  • Consider size first. Know the dimensions of the furniture that you need to purchase. Make sure you fully utilise the space (every inch counts, especially in Singapore). Like wise, do not over-clutter your space, remember to leave walking space.

  •  Choose a style that complements your home / Design Theme: Know the design theme you are going after. Your home reflects who you are. Something that shows your personality or simply something that you like, which will mean something that you will love now and in the future. Trend is ever changing. Unless you want to keep changing your interior design and furniture here and then.
  • Colour trick – Finish: If your piece of furniture has any exposed wood, the stain or finish color is an important point to consider. Many pieces can be altered dramatically by the color of the finish. You can easily take a chair from traditional to contemporary by changing a cherry stain to a black paint. Likewise, a mahogany piece painted white will instantly appear more feminine.
    Fabric: Lighter colored fabrics can be appropriate for a formal living room, foyer, or bedroom. However, if this is a piece of furniture that will be used frequently, it is suggested to choose a slightly darker fabric.
  • Choosing your centrepiece – Sofa: Make sure you always start with a main focal point and begin placing furniture from there, Other than your bed when you spent most of your hours on, sofa is the next. (better off when you are still conscious).You can use either two matching sofas facing one another or a sofa with two armchairs to encourage interaction and engagement with others in the room. To ensure there’s always room for more, “ottomans can also be a great addition to seating and can easily be moved around.
