How to Determine Your Living Room Furniture Style: TV Stands, Coffee Tables, and More!

You spend a lot of time in your living room. From relaxing after a long day of work with family to enjoying a cup of coffee before your morning commute, your living room is frequently used. As one of the most frequented rooms in your home, it deserves to have great furniture. Your living room should have furniture pieces you love to look at and use. If you don’t love your furniture pieces already, it may be time to purchase some new ones. But, before you purchase new furniture, you should know your style. This will ensure you can love your furniture pieces for many years to come. In this blog post, we are going to explain how to find your living room furniture style so you can choose the best pieces for you.

Find Your Living Room Furniture Style

Many customers of ours have expressed that they don’t know what their style is. Some have also said they feel as though their furniture pieces don’t match. While this is not a severe issue that must be addressed immediately, it can make a space less comfortable. You deserve to have a space where you can relax in. Or, a space where you can make memories in, without worrying about your furniture. Thankfully, there are some easy ways to find your living room furniture style so you can make it the best room in the house.

Take a Look at the Pieces You Have

Unless you just moved into your first home, you likely have furniture in your living room. Take a look at your furniture and see if you like anything about it. If you do like the furniture you already own, think about why. Is it the texture or durability of the TV stand? Or is it the fine details carved into the coffee table? Based on what you do like about your furniture, try to find other pieces with those qualities. This will help you get furniture pieces that match, and pieces that you love.

Consider Materials

Today, there are so many materials furniture pieces are made of. At Unruh, we typically make our furniture with solid hardwood and steel. These two materials tend to be the most durable and high quality for our customers. However, some companies use glass, plastic, and particleboard. The material you choose for your furniture is entirely up to you and your preferences. With those preferences, you can narrow down your style more quickly.

As you have likely noticed, there is a trend between materials and styles. For example, modern furniture tends to features glass or raw metals. On the other hand, farmhouse style furniture pieces tend to feature hardwood. After looking at the materials you are drawn to, you will have a great idea of your style. Be sure you choose a material you think feels comfortable, not just looks interesting. Many items on the market look amazing but are not designed for comfort. The living room should be the most comfortable room in the house, so try to keep that in mind.

Browse Furniture Online

The Internet can be a very helpful tool for determining your living room furniture style. You can search for specific pieces that you would like to purchase. For example, if you would like a new coffee table, you can search “farmhouse coffee table” or “wood coffee table”. On the other hand, if you need a new TV stand, you can search for that as well. Browse through the results and bookmark which ones you like.
