Do you want to make your home look even better with your choice of furniture? Your furniture can either make your home look dull, or fun and exciting. I know which I’d rather! These interesting furniture style tips for your home will help you to create a look that you love:
Create A Contrast With Shapes
Some say you should match the shapes of your furniture whatever style and pattern you choose, and in some cases, this can make them more cohesive looking. However, you don’t have to do this if you don’t want to. Mixing hard furniture with soft furniture, and leggy styles with blocky styles can actually make a room look more interesting. Make sure you pay attention to the shapes you use!
Create Cool Colour Combinations
You can create many cool colour combinations when trying to style your furniture. You can use coloured cushions, framing them with contrasting sofas for dramatic effect. If you’re not sure which colour combinations to go for, you can use a colour wheel to help you decide. They can be great when you’re looking for both matching and contrasting colours.
Mix And Match Your Furniture
Too much of one thing in the home is a bad idea. Learn how to mix and match your furniture to create a cool look. You can mix colour, style, pattern, anything you like. There are no rules! All you need to do is find a way to make everything look kind of cohesive, so your decor ties in well together.
Mix Up The Patterns You Use
Mix up the patterns you use to help you create a more interesting look. This will depend on how daring you are, but you can get away with mixing most patterns if you’re clever.
Pull Furniture Away From The Wall
Having furniture pushed up against the walls is the norm in most homes. Many do this because they think it makes more space, but it’s actually a way to make your room look more claustrophobic. Pulling your furniture away from the wall can open the space up and even make it look more social.
Try Doing It In Pairs
Mixing pieces of furniture is great, but it can often go wrong unless you’re smart. Try doing this in pairs. For example, if you find a chair you absolutely love for the dinner table, buy 2 rather than one. Then you can buy 2 of a different style and so on.
Use Texture To Add Depth
Texture is an absolute must if you want to add lots of depth to your home. Including lots of different texture in different ways will make it look more interesting and professional.
