A Guide to Choosing Home Design Furniture

A house is not a house until it has people in it, and the people need furniture for their comfort.

Furniture is what turns an empty room into a liveable space. Furniture is what adds color to a house.

Home design furniture comes in different types, shapes, and sizes. There are various trade shows and fairs that show furniture from different manufacturers. We are talking about tables, chairs, wardrobes, and beds as well as cupboards and bookshelves. Each plays a role, and each occupies a unique space in the house.

Being that important, what exactly is house furniture?

Types of House Furniture

A typical house has the following furniture:

  • A Living Room Sofa

The sofa is the centerpiece of the living room that sets the tone and the mood of the whole house. It is the first thing people see when they walk in.

  • A Coffee Table

This is another staple feature of an average house. It is usually the most convenient place for placing items like fruits, ashtrays, and drinks in the house.

  • Accent Chair

These are chairs whose function goes beyond just providing a sitting space in the house. Their primary purpose is to add decor in the house. They are ornamental pieces that double up as chairs.

  • A Cabinet

Most cabinets are small in size and they add more color to the room. At the same time, they provide space for keeping things on top and inside. Flower vases look good on cabinets.

  • A Bookcase

A beautifully designed bookcase can do wonders for a living room. You do not need a big one. Just find one that is small enough to fit in some books.

Things to Consider When Buying Furniture

Below are some of the things you have to consider when buying furniture:

Your Style

Personal style and preference ultimately decide how the furniture will look like in the house. Is your style traditional, contemporary, or is it classical? Do you love bright colors or are you an earthly color type of person? These are some of the questions you have to answer beforehand.

Some love sparse furniture in their homes that leaves a lot of space. These styles of furniture are minimalistic. Others love huge and long chairs that stretch from one end of the room to the next. You are your own boss on this. Bring to life any style you want.

The Space Available

There is not much you can do when you want a king-size bed but your bedroom can only take a 4-by-6 bed. The space available is what determines the size and amount of furniture you can work around with. 

You do not have to walk around with measurements in tow. Simply make mental calculations of the size of the space and buy the right size of the furniture. A big enough space can even allow you to set a row of bookshelves. But again, some people are adept at making use of the smallest of spaces.

Your Budget



You can only acquire furniture that you can afford. The deeper your pockets, the higher the quality of the options available to you. Furniture prices depend on the design, the type of wood used, and to some extent, the brand too. 

Mahogany wood goes for about $9 per kilogram, Rosewood $8, Maple $10, Mahogany $30, and Sandalwood $30. There is another highly-priced wood-like Agarwood that costs about $7000 per kilogram. It is definitely way out of most people’s range.




The one place where everything has to be comfortable has to be your home; there should not be any other way around this. Home is where you go to unwind and take a break from a long day at work. The chair you choose to spend your evening in has to be as comfortable as possible. It has to be kind to your back. 

The same applies to the bed. Getting the wrong kind of furniture just for the sake of it can hurt your body in ways you cannot start to imagine. Take your time when selecting your furniture. Most stores allow people to try out products before purchasing.




House furniture is a one time purchase because they are supposed to last. Unfortunately, very few furniture makers create products that last. Durable furniture costs a lot more because they are made using the best of materials—the best woods in the market. 

Nailing down furniture shops that make durable products is hard but possible. You can do an online search and read reviews on their social media pages. You can also ask your friends or co-workers for pointers. You will never lack one person who knows where to get the best furniture.

Whether You Plan to Move

If you own the home you are living in, you have more freedom to choose any type of furniture you want. You can get even the bulkier ones. But if you are in the habit of moving around so often, you have to consider lighter furniture.

First-time buyers, especially young people who have just moved out, experience this problem a lot. They start in small rental apartments and when money comes in, they rush to buy big sofas and tables. It is best to save up and go for those once you can comfortably afford a bigger house.

The Size of Your Family


Bigger families need more furniture in the house and an arrangement that maximizes creating space. The number of children, for example, can determine the number of beds you will need to buy. If you are alone and plan to remain that way for a while, then all you need is a simple sofa, a table, and a bed.

Conclusion: Home Design Furniture

Furniture serves many purposes in the house. Over time they become sentimental pieces that are full of memories for the occupants. There is no need to break an arm and a leg for furniture. But, it will serve you quite well to get your hands on the best you can afford.

    I have found that buying commercial furniture built for offices will last much longer than residential furniture. Residential furniture is made to be disposable. Commercial furniture is made to be more durable and last longer in restaurants, hotels, hospitals, and offices. Personally I have a Herman Miller Aeron chair and after 3 years of daily use, it still looks perfect. My desk is from CB2 but it is glass and powdercoated metal so its gonna last.
