When Accent Furniture Plays The Main Role

Accent furniture is supposed to stand out, as it complements the room decor. Well, it is clear, as the meaning of the word ‘accent’ is emphasis. Any furniture piece called ‘accent’ goes far beyond functionality only. It is the decorative piece above all. Actually, you may not even have a lot of practical need for it, but it mostly serves as an eye-catcher, the focal point giving the zest to your room design.

How to find the right accent piece and find out whether you need it at all in your space, you might ask. The key idea is to find something that delights your eye and gives your home something extra to make a statement. We, the FurnitureCart team, are here to give you few inspirational ideas that might work well for your lovely home.

Let’s start from the easiest part. Select small accent tables, that play a big role. No matter whether an unusual design of the newly bought set or DIY upgrade to the good old occasional tables – it works great both with emphasis and function. Make a twist in your room’s design with ornaments, glass, mirror, or work on your old piece by painting or making an inlay. These tables can be used or transferred to any room of your house – from living rooms to bedrooms. Small but elegantly designed bedside table can become the star of your bedroom.

A large and imposing furniture piece can simply become an accent piece. A rich curio, armoire or china cabinet will play the main part in a room with muted furniture ensemble. If you have a kind of busy room, the accent piece should win with the striking color, that matches with what you already have in your room.

You shouldn’t forget about the medium furniture. In movies, the supporting role might be even more important that the main part. The floral and jungle themes are a hot trend this year, so why not to go in style? Accent chests and cabinets make a statement whether in a living room or dining room. Spacious bedroom cannot get along without focal dresser with special design, if chosen within the frames of overall decor scheme.

Don’t omit the entryway, it deserves your attention the same as the other rooms do. Moreover, it is the perfect place to use the accent furniture. A chest tall enough not to bow, when placing the keys or post works well here. Prefer a chest with a strong color and an interesting shape to impress from the very first step into your home.

Easy Tricks To Make It Right. Part Two

We continue giving advice how to omit the mistakes when arranging furniture in your new apartment or rearranging it in your beloved house. Last time we have included few common tricks to make the arrangement right. Missed them? No worries! Here you can read it through, right before getting to know the new tricks, we’ve got for you today. Follow FurnitureCart not to miss a thing!

💡Start Big

One of the common mistakes in decorating and furniture arrangement is in wrong starting point. Always start from the placement of the largest and the most important furniture piece in the space. For instance, if taking bedroom, bed should be placed first. Believe us, in this case you will make the most of your space. As a general rule, there are 2 choices to place it. Either against the wall opposite the  bedroom door, or along the room’s longest wall. The first position will create great view when you enter the room, the second – gives you chance to add nightstands or bedside tables. The next step is to place a dresser, as it is likely to be the second largest piece in your room. And so you go from the biggest to smallest. When you are finished with the bigger pieces you will easily see whether you’ve got enough space to place extra: a vanity set or an elegant home office set.

💡Break The Rules

On the one hand conventions are good to stick by, if you are taking the general rules and follow them, on the other – true genius inventions come when the rules are broken. Placing the rectangular or oblong dining table along the longest wall of a dining room gives it the extra space for moving around and leaves space to incorporate a buffet, sideboard or secretary. Placed closer to the middle of the space, the dining room set will snap off the room, and leave space for little else.

💡 Think Function-Wise

Comfort keeps pace with the functionality. While designing living space on your own, don’t forget to make it as handy as possible. Think about what you’ll be doing as you use the furniture. If the side table or coffee table  is out of reach of the seats, then you have to think about convenience first.

💡 Balance Right

Locating key furniture pieces in one corner is another common mistake, bringing visual disbalance and reducing the feeling of comfort and serenity. Achieving balance doesn’t mean you have to go totally symmetrical. If in a living room, the classic solution is to pair a loveseat with two accent chairs at the opposite side. Or ‘divide and govern’ by establishing furniture islands as we have advised in our previous post on Easy Tricks To Make It Right.

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.

How to Arrange Furniture in Your Living Room

The space size does not matter, if you have the furniture arranged right in your living room – you will enjoy it to the full extent. Just use few of our quick advice and make your living room truly cool!

When arranging furniture, leave room for traffic and the ‘entryway’ free. Make several seating islands (landing spaces). If you have a fireplace in your room – place cosy sofa and a pair of chairs facing each other. Add end tables for visual balance and a touch of functionality. Facing chairs and sofa towards each other are good also because it does encourage conversation. Our tip: place seating no more than 8 feet apart!

Place the seating so it takes advantage of the view your room has to offer. It might be TV or spacious window. Or you might like to create your own focal point by placing the wallart or making photo wall, or even placing console, bookshelves or etagere with your favorite objects. Another useful tip: It is better to place the television so the screen faces away from the sunlight.

Coffee table in between the seating island is a must. Frame the space with cabinets for storage, placed around the perimeter of your room, along the walls. If the space is shrunk, use round tables between chairs and a couch. The curves of the round tables are better for moving around them without sacrificing the territory invaded and for the safe navigation around.

Family and living rooms are usually considered to be the storage hub. Keep it organized if it’s your case as well. Here come entertainment walls and media consoles with storage for rescue.

Living room should have enough of light to be beloved spot. Let the windows provide enough sunlight into your room. For the evening cosiness use the lighting: chandeliers, sconces, and lamps keep it bright. Use your creative imagination flow and make the marvelous room for you and your guests to enjoy!
