Hooray! Your renovation is complete and you’re champing at the bit to resume family life in your newly remodeled piece of paradise. The paint is fresh, your new fixtures sparkle, along with your brand spanking new appliances! But that’s not the end of the process. It’s time for a different kind of renovation; transforming your home with brand new (or even second hand) furniture. Selecting furniture and decor that reflect your personality and tastes will make your home a place that you can call your own.
Here are 5 key points to consider when selecting your furniture.
Selecting Furniture After Renovating
Some people like the darkness of mahogany, while others prefer the purity of cedar. Something can be said for the light plainness of maple, the permanence of oak, or the glow of cherry. From birch, walnut and pine to elm, teak and willow, there are so many choices when it comes to selecting furniture that’s made of wood.
When our interior designer helps you plan your renovation, they may recommend consistency. Mixing mahogany and light birch may create too much contrast. If you mix woods, keep the colours in alignment for a single room. You can always change it up from room to room when selecting furniture.
You might appreciate a classic style of furniture, while other people are drawn to more contemporary tables and chairs. Maybe the retro Art Deco style are your thing, while Victorian pieces may appeal to your partner. We all have different tastes, and it’s awesome to incorporate different styles when selecting furniture for your home.
Second hand or phased approach
If cash is tight, opt for second hand pieces, or gradually refurnish your home, room by room. You don’t have to get it all done in one feel swoop. A bit-by-bit approach can also help you think about the style you’d like to choose when selecting furniture for certain rooms. Even just selecting a couple of pieces can help you decide your tastes and preferences when it comes to refurnishing a room.
If you’re finding it hard to establish a creative mindset, you’re going to need some inspiration. Checkout the property section of the West Australian, even tear out the pages and paste them into a scrapbook if you need to. Having said that, you cannot go past Instagram and Pinterest for sensational furniture ideas. Once you’ve figured out your taste, order online or if you’re more visually oriented, get into a store for selecting furniture.
Make it fun!
New beginnings should be celebrated! Be sure to embrace the experience when you refurnish your home. The fun is not just in the destination, but also in the journey.
