How To Choose Your Furniture

When choosing  the furniture, the users should be guided not only by the materials that have been used for their production, but also by the price and its aesthetic qualities. Of equal importance are the characteristics of equipment tailored to the dimensions of the area inhabited by the users, such as the number of furniture pieces and their functionality. Since it is these things that the comfort of home depends on. In addition, there are certain rules, which may facilitate the arrangement and visually enlarge even small spaces.
The recent findings by CBOS (2008) concerning the quality of life according to the living area show, that the Poles are generally satisfied with their living conditions (59.5% of Polish families assess them as good). In addition, the average area occupied by the average household is approximately 70 square meters. On the other hand the results of GUS (2008) show, that a relatively large area of apartments  passed on for
​​use, and the lack of a dynamic natural population growth, year by year lead to the increase of the average living area per capita in Poland (average increase of nearly 15% from 21.1 sq m to 24.2 sq m). It is worth noting, that the most common  apartments are those, where the area is  between 30-49,9 square meters and  50-69,9 square meters . Such premises are inhabited by about one third of the research respondents (respectively: 29.7 percent. and 30.2 percent.).
However, the choice between multi-functional furniture, so called "clever", and stand alone units of a larger dimensions, is dependent on the individual circumstances, depending on the number of roommates versus  the occupied area and individual  preferences. Additionally, you can arrange your furniture and match with it your equipment in such a way, that visually it seems to be spacious and larger than it is in reality. Here are some tips on how to arrange your interior:
In larger rooms we can successfully play with colors and choose the equipment and the color of the walls in various shades. Optical magnification of small areas can be achieved through the selection of bright colors and the furniture that corresponds to these colors..
Before buying the furniture it is necessary  to inspect and measure the area, the length  of walls and  wall cavities, so that the furniture is optimally adapted to the layout of the house. We should also be careful not to buy unnecessary equipment and adjust its dimensions to our physical and individual needs.
In smaller interiors it is better to give up richly decorated furniture. Much better choice will be to buy the furniture of neutral, uniform colors.
In addition, irregularly shaped furniture, of various lines and angles are better suited for the larger interiors, while the smaller interiors should have simple furniture with straight lines.
Furthermore, smaller interiors should not have too many small objects hanging on the walls, such as frames with photos and memorabilia. It is definitely far better to choose one, centerpiece for the room, such as an exhibit or a work of art.
In order to increase the visual perception of the house its living area should be tidy -  the right order of things properly placed according to their functions and purposes of use will work to the advantage.
Large, bulky furniture should be placed perpendicularly to the longest wall, while at the same not becoming an obstacle  when moving around the room.
Additionally, the lighting in important to any interior look - natural light will brighten and enliven any room - the more light the better.
It may be worth to take care of other details of the house arrangement as well, including selecting not upholstered chairs for smaller rooms and sofas with exposed legs ( glass coffee tables are particularly suitable here), exposing the windows and the floors (giving up the curtain rods, curtains, blinds and carpets), which in turn will give the interior its depth. A similar effect can be obtained through a proven method-the mirrors.
The majority of  tips is known to us and we follow them intuitively when arranging the interiors. It is important to avoid the effect of "filling up"  and overwhelming.
In summary, the most important tip  is to remember that the space of our home should be comfortable, safe and will make us want to go back to it with pleasure.
