You might be planning to purchase a new home or renovate the existing one, it’s important to know some of the essentials that have to be there in your house. Going through a lot of articles or videos can be a hectic task hence Coppice has covered all your concerns and created this article. In this article we will cover important house areas such as the bedroom, living room, bathroom, kitchen and lobby.
Let’s dive straight into the blog to see what are these house essentials: Now it brings us to lamps, chairs, sofas, beds, tables etc.
The bed is the focal point of your bedroom decor, so getting it right is the most important step to creating a restful retreat. With so many options available, you’ll want to consider size, style and a few other design elements to select the perfect bed for your space.
The basic style of your bed should fit with your decorating preferences to achieve a cohesive look. Some of the most popular styles include the following:
- 1. Canopy Beds
- 2. Platform Beds
- 3. Traditional Beds
- 4. Bunk bed
- 5. Futon
- 6. Panel/platform bed
- 7. Storage bed
- 8. Sleigh bed
Next, consider what you’d like your bed to made out of:
- 1. Wood
- 2. Metal
- 3. Fabric Upholstery
As you narrow down your bed selections, take the time to consider what kind of headboard you prefer. To do this, think about what you do most often in bed. If you tend to collapse into bed and fall directly to sleep after a long day, a wood or metal headboard will work well for you. You can feel free to select a headboard with slats or open grillwork, as you won’t spend much time leaning against it.
If you prefer to sit up in bed to read or watch TV, however, you may prefer an upholstered headboard. These padded options will prop you up in comfort, allowing you to feel as though you’re sitting on a soft couch. A solid wood headboard is a good alternative, as long as you invest in extra cushions to soften the back.
If you’re outfitting a small bedroom, storage beds can help you make the most of your space. These styles come with built-in drawers for extra storage space under your mattress, making it easier to live without a bulky dresser.
You’ll also want to carefully measure your room before choosing which size bed you want for a small space. Remember that Twin- and Full-size beds are several inches shorter than other mattresses and can save valuable space.
Sofas are a focal point that set the tone and style of the room. Analyse the Kind Of A Sit You Require. A higher seating height in a Sofa, provides the ease of getting up, whereas a lower seating is more casual and relaxed. Therefore, before making a decision, do keep in mind who is going to be using the Sofa – are they tall, short or older people?
The width of a Sofa plays an important criteria in decision making. You’ll need to measure the available space in your lounge to decide whether it is the 3, 2, 1 seater or large sectionals that your room needs.
You can opt for following types of Sofas:
- 1. SOFA SETS / SECTIONAL
- 2. SOFA RECLINERS
- 3. SOFA CUM BED
Where would you keep your decoratives or serve items? It’s the table. Coppice believes a house should have following kinds of tables:
