Choosing the right furniture is more than falling in love and appreciating its natural beauty – you need to consider the style of it, whether it’s going to last and how it will look in your home.
Think about the distinct details and quality of construction – if you’ve found a piece of furniture that suits your needs then you’re laughing! In order to find your ideal piece of furniture we’ve put together a few tips to consider:
- Consider how it’s built
It’s important that your furniture piece is both solid and heavy – whatever it is, it needs to be able to stand strong on its own and last for a long time. Stick with solid wood construction – your furniture will generally last much longer.
With Shefstore: We use only solid wood, chosen and engineered for longevity, so the system you buy today will last you a lifetime. Our shelving system is incredibly strong – the wood is grown in northern Scandinavia, which produces a tight ring growth; we then engineer and finish the shelves, adding further strength. We also use only high quality metal supports, ensuring long-term sturdiness.
- What’s the price?
Once you’ve found the piece of furniture you’ve fallen in love with – you then need to look at the price and think about whether or not it is consistent with your expectations for how long the piece should last. Consider what it is you’re going to be using this piece of furniture for and you can always make a request to test or take a look at a piece of the furniture before you buy.
With Shelfstore: Our storage solutions have all the benefits of a tailor-made system without the expensive cost.
- What’s the finish like?
Lighter coloured fabrics can be appropriate for a formal living room, foyer, or bedroom. However, if this is a piece of furniture that will be used frequently, then try to choose a slightly darker fabric. It’s also useful that once you’ve bought and put your furniture together – it’s also an added bonus if you edit the piece of furniture slightly afterwards.
With Shelfstore: Our system offers a timeless design to suit any home or workplace. We use only solid wood and finish our shelves to a high standard, creating a flawless appearance that never goes out of fashion. The Shelfstore system is also modular, meaning it suits any home or office and you can tailor your unit to precisely fit a space. You can even start out with a small unit and expand it as your requirements change.
- The unexpected – how does this piece stand out from the rest?
Look for furniture that has an element of the unexpected or has some personality. The overall shape of the piece could be a little unconventional, or maybe there’s something interesting and unique about this particular piece that you won’t find anywhere else?
With Shelfstore: Our shelving system is ideal if you’re looking to have a piece of furniture that is one of a kind – you can add your personal taste to it so that it meets your interior design requirements. Either use the unique universal cupboard door in fill system which enables you to have a range of finishes including mirrors and fabric or you can paint your shelves in any design you wish.
