LIVELY Living Room

Undoubtedly, the living room is the centre of the home. Here we spend the most time relaxing after a long day, entertaining guests or having a great time with homies. This space sets the tone to the overall home decor. And, as long as we spend a lot of time here, the same decor day after day might be annoying. Well, we’re not saying about the total rearrangement every month or two! But simple updates can become vital to refresh your hub. Need few ideas? We are ready and willing to assist.

Throws and Pillows. If the furniture seems like looking dull, dress it up! Add few bright spots with the set of throws or pillows. Or both! It’s an easy step, but still it makes a huge difference. You can even shift the style with those accents – make the room look more funky or chic, or modern-stylish. If you need some cheer, use the pillows with joyful prints or short inspiring words. Mixing the unexpected will make it definitely a focal spot. Traditional style room demands the paired pillows, contemporary style allows to keep it odd-numbered.

Table Set. Coffee or cocktail table is an essential component of your living room. Moreover, it is a right place to create an eye-catching spot. Decorate the table with few basic elements to make it lively. A three-dimensional look is created by placing a nice tray on your coffee table, few books, and a candle or vase for height. There’s no denying the decorative statues!

Bookcase. Too much old stuff, not much use of it? Clear off the dusty shelves and create a space for your souvenirs and decor pieces showcase. Open bookcase is an ideal place for any accessories, from plants to figurines. Have you removed your encyclopaedias to the trash bin yet? No need! Use your books together with the decorative accessories to get more into sophisticated look. If you are more into bookworm’s stuff and you’ve got many books on your shelves, try rearranging them by color or create a “wave” style “playing” with the height of the books. This will add visual interest to the room.

Add bright colors and fresh plants to bring life into your living space. A few simple tricks – and your favorite living space becomes fabulous and adorable. Need more bril ideas? Follow FurnitureCart‘s blog – every new week we’ve got something exciting to share with you.

Lights Up! 4 Ideas To Shed Light On Your Dark Rooms

The home seems to be a little dark. But you do like the way the furniture is arranged and do not want to change the house decor completely. Familiar situation? Then lighten it up with our few simple tricks! Make your home brighter and welcoming without changing a lot.

First and crucial, ever-winning idea is about the mirrors. Create the fresh look with the space-expanding and light-reflecting pieces. Place it at any wall (despite the one with the window) to let your room get lit. It is not necessary to place huge mirrors, but medium-sized (dresser mirrors) or sculptural ones, which double as wall art. A nice full-length mirror in a bedroom is a great accessory and a hot trend, by the way.

Second – window-treatment! Forget about the heavy dark curtains and take advantage of any natural light available at your house. If still privacy is an issue and you need those curtains to keep you hidden from the world outside – then let the curtains bring the splash of bright color to your place or choose the creamy or light-blue colored drapes.

White decorative items, splashes of bright-colored spots and glass accessories will keep reflecting the available lights. Make a focal point at one or all of the occasional tables, dresser, in the glass curio or open shelves. That counts as an idea No.3!

And, finally, in the fourth place (but still not least): take care of the evening lights. Use lamp set to add few more evening lights in the dark room. Furnish a living room conversation nook with the couple of accent chairs and a floor lamp or an end table with a lamp. Use clear and transparent ceiling lamps, pendant lighting, wall sconces. Give pride of place to chandelier with an elegant glassware if used for a formal dining room. Find few more awesome ideas on dining room furniture arrangement.

Dining Room Furniture Arranging

Find our few smart advice and use one or two which suit your space the best!

FurnitureCart will find the way to keep you busy and entertained when rearranging furniture in your dining room.

Rectangular dining room

Duplicate the room shape with the same dining table shape to maximize seating and for a balanced overall view. A rectangular table or boat-shape dining table with the same proportions as the room itself will create the harmony to the eye and make the most of the space.

Combine dining chairs, benches, and settees, whatever you might like. On the perimeter of the dining room include the storage pieces like cabinets or bookcases. With the cabinets, you have to keep in mind enough space for the doors to open. Frame the dining space with the rectangular rug that contrasts with the flooring and the general interior palette.

Oversized space 

If the space is huge enough to build a football field, don’t hurry to buy the dining table for the whole football team, if you need only one for 4 or 6 persons. You have a wonderful option to build one or two conversation zones or a coffee nook with the accent chairs and coffee and cocktail tables and floor lamps.

You might find functional to have chairs that can easily be brought up to the table for extra dining seating. Add curio or buffet at one wall, as the good focal point.

Shapes and personal touch

All too similar chairs work good for conventionalists. For more fun and cosy atmosphere try to vary the dining chairs in shape, material and scale. Try it by mixing chairs with and without arms or chairs with high and low backs.

If you prefer no-corner tables, apply another shape. Circular or round tables are suitable for tight dining spaces or square rooms. Oval tables work well in rectangular dining rooms. No-corner tables promote easy-flow conversations, so don’t hesitate to add some warmth and openness to the dining space.

Composite Wood Products

Earlier this month FurnitureCart team has started the Ultimate Guide to Wood Furniture. We have discovered what kinds of wood are usually used for furniture production and common wood finishes. You are welcome to check them out, if you are a newcomer at our blog.

Today we continue with the third and last chapter of our Wooden Furniture Guide. And today we will talk about the composite wood products.

Most probably, when buying the wooden furniture, the customer pays attention to solid woods in the specifications and the list of materials used for the dining set or bed. Actually, we have to be frank: nowadays very often plywood, MDF, and particle board are made of a high quality. So, there is no use disregarding these manufactured wood products. Sometimes it can be difficult to differ a composite wood piece and a solid wood piece of furniture, if the composite wood piece comes covered with a high-quality veneer. Let us discover together the three types of manufactured wood products.

Plywood is flexible, though strong material resistant to cracking, warping, shrinking or swelling. Plywood is made of thin layers of wood that are glued together and pressed. To make the plywood furniture stronger, wood grain of adjacent layers is rotated up to 90 degrees to one another.

Medium-density fibreboard (MDF) is made by means of breaking down hardwood and softwood materials, and then combining it with resin, glue or wax to form panels under high temperature and pressure. As a result, there appears a product that is stronger and more solid than any other wooden materials. Usually it is used for cabinets, cupboards and wardrobes, shelving and bookcases. Though it is heavy material, it is quite easy to cut and finish.

Particle board, also known as low-density fiberboard (LDF) or chipboard, is made of wood chips, sawmill shavings or sawdust, and bound together by synthetic resin or another suitable binder, and pressed. Actually, the process of manufacturing is similar to how MDF is made. Particle board is a part of budget-friendly furniture (kitchens, dining room furniture) and flooring; it is common-used in budget furniture that has a veneered or laminate faсade.

Usually MDF composite wood products do not contain knots or rings, as the natural woods do, making it more uniform to finish, as well as in service. Plywood is frequently used to create curved surfaces as it can easily bend with the grain. Particle board made the huge revolution in wooden furniture design once it appeared, and still continues to make it evolve, by making the prices lower for the final customer.
