A room that is not used often still needs to be furnished, and some thought has to go into furnishing it. A living room that is used every night, with kids sitting watching TV or playing computer games needs to be furnished differently from a room you just entertain guests in. Do you have family nights where you get a takeaway and settle down in front of the TV to watch a DVD or the X-Factor and Saturday night TV programmes? In most living rooms, the comfort of the soft furnishings is crucial; no one wants to sit on uncomfortable seats for any length of time.
Now that you have your measurements and a shopping list, it’s time to hit the store! You’ll usually find a very helpful sales associate standing by to help you make your furniture selection. He or she can tell you about the various materials that furniture is made up of. If you’re looking for furniture that will stand up to just about any abuse, go for something made with a hardwood like pine or oak. You may also need to look for a fabric that is stain resistant or easy to clean.
In many homes the fireplace or the television is the focal point of a room. If this is the case for you then you need to design the rest of the room around this focal point. The rest of the room should highlight the focal point and the fauteuil club, lamps and tables should complement the focal point. You next need to think about colours. Larger rooms will suit bold colours whereas smaller rooms will benefit from lighter shades. Currently popular is to choose one feature wall and just paper this one wall with a bold patterned wall paper and paint the rest of the room in a neutral colour.
Structure: A frame made of hardwood is the most durable and supportive, and will make a good investment if you are looking for a sofa bed to use long-term. Other softer woods and metals are prone to warping or oxidation when exposed to changes in humidity and temperature over time. The mounting plate and brackets that connect the sofa bed mechanism to the frame should be tightly bolted on. Look at the bed base, which can range in material, quality, and price, from a wire mesh base to wooden slats. Wooden slats provide firmer support and allow for air circulation.
The idea is to create an atmosphere where your potential buyers can easily envision themselves living in your home. Your house is your best investment. Show it off to its best advantage and you will reap the greatest financial reward.
