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.
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.
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.
