The right furniture can open up your space and create the illusion of more square footage even in the smallest rooms of your home. Use the following tips to find furniture and accessories that actually make your living room look bigger.
Avoid Bulky Furniture
The visual flow of your space will be jarred with furniture that is too bulky. Instead, you should focus on pieces that actually look like. Gravitate toward lighter colors and simpler patterns to keep from overwhelming the space. Accent chairs with visible legs keep the flow going even at ground level. Avoid pieces with excessive upholstery that might just make your space look smaller.
Stick to Neutrals
Choose furniture in neutral colors that allow your eye to travel across the room without stopping. Add accessories with simple color to bring some more personality to the space without interrupting this flow. You might be surprised by how much bigger your room can look when you use a neutral color palette.
Bring the Eye Up
High drapes, artwork, and even striped furniture can all create an optical illusion of more height, which helps you forget about a lack of width. If you want to play with the size of your room, find furniture and accessories that immediately draw the eye up toward the ceiling.
Replace the Coffee Table with an Ottoman
Although coffee tables provide more storage space for a room, you might be better off with a large ottoman in a small space. Ottomans often have a little bit of extra storage space, they provide a flat surface for drinks and books, and they can even serve as another seat when you have company.

Before you head to the furniture store, try to create a list of features that you want your furniture to have. If you want a porch swing, for example, think about other pieces that will complement it. Test out a few different styles to see which one feels the most comfortable to you.

Redecorating any room in your home can be overwhelming, especially when you’re trying to transform your child’s bedroom. Kids can be notoriously picky, and may have strong opinions about what they prefer to go in their room. No matter how old your child is, it’s a good idea to have a plan for how you’ll decorate before you actually visit your local furniture store. That way, you’ll both know what to expect. Keep reading for tips on choosing furniture for your child’s bedroom.
Ask for Help
Your child will appreciate having a say in the new furniture for her room. Once you decide that it’s time for new furniture for your child’s bedroom, ask her if there’s anything in particular she would like to have. You can determine whether her requests are reasonable and something you can work with, and arrive at a compromise that makes both of you happy. Your child will feel like her opinions matter, and will be excited to help you pick out the pieces that will go in her room.
Look for Versatility
If there’s one thing that’s for certain, it’s that kids grow quickly! As your child grows, her furniture will need to, as well. If you are purchasing furniture for a younger child, decide if you want to find pieces that can accommodate a teenager as well as a toddler, or if you’d rather purchase new furniture a few times as she grows up. Both options have their own benefits: it’s less work to purchase versatile furniture now, but shopping at different intervals in her life makes it easier to change your décor.
Keep it Fun
Kids are playful and their rooms should reflect their natural happy state. Feel free to use bright colors for bedding, chairs, or rugs, while keeping certain pieces neutral so that they won’t go out of style. Your child will love having her own room, so make it someplace where she enjoys being.

The celebration of the New Year has come and gone, but hopefully your resolutions have not fallen by the wayside just yet. If you’re one of the many people who resolved to update the look of your home, it’s not too late to do so. Getting new furniture that’s hot for 2014 can give your life just the jolt you need to take the rest of your resolutions by storm. Keep reading for an inside look at the top furniture trends for 2014.
While it is possible and even trendy to use neutral colors in your interior decorating scheme, this is the year that your furniture takes center stage. Instead of choosing sofas and chairs in beige, off-white, or taupe, look for more saturated colors like navy and deep purple to give your home a modern and sophisticated feel. You can keep the room light and airy by using lighter colors on the walls, and the darker, richly-colored furniture will serve as an anchor to tie the room together.
Recent furniture trends have leaned towards cotton and other lightweight fibers for upholstery. Luxury is back in for 2014, with velvet, suede, and corduroy coming back into the spotlight. These heavier fabrics pair perfectly with the deep hues that are currently on trend, and are durable enough to last you for many years to come.
Mixing and Matching
If you think all of your furniture has to match perfectly with the rest of your décor, think again. This year’s trends are moving towards fun and funky pairings of colors and patterns that may have been frowned upon in the past. Think of mixing and matching as a sort of controlled chaos, rather than a complete free-for-all, and find unifying colors and patterns that keep your design from being out of control. Couches, recliners, and accessories can go together without being exactly the same color.
