When you buy furniture it’s important to find pieces that work together to create a truly spectacular décor. Wood furniture is stylish, classy, and durable, and will enhance your interior design for many years to come. When browsing through consignment furniture, use these tips to find the wood that works for you:
Think About Color
Darker woods, like walnut, cherry, maple, and mahogany are perfect for traditional decors. These rich, dark tones add an elegant feel to an entire room. Lighter woods like oak, pine, and birch complement more contemporary color schemes. The lighter woods also work well in smaller spaces to create the illusion of a more open room.
Decide Between Hardwoods and Soft Woods
If you are looking for extra durability, hardwood furniture is the choice for you. These woods, which include oak, teak, and birch, will cost a little more but will last longer. Soft woods, like cedar, pine, and composites, are cheaper and often easier to find. They require a little extra maintenance, but with the proper care, they can still last for a long time. Choosing between hard and soft woods will narrow down your selection and make it easier to find the furniture that you want.
Consider the Rest of Your Décor
To choose furniture that works with your current interior design, you’ll need to assess the current state of your home. Take an inventory of each room and determine what kind of style you have already implemented throughout your home. Once you have established your baseline, choose wood colors and styles that will complement the design style you already have in your home.
