Reflect Your Style, Not Fashion

Furnishing your home can be a highly planned, very expensive activity, or it can be something that happens in a rather haphazard way over time.

Most people when they first set up home don’t have a lot of cash. Family and friends will often kindly give you their cast off home furniture, you buy what you can afford, and then one day you find that you just have a mish mash of styles and colours which doesn’t actually reflect your taste.

While a family is growing up then buying fancy furniture is not a priority, but there comes a stage when the birds have flown the nest, perhaps you’ve moved to a smaller house, and one person turns to the other and says, “We need brand new furniture.”

Reflect Your Style, Not Fashion

Choosing what’s right for you

Buying furniture is a major expense, so it deserves some thought, especially if you are furnishing an entire house. It pays to spend time online and in local stores looking to see what’s available. You’ll probably have a fairly settled idea of styles that you like. Perhaps you favor clean, cool contemporary colors and shapes, or maybe you yearn for English Country House style. If you don’t have a fixed idea of what kind of furniture you’d like, there are many style magazines, books and online sites to give you plenty of ideas.

Plan your furniture according to your lifestyle

Don’t just rush out and buy the first things you see, or buy what other people have. Consider the way you live. For example, if you always eat in front of the TV with a tray on your lap, and never entertain, why would you want a big dining table? Perhaps someone in your family is sick or elderly, in which case, furnishing a really comfortable bedroom for that person will be important, making it a room where people can spend time and keep the person company. Maybe you are an avid reader, in which case, you might want a library rather than a TV room, or you might even turn your main living space into a model railway layout, if that’s your thing!

Make a list of how you use your home. The way you live will dictate the home furniture you put into it. Don’t be afraid to be unconventional – design magazines such as “World of Interiors” will quickly show you that many of the most beautiful homes are entirely individual and break all the normal rules.

Good sources for home furniture

Don’t limit your search for home furniture to conventional stores. Auctions are a wonderful place to find unusual and good value pieces. Second hand stores and charity shops often have amazing bargains, and it’s fun to seek out very unique items which will reflect your own personal style and make your home look very special. Places like ebay and Craig’s List are also a must for the home furniture buyer on a budget.

Refurbishing your old home furniture

Are you tired of your same old scuffed and worn out home furniture? Could your end tables need a good sanding a new coat of varnish? Maybe you could spruce up that old couch with some new fabric or fluffier cushions. With the abundance of websites that offer information on the subject, you can complete just about any refurbishing without spending a lot of money. There are a thousand ways to refurbish your old home furniture but just a few simple do it yourself projects can add new life to you old things.

Working with Wooden Home Furniture While working with wood, you want to remember to strip your piece of any worn varnish or peeling paint, whether it be an end table, shelf, or lamp stand. You can usually find paint and varnish remover at the local hardware store. You will also need sand paper to sand away any splinters. Once you strip and sand your piece, you can then begin to varnish or paint it. Put down newspaper before you start and be careful when working over carpet. They call it stain for a reason.

As with paint, there are several shades of varnish that you can choose from, from dark to light. Choose carefully, depending on the kind of wood that you are working with and the color of the rest of the home furniture you own. If you are painting with colored paint, consider contrasting or complimenting rather than completely matching. Reupholstering Old Home Furniture There are several things that you can do with couches and chairs, and even kitchen chairs. Start by taking the cushions off and repairing any support beams that you have in your home furniture. Then you can easily strip the fabric on your couches and sew or staple new fabric back onto it. Don’t forget to make new covers for the cushions and consider getting some new foam if it is old or worn out. One of the most common ways to refurbish kitchen chairs is to remove the bottom supports and replace it with new wood. (Some chairs are made with metal frames and wooden supports).

Then you can tack on new cushioning and sew your fabric right on to it. For a multiple aspect project, check out recushioning a wooden chair – this lets you scrape, sand, stain, tack and sew all in one. Awesome! Refurnishing your home furniture is not complicated, although for certain projects, you may choose to scrap the entire thing or start over with new materials. Make sure that you’ve researched what you’re doing before you begin and you can’t go wrong.
