When creating your space, furniture is one of the top influencers in making your design. You can create your design theme solely off all the furniture you place in a room. Thus, selecting the perfect furniture can be a daunting tasking. Furniture that may work in one space may feel obtrusive and out of place in another room. If you are looking to update a room’s furniture, you want to make sure you pick it right. Here are three things you need to remember when choosing the perfect furniture for each room:
To start the process, select a design theme. If you have no idea what style or design to begin following, look at the environment. Architecture may already be influenced by a certain style. Do you have circular windows or arched doorways? What is something unique about your space? Do you live in an urban loft or rustic lodge? Maybe your walls are stucco or brick. These environmental influences should help you decide the best route to take your design.
Scale & Uniform
The size of your room can play a critical role. A bedroom set that may have looked fantastic in a small room may not feel proportionate in a larger space. Likewise, stuffing a king-sized bed in a small room may take from the room’s overall aesthetics. Pay attention to your ceiling height as well. Taking advantage of the scale and size of your room will help you master what furniture works best in each atmosphere. Do not let one item take up more room than it should, and remember that having uniformed furniture is important. Make your furniture uniformed to the design. For example, if all your furniture is distressed woods, a piano black contemporary stool may look out of place in the room.
Consider the patterns affiliated with the style of the room. A Modern design may demand sleek lines in the furniture. Art Deco is based on very distinguished geometric patterns, while Shabby Chic can have softer more round and washed patterns, so establish your design then select your furniture. This is the best way to ensure your furniture all complement your design theme!
Be open-minded and adaptable to your space. Not all furniture is meant to fit each room. Remember, even when you move, you may have to switch furniture that once worked in your old home with furniture that is suitable for your new home.
