Be it the living room, the dining space, or the bedroom, a color-coordinated setup always creates a memorable impression. And when you say ‘color-coordinated’, it means each and every element of the house carry a thematic color and complements each other. In other words, the home décor actually gets elevated with a color coordinated setup that includes your furniture as well.
Color is one of the key elements of the overall aesthetics of a home. In fact, it is the color theme of the house that actually defines what sort of furniture one should buy so that everything looks coordinated and there is no ‘odd space’ that a guest may point out.
If you are moving in to your new house, or you are the owner looking for some renovation, you should first finalize the color theme before stepping out to buy furniture. Yes, it must not be the other way round.
And if you are confused about how to set up the color theme and pick furniture that suits your aesthetics, here is a ready-reckoner for you.
- Plan ahead
Decide aesthetics first. Before visiting a furniture shop, first draw an image in your mind and think of the overall look and feel you want in your home, your living room, your dining room, etc. If it is living room, think of the elements you want to place that may offer comfort to your guests and take care of the space as well. You would not want to clutter your living space. Similarly plan the aesthetics of other areas as well.
- Calculate Available Space
Yes, it is important to know beforehand how much space you have for furniture. Once you have decided on other elements and the color theme, calculate the overall space you are left with. This will help you plan the size of your furniture. A 5-seater L-shaped sofa may not fit in a 12×15 feet living room which already has a cupboard, two flower vases and a book shelf.
- Define the purpose
This may sound odd, but you should always define the purpose of the furniture before buying. For example, if you do not have a separate dining area and the dining table has to be accommodated into the living room itself, you would not want a bulky sofa that may consume all your space. Similarly, if you want to create an additional arrangement to accommodate your guest at night, you may opt for a sofa-cum-bed than simply a sofa.
- Follow the Plan
Once everything is finalized, select that furniture that fulfill all these specifications, like the color theme, space and purpose. As mentioned earlier, it is important to set everything as per the theme.
- Consult an Expert
In case you are still confused on how to move ahead towards choosing furniture that suits the aesthetics, you should consult the experts, for instance, Couchlane.
