Stain Resistant Furniture For Your Lifestyle

Ever watch a movie or TV show and fall in love with the furniture? You know, beautiful stark white down couches with a white shag throw rug and glass top coffee table? It can look picture perfect, but if you duplicate the style in a house full of kids and Rover the family pooch, that look might last about thirty seconds. Maybe.

We all want to live in spaces that make us happy and we can more readily do that when we are realistic about our lifestyles and what comes with it. People who enjoy entertaining will have a hard time with furniture that can’t be lived in because spills and accidents happen in life. If you have kids or children visit often, creating an atmosphere that is comfortable for them will end up making your life easier, especially if they wander a little too close to your collection of first editions while sucking on a juice box.

The colors and accessories we choose for our rooms should complement our personalities and accent the things we love. Sometimes it’s safe to have the main furniture be a neutral color and then use pillows and blankets as colorful accents. If you love leather or dark furniture, then you can brighten the room with lighter shades of paint and bright lighting. No matter what you decide, look at your lifestyle and try to match it to your home décor.

We can still fawn over that white furniture, but parents might want to hold off until the kids are a little bit older.

Small Space, Quality Taste

England Furniture for Small Spaces

There are a number of reasons people live in small homes or have small rooms. For some it’s a matter of what they can afford, for others it’s easier to maintain, and for still others it’s simply an aesthetic choice. Regardless of the reason, people living in small space have to make compromises when it comes to furnishings, decorating, and organizing.

If you’re looking to make those small spaces look bigger, then consider the following tips!

  • Airy, Light Fabrics
    Sheer fabrics allow light to pass through window treatments, bed skirts, table covers, and furniture slipcovers. If you want something other than plain colors, find soft floral vines or simple stripes to keep the look simple.
  • Chooser Soft, Light Hues
    Whereas dark, warm colors make a space feel cozy and intimate, light, cool colors make a space feel open and airy. For optimum effect, select soft tones of blues and greens.
  • Clear Out the Clutter
    There’s nothing that makes a small space feel cramped more than having too much stuff. Work out ways to get collections out of view, organized behind doors, table skirts, or on shelves. With things neatly arranged and out of sight, the space that is in view will feel orderly and open.
  • Coordinate Wall and Furniture Colors
    Contrasting colors tend to break up a space. Pieces of furniture are less interrupting and tend to blend with the space if they’re colored to match the wall color.
  • Keep the Upholstery Plain
    Select plain colored upholstery for furniture instead of bold plaids, stripes, or prints. Use texture for interest and stick to neutral tones if you can. Visit our England Furniture Company catalog to see our wide selection of fabrics.
  • Use a Monochromatic Color Scheme
    Choose colors that are in the same color family and use tone-on-tone woven upholstery fabrics, textured wall finishes, delicate tonal drapery fabrics. Cool colors and delicate warm colors on most surfaces give the room a more open look.
  • Open the Way
    With furniture and accessories blocking the view into a room and out to open spaces, a room will look cramped. By moving furniture out and away from walkways, you’ll open up the space and make it feel larger. You can also choose short pieces of furniture like an ottoman, an armless, open chair, or a low table, and place large, tall pieces along a wall rather than out in the open space.
  • Believe It or Not, Bigger Is Better!
    Use a few large, simple pieces of furniture or accessories in place of several smaller pieces which would make a small space look cluttered. With open space and large blocks of color, the room will appear to be more calm and comfortable.
  • See-Through Space
    By using materials that you can see through, anything beyond will appear farther away. For a tiny bathroom, I got rid of an opaque glass shower enclosure and substituted a clear, frameless one. The room is the same size looks bigger. Now we can see all the way (an extra 3 feet) to the wall at the back of the shower.
  • Let in the Light
    Any room will look larger if it’s well-lit, either by natural light or artificial lighting. Get rid of heavy draperies and open up the windows to let the light of the outdoors into the space. Add more lamps or install track lighting or recessed lighting.
  • Reflective Surfaces
    You might not like the look of a mirrored wall, but you have to admit that it always makes a room look larger. Instead, use a large framed mirror on a wall or stand an over-sized framed mirror against a wall. You’ll get the same room-enlarging effect as a mirrored wall, but with more style.

Tips for Arranging Your Sectional Sofa

A sectional sofa is extremely comfortable and it can provide ample seating for your family or for entertaining. It’s a large piece of furniture, however, and its’ size can make it difficult to arrange the room in a functional way. Some people are hesitant to buy sectional sofas for this reason, but with a better understanding of furniture placement, you can create a comfortable atmosphere with a sectional that will work in almost any space.

Achieve Balance
Creating a sense of balance is important. Sectional sofas are large and a room can quickly appear to be weighed down on one side. Position your sectional sofa across from other big pieces of furniture, such as a large armchair, a big entertainment stand, a noticeable fireplace, or a big bookcase. While you may be tempted to separate the pieces of your sectional, avoid the temptation. Doing this often throws off a sense of balance and creates an awkward looking room.

Accessibility and Openness
If you have a good amount of square footage, place the longest section of a sectional into the corner that is opposite the entry into your room. This will create a sense of space that will appear easily accessible, inviting, and open. If the sectional sofa includes an armless, interchangeable chaise lounge, keep it away from the entry side. The chaise should be out of the way to avoid tripping. You also want to avoid having to walk around to sit.

Create a Good Sense of Flow
Sectional sofas initially seem awkward to position in your room. Many individuals tend to place large furnishings up against walls, assuming that’s the only option. It isn’t! The middle of the room can often be the perfect place for your sectional as placing it in the middle enables you to use an otherwise open space. It also makes every seat of sectional accessible and the wall space can be used for other pieces of furniture. Try placing your coffee table or the sectional’s footstool in the center of the room and then place your sectional sofa in – and around – the coffee table or stool. Make sure you leave room for accessing each seat and room for the recliner’s footstool.

What to look for in a recliner

Recliners are pieces of motion furniture that are among everyone’s favorite pieces of furniture.  As such, people often pay more attention to the internal parts that make them work than they would with other pieces of furniture. When looking for a recliner, people are going to need to make sure that the motors are quiet enough, or using the recliners will be a noisy and frustrating experience for people to endure on a regular basis.

Shoppers should make sure that the screws of the recliner are heavy enough in order to support all of the changes that they’re going to have to endure when the chair is used. The levers of some recliners are also easier to use than others. Some of them respond more smoothly to touch than others as well. People should really try to imagine them using these recliners each and every day, including when they’re exhausted after a long day at work and when they just want to relax. If they could imagine really using a particular recliner each and every day, they’re going to be that much more likely to make the right decision.

People are shopping for a recliner need cushioning that is full and firm enough, and they’re going to need the headrests and the armrests to provide all of the support that they need. Shorter people should make sure that when the chair is reclined all the way backward they are still able to easily touch the floor with their feet. Otherwise, the chair is going to get uncomfortable quickly when they’re using it every day.

Some people are going to prefer fabric recliners and some people are going to prefer leather recliners. The care requirements for these two materials are going to vary. People who cannot maintain leather surfaces easily should think twice before getting leather recliners.

England Furniture has a great line of England Furniture recliners and there’s something available for everyone!
