You’d be surprised by how much the furniture you choose can impact a room. Just like a specific paint colour can make a room feel warm and open or dark and congested, your furniture could be the difference between an open, spacious room and an uncomfortably claustrophobic room. That’s why furniture selection is so important.
Here are three things to consider for your furniture selection:
- Matching styles: One of the key things to consider for your furniture selection is whether the piece is going to match or complement the overall style of the room and your house in general. Is it an antique bookcase standing out in a modern home, or will you choose the more modern bookcase that accents the living room? It’s important for your furniture to match your overall style, or you risk the room feeling disconnected.
- Arrangement: The arrangement of your furniture is also an important aspect of furniture selection. It could be the difference between making the room feel open and welcoming or tight and closed off. You’ll want to arrange your furniture in a way that makes sense for the room.
- Functionality: While the other two aspects are important, the functionality of your furniture is possibly the most important aspect of furniture selection. If you’re choosing a sofa, for example, you’ll want it to function in more ways than just adding an accent to the room. You’ll want to be sure that it will look great while also serving as comfortable seating for the room.
