Want to take interior designing to the next level? Or are you just interested in making your home more elegant? Either way, having a few pieces of accent furniture may help. What is accent furniture anyway?
Accent furniture complements the main pieces in a room to create a finished and complete look. These furniture pieces are typically much smaller in size compared to a specific room’s main furniture. Tables and chairs are the most common accent furniture pieces while stools, benches, and entryway items are also popularly used for this purpose too. Basically, it can be anything, but it should enhance to what furniture you already have, not compete with it.
Accent furniture can make any room go from plain and boring to classy and elegant. Choosing the right piece is what makes all the difference. That certain piece with a wow effect is just what you need. However, not anyone can choose and simply pick because learning how to choose from the start can often be difficult by itself.
Entryways are often the most technical to decorate. This is where accent furniture comes in as it can be just the right size. A dresser unit can often accent an otherwise empty space to make the home look more lived in. You may also want to consider an accent chest or an entryway piece that has coat hooks.
A chest of drawers in an entryway or hallway, or even when used in a bedroom, is also a good idea. Night tables, placed on either side of a bed, are also popular pieces of bedroom accent furniture. For the living room, small footstools can be used as to not be too obstructive.
Another way to add accent furniture to any room is with a beautiful screen that can add color and elegance. The use of screens is also a great way to add additional privacy to any small space which could be used for creating a changing area or creating room division without having to use physical walls.
Accent furniture may be made of any material, such as wood, metal, upholstery or plastic. It may have storage capabilities or it may not. This type of furniture may be seen in a variety of styles too, ranging from modern and minimalist, to traditional and country.
