and contrasting colours to add a visual punch to a space.

4. Create a focal point with geometric walls
Geometric patterns are a huge trend in wall designs. Just a handful of simple basic shapes is all it takes to create a bold statement on your wall. Below, the asymmetric pattern in gold combined with the grey-toned walls lends an elegant and calming effect to the bedroom.

5. Make a bold statement with geometry-inspired furniture
Statement furniture is definitely trending within the interior world so why not opt for one that incorporates geometry so it never goes out of fashion. This geometry-inspired coffee table, for example, is an ideal way to add visual impact to the living room. You can even extend the geometric play of the statement furniture by mirroring the same shape or colour into a different object found in the room like on the curtains or the cushion covers.
6. Introduce geometric shapes in a subtle way
A subtle coloured geometric pattern can also help create visual interest without looking too busy. However, it really is down to personal preference as to how dramatic a look you create. Just look how subtle this white geometric wall panel looks into this modern dining room. It goes well against the contrasting emerald green walls to avoid making it look boring and uninteresting.
7. Incorporate geometric patterns in lighting
Introducing geometric shapes through lighting fixtures can dramatically change the way a room looks and feels. This dining room designed by Nevermore Group for example, oozes sophistication and elegance with its black geometric pendant lights. The contemporary lighting fixture looks artistic, adding eye-catching centrepieces and flair to the dining area.
8. Soften the look with geometric backsplash
Whether you go for actual tile or the peel-and-stick version, geometric pattern pop nicely as a kitchen backsplash. Take design cues from this home that feature stunning floral-style tiles used as a kitchen backsplash. It creates softness and visual interest to the kitchen area. The repetitive pattern also brings calm to the space, which can sometimes be chaotic.
