In order for your home to be your castle, your refuge, your personal haven or any of the other descriptive terms for a home, it must be furnished in a way that provides comfort and is accommodating to your lifestyle. Generally, there are certain basic pieces of furniture found in most homes. These basic elements can be personalized to a certain degree. However, it is the accent pieces and accessories that give you the creative and decorative freedom to put your personality on display.
The living room furniture you choose should be conducive to the type of activity you anticipate going on in the room. Young children, pets and a carefree lifestyle definitely requires a different type of furniture than a room that will be used in a more reserved and refined manner. Buy what fits your lifestyle. The durability and comfortable that La-Z-Boy chairs and sofas offer make them an ideal choice for a family room.
A cluttered bedroom does not provide the serene, relaxing atmosphere that you need in a bedroom. When buying bedroom furniture, it’s a good idea to purchase furniture that maximizes your storage space. Buying the largest bed that will fit your space can assure that you will sleep more comfortably. When designing your bedroom, create a design that is personally satisfying for you. This is a good place to add a quirky accent chair to your decor or possibly a unique bedside table. It’s also a good location for a comfortable La-Z Boy recliner.
Have Fun With Accessories
Once you’ve placed the furniture in your home, it’s time to have some fun with accessories. Lamps and lampshades are a good place to let your personality shine. A trim modern style lamp is ideal if you have a reserved, sophisticated personality. A frivolous, colorful lampshade with tassels might be your idea of a perfect vintage-like accessory for your home.
Wall art is another way to bring your personality into your home decor. Shopping for textured accessories can be an exhilarating experience. You have rug textures that range from elegant cowhide rugs to nostalgic shag rugs. Towels, bedding and pillows also give you a chance to bring a variety of textures into your decor.
Be sure your basic pieces of furniture provide comfort and fit your lifestyle. Add personality with accessories. Don’t invite stress to be a part of your home decorating experience. Creating your personal retreat should be fun.
