The interiors best reflect the personality of the residents. Whether you go for the minimalist look or the ornate Victorian look, it says something about your style, preferences and choices.
When we talk about home decor we can talk about paintings, vases, showpieces and what not. However, the fact remains that the first thing that defines the look of a room is the furniture.
Whether you’re renovating your home or having a new one built, if you’re looking to buy new furniture, here are some tips to help you make a better decision:
Many of us would kill to own a pair of Jimmy Choo’s, but we can’t afford them, so we’re silent. No matter how high quality our taste becomes, we have to work within a budget.
You have assigned certain resources to your interior design project and it is best in your best interest to stick to the limit. Once you’ve settled on the money class, you can play around with options to get the best fit.
Style, design and color
After you’ve made up your mind to get a few new pieces for your house, it’s time to pick them up. The good thing about today’s market is that you have many options. The bad thing about the market is that you have a lot of options. The variety can be mind-boggling. This can help you narrow down the options.
- Are you more attracted to furniture with a modern look? These have the added benefit of being easy to clean and maintain
- Are you more into vintage-style decor? This can add greatness to the simplest of homes
- If your walls have intricate wallpaper or heavily patterned curtains, it is better to stick with simple furniture. Otherwise, there will be confusion.
- If your walls are plain, you can play around with ornate furniture designs. However, carved furniture can be a little tricky to clean.
- If you have a huge house, you can play around with dramatic color effects in dark and contrasting hues.
- When space is tight, it’s best to stick to light and neutral shades. Using the same color theme for furniture, tapestries and other decorations improves the feeling of space.
The dimensions of the room should determine the size of your furniture. No matter how much you’re in love with these elongated back chairs, they won’t look great if you have a tiny space. Overcrowding the room with furniture not only makes the room look smaller, but also detracts from the usefulness of the space.
Yes, we are talking about furniture from a decoration point of view, but we cannot afford to ignore the fact that furniture must first and foremost be practical. If you are a family of three, a twelve seat dining table is a waste. (Not if you take a dozen people out for dinner every other day).
Sometimes you might come across a gorgeous table or cabinet that will take your breath away, but you need to think about where you would put it first, and does it fit in with the rest of the interiors there?
If, like me, you are very fond of furniture and keep experimenting with different looks for your room, then, like me, you are sure to face the excruciating problem of space and storage space. I found a simple solution with a facility for Storage and relocation in Bath, where I live.
These facilities are available across the UK and are safe, simple and affordable. You can stash unused furniture and other items in a warehouse and make more space at home for more furniture fun.
