3 Steps To Choosing Furniture

Thursday, October 26th, 2017

furniture-design-stylesDo you ever feel overwhelmed when you walk into a furniture store or are browsing a furniture store website?

Don’t worry, you’re not alone. With all the different colors, styles, fabrics, names brands, prices, and materials, it can feel like you just got hit with a ton of bricks

But maybe choosing furniture isn’t really as hard as we think it is. There are 3 easy steps to take to know beforehand what to look for. That way when you’re surfing the web or visiting your local furniture store, you know exactly what you want and won’t end up walking around for hours trying to decide.

The steps are as follows:
1. Choose a style.
2. Choose the color(s).
3. Choose the shade of wood you want.

These steps seem pretty simple, right? Yet, online you will find (what feels like) too many different styles to choose from. But I will simplify it for you here for the moment.

So what are you looking for? Are you needing to add that contemporary twist into your home or maybe that rustic feel? First, we need to understand what these different styles really mean.

The Modern Style is what we would consider being from the 19th century till today. It comes about because of the art style, modernism. The furniture is more of a practical nature and is meant to not be excessive. Especially after World War II, when not many people had an excess of anything. It is usually compact and multifunctional, making it perfect for apartments and smaller homes.
