Budget, Space, Colour, Storage, Hang it there
Furniture is an integral part of your home, defining the function of everything from the bedroom to the living room. Furniture is a crucial element to ensure your home is a comfortable place to live in. There are many things to consider before buying furniture, as the process can easily be overwhelming – but it shouldn’t be. The key is to be careful and logical.
Here are some pointers before you go ahead and buy new furniture:
So, you have your eye on that expensive sofa, but before splurging all your money on one piece of furniture, calculate how much of your budget should go into each area/room. You don’t want to put a big hole in your pocket and have nothing left for all the other things you need.
Measure the space, consider who will be using the room and how many people you can expect to fit into the room. Knowing these details will help you place the furniture accordingly, maintaining enough space for comfort without compromising on the look. Remember not cramp up the space with your favourites or bulky items, leaving very little room to manoeuvre.
Your furniture should be coordinated with the colour of the walls. Don’t go overboard either. Complement the walls or go for classic colours like brown, black and white. But if you do want to add a brighter touch to your décor, try contrasting colours that are pleasant on your eyes while bringing some freshness to the room. Mix and match until you have a perfect combination that matches your house’s interiors and your personality.
Who doesn’t like extra storage, whether you’re short on space or not? Choose furniture which not only looks good, whether it’s in your living room, bedroom, or dining area but can also double up as storing spaces.
Hang it there:
Rather than having furniture that takes up large amounts of floor space, opt for wall units for things like books, paraphernalia, or essential supplies. This can create much more space because these units can extend right up to the ceiling. Shelving units are available in so many different shapes and sizes, they can meet the needs of every room – and they’re convenient and affordable too. Remember, going vertical means more ground space! Invest in a foldable/extendable ladder if required and you’re set.
