Colors to Consider When Buying Furniture

When making a furniture purchase, there are many things to consider. Comfort, size, storage, use, and most of all, color. Furniture pieces are often the center of any room, and they make a statement. Whether that’s neutral, patterned, bright, dark, or any combination of these, you want to ensure that your furniture works for your overall style and aesthetic. Home Furniture Plus Bedding serving Louisiana and East Texas is here with a few tips on colors to consider when buying furniture.

Consider Lighting Colors

Lighting is one of the number-one things to consider before making a furniture purchase. How a piece looks online or even in the store could be very different depending on the lighting of the room. If you choose a dark piece that’s well-lit on the store floor, but the room in your home has one overhead light, don’t expect the piece to have the same look. If the room you’re working with has a lot of natural light all day, you can play with more bright colors. If you choose a dark piece, you don’t have to worry about bringing down the mood of the entire space.

Decorate from Dark to Light Vertically

Keep in mind when buying a piece that in order to keep your room looking large and spacious, you’ll want to use darker colors closer to the floor. Your space should replicate the outside world. Keep this in mind when buying your large statement pieces so you can accent or even paint properly.

Grays for Days

Gray-colored furniture is a great option when wanting a neutral place to start. Gray works for any style making it the perfect chameleon for pairing with bold patterns and bright accents. It compliments both warm and cool color palates, so you won’t have to worry about it being a seasonal piece.

60-30-10 Rule

When it comes to decorating a space, many people implement the 60-30-10 rule. 60% of your décor should be a dominant color, like your walls. 30% of the room is your secondary color and includes things like upholstery. The last 10% represents your accent color for accessories, throws, and other miscellaneous items. This creates a sense of balance without being boring nor boisterous with your décor.
