When renovating a home or building a new one you generally have an idea of how you want each room to flow into the next. You might be able to even picture the finished product in your mind with the help of some images or 3D walkthroughs supplied by your designer or architect. Before you know it you have a brand new space that needs to be filled up! If your new space is an open concept design you need to keep every aspect of the room in mind when adding furniture in an open floor plan. An example of this is your dining room situation. Is your dining table in the kitchen now? Then your open concept plan needs to flow and your furniture needs to fit your style as well as the style of your kitchen. The same applies for your living space, office space or any other mulit-use space.
When making furniture selections consider what matches and what does not. Experiment with fabrics and textures. Don’t be afraid of the occasional bold color choice. Not everything needs to match perfectly and the unexpected is always welcome!
