If you are thinking about redecorating the rooms in your house, there might not be a better time than now. Hoovers reports that six out of ten furniture sales in America are for the home. Statista anticipates a rise in U.S. furniture sales, with $96 billion to be made in 2016 alone. With the furniture industry set to experience a boom, you may be able to find more affordable living room furniture at a very high quality than ever before.
In addition to the furniture itself, it is often the other elements of the room and the decisions you make which help to determine the overall flow of the space. For example, if your living room is more modestly sized, you may want to consider getting loveseats for small spaces. These other components can also help you to truly make the room your own with regard to aesthetic choices. Living room area rugs, for example, can project a warm ambiance that goes especially well with solid hardwood flooring. The latter surface has the additional benefit of being easy to maintain, as the floors are not readily susceptible to stains and do not need to be vacuumed often.
In the dining room, a dark wood table set–a top favorite stylistically among American households–can be complemented well by quality dining room lighting, particularly lights that can be adjusted easily for brightness. Dining room drapes and window treatments can also help to establish an elegant feel in the room.
When redecorating your kitchen functionality is key. For instance, if you are looking to be more energy efficient, an electric stovetop is preferable because it does not require the burning of gas with a pilot light, which results in 30% energy savings.
