The drawing room is a room that we enter in many houses as soon as we enter. Maybe the name drawing room reminds us of a room for painting. Still, the name drawing room is taken from the architecture of 16th-century houses with rooms called withdrawing rooms or withdrawing chambers. The use of withdrawing rooms was for the guest to wait for the host upon entering the house, and the rooms' features should be such that the guest can have a short rest and be entertained.


Drawing room or living room

The living room is where family members gather and relax, while the drawing room is where guests are welcomed when they enter the house. For an example of the differences between living rooms and drawing rooms, drawing rooms do not usually have TVs or comfortable recliner chairs; however, living rooms do.
Today, the number of houses that have drawing rooms has decreased. Because of the population increase and the need for more houses, homes have lower square footage than in the past; for this reason, the living room is sometimes used as a drawing room. Anyway, the importance of home interior design compels talking about drawing room designs too.

Interior design is one of the most critical issues in every home because we can relax and enjoy its beauty with a proper contemporary interior design. So decorated drawing rooms are precious. In addition, entering a house, the first thing that attracts the guest's attention is the drawing room. So the interior design of the drawing room is essential and can show your personality and lifestyle to the guest. There are different designs for drawing rooms, for example, simple design, vintage interior design, minimalist drawing room, maximalist drawing room, etc. Many factors affect an interior design, like its size, home architecture, and how many family members and guests you usually have in your home.

The following article will discuss the essential elements for drawing room interior design so you can design a lovely one for your home. Even with a small drawing room, you can have an excellent drawing room interior design.

  • Drawing room wall design: What do you think about having a piece of art on a drawing room's wall? Large wall art such as nature wall art, coastal wall art, white wall art, classical art, black and white abstract art, or any other minimalist abstract art can turn one of the room walls into an art gallery. In addition, you can use the new pre-assembled wall decoration tools; an example is in the picture below. In addition, a suitable wall light can be an attractive decorative item for your lovely drawing room.
