The first factor in deciding whether a piece of furniture stays or goes is its function. Ask yourself what furniture is needed – the different activities carried out in a particular room require specific furniture (beds for bedrooms, seating for a living room, etc.). Consider each person in your home – does one person love a cozy lounge chair? Do you need extra storage for all of your children’s toys? After thinking about those basic questions, pay special attention to the following aspects.
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.
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.
