Selecting The Right Furniture For Your Home

Posted on

The choice of furniture in our homes is an indirect reflection of our tastes and preferences. The following guidelines will help in selecting your desired home furniture.

  • Choose primary pieces first: Decide on primary pieces first like: beds, dining table and sofa. Then finish off with the other furniture.

  • Choose the theme: This makes it easier to select furniture that complements each other. Some themes that can be considered include: bohemian (carefree and adventurous); farmhouse (distressed wood and upholstered linen); industrial (exposed steel, distressed wooden elements, exposed brick walls); mid-century modern (refined lines, minimalist silhouettes and natural shapes); nautical (coastal or cottage decor); scandinavian (minimalist, simple, contemporary and functional); shabby chic (vintage elements that recreate the antique flea market look) and urban modern (minimalist modern, glamorous chic, ethnic heirlooms, and edgy experimental designs).
  • Define your needs: Consider the purpose of each room. Your lifestyle and family needs (family size, number of kids) play a part in the type of furniture to purchase.
  • Layout of each room: Every room has its unique dimension so it is important to consider the size and scale of each room.

Other things to consider include: aesthetics, durability, function and necessity.
