Decorating a home is an important part of making it feel more like a house. Each room can have its own distinct personality as well as reflect the desires and personalities of the members of a household. Though a bedroom is perhaps the place that people personalize their homes the most, office furniture can help to make a work space feel more welcoming as well. From outdoor furniture to office furniture, fully decorating a home can be a years long project, one that is ever evolving and changing as well.
The inclusion of a rug in a central space like a living room can help to bring a cohesive feel to the living room decor. Living room furniture can be spaced around the rug to bring a central point to the room. A rug can also help to keep household members and guest warm during winter months. There are other furniture items that can help the house to stay warmer as well. In fact, draperies can prevent energy loss by up to ten percent each month during the winter season. Window treatments can also help to keep heat in, and are, on an average, replaced every seven to eight years to maintain peak efficiency.
It’s important to choose furniture that is long lasting, as only half of people in the United States have updated their furniture within the last five years. Over 95% of customers and consumers expect the furniture in their home to be long lasting and durable. It’s also important to select furniture that feels like it reflects who you are as a person. In fact, over 70% of survey respondents said that their furniture reflected their personality and a similar percentage of survey respondents said that they judged other people based on the furniture and design choices in their respective homes.
Office furniture in particular can help to make a work space in a home feel more inviting. After all, working at home can be challenging, as there are typically more distractions than in a traditional office environment. Office furniture can help to separate a home office from the rest of the house and the household, providing a sanctuary for those who work remotely or telecommute to their jobs.
Choosing home furniture can be an important part of making your house feel truly like a home, a place you want to be and relax in. Home furniture and decor can make or break how you feel about your home, and can even shape others’ opinions of you.
