(PRWEB UK) 25 March 2013
The choices that people make when buying items such as sofas, tables, cabinets, mirrors , lighting and other decorative or functional accessories can make or break the appeal of a home, as well as give visitors an indication of their personalities.
Most individuals have an idea of what they like when they see it, however it can be difficult to clarify their exact tastes so they can continue in the right themes when shopping.
For this reason, leading online home interiors retailer Furnish.co.uk has clarified some key ways for customers to understand their personal style preferences in order to make the most suitable purchases:
Take Stock at Home
The first place for a person to start is to take stock of the furniture and accessories that are already present in their home. They should make a note of items they love and why, doing the same with items they detest. This also includes textures, colours and shapes, plus rooms that best please them. Even if they notice a varied mix of different styles, it’s important to consider whether there is a common theme or mood.
Dream Travel Destinations
Specialists at Furniture.co.uk advise that the places and era’s a person enjoys most will impact significantly on the type of home décor that will best suit them. For example, if someone is enthralled by Asian destinations such as Indonesia, China, Burma and Japan, they will almost certainly enjoy furniture and lighting that reflects exotic décor. If however a person feels an affinity with the modern era along with technology, they will enjoy clean, contemporary designs and décor.
There is a wealth of home décor magazines and websites available these days – while many might think such publications are aimed at wealthy aficionado’s and connoisseurs, they will be a good starting point for anyone to clarify their tastes and get inspiration for the type of furnishings they prefer.
Main Furnishing Styles
It’s important to understand some of the main furnishing styles, as many related websites conveniently allow shoppers to browse by category. Following from the above advice, if a person has discovered they enjoy clean lines, little or no ornamentation, and a range of finishes, the chances are they have a ‘modern’ style. If they have a preference for rich, dark wood finishes and carved details, their style is more ‘traditional’. Finally, if they discover that the décor in their home is a mix of different cultures and eras, they pursue the ‘eclectic’ style, where strong colours, patterns and textures dominate.
Simon Hill, CEO at Furnish.co.uk concluded: “While we are proud to carry a wealth of products and brands to suit every taste and budget, this can pose a problem for shoppers who are not sure what their individual style actually is. We hope that by following the simple top tips we outlined, people will find it easier and faster to hunt down the home interior items that thrill them the most.”
