All of Ashley’s home furnishings are high-quality, attractive furniture. Selecting the right pieces and sets for your family takes a little thought, though. That’s because this brand offers such a wide variety of options, and every family is different. Here are some things to think about when you buy home furniture from Signature Design by Ashley.
1. Your Preferred Ambiance
The ambiance in your home is the atmosphere and character of your living spaces. It’s the mood or the feeling you get when you walk into each room. The question becomes: what kind of feeling do you want to inspire? Designers have used many different words to describe ambiance.
- Bright and airy
You get the idea. Once you decide what type of mood you want to create, check the Ashley selection to find pieces that create that feeling. For example, you might choose rustic style furniture for a Western ambiance. For a charming atmosphere, cottage style furniture might be perfect. For a cozy ambiance, choose furniture that has touchable fabrics and surfaces was well as warm colors. If you want a glamorous feeling, consider choosing furniture with metallic highlights, bejeweled drawer handles, and shimmering beveled glass mirrors.
2. Ages and Conditions of People in Your Home
Whenever you’re choosing furniture, you must remember the age and health conditions of the people in your home. Some furniture is simply not comfortable for certain people, while others enjoy using it. Here’s an example. Counter height dining sets are trendy. They’re attractive, fun, and engaging. And they create an excellent place for conversation. However, if the people in your home are very young, very old, or have mobility problems, they may have a rough time climbing up into the taller chairs.
3. How You Use Your Furniture
A room can look exquisite, but if you can’t live your life the way you like it, it isn’t right for you. Think about the activities and hobbies you engage in, how much time you spend in each room, and how you like to enjoy your home. Then, look for Ashley furniture that does what you need it to do. Here are a few examples.
- Impress important guests – a top-grain leather sectional or an ornate dining set
- Entertain friends and family – a bar set or a large extendable dining table
- Relax and unwind – a large TV stand, a spacious bookcase, or a comfortable recliner
- Sleep well – a beautiful bedroom set with a strong frame and an upholstered headboard
- Use electronics – furniture with built-in USB ports
4. The Size of Your Rooms
Of course, the size of your room will determine how much furniture you will want in it. For small living rooms, a settee, a small, glass center table, and a storage ottoman are ideal. For a large living room, you might like a large sectional and a wide hardwood cocktail table.
Start planning your room by thinking about your preferences, your family, your activities, and the spaces you have to work with in your home. With that information in mind and the full range of Ashley furniture to choose from, you can create a home environment that genuinely pleases you.
