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.

White is the new black, is that what I heard? In any case, it is the pure color, the color that adds dynamics and simply complements everything. White wicker has a long tradition in colonial settings. Beliani is now using it on a modern outdoor furniture set, that has been most successful all around the globe in its espresso color – the XXL. The silver grey cushions underline the hip style of the white wicker sectional.

Very popular are combinations of two materials, often wood and metal. We see aluminum or stainless steel with teak or faux wood. While the wood keeps the style down to earth and natural, the stainless steel look brings in the modern touch. It’s a great combo that looks fantastic.

resin wicker chairs with blanketsCozy in Fur

In Zurich, Switzerland a big trend this spring seems to be to have fur or fur-like shaggy blankets over the chairs. They are cozy and inviting despite the somewhat cool weather. The chairs underneath are your classic iron with wood slats fold-ups or resin wicker for more comfort. Space is scarce, so tables and chairs are small; mostly in bistro settings.
