Furniture should be an enjoyable way to express yourself. Not a chore you want to get over with as soon as possible.

Improve Your Lighting Set-Up For A More Complete Look
Does your living room set not feel quite complete? Your lighting might be to blame. It’s hard to enjoy the benefits of a lovely arrangement of chairs and sofas if the lighting is weak. Lighting today comes in many different forms — you have functional lighting that focuses more on brightness, accent lighting that works as a visual ‘touch-up’, and even eco-friendly lighting that saves money. Figure out your lighting set-up next time you’re in the mood to rearrange and you might be surprised with what you find.
Leather Furniture Is Classy And Easy To Maintain
No matter which style you choose, leather furniture will be just what the doctor ordered. Classy and beautiful, a leather sofa or leather chair will compliment any set-up seamlessly. Taking good care of your leather furniture isn’t that hard, either. It’s recommended by most interior design professionals you condition your leather every six months to keep it supple. Keeping your furniture out of direct sunlight will also keep it from drying out prematurely (or cracking, in worse case scenarios).
A New Rug Can Shake Things Up Beautifully
What are other simple touch-ups you can add to your home? A new rug isn’t a bad place to start. A rug’s edges, ideally, should be between 12 and 14 inches from the room’s perimeter. It’s not meant to be the main focus, but an elegant addition that keeps the eye traveling naturally. A recent study asked interior designers their thoughts on home habits — the vast majority recommended homeowners and renters change their room’s decor every five to 10 years.
Your Bedroom Should Feel Cozy And Refined
When you feel irritated or uncomfortable in your own bedroom, it’s time for a change. Alongside living room sets you should also consider the function of your bedroom and how it supports your week. A larger bed might help you fall asleep better, especially if your mattress is old and lumpy. A new bedroom furniture set can improve your mood by giving you more opportunities to organize. Furniture stores are stocked with all kinds of ways you can bolster your week…but only if you reach out to what truly matters to you.
