Comments Off on Six Tips on Choosing the Right Sized Sofa for Your Lounge Room

Are you planning to renovate your house or decorate a new place? One of the first rooms to decorate is the lounge room as it is the heart of the house. If you have trouble choosing the right sized sofa because of the sea of options out there, you can rest easy. Here are six tips on how to choose the right sofa.

Think about the size of your room: The worst thing you can do is buy a sofa that is the wrong size or shape for your lounge room. If you have a big room, you must think about how much of the room you want to cover. It is always advisable to measure your room and then find a sofa that will be the ideal size. Think about the orientation: A key to creating the perfect living space is positioning all the furniture in the room in such a way they make maximum impact. Think about other pieces like the coffee table, tv stand or indoor plants and then put them all together to make the ideal space to enjoy with friends and family. Determine the shape best suited to your space: An L-shaped sofa would be ideal for those looking to open the living space whilst a rounder piece is ideal for smaller spaces. Research the best materials: the ideal fabric can really make the whole space put together. Whilst it is important to find a sofa that is visually stunning, functionality is a lot more important. Don’t go for suede if you have pets or small children. On the other hand, leather is a more safer choice and stands the test of time. Choose the style that best compliments your décor: choosing a piece that ties in with the rest of the décor will ensure you get a more put together look rather than something that is all over the place. Pick a colour: If your room is of one colour then opt for a piece that is brightly colored so it stands out. If you have brightly coloured accents, then opt for a neutral shade to balance it out.

Comments Off on How to Position a Modular Lounge Suite in Your Lounge Room

Decorating your living room is an exciting prospect. The thought of putting pieces of furniture together to create a finished look is fun however it can also be a tad confusing. When it comes to seating options, a modular lounge suite seems to be popular for its flexibility and functionality.

Here are some ways on how you can position your lounge to ensure you create maximum impact:

Think about flexibility: when arranging living room furniture, it is important to ensure that the space is flexible and spacious enough to move around. Modular lounges are great for opening spaces and making a room feel bigger than it is. Straight across: the simplest way of arranging a modular sofa lounge would be to place it so it would act as the focal point whilst the rest of the furniture are placed at a similar angle. This would help everyone to get a good look at the television or enjoy a warm fire. Symmetry matters: a popular way of arranging furniture is placing them face to face. This means, placing a sofa and a pair of chairs or another sofa directly opposite each other. The focal point, whether a tv or fireplace could be on the other end. This seating arrangement works great when it comes to initiating conversations or just enjoy a movie as a family. Don’t cut corners: if you have a modular sofa, you might be tempted to take the easy route and just push it against a corner. However, this could feel a bit claustrophobic especially if it’s a model with deep cushions. Pull it away from the wall to let in a bit of light and air and add some brightness by placing side tables with lamps on top.

Comments Off on Five Designer Tricks to Matching Your Buffet with Your Dining Table

Your dining room is one of the most important rooms in your house. It is where everyone gets together to share a meal and enjoy each other’s company. The focal point, of course, will be the dining table as it is where the meal is served.However, a buffet table is another key piece too and if chosen correctly, can create maximum impact.

Here are five tricks to help match your buffet to your dining table:

Colour matters: if your dining room has had a makeover then why not do the same with a colorful buffet? Opt for a solid hue; something that compliments the rest of the decor. Clever accents: Think a typical buffet and dining table combo is boring? Fret not. Opt for some clever accents in the form of lighting. A sideboard with integrated lighting would give a modern feel to the room. Creative display: a buffet is not only for storage but can be used as a display platform as well. A well-placed buffet would normally occupy the longest part of the room, second only to the dining table. Utilise the ample surface area and use it to display your favorite pieces of art or delicate china. Shift in style: why not try something different and opt for a floating sideboard or buffet? As the dining table would most likely occupy a lot of space, it’s not necessary to crowd the room with another heavy piece of furniture. A floating buffet would be a great shift in style whilst still sticking to the traditional option of having a sideboard. Ample storage: a buffet should not be the dominant piece of furniture in the room. That belongs to the dining table. However, a buffet should serve its purpose and add strength to the overall look. Opt for one that is strong and comes with ample storage to hide all the clutter.

Comments Off on Four Rules to Protect Your Lounge Suite During a Move

You might have to move houses whether it’s a rental property or your dream home. Chances are you may have to move your furniture along as well. There are many things you need to consider when moving furniture like your dining table, lounge suite or even your bedroom suite.

Here are four rules to help protect your lounge suite during a move:

Give them a thorough clean: like most things, furniture like sofa and lounges need regular maintenance and even more so during a move. Give your beloved pieces a deep clean so they are ready for transport. Ensure you use the appropriate cleaning solutions for the specific material. Disassemble before the move: Larger pieces of furniture can be hard to pack so make it easy by disassembling them. Remove legs and handles or take out drawers. In case of sofas, separate them if they are modular pieces and remove accessories like cushions and add-on inserts. Ensure you label and pack these pieces together so they are easy to assemble once you reach your destination. Cover to protect: After you have lightened your load by disassembling your furniture, you must ensure you pack them properly to make sure they stay protected throughout your journey. Fragile items like glass or lamps and mirrors need to be packed in plastic bubble wrap. However, in the case of sofas and lounge suites, opt for cloth covers or blankets and sheets to keep the dust away. Utilise clever storage: If you have a lot of furniture and have trouble storing them, you might be tempted to cram them all together in a messy heap. However, this could do more harm than good in the long run. Avoid stacking things on top of each other especially things like sofas and lounges. It could ruin the fabric and make them more susceptible to damage. Ensure you store the items neatly and leave a gap between each piece to allow for air circulation.
