Over the past decade, the advantages of introverts have been gradually discovered. The Quiet Revolution, which is sweeping across all sectors, is now blowing into interior design. Experts predict that the future of interior design will focus more on the needs of introverts, with an emphasis on 'quiet spaces' that allow people to settle down and restore their mental energy.

Because extroverts are talkative and social, they tend to attract more attention. It has long been thought that extroverts are overrepresented and introverts are the 'silent and introverted minority'. In recent years, researchers have found that between 30% and 50% of the world's population are introverts, and that these introverts even imitate extroverts at the expense of their own traits and needs.

In fact, the founding father of classical mechanics Isaac Newton, stock god Warren Buffett, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerman, and famous actress Emma Watson are all famous introverts. Not only do introverts have the advantage of being analytical and listening, they are also more independent, focused and creative. However, unlike extroverts, they need to spend time alone to 'recharge' and recover the mental energy used up during social interaction. Introverts should therefore have an office and home space that is more suited to them.

Aim for a simple and uncomplicated design style

Interior design for introverts must be kept simple and uncomplicated. For introverts, they do not like too much stimulation in their environment and strong colours, bold blocks of colour and colourful themes can be too 'loud' for them. Excessive clutter in the environment may also prevent them from relaxing.

For introverts, a minimalist home environment means that everything is in order, just like the inner world they seek. They aspire to a simple and well-organised life and want an environment that allows them to concentrate more. It is therefore important to remember that for introverts, the appropriate design concept is "less is more".

Prefer neutrals and cool colours

Introverts like a quiet and calm feeling in their homes, and this is reflected in their taste in interiors. When choosing a colour palette for an introvert's home, it is advisable to use bright neutrals, which will help to create a balanced and peaceful environment.

If you are an introvert who likes colour, choosing cool colours is more likely to be successful. According to colour psychology, blues and greens have a more soothing effect than warm colours, providing inner peace and clarity of thought. For them, there is no need for complex wall decorations; they prefer large, clean spaces where the eye can rest. Similarly, when using wallpaper or patterns, extra attention should be paid to the colour palette and choice of colours to avoid too much 'visual noise'.

Gradual space transformation

Introverts like to plan thoroughly, weighing up all their options and ideas before making a final decision. Psychoanalyst Dr Marti Laney In her book The Hidden Gifts of the Introverted Child, Marti Laney, a psychoanalyst, notes that introverts have higher levels of concentration, reflection and planning than extroverts. Introverts are able to take a calm view of things in spite of external disturbances.

Therefore, when planning an interior, introverts do not make impulsive decisions, preferring to value the process and to clarify all aspects before considering it. Of course, doing so can make the whole design process slow, and it can even take years. Therefore, it is advisable for introverts to plan their space by using a gradual remodelling approach in separate areas. For example, remodelling one bedroom at a time, or one corner of the living room, will also allow introverts to practice and experiment with their spatial choices during the gradual remodelling process.

Of course, if an entire empty house is to be designed, then a step-by-step approach to remodelling is not possible. In this case, it is advisable for introverts to decorate key areas of the space first, leaving more gaps that they can fill in slowly as they live there. If you're looking for a professional designer to work with, you'll also have to make sure they understand your ideas first, and the best way to do that is to have an introvert as your designer!
