I asked myself few questions when I was looking for examples of texture. I wanted to find a design used in real life that was tangible, but that was not always noticed. We are surrounded by designs that we’re not fully aware of when we pass by them. You don’t notice the texture of a design unless you take time in actively looking at the material. These were the designs that fit into these categories. The textures of these designs are complex and intricate, but mostly go unnoticed.
I guess the first pattern I noticed and wanted to input was the pattern of my carpet. Carpets have some of the most interesting patterns and their texture is intentional. Carpets need to serve the purpose of providing more tension versus a floor. The yarns on this carpet is weaved more tightly, providing less attraction compared to other types of carpets. I was trying to research on the pattern itself as well. I learned that carpets are designed to have this disorganized and not orientated to one side because that makes it harder for dirt to be apparent. I think carpets have the ideal texture in a room because they hide away scratches and dirt through their craves, and aides in trapping heat.
Bathroom tiles have simpler designs. Their main focus is simplicity and cleanliness. Tiled floors are effective in pushing water so they do not get easily slippery when cleaning the bathroom. The surface is smooth, allowing better flow of dirt.
