Keep in mind that every piece of furniture you like isn’t necessarily the right fit for your home. Keep function, durability, necessity, and aesthetics in mind when shopping. Of course, the most important thing is that you enjoy your furniture, but balance affinity with objectivity and look at the space, measure your room and furniture pieces, and evaluate what you already have before you throw everything out. By keeping these things in mind, you can easily create a great-looking space that complements your lifestyle.
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.
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.
