shutterstock_267503579If you are replacing or adding new furniture then there are many things to consider. While much of it depends on the individual floor plans, personal style and objectives, there are things to consider that are important to think about regardless of where you are in the process of building your home, living room, or furniture collection.


When choosing furniture, make sure that you think about all the different reasons you use that piece of furniture. For example, you may want to double your television area with a board game table so that the couches can be used for either or both. You can double many types of furniture including beds, benches, tabletops and more with and area for storage. Having the extra storage can be very helpful, especially if there is limited storage in that particular room.

Right Size and Shape

The functionality is important but so is the overall design of the entire room. Make sure you choose furniture that works together to create the layout you are looking for. This means finding couches that are the right length, width, depth and shape. You may wish to put in two couches rather than an L-shaped couch.

Matching the Floors & Walls

When selecting the style of your furniture, be sure to choose something that will match the rest of your home. Consider the colors, patterns and styles that are used around the house so that you can match your furniture to that. You want to select a color that will complement the floors and walls.
