Giving a different look and usability to any room is home accent furniture. It can make your room look extraordinary deviating from the common trend in your community.
Here are a few tips on how to make use of accent furniture to make your home look different from those in your area.
Cabinets can be used as accent furniture. Make an empty-looking corner lively by positioning a cabinet filled with trinkets. Put antique vases, figurines, or mementoes from friends. You can also display souvenir items that you have bought from other cities or countries. Other items that you can put on display are sports items, plaques or trophies.
Another furniture piece that you can put in that corner is a cocktail cabinet or a bar unit. Choose a small one that has a glass display shelf on top, a drop-down floor and a cupboard. This will give you the opportunity to show off your sparkling wine glasses and wine, drinks selections, and a space to store your cans, mixers and other wine bottles, respectively.
Get an end table to go with your cocktail cabinet. This will prevent you and your guests to crouch forwards or backwards to reach for their drinks and nibbles. Place one end table near each sofa or chair. These tables will prevent your guests from holding on to their glass or cup. It will also lessen crumbs and spills. Ensure, however, that the height of the end tables is not too low or too high.
Have some occasional chairs. Placed in the living room, these chairs do not only add additional seating furniture but are good accents as well. Modern furniture offers various designs and styles of occasional chairs that are very practical and functional. You can choose from a leather upholstered chair or a colored fabric upholstery. Other options include a recliner, club chairs, lounge or chaise. Choose an occasional chair that looks a bit different from your other furniture pieces and has a radiant color.
Accent furniture is essential in home decorating. It provides the home a more personal appeal, elegance and style. Apart from having accent furniture pieces, you can also opt to have accent furnishings like paintings, sculpture, mirror, clock, etc. A unique lighting fixture can also be used as your room’s accent.
The addition of these items will make your home unique. It can never be denied that there are people who have the same tastes in furniture. However, a little trick on putting something extra will produce an awesome effect!
