Space is generally at a premium and as such it is important to plan the bedroom furniture as specifically and clearly as you can. It’s a space that needs to be comfortable and relaxing and as such the furnishings should be able to do this for the room. Many choose a theme and go with it throughout so, for example, if its wood, then the bed, storage, seating and any dressing tables are all the same and provide a clear theme for the room. The best advice is to start with the bed as the room is for sleeping and as such the bed will form the center piece of the entire room. There are a great range of choices such as those at Reinforcedbeds.co.uk and you must be able to check them to see exactly how sturdy they are and if they will suit your needs.
Sitting rooms and lounge
Comfort is key, but you also don’t want those who visit you being unable to sit up and converse with you. Again, it’s about the dominant use of the room and if it’s for relaxing and watching television and movies then you need to keep this in mind when choosing the furnishings. Recliner seats are trending and will be able to provide a multi-use seating arrangement but will require space to use them properly.
Many moms don’t really think of the kitchen furniture and it normally comprises of a kitchen counter and a few stools or a cottage kitchen table with chairs. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this, as long as it’s a solution that has been arrived at as part of a planned process and suits your kitchen use needs. Yes, it’s generally a space used for cooking, but the kitchen is also a social space and unless you have an open plan kitchen and living space, then you need to be able to include furniture that will allow for others to be in the space while you cook – and to be comfortable. The overly high bar stools at the kitchen counter or breakfast nook, may be fine for the kids to have breakfast at, but won’t engender great adult conversation and relaxation while you prepare a festive meal.
It’s a space that may often be neglected until the weather is great and you wish you could be sat in the sun. So, you will need to plan this, whether it’s just the patio furniture or an entire garden room under cover. Does the furniture need to be waterproof, where will the cushions go when it rains, and so on?
All the furnishings on your home need to be well thought through; however, there are those aspects or rooms that are essential for more than just keeping up with the trendy interior decor trends out there – these are the high use rooms that have specific uses.
