Buying new furniture is exciting as it gives you an opportunity to change a space. However, furniture can be an expensive investment and therefore here are a few tips on how to make the right decision.
Inspiration – You should create a visual of what you want your space to look like. This can be as easy as looking online and finding inspiration in the form of colors, themes, and styles that suit your personality.
Beyond the basics – Although the bed is the main focal point of a bedroom, depending on your space you could look at chairs, a coffee table or a couch to make your space more versatile.
Shop within your theme – If you stay in line with your chosen theme, you will find it easy to select and buy pieces that complement each other.
Measure twice – Larger furniture like a bed, wardrobe or couch may not always fit in your space. Therefore remember to measure your space at least twice and mark out the areas with a tape measure. Make sure you leave sufficient space to walk around your room easily.
Re-purpose – Re-purposing furniture is a great way to save money and change your space. Look at items that could use a fresh coat of paint and new furnishings.
Good placement – Good placement will ensure your room has balance. This placement should take into account the windows, doors, wall lengths and ceiling heights of the room.
