The older you get, the more aware you are of how your living space looks and feels. Like many other adults, you probably still have at least one room in your home put together with mismatched hand-me-downs—furniture and trinkets from family and friends, items you have either become used to seeing or can’t get rid of for one reason or another. Now is the time to create a home that is uniquely yours, filled with furniture and home accessories that reflect your personal style… but you don’t know where to start.
Choosing the right furniture style for your Hilo, HI home and decorating a room with accessories is easy when you know what to look for. Read on for our tips and suggestions!
How to choose a furniture style
It’s crucial that you decide on a home style that works for you, your lifestyle and the interior look of your living space. For example, if you desire a more traditional style, then quality wood furniture with a classic feel may be for you. If your style is closer to modern and you live in a smaller space, then check out furniture with sleek lines and lighter colors. The hardest thing about dressing up your home is filling it with furniture and décor without cluttering the space, but you can do it with a plan in hand, a budget in mind and a little patience:
- Sketch drafts: Grab a pencil and paper and get drawing! A simple sketch of the room and the furniture pieces you want can give you an idea of how it will all come together.
- Measure the room: Make sure to take accurate measurements of your space. Take these numbers with you when you go furniture shopping so you know what will fit. Better yet, add the dimensions to your room sketch for reference.
- Pick pieces you’ll use: Avoid buying on impulse—only buy pieces you know you can use in a specific room. Remember, it’s best in the long run to choose function over just looks.
- Figure out the size of the furniture: Once you measure the size of the room, focus on choosing pieces that work well within those dimensions. Keep in mind that smaller pieces look better in small spaces (for example, a gigantic sectional will dominate a small room).
How to choose home décor
When you choose a décor that reflects your desires, your home will burst alive with your personal style. The easiest place to start is color. Choosing a color palette comes down to personal choice, but try matching décor to the colors and patterns of the furniture upholstery in the room.
Another tip is to add the right kind of detail, but do this after you have a good idea of the furniture you want for your space. Accent pieces that are similar in color and style will pull the space together, and the right lighting can add warmth. Also, choose a bold statement piece and put it in plain sight.
