42 home design and decoration glossaries
For all home design and home decoration aficionados, as well as for linguists who want to specialise in these areas, we have put together a collection of glossaries to cover the terminology of these two fields. The descriptions will help you choose the most suitable glossary according to your interest and needs.
Home Haus – Although there are not a lot of terms listed in this glossary and although you may find it difficult to actually search a term (they are arranged in an alphabetic order, but you will have to go through five pages), this glossary contains exemplifying images, which is definitely a plus.
Westwind design – Most of the terms listed in this glossary are not very likely to be found in other general interior design/home design glossaries, which can be a great advantage of this website. Furthermore, the explanations given are comprehensive, even if the number of words included is not impressive.
Quizlet – Although the words listed in this glossary may have been encountered in other places as well, we liked this website because it offers the pronunciation of both the terms themselves and of their definition.
Plinth & Chintz – This is a great resource if you are looking for general terminology connected to interior design. The explanations given are comprehensive, easy to understand and, on top of that, the website also provides you with exemplifying images for most of the terms.
Danconia Interiors – You may not be used to the design of this website, but the explanations given for the terms listed in this glossary may be very useful for you, especially if you are looking for something that is more on the ‘professional’ side.
Budget Decorating – Not a very long glossary, but a useful one if you are searching for further information regarding certain interior decorations terminology. By clicking on each term, you will be redirected towards a page with extensive explanations related to the term (including common misspellings).
Home Furnishings – This is a glossary of furnishing-related terminology. Its greatest advantage is the fact that it contains a large number of words, so there is a great chance that you will find what you are searching for.
