Choosing home furniture items can be a lot of fun – and also kind of a nightmare. It can be difficult to find useful, comfortable pieces that reflect your personal style and combine to create a cohesive interior. You also likely won’t want to throw everything out, and that brings about the question of which pieces to keep, reupholster, or otherwise modify to fit with the look of your room. In short, choosing furniture requires consideration of a number of both practical and aesthetic factors.
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.
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?
