6 Tips for Choosing the Right Furniture

Shopping for furniture involves a lot of consideration – from choosing the right size and material to finding the perfect position and fitting each piece into your decor. Furnishing your home can turn into an absolutely overwhelming and stress – inducing experience. One of the reasons is that a furniture purchase may seems so very final. You need to be sure that you are making the right decision and get appliances that will stand the test of time.

outdoor furniture beautiful homeFalling in love with the look of the furniture, without considering its construction and durability is one of the biggest pitfalls. Cleaning and maintenance should also be on your check list. The ideal furnishing should have transcendent design, distinct details and quality of structure. Here are some guidelines on how to pick the proper furniture for you.

  1. Construction

Ideally, a furniture piece should feel heavy and solid. Skip the aluminum and the particleboard frame for indoor furniture. The solid wood constructions last longer and add a classy tinge to the interior. However, always ensure that the price is consistent with the quality and your expectations for the lifespan.

  1. Comfort

Aesthetics is one of the most important features when selecting furniture. You should not base your decision solely on the look of the piece. Think about the function and the role of these items in your everyday life. Before buying anything, give it the sit test. No matter how beautiful your new furniture is, it’s useless if it’s not comfortable.

  1. Shape

Is the shape of the furniture trendy or will it remain stylish during the years? Buying furnishings involves a sufficient investment and it says a lot about you. Choose items that you will love in the future. This doesn’t mean, however, that you should choose something dull and shapeless. Whether you prefer contemporary or traditional design, look for timeless classics.modern sofa and designer coffee table

  1. Finish

If you are considering buying furniture with exposed wood, pay attention to the stain or finish color. These features can dramatically impact the style and the durability of your pieces. For example you can easily transform a chair from traditional to contemporary by replacing the cherry stain with a black paint. Some finishes require special cleaning and treatment. If you don’t want to spend a lot of time on furniture maintenance, get items that need less care.

  1. Fabric

When purchasing upholstered furniture, keep in mind that lighter colored fabrics are suitable for a bedroom. However, you should avoid these shades for frequently used pieces. Instead, choose a slightly darker fabric that will need less cleaning.

  1. The Unexpected

The final element of a well furnished home is personality. Look for unique pieces that can add character and interest to the room. It can be anything from an unconventional or interesting tufting, to a colorful detail. Use your personal intuition as a guide. Avoid impersonal or boring feeling spaces. Your taste should be reflected in items of your decor. For more house cleaning tips visit: cleaning services cleaners ltd.

Beliani Furniture Outlet on Gordon Ramsay TV Show

outdoor wicker dining set patio furniture

Beliani Furniture will get it’s first TV appearance in the dramatic show “Hotel Hell” with celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay.  FOX network has finished filming its episode at Meson De Mesilla, a troubled New Mexico, Rio Grande Valley Hotel. The show is planned to air this fall.

Online furniture outlet Beliani had been approached to provide some of their modern design patio furniture, which would be used to re-vamp the hotel. The photo above shows the outdoor wicker dining set. The US management was thrilled, “what a great opportunity to show our fine products to the North American public!”

With “Hotel Hell” Fox uses a similar plot as with “Kitchen Nightmares.” Gordon Ramsay will face a struggling hotel and try to turn it around while all drama is let loose between the owners, management and staff. Ramsay will live up to his reputation of being brutally honest, explicit and loud while dealing with everyone around him.

Built in the 1980s the Meson De Mesilla was once an affluent jazz hangout. The place has been run down and Ramsey shall be the hero picking up the pieces and getting it back on track. Below is a video that shows the hotel before the show. It gives insights into the management and an interview with the oblivious owner.

“I am getting nervous,” said Ceara Angel, 33, Meson de Mesilla’s lead chef (before filming). “I respect him as a chef. Sometimes people need to hear the hard truth.”

It remains to be seen, what kind of verbal and physical abuse the chef as well as the furniture will have to take from Ramsey….

Prepare Your Summer Patio in a Snap By Visiting an Outdoor Furniture Outlet

An outdoor furniture outlet is full of possibilities and surprisesNo matter how hard we try to foresee the future, the weather can be an unpredictable force. The local news will show predictions of what the next week will look like, and there’s even an entire channel dedicated to showing rain patterns and cloud movement. Despite these efforts, we are still often surprised by heavy rain falls, freak snowstorms, or freezing cold windy weather. Sometimes people forget about the glory of summer when they’re making their way through the rest of the year. The brisk cold of fall, the endless snow and chilliness of winter, and the dreary rains of spring eventually fade away into glorious, golden summer. One day you may wake up and realize that it’s the middle of June! When this happens, your eye may turn to your empty patio. You may wish to entertain friends and guests with the aid of some outdoor furniture. Don’t feel as though you’ve procrastinated and now it’s too late to enjoy the summer weather. You can still have your best friends over and enjoy the warm weather even if you’ve waited a while. Visit an outdoor furniture outlet to find the perfect set for your patio without driving yourself crazy with effort or spending your savings account. Before you know it, you’ll be relaxing outside under the hot sun and enjoying the company of your nearest and dearest. Here’s a rundown as to why an outlet is your best choice to prepare your patio for summer fun quickly.

Don’t Spend Your Retirement Account on the Best Patio Set Possible

Shopping for seasonal goods can be risky sometimes. You’ve likely gone shopping for a bathing suit or some sandals when summer is in full swing, and been horrified at the prices. Traditional retailers know that people who are buying their summer goods are willing to pay out the nose. If you don’t want to fall into this trap, then it’s time to find another seller. An outdoor furniture outlet will keep low prices all year round. This option ensures that you won’t be shelling out big bucks that line the pockets of traditional retailers.

Save Money and Still Get the Best Pieces Available

Society has carefully trained the average consumer to see a larger price tag as a sign of greater quality. You may be worried that going to an outlet and buying furniture for a lower price is simply too good to be true. Enjoy the summer shade in peace and quiet on a set purchased from an outdoor furniture outletHowever, the outdoor furniture outlet can afford to have these low prices without sacrificing the quality of the product. Whereas most retailers are located in central, urban, populated areas where rent is high, outlets are by their nature more secluded and lower in maintenance. You can go to an online outlet with the furniture you’ve been dreaming of without having to withdraw your entire savings account.

Visiting an Outlet is a Welcome Respite From the Summer Shopping Frenzy

Going shopping in the summer can be a hectic, overwhelming experience. This worry and stress is multiplied when you’re looking for expensive goods that require a great amount of thought, and seasonal goods that have a ‘time limit’ on them. It can feel like you’re competing with dozens of other people, all looking for the best deals and the most attractive pieces. Shouldering your way through swarms of people and being hustled past the furniture you want to examine by eager shoppers can really throw you off and make you confused about what purchase you want to make. Meanwhile, an outdoor furniture outlet is a breath of fresh air. These online shopping centers have the entire inventory for you along with pictures and descriptions. You can take as long as you like to look at every set, as well as take advantage of deals. A trip to the outlet is relaxed, and you can take your time and pick the set that you love. Don’t allow yourself to be rushed through a shopping trip when you’re looking at a large purchase. Take your time and do things right.

Select From a Wide Variety of Furniture With Fashions From Around the World and Across Time

When you look out on your patio and envision the perfect summer set up, you likely want to put those ideas into reality. When you visit traditional retailers, you often find that your dream has tight restrictions on it. You may feel forced into picking a set that isn’t anything like you pictured. When you visit an outdoor furniture outlet, these restrictions vanish. Traditional retailers have a limited amount of real estate and space, and so they often end up picking only the most fashionable and likely to sell sets to put on display. If anything is going to sit, take up space, and gather dust, they have no need for it. However, these sets that are less popular are often the ones with the most personality. You may find yourself bored and uninspired by the sets at a traditional retailer, but an outlet can have vintage sets or unusual builds that are far more exciting. Browse a variety of sets before you settle on the one that will grace your patio all summer long.

If you have a taste for unusual styles, then an outdoor furniture outlet is your best betYou may have lost track of the time, and suddenly summer has rolled around. Don’t worry; you can prepare your summer patio for entertainment and relaxing without wasting away the best weather of the year or taking out a second mortgage. Simply visit an outdoor furniture outlet for a superior method of summer shopping. When you try to check out traditional retailers, they’ll have punishing season prices. An outlet lets you dodge this money sink and enjoy reasonable prices. You’ll also avoid the frenzied crowd of consumers who turn into a mob and ruin your placid experience. On top of these bonuses, you can enjoy a larger selection of outdoor furniture. Before you know it, you’ll be heading home with the perfect patio set. Enjoy your summer with friends and family by looking at Beliani’s selection of outdoor furniture and dining sets.

Pick Modern Patio Furniture that Neither Wind Nor Water Can Thwart

Modern patio furniture is a beautiful addition to any backyard, and you'll want to protect your investment from the forces of natureIf you’re a homeowner, then you’re probably aware of the amount of maintenance that furniture and decorations can require. This can be enough of a pain when you’re dealing with your indoor rooms; the list of chores can be endless! Sweeping, mopping, scrubbing, dusting, laundry, vacuuming, and polishing everything in your home is a time consuming task. This workload adds up and can make countless hours of your free time vanish. Who wants to add a new dimension to cleaning and maintaining their furniture? Many types of outdoor furniture require careful upkeep and a constant eye on their status. Why is this furniture so needy? Being outside exposes this furniture to the fury of the elements. Mother Nature is a cruel force, and wind and water can destroy the frames of your furniture. When this damage is already done, it can’t be reversed, and you can end up with worn down, visually unappealing furniture. Replacing a patio set every time this happens is an unsustainable practice. Despite these dangers, purchasing and applying expensive sprays and carefully washing and protecting the frames of the furniture take the fun out of a summer set. There’s another option that allows you to enjoy the luxury of a summer patio set without having to break your back and drain your free time protecting it from wind and rain.Modern patio furniture is equipped to handle the risks that summer weather brings, while also being comfortable and stylish. It can be hard to tell the difference between furniture that will resist damage and furniture that will be ruined at a glance. This guide will outline the dangers of wind and water and explain why modern outdoor furniture can resist them.

The Danger of Moisture and Summer Gales Explained

When you’re standing on your patio on a lovely summer day, it’s hard to see the surrounding world as dangerous. However, the weather can be volatile, with sudden changes. One day, there can be a beautiful blue sky without a cloud in sight; the next, pouring rain and rumbling thunder. If you don’t see the natural elements as a danger to your outside furniture, then consider rock formations that have been smoothed away by erosion. If mountains can fall, then so can your patio furniture. Here’s a rundown on exactly why these two forces must be taken into account when picking modern patio furniture.

Moisture Breaks Your Outdoor Set Down From the Inside Out

The Trojan Horse is a tale of a clever case of subterfuge carried out by the Greek army. The Greeks had been sieging a wall for 10 years, and finally they decided to take another approach. They constructed a huge wooden horse and hid their most elite troops inside, then left it behind as they pretended to give up in defeat. The Trojans brought the horse inside their walls, and the soldiers crept out, slew the guards, and opened the gate. Moisture takes the same nefarious tactic when it assaults your outdoor furniture. Rain and water in the air makes its way into small cracks, imperfections, and holes in the frame of the furniture. There it lies in wait, slowly corroding away at the integrity of the frame. With modern patio furniture, a heavy rain is no longer a reason to panic about your outdoor setIf the temperature drops, this water freezes, expands, and causes even more damage. So why can modern patio furniture ignore the risk of rain and humidity?  Their frames are made out of resilient materials like resin wicker or certain kinds of wood. These types of frames don’t allow water to worm its way inside the frame to cause trouble.

Wind Can Speed Up and Apply Extreme Pressure to Your Patio

Moisture isn’t a surprise hazard to many homeowners, but some people don’t realize what a problem wind can be. The issue isn’t with a light breeze, but instead a gusting gale. Wind can damage furniture by knocking it about, or in extreme cases, sweep it far off the patio. Modern patio furniture is designed with this problem in mind, and can take far more of a beating than older sets. With extreme weather becoming more and more common each year, you’ll want to be prepared.

What is the Difference Between Modern Patio Furniture and the Alternatives?

‘Modern’ is a prefix that lacks meaning to some people. What is ‘modern’ in the context of outdoor furniture? What does it mean? The answer is that these kind of patio sets were constructed from the ground up with modern needs in mind. Even classic elements can be appropriated with modern twists that make them safer and easier. Instead of picking out the first glass set that wins your heart but risks breakage, you can look at tempered glass that has passed quality control standards. Synthetic wood-effect finish takes the randomness out of natural grown trees while giving you the same look and feel. Additionally, extreme weather has become more common in recent years. Modern furniture takes these problems into account, thus reducing the risk that you’ll have to shell out for a replacement patio set. If you’re looking for modern patio furniture, one of the biggest signs you should look for is the material of construction. Teak wood, resin wicker, rattan furniture, and steel are all popular and affordable materials used in modern furniture. All of these materials are durable, stylish, and most importantly resistant to wind and water, making them an excellent choice for adorning your back yard.

The elements can be unforgiving on outdoor furniture. However, that doesn’t mean that the solution is to spend valuable time and money helping protect and shield your patio set from the elements. There’s a way to enjoy the luxury and Beliani offers modern patio furniture that is both tenacious and gorgeousrelaxation of your backyard without constantly applying expensive sprays and other protection. Modern patio furniture offers homeowners a great solution. Enjoy the summer without worrying about moisture or wind and the upkeep of your furniture. Prepare your patio for summer hosting with a set of modern outdoor furniture from Beliani that fits your personality and your life!

Keep Your Outdoor Dining Set Safe from the Meddling Hands of Kids and Pets

Keep Your Outdoor Dining Set Safe from the Meddling Hands of Kids and Pets

It’s amazing how some people look at the same object with varying perspectives. Sixteen year-old “Susan” sees an old, gold necklace as a means for some fast cash, while her grandma sees it as a relic of their family ancestry. Or maybe nineteen year-old “Johnny” sees a brand new tablet as a cool gaming device, while his dad sees it as the perfect tool to manage his documents outside of the office.

When it comes to your furniture, a similar thing can occur. Although you know that your furniture has a special purpose, your children and your pets may see it as something to play with. Therefore, it is important that you keep your outdoor dining set in the best environment possible so that it doesn’t become a toy. But how do you keep your furniture safe from the hands of your smallest family members? While it can be a challenge, there are ways to do it without having to take drastic measures.

Threats to Your Furniture

Your outdoor furniture is like an animal in the wild with natural predators. As you know, if it is lower on the food chain, it has more enemies to deal with. Likewise, your kids and pets are two natural enemies, which roam your backyard and pose a threat to your furniture. While they won’t try to eat a chair or cushion, they may cause damage due to their activities around the furniture or with direct contact as they play.

Furniture Misery: Child’s Play at Work

Your children are the most precious thing to you, and they’ll remain that way even as they grow up. However, there’s no denying that they can be troublemakers at times, and they aren’t always easy to handle. Aside from things like broken windows and vases, kids are notorious for ruining furniture.

  • Spills– You’ve dealt with this before. Kids like to fill their glasses and cups to the rim, and if they’ve mastered the art of holding it properly, the vessel topples. Spills aren’t always a big problem, but for certain types of material and colours (white), things like fruit punch and sodas can leave difficult-to-remove and unsightly blemishes.
  • Stains – Kids love their crayons and markers. Kids can easily blemish outdoor dining sets with markers, pens, or crayonsThey’ll focus their attention on their colouring books or the pictures they draw rather than the furniture they are sitting on. As a result, an open marker or gel pen might leak onto the furniture, and it may even scratch it. Trying to clean it up is no fun at all!
  • Tears & Scratches – Your kids may even use your outdoor dining set as a playground, so you’ll need to watch out for that. For example, a table might become the new driving lot for toy cars, and you know that this could lead to scratches on the surface.

Making Your Furniture Set Child Proof

If you have children, does this mean that your outdoor furniture is doomed to an existence of ripped fabric and ink stains? Of course not! There are many methods you can use to keep your outdoor dining set safe from your kids’ activities, and they don’t involve huge amounts of time or money.

  • Establish Boundaries! – Keeping your outdoor furniture safe starts with you. You need to set clear boundaries, so that your children know what they are allowed and not allowed to do on your furniture. For example, you might tell them to avoid eating and drinking on certain pieces of furniture. Also, you might have to restrict the use of pens and markers to their own bedrooms, and you might have to do the same with toys and objects that scratch.
  • Protective Finishing – Kids will break rules sometimes, so it’s good to have a backup plan. Stain-resistant coatings and spray-on finishes can be a great way to minimize the appearance of stains. Furniture sets often come with these finishes, but you can always pick up a stain remover as your plan B in the event of a spill or stain.
  • Covers, Coasters, and Mats – A simple and effective way to keep your furniture in good condition, is with protective covering. When your furniture is not in use, you can protect it with a cover, and this works as a deterrent for kids who may get too close. Also, a cover keeps your dining set safe from the elements. While your dining set is in use, make sure that you use mats and coasters to prevent liquids from forming sticky spots on tables.

When Pets Get Too Playful

If you have pets, you most likely view them as precious family members in addition to your kids. They too, however, can be a nuisance around your outdoor dining set, and you should pay close attention to them when they roam nearby.

  • Claws & Scratches – Animals like cats can ruin an outdoor dining set with their claws. Keep them busy!Some animals, especially cats, are known to enjoy using their claws when they don’t need to. If you’ve been scratched by a cat before, you know how powerful their claws are. When they scratch a material like leather, they dig deep, and they can easily tear away at the fabric.
  • Going to the ‘Bathroom’ – While cats love to use their claws, they’re pretty good at using their litter box as a routine. Dogs, and other animals, however, sometimes forget that furniture is not the place to use the ‘bathroom’. When a pet has an accident on your furniture, it leaves more than just a foul smell. It often leads to deep stains that are difficult to remove.

Put Their Paws on Pause

Yes, pets can be like your kids since they aren’t aware of what you’ll have to go through if they mess it up. However, if you have a feisty feline or canine family member, you can still keep your outdoor dining set safe from their activities.

  • Take them to schoolOne way to keep your pets under control is by putting them in training. A good instructor understands what makes animals tick, and they will use effective methods to make sure that pets learn to avoid making your furniture their playground. Remember that pets are pretty good at understanding you when you scold them for certain behaviours. Therefore, don’t be afraid to let them know when they cross the line.
  • Give them a distraction – Pets sometimes attack furniture out of boredom. Therefore, make sure to give your furry friend toys and other objects that occupy their time. A cat post is perfect for your kitty if he or she loves to use their claws, and a chewing ball can be the right distraction for your dog if he or she loves to nibble on fabrics.

Vulnerable Surfaces

There are some types of furniture that have an easier time of sustaining damage. You most likely have at least one or more of these furniture types in your home, so it’s good to know how you can keep them safe.

  • Wood – Prone to spots and blemishes (grease, crayons, paint), and gum spots
  • Leather – Prone to tears (claws, sharp toys) and blemishes (paint, nail polish, ink)
  • Glass – Scratches easily, can break easily if a child or pet accidentally topples glass object (also could lead to serious injury)

Keep your outdoor dining set spot free with coverings and protective finishing

Keep Your Furniture in One Piece

It is certainly a challenge to keep furniture safe from the hands of kids and pets. However, it doesn’t have to be an impossible one! With the right mix of planning, boundaries, and protective measures, you can keep your outdoor dining set in tip top shape. You can keep your items safe from damage without having to spend an excess amount of time or money. All it takes are a few simple measures to keep your set free from the damage of meddling kids and pets. Make the effort to safeguard your set, and you will free yourself from the burdens of ruined furniture!

Having Due Diligence Before Purchasing Your Next Outdoor Furniture Set

Have you ever heard the saying “keeping up with the Joneses”? This cliché refers to the idea of buying things for the sake of having them, not for the purchase itself. The end result of hasty buying and looking for appearance over function can be expensive, wasteful, and frustrating.
When we get a home with a space for
outdoor furniture, be it a patio, a backyard, or a balcony, we’re generally very excited for the new possibilities. 

consumer awareness is important when purchasing outdoor furniture sets

We look at the space and see assorted ideas: pool parties with friends, a barbecue where we can debut our newest masterpiece from the grill, or a place for the kids to run and play. It’s no surprise that we immediately want to decorate our new space and fill it with beautiful pieces of furniture, or assemble exquisite outdoor furniture sets. There are so many options for you to choose from: material, style, size, and price, that it’s easy to get lost in the details. Many shoppers begin to lose vision of the forest for the trees; the big picture is lost for all the small choices. When looking at the many variables, you must always remember to consider the vendor of your purchases. Are they trustworthy? Do they have a good reputation? Will you be struck with a terrible case of buyer’s remorse? Every large purchase comes with an element of risk that must be handled carefully. If you treat picking up your outdoor patio furniture like a military operation, where you focus on getting in and out as quickly as possible, you risk having serious problems with your furniture down the line that can hit you in your wallet and cause chaos. You might be dealing with issues that can plague you for weeks or months: broken furniture, warranties that the vendor refuses to honour, or cheap materials that break under normal use. Before you know it, your dream set has turned into a nightmare. When you visit an outdoor furniture outlet, you may want to take some precautions and do your due diligence in researching the merchant. The alternative can be too expensive, time consuming, and frustrating to take the risk.

What Could Go Wrong?

When you buy your furniture in a hurry, you risk running into problems and suffering many drawbacks. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Spending more money than the furniture you purchased warrants.
  • Buying from a vendor who will not honour warranties or agreements.
  • Buying furniture that is going to break or become uncomfortable within weeks or months.
  • Having to deal with a vendor with terrible customer service, leading to long times playing ‘phone tag’ or sending e-mails that go unanswered.

In the face of such aggravating, expensive, and avoidable problems, it’s important to do some research and make sure you don’t become a victim of scams or substandard products. Make sure you go to an outdoor furniture outlet that you can trust. If you’re not sure where to start on your due diligence, here are some crucial steps.

Ask Around

Check and see if your friends or family have dealt with or heard about this outlet before. People remember bad shopping decisions very clearly; many people will hold a grudge against a company that has done them wrong in the past and will share the news in a heartbeat. If you have friends or family who are experienced with buying outdoor furniture, ask them where they purchased their goods and what they thought of the experience. What did they like? What did they dislike? Is there anything they regretted? Have they had any issues? Having these answers will be valuable for understanding the character and reputation of the outlet you plan to visit.

Check the Web

If you don’t have anyone in your social circle who can answer your questions, don’t panic: Just go online. There are multiple ways that the Internet can give you an idea of your vendor and what problems you have a chance of encountering. Start by searching Twitter and Facebook; these are popular social networks where people will air their grievances or show their appreciation to companies they’ve just dealt with. Search for the names of the outdoor patio furniture stores you plan to visit, and see what people have to say. You might be surprised at their online reception and reputation.

If you can’t find much dirt on Facebook or Twitter, it might be time to check a review site. Some sites aggregate reviews together to create a ranking or a grade. Yelp and the Better Business Bureau are two examples of sites that collect complaints about companies. Keep an eye out for patterns: maybe this company has a history of selling defective products or awful customer service. If it’s happened to other consumers, it can happen to you too.  Outdoor furniture is a fairly high end product, so you want to go into the transaction as prepared as possible; the risk of losing money on poor goods is far too high.Trust your gut during the research process. If a complaint seems damning, then avoid the vendor. Don’t throw money at someone who you don’t trust or respect.


For people who plan to visit an outdoor furniture outlet, there are more concerns to deal with than which material lasts the best and what size table to pick out. Many outlets and vendors deal with unsavoury behaviour, and no one wants to fall victim to these schemes and scams. outdoor furniture outlet can help you choose outdoor patio furnitureTake the time to do your due diligence first. The stakes are high, and you have a lot to lose. Talk to your friends and family, look online, and do some research on your vendor before you make a large purchase. If you spend time on the research then you’ll likely come out ahead and be much happier with your purchase. You deserve to end up with an outdoor set you love!
