It’s very practical to select furniture and furnishings that you could use in any room in your home. Read these tips on choosing furniture and accessory pieces that can work well in small or large rooms, offer storage, and can be moved around the house when you need to.

Tips of Home Furnishing:

• If your new home is in a pre-planned community, check out the developer’s model home for pieces you like. They may be a bit worn, but often the developer will sell off the home’s furniture after a period of time. It’s a great way to get room sets that are already coordinated.

• When furnishing a living room or family room, choose 2 loveseats rather than one huge sofa. They’ll be easier to move and can be used forming a corner seating area, opposite each other to create a conversation spot, or separately in different rooms of your home.

• When looking at used furniture – or any used furnishings – don’t think of what they look like now, but what they could look like with a little refurbishing. Maybe that coffee table wouldn’t fit your living room now, but sand it down and add a coat of stain and it might not be so bad.

• Be creative with tables. Choose interesting bases and use plate glass for the top. Or make your own side tables (round or rectangular) of plywood, then cover with an under a cloth of felt (for softness) and a decorative tablecloth of coordinating fabric. Use these in a living room or as nightstands by a bed. View full article »

So what exactly is southwestern home décor and how can you get it into your own home? Well, to begin with, southwestern home décor reflects the southwest and all its best traits. You’ll get colorful throw rugs, gorgeous wall hangings, and if you look hard enough you can even find great kitchen accessories as well.

If you’re thinking about bringing in southwestern home décor into your home what you need to see is whether it would fit in with your existing décor or whether it would clash horribly. Almost all southwestern home décor ranges come in bright and eye-catching colors, as well as stunning designs and motifs.

So if your existing furniture would clash with any of these lovely pieces you can do one of two things. First up you could always just throw out every single piece of ratty and unwanted furniture that you have and replace it with gorgeous pieces of southwestern home décor. Or you could always just buy only one or two pieces of the southwestern home décor range and match it selectively to your existing pieces of knick-knacks.

Personally speaking, I would just love to replace everything I already have since there’s some wear and tear on them, but in the real world, that’s just not possible. For one thing, it would just be way over my budget, and for another, I would rather not have to listen to a lecture from my mother about waste. I’ve found that you can get away from your friends but not from your mother!

Besides, I’m also a little relieved that I didn’t give in to my first impulse and redecorate all in a southwestern home décor style. Granted that it does look nice, but sometimes I also like the peace and quiet that some of my other pieces of furniture bring about in me. Therefore I have now come up with the perfect solution and have instead resorted to buying one-off pieces that catch my attention and dotting my home with those instead. View full article »
