Plastic considerations (aesthetics) are related to the integrated space design. For example, if the furniture will be straight or curved, if space requires tall or low furniture, etc. Finally, as mentioned above, space determines the size of the furniture and also the distribution of the same. The different pieces of furniture have to always be related to space before buying them. Check to see if their sizes are appropriate for the overall design – for example, a sectional may not be the best choice for a small living area. Also, the physical space of the room and the ways furniture can be placed need to be considered, such as the size of a window or proximity to a door.
Is the piece solid and heavy or is it light and fragile? Does the construction of the furniture match its functionality? A fine piece of furniture should last longer, so avoiding light aluminum frames and selecting solid wood could guarantee an extended lifespan. Small items like poufs and stools should be light enough to be moved around the room without scratching and damaging the floor and walls. Also, keep in mind the most commonly used paths throughout the house and purchase furniture that won’t be in your way.
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?
