The modern home is a place that we spend a lot of time. For that reason, decorating it to be something which is fine-tuned to our own styles and tastes is vitally important. So, with that in mind, here are the best ways that you can go to make the right luxury furniture choice for your living space.
Make it Contrast
One of the biggest things to remember when it comes to luxury furniture is it needs to stand out. And to do that, it needs to be a piece of furniture which you can see has that touch of luxury to it. Something which stands out from the crowd. The better the contrast ability of the pieces, the better you should be able to feel and really utilise the luxurious side of your furniture.
Make Sure It’s Individual
The key to having the right choice in contemporary furniture is making sure every piece is individual. Having the same kind of furniture as your neighbour is all well and good, but that doesn’t make you feel special. Like you’re a genuine individual. This is why choosing a luxury piece which is an antique, part of a limited edition or similar is extremely important to the long-term lifecycle of your business.
Make it Functional, But Aesthetically Pleasing
The thing about furniture is that it can be completely beautiful, but what’s the point if it’s not comfortable? You need to have something which is both functional and looks good at the same time. And the best tip you can have before buying any type of furniture is to try before you buy. It may look good, but make sure you actually enjoy sitting on it too – pro tip.
Make it Part of a Theme
The good thing about luxury furniture is that you can make it the centrepiece of an overarching theme which you can then use to ‘complete’ the room, as the saying goes. This is where you need to really investigate the luxury furniture of your choice and decide whether or not it fits in thematically with the rest of your space. Or your house as a whole. Lots of antiques in a modern space could look good, but not necessarily the best use of space aesthetics.
Use Expanding Colours
Colour is a transformative element for any room. Bright colours, as the logic goes, work to help a small space feel larger. However, in a truly small space what you need to do, more than anything, is to create contrast. This is where mixing dark colours and light colours together can be a truly transformative experience for your room.
For example, if the small room you are looking to decorate is the kitchen. One way to create depth and the illusion of more space is to have light coloured cupboards on your wall, but then deeper coloured cabinets underneath. The walls can then also be a lighter colour (to absorb the cupboards somewhat and make them disappear). The contrast this creates can be startling.
Of course, the best way to contrast your room to increase the feeling of space can vary wildly room to room. So, you may have to experiment with different colours and techniques to make this work well.
At the end of the day, luxury is all down to perspective. What may be luxurious to you isn’t necessarily the same for someone else. Choose the little luxuries that make you happy, keep it on a narrative which remains true to you as well as good from a look perspective. Then and only then will you have the right luxurious furniture for your space.
