There's a psychological basis for our reasoning. According to Gestalt Psychology. every time we enter a new space. our brains process the room as a whole first. It's only after we are able to categorize the room by its function that we're able to truly focus in on its aesthetic or the individual design elements themselves.
Finally. it's important to consider negative space from an aesthetic perspective. Think of it this way — your design is a compilation of every single element that you decide to include in the space. as well as every single element you decide to leave out. When you include the right amount of negative space in your design. it's like striking the perfect balance between the two.
At its core. the word “contemporary” means “of the moment.” which makes this style particularly hard to define. Dating back to the 1970s. this style is unique because it borrows elements from many other aesthetics. In it. you can see nods to modern. traditional. art deco and even futuristic design.The other defining point of contemporary design is that it's constantly evolving.
Now that we've covered the psychological reasons for white space in your design. it's time to move on to the functional reasons. Put simply. these spaces are much easier to use than ones that are hampered by a lot of excess design elements.First. let's consider the flow of the room. At some point. you've probably experienced the feeling of working your way through a cluttered space.
