Furniture Options for Interior Design Projects
Doing an interior design project for your home, or the home of a close friend can be fun! There are endless choices to make. Your imagination can run wild in order to make the interior of your home as unique as it can possibly be. Obviously, one of the key components of an interior design project will be the furniture that you are going to use. You should put a great deal of thought into your home furnishings. (I mean, you are going to be living with these items). Here are some furniture options for interior design projects that you will be able to use as part of your design plan.
1. Go to antique stores in your area to see if they have anything you like.
If you have the desire to have some classic furniture in your home, you should pay a visit to some antique stores. Perhaps you’ll find a piece of furniture that is perfect for a certain room in your home. Antique furniture has the ability to liven up any room it’s placed in. Make sure you visit several antique furniture stores since every store provides what’s caught the eye of the store owner, unlike furniture store chains. Expose yourself to a wide variety of furniture styles for the chance of finding the ideal furnishings for your home.
2. Go online and visit the websites of some furniture manufacturers.
New furniture can easily be bought online. Therefore, you should put the power of the Internet to work for you. Just do a search for the specific type of furniture that you are looking for and see the variety of furniture websites to choose from. Visit the sites and keep notes about which brands of furniture are far superior to their competitors. You should also take into account how much the shipping charges will be for the furniture you buy. Joybird furniture has a unique style. You can find a vast assortment of furniture at the Joybird website.
3. Thrift stores can have some outstanding interior design options to choose from.
A thrift store might not be the first place to pop into mind when you are thinking about places to buy furniture. However, a thrift store could be the perfect place to discover furniture that fits an interior design project. The price is another incentive. All of the furniture you will find at a thrift store is inexpensive because it has been gently (you hope) used. You will be able to reduce your interior design budget by going the thrift store route. This is not to say that you need to buy all of your furniture at a single location. Mix it up a bit!
4. Garage and yard sales are another option to acquire rare furniture.
Your interior design project can also have a backstory when you take time to attend garage, yard and/or tag sales. These are ideal locations for you to find some rare furniture that might have belonged to a great-great grandmother or an uncle who brought it with him when he immigrated to America. There are treasures to be found at yard sales!
I hope these ideas help you with your interior design projects. Have fun decorating!
