Scale is an important concept in decorating — you must match the size of your furniture pieces to the space in which you plan to put them. Too often, homeowners make mistakes in this area, resulting in a space that looks less than ideal. Guild Hall Home Furnishings can help you understand how to choose living room furniture that fits perfectly into your Salt Lake City home.
Depending on where you live, you might be challenged by rooms that are either too big or too small. In cities in which space is at a premium, such as New York, London or Tokyo, it’s important to buy small pieces that don’t overwhelm your space.
Salt Lake City is home to many large and beautiful houses. When you’re looking to decorate a large living room with soaring windows, high ceilings and other dominant features such as a stone fireplace, you must shop for furniture that complements the space and does not allow the room to overwhelm it.
Sectional sofas are a good choice for large spaces. Frequently, homeowners try in vain to shoehorn these behemoth pieces into cozy living rooms in the hopes of making this versatile and comfortable furniture work there, but alas, it isn’t possible.
Sectional sofas need room to spread out and breathe. When you have lots of space to work with, you can choose a sectional with 10 or more pieces, including chaises, recliners and ottomans. Look for thick cushions and deep seats, and fill up the corners with fluffy throw pillows.
In a large living room with big windows, you can get away with hanging some truly gorgeous drapes. Choose a heavy fabric for winter such as velvet, wool or linen. Go with a bold color like burgundy or gold lame. But don’t be afraid of patterns either. Damask and toile are elegant.
When spring comes and you want to see more of the beautiful view every day, switch to silk or chiffon and let your drapes billow gently in the breeze.
Accent pieces are what really tie a room together. Whether you need a pair of side tables, a single chair, a lamp or another decorative item, our designers can help you find the perfect piece for your space.
Feel free to bring pictures along and we’ll show you some accent pieces we know you’ll love.
