When you are tasked with furnishing your dwelling, you are more or less painting a picture-the room is the canvas, and the furniture is the paint. You can choose from millions of pieces of furniture in thousands of different styles. Perhaps you want to go with a modern theme throughout your home. You can get a chic black living room set and an ultra-modern bed and be set. If you wanted to go with an antique feel, you could get a restored dining room table with matching chairs and invest in some chandeliers. The possibilities are endless.
One of the beautiful parts about furnishing your home is that you have complete creative control. This means that if you want one room to be modern, and another to be artsy, nothing is stopping you! In fact, this mixing and matching of room themes is very common among homeowners who have decorated and furnished the house themselves.
The same concept applies directly to the pieces of furniture too. Absolutely nothing is stopping you from mixing and matching different styles of furniture in a single room. As long as it looks good, there’s no reason not to! However, sometimes deciding on what types of furniture you want to use can be difficult. Lots of furniture looks generic, and very few pieces have that wow factor that we all crave so much.
This is where you need to get very creative. There are so many different ways to go about tackling a single room. For example, imagine you have a living room set and you need some comfortable chairs for people to watch the television on. You can go with a large sofa, as most people do, and some smaller chairs. However, this is rather expected, and honestly a little boring.
One idea a lot of people are catching on to is the idea of using alternative furniture like bean bag chairs to turn a room into something special. Bean bag chairs are not only absurdly comfortable, but they are charming and very inviting. You’d be hard pressed to find a single person in the world who doesn’t enjoy plopping down on a huge oversized bean bag chair.
To complement a set of bean bag chairs, you could add a daybed to the room as a central sofa, and perhaps a handmade coffee table. These elements will combine together when people view your room and flaunt the fact that you are not only very creative, but practical and fun as well.
