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.
Each room or space of the house has specific uses and therefore needs specific furniture. These spaces are organized according to their activities: the dining room to eat, the living room to rest or as a meeting place, the bedroom to sleep, and so on. If you’re starting to make your list of furniture, start by deciding what type of furniture you need depending on the room and thinking about alternatives. For example, you can opt for bedside tables in your sleeping area or go a different route. You might want to hide the TV away or not want one in your bedroom at all or desire a reading area with a cozy seat and good lighting. Of course, everything is also subject to the square footage you have in each room.
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?
