When it comes to designing the interior of your home, you likely want your home to look like the ones you see in magazines or better than them.
With that said, you may be wondering, exactly how should you go about buying “matching” furniture in order to get the look that you want. We will now look at 3 tips on how you can make sure that all of your decor and furniture complement one another and don’t look mismatched.
1. Never Make The Mistake Of Buying All Your Furniture In One Store
Many people make this mistake and even I did so a couple of years ago. So, if you’ve already made this mistake, don’t sweat it.
The reason why most people make this common mistake is because they see the featured furniture in a catalogue and simply get all that they see.
This is one of the easiest ways to decorate any space without having to think too hard. However, if you make this mistake, you’ll have a living space that doesn’t feel like your own and it will even feel quite awkward. After all, you probably don’t want to live in a space that looks and feels like a showroom.
Now, the main reason why people go this route in the first place is because they are not aware that the furniture wouldn’t just automatically match their home and style or because they are unsure how to actually buy different pieces of furniture from various stores and properly match them.
With that said, we will now look at how you can easily select furniture that will go well together.
2. Decide On A Style & Constantly Refer To It
In order to buy furniture successfully, you should first start by choosing your particular style and then use it as a guideline for buying furniture.
You can start by finding photos or videos of the style that you want. You can even create a style board where you get different pictures of the particular style that you want and post them on the board. Read these One Kings Lane furniture reviews for inspiration.
After you’ve created your style board, all you need to do is look at it before you buy any furniture. By looking at furniture and your style board, you would be able to see whether it would fit in with the style or not. Once the answer is yes, then you can purchase it. If the furniture doesn’t fit in with the style, then don’t buy it.
3. Choose Furniture That Goes Well With The Floor (Such As Wood/ Wood-Inspired)
This particular tip isn’t as well known, but it will help you to select furniture that looks fantastic in a particular room/space. You should select furniture according to the color and type of flooring that you have. This is relevant to whatever type of flooring that you have, including wooden floors or floors that mimic wood finishes.
As you know, the flooring would cover the largest area of any space and by selecting furniture that goes well with it, will make your space look more put together.
In the event that you have flooring that is carpet or not wood or wood inspired, then ensure that the style that you previously chose is complementary to the color of the flooring that you actually do have. Make sure to always reference your style board so that the furniture easily complements whatever type of floors you have.
