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?
Some types of furniture have exposed wood and the colours can alter with time. If you want to avoid future problems like fading wood, you can apply UV resistant finishes on wooden surfaces. In areas that will be used frequently, it is better to choose a slightly darker fabric colour. Also, if you have toddlers and pets, you may want to reconsider delicate and light fabric in general.
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.
