Create Your Dream Home

Whenever we think of renovating our home, the first thing that comes to mind is to change the furniture and upholstery. Sometimes the entire home needs to be restored but at times only one room needs to be refurbished. At such times do not rush to the nearest store and buy the first decent piece of furniture that you see. One thing is for sure that furniture is like other investments. This is for long term and you need to be sure about a piece of furniture before you decide to buy it and make it a part of your home. If it is the living room, then deciding the d├ęcor depends upon the fact that the family and friends spend a lot of time in this room. Therefore, it should have enough comfortable space for everyone and at the same time reflect your personality. Even if you are alone, you would like to relax and unwind here with a book after a long day at work. So think of comfortable sofa, side tables and a foot rest and other things. Make it as comfortable and cosy as you can.

Similarly, for dining room, the decision depends on the size of the room, size of the family, the eating habits of the family and future expansion plans. Before deciding on the shape of the table and number of chairs, think carefully. The material of the table top and legs and upholstery will depend upon the kind of use that you envisage in future. You can opt for a glass, wood or marble top depending on your choice. Our dining table sets are on the rise and very popular.

At times you can also refurbish the existing furniture and create new pieces out of them. Use strategically placed lights, mirrors and glass objects to make the room appear bigger and brighter. You can use foldable furniture if it is a small space. These pieces are user friendly and can be used when needed and folded away when not in use. A bed-cum-sofa, expandable dining table, foldable patio chairs are ideal for a small space. You can use storage space created especially for small areas. The furniture should fit into your house whether small or big. It should not look out of place. It should not be dirty or torn or broken. The wooden legs of furniture should be carefully covered with rubber tips to avoid scratches on the floor. It is really important to maintain whatever furniture you have properly. Wooden pieces need some dusting and polishing regularly. Mirrors need a different type of delicate treatment. The brass and steel fixtures should be wiped and polished regularly. As far as rubber and plastic are concerned, these should be checked for any wear and tear and should be repaired promptly. The upholstery should be cleaned with an appropriate agent and checked for any spots and tears. If cleaned and repaired immediately, then it will last for years to come. The furniture in your home is an extension of your personality but it has to perform one basic function that it should be used for a particular purpose.

Do not buy any furniture, even if it is the most beautiful one, unless it going to be used in your home. People buy chairs for a lawn and those may never be used, as they do not have time to sit outside on the lawn. Similarly, do not buy a huge dining table unless you have a big enough room to keep it. A very big piece of furniture in a small room will not look good and vice versa. Think carefully and invest the money in a classic piece of furniture. It will last you a life time.
