Furniture must be made of a material that suits the use. Some materials are harder and more durable, like wood and certain upholstered fabrics, and others are more delicate. A lacquered table has a luxurious look but won’t stand up to family dinners over time without a lot of maintenance. In this case, hardwood or laminate is the best option. Something similar happens with fabrics: a faux leather chair is suitable for heavy use and easy to clean, while chenille is always delicate and easier to stain.
Once you’ve defined what furniture is needed, size and shape come into play. Practicality, aesthetics, style and the space available should be considered. Practical considerations are directly related to the furnitures function, although specifications for each piece should be defined – for example, how many drawers are needed in a chest of drawers? How many guests will the dining table need to support?
Pick furniture with built-in storage to limit clutter. Typically, small homes are short on places to stash things. Thats why its so valuable to find furniture with storage included. Look for tables with drawers or shelves and ottomans with hidden compartments. Or a Coffee Table that double up as extra seatings when you have more visitors.
