Furnishing Your Home
The furniture that you have in your home is what sets the tone of the entire house. From trendy to time tested, there are many styles you can choose, not to mention different fabrics and materials. While choosing the furniture in your home does have to do with falling emotionally in love with a piece, you also have to consider the way the piece was made, the practicality of it in your home, and living with it. Here are a few ways you can tell if a piece will fit in your home.
Decide What You Like
Before even stepping foot into the furniture store, you need to think about the pieces you want, and what style they need to fit. This will help you stay on task and within budget. It's important to look at many different furniture pieces and decide what you like. Do you like rustic pieces with exposed wood and natural fabrics? Maybe you're more into plush, luxurious fabrics with bold metallic accent pieces.
Start With Size
You should also take a look at your living space and think about what will realistically fit in your space. You want plenty of navigating space in your home, and you don't want to be constantly running into corners or tripping over furniture feet. There are some online layout programs to help you see exactly what your furniture will look like from an overhead view in your space. This can help because you can know what you really have room for. Before you go to the furniture store, take measurements of your space so you know if that nightstand will actually fit between the side of your bed and the wall. You will also want to take the measuring tape with you so you can measure the pieces as well.
Do the Care Requirements Match Your Lifestyle?
This is one of the final details you'll want to think about before making any large purchases. Every piece of furniture will have a different set of requirements when it comes to the care of it. Before you make a large investment, think about the way this piece will fit in your life. If you have a dog, you will want to make sure that it's hair will either blend into the color of a couch or is easily wiped off. You also wouldn't want to choose a piece of furniture that could be easily torn to shreds by their claws. If you love the look of all wood pieces, do you have the time it takes to appropriately clean and condition the wood? Just know before making a purchase, every piece of furniture will need a different type of care - are you able to maintain that?
