Choosing the Right Furniture For Your Home

Charles Barr Furniture Collections

Finding the right furniture for your home can be a trying task. It is after all, an investment you literally will be living with day in day out. So how do you go about finding the perfect furniture for your dream home?

Furniture isn’t just there to provide a function e.g. storage or display, it’s much more than that. It’s the finishing touches to your home, it makes a statement about your personality, your likes and dislikes, your personal tastes. Getting the right furniture scheme requires careful consideration about what you want your home to say about you.

Piecing Your Furniture Together

Interiors, like fashion, are full of short-lived trends and fads but unlike clothes, you can’t keep switching dining tables and sofas with the change of seasons! A much better bet is to go with classic, timeless furniture pieces as these won’t date and age your home prematurely.

To create a seamless link between all rooms in your home, choose key furniture pieces in the same material/style. Mahogany and walnut are classic woods that will add character to your home without being overbearing. Plus they complement any décor so you’re free to change your home’s colour scheme as often as you like!

For a truly authentic look, instead of buying your furniture from the high street or online, you can go to traditional furniture reproducers who will spend time and effort on creating beautifully crafted designs for your home. At 

Bespoke Furniture Designers

The best thing about going direct to a furniture maker is that you can get bespoke designs that fit with your needs. So if you have a tight space where you’d like a bedside cabinet or a side table, or an awkward corner to fill, a furniture maker can help you achieve this, unlike the standard-sized models on the high street. And you can get a number of different furniture pieces made in the same style for display throughout your home to create that oh-so important unified space throughout your home.

Whether you’re looking for that perfect intricately carved bookcase, 8 seater dining table, or eye-catching display cabinet and whether you want it designed in a Corinthian, modular, regal or traditional furniture style a bespoke furnture manufacturer can help you create the ultimate furniture to complete your dream home. You might find that perfect finishing touch while you’re browsing online or get some much needed inspiration for your own furniture ideas that you can take to a furniture manufacturer.

Whatever you decide, just remember that choosing the right furniture for your home is a significant investment and not a decision that should be taken lightly. These pieces need to be sturdy enough to withstand decades of use as well as fitting into changing the ever changing tastes and styles of the world of interior design! So think classic, elegant and above all, good quality and you’re already on the right track.
