Stable Diffusion Prompts for Interior Design (17 Prompt Examples)

In this guide, I'll show you how to write prompts for interior design. This will help you get creative and explore different ideas.

You don't change the interior of your home or business often. This is especially true for major changes. It's imperative to take your time and do sufficient research so that you know that you made the absolute best decision possible because you're going to be stuck with it for a while.

Although one approach to exploring different interior design concepts is to simply look through images on the internet, there is a much better option now. Generative AI models like Stable Diffusion XL enable you to describe what you want an interior to look like and the model will create for you. You can then make small or big changes to it and continue this process until you find a design that works for you.

It's evident that a majority of the people (at least, at the time of writing this article) haven't really begun to use or even understand the power of AI-powered tools like Stable Diffusion. If you're new to this text-to-image model, you're in for a real treat.

In this article, I'll show you how to write prompts for interior design. This will help you get creative and explore different ideas. If you're an interior designer, it's also a great way to quickly create ideas that you can share with a client to get a general sense of what they're looking for.

How to Write Stable Diffusion Prompts for Interior Design

The process of writing Stable Diffusion prompts for interior design is incredibly simple. Although, it might take some time to get used to it.

I've been doing SEO for a long time, and it unexpectedly helped me a lot with writing prompts. I'm able to structure them in a similar way I structure my articles. I segment the prompt into several short parts and infuse them with keywords that will make the generated image stand out.

To make sure that you perfectly explain to the AI model what you want to create, it's important that you take the time to get familiar with the terminology used in interior design. This will help keep your prompts concise, which is crucial if you want to get good results.

To create all of the images you'll see in this article, I used the '3D Model' preset style that's available in Stable Diffusion XL. If you're not used to how to select this style, you should look at the image below.

All you basically have to do is click on the settings button and you'll see a number of different styles shown. In the third row, you will notice the '3D Model' style. Click on this button and the style will be activated.

I want to note that I used the widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio to create all of the images that you'll see here. The same way you select a style in Stable Diffusion is how you essentially choose an aspect ratio.

17 Stable Diffusion Prompt Examples for Interior Design

Apart from this article, I also have one where I created various interior design concepts in Midjourney. If you're looking for additional inspiration for your prompts, I recommend that you check out my article on Midjourney prompts for interior style. There you'll find 12 more original prompts and the images that were created with them.

Now let's go through the examples of what you can create in Stable Diffusion XL.

prompt #1: scandinavian forest cabin, log walls, reindeer hide rugs, cozy fireplace, northern wilderness escape

stable diffusion interior design prompt 1

This is without a doubt the definition of a cozy fireplace. The furniture goes well with this interior aesthetic. I also like the fact that you can see the winter wilderness through the window. If you were to upscale this image, it would be hard to figure out that it was generated with artificial intelligence. When it comes to interior and exterior design, Stable Diffusion can produce photorealistic results.

prompt #2: Hollywood regency glamor, mirrored furniture, velvet upholstery, crystal chandeliers, classic elegance

stable diffusion interior design prompt 2

If I'm being completely honest, this is too glam for me. I appreciate the classic elegance, but I would be uncomfortable in this room. I'm more of a simple man. I like nice things, but I prefer a more minimalist and discreet style.

prompt #3: Victorian gothic library, dark oak bookshelves, leather chesterfield sofas, ornate chandeliers, moody atmosphere

stable diffusion interior design prompt 3

If I had a mansion, I would turn one of the rooms into a fabulous library. It would look something like this. Not saying that I would ever live in a big mansion (I'm more into apartments), but I'm imagining what it would be like to do. The leather furniture adds a classic touch to the room.

prompt #4: urban industrial loft, exposed brick walls, polished concrete floors, minimalist decor, edison bulb lighting

stable diffusion interior design prompt 4

This is quite a spacious loft. I love the fact that I can add a keyword like 'Edison bulb lighting' and the AI model makes sure to include it in the design. I previously mentioned that you should keep your prompts concise. The best way to do that while also including a lot of detail is to separate your prompt into different keywords and then fuse them together. As you can see, I separate each keyword or key phrase with a comma.

prompt #5: industrial chic coffee shop, repurposed factory equipment, reclaimed wood tables, exposed ductwork

stable diffusion interior design prompt 5

You don't have to create interior design concepts only for homes. If you plan on opening a business soon, you can explore different ideas with Stable Diffusion XL. Let's say that you're opening a coffee shop. You can apply so many different aesthetics, styles, furniture, and just about anything else you can imagine to see how it would look. This can help you make a great decision about how you want the interior of your business to be designed.

prompt #6: cyberpunk underground lounge, neon lights, holographic art installations, retractable skylight, futuristic hideaway

stable diffusion interior design prompt 6

Alright, I have to admit that this one is a little bit out there. It's not something you'd see in the real world (I think) but that doesn't mean you shouldn't try to create design concepts like this. If you're making a video game, you can actually pick up a lot of great insights from testing out prompts like this. After all, this image looks like it's a screenshot taken from a modern video game.

prompt #7: art nouveau dining room, curved floral patterns, tiffany stained glass, elegance

stable diffusion interior design prompt 7

There is a lot of timeless elegance in this design. Sometimes, the images you create in Stable Diffusion XL won't be perfect. You can easily tell that this one was created by artificial intelligence just by looking at the chairs. Nevertheless, you can always continue generating images until you find one where practically every detail is perfect.

prompt #8: Egyptian pharaoh's chamber, gold leaf accents, hieroglyphic murals, canopied bed, timeless royalty

stable diffusion interior design prompt 8

First of all, I want to say that I'll forever wonder what the Great Pyramids of Giza must have looked like when they were first constructed. The second thing is that I often ponder how much gold was actually used in Ancient Egypt because it must have been a lot.

I wanted to have fun with this prompt and create something that you wouldn't usually cross your mind when you think about interior design. Even though I don't like glamor, I would have no problem living in a home like this.

prompt #9: French provencal kitchen, lavender fields color scheme, rustic farmhouse table, sunflower arrangements, country charm

stable diffusion interior design prompt 9

There's a lot of country charm here. That's exactly what I wanted to see. I get a sense of peace when I'm looking at this image. Life really is simpler when you're living in the countryside. I personally prefer to be in an urban area, but I sometimes feel the need to spend time somewhere quiet.

prompt #10: Moroccan riad kitchen, colorful zellige tiles, mosaic backsplash, open-concept layout, exotic

stable diffusion interior design prompt 10

For this prompt, I wanted to incorporate a style that might not be very popular in the Western world. This is a stunning idea for a kitchen design. The colorful tiles and the open layout make this a gorgeous kitchen.

prompt #11: art deco penthouse suite, sunburst patterns, gilded mirrors, crystal chandeliers, roaring twenties opulence

stable diffusion interior design prompt 11

I could never picture myself spending money on a penthouse suite. I'd maybe consider it if I was extremely rich, but I don't need all of this in a room. However, I'd be lying if I said that an image like this isn't visually appealing. Everything about this interior looks spectacular.

prompt #12: Italian gelateria, pastel color scheme, gelato display cases, mosaic tile flooring

stable diffusion interior design prompt 12

It wouldn't feel right writing in my prompt that I wanted the AI model to generate an image of an Italian ice cream shop. That's why I had to use the right term and call it a gelateria. I used the pastel color palette, which is one of my favorites. I also borrowed the mosaic tile idea from the Moroccan kitchen design I previously shared. What I got as a result is a stunning interior design concept for a gelateria.

prompt #13: futuristic cyberpunk nightclub, holographic dance floor, UV-reactive decor, neon-infused music hub, sci-fi rave destination

stable diffusion interior design prompt 13

Going into a room like this would be extremely overwhelming to me. There is so much going on, and the lights are so bright that I would become anxious almost immediately. But I know that there are some people who can't wait until nightclubs start looking like this. There might already be some with this aesthetic, but I'm just not familiar with them. Anyway, I think this cyberpunk interior design style for nightclubs will become very popular in the near future.

prompt #14: modern jungle retreat, lush greenery, sleek contemporary furniture

stable diffusion interior design prompt 14

Even though I absolutely love nature, I personally wouldn't want to be in a home like this. Yet I can still appreciate the beauty of a jungle retreat. This is one of the simpler prompts I wrote for this article. The minimalist style complements the outdoor scenery well. So, this is an overall great concept.

prompt #15: retro 50s diner, checkered floors, chrome accents, vinyl booth seating, nostalgic dining experience

stable diffusion interior design prompt 15

I think the 50s and the 60s were some of the best decades to be alive, especially in the United States. Two world wars ended and a time of prosperity and technological innovation was upon society. Although I'll never get to experience that, at least I can go to an old-school diner that features an aesthetic from that time period.

prompt #16: cozy coastal cottage bedroom, white walls, nautical decor, wicker furniture, seaside retreat

stable diffusion interior design prompt 16

The combination of white walls and wicker furniture is what comes to my mind when I'm thinking of a seaside retreat. One of the more interesting objects featured in this image is the painting of the sea or ocean on the wall. It goes well with the nautical decor theme, but I was still pleasantly surprised when I saw the AI model included this small but noticeable detail.

prompt #17: modern scandinavian nursery, neutral color palette, wooden crib, functional storage

stable diffusion interior design prompt 17

If you're planning on having a child soon and want to decorate a room in your house accordingly, then I definitely recommend that you use a generative AI model to help you find the right design. I decided to use the modern Scandinavian style here because it's sleek and clean, but you can apply any style you want.

In fact, if you're new to text-to-image models I suggest you check out what's possible to create in Stable Diffusion by taking some of the parts from my previous prompts and applying it to this one. You'll be blown away by the results you get.

Final Thoughts

I kept most of the prompt examples realistic, but I wanted also to have some fun with a few prompts. That's why you also noticed a few interior designs that are quite different from the rest.

In my opinion, it's much better to explore interior design concepts with the help of a tool like Stable Diffusion than it is to look through countless images on Pinterest and Instagram. Using a generative AI model is an interactive experience during which you can learn a lot.

When you're using Stable Diffusion XL to create interior design concepts, I recommend that you always use the '3D Model' style. It makes the generated results better and more consistent.
