How to choose Wooden Living Room Furniture – a simple guide
When choosing high quality, solid wood lounge furniture there are various options to consider. We think that the first step is to select the wood type, material and style that best reflects the look and feel you are trying to create. At the Wooden Furniture Store we have a wide range of collections in several styles, from the classic, practical and ever popular oak lounge furniture ranges that would suit a growing family, to a warm art-deco inspired walnut collection, all the way through to more contemporary, industrial style furniture – perfect for a loft-style living space.
At first glance it would seem a simple task to decide on your next lounge furniture purchase; but depending on where you look for advice it may not be as straightforward as it initially appears. The internet is full of bloggers, interior design specialists and self-proclaimed style gurus that claim to have the design key to unlock the perfect living room. This is all well and good, but the only voice you should listen to is your own – after all you are going to be the person enjoying your home more than anyone, so it needs to be absolutely right for you and your family.
Given that the options can be wide and varied, we’ve put together this quick and simple guide to help you choose the living room wooden furniture that will be perfect for you.
Step One: Let’s look at the most popular wood for lounge furniture
Solid Light Oak Living Room Furniture
An ever popular choice, oak has many advantages. Solid, hardwearing and very good value for money, light oak is perfect for a range of family circumstances and homes. If (like ours) your house is full of children doing what children often do (which usually appears to be leaving a trail of destruction and mess wherever they go), then having items that can easily withstand that kind of punishment is pretty important.
Our best selling Mobel Oak living room range is an obvious choice, with its smooth lines, very high quality solid oak and lots of practical features it is a natural option. Strong and solidly built, it will last a lifetime. For those operating on a budget, there’s the lounge furniture items from the Aston Oak range to consider. Excellent value with many practical features, it is a great value option.
Mahogany Lounge Furniture
Many people tend to think that mahogany is only for those in stately homes or with very traditional taste in home décor and furnishings, but that is no longer the case. Our modern mahogany furniture combines the best of the traditional with up to date features and styling, a great option for those that love the rich, classic traditional material in their living room, without it feeling out of date or old.
The Baumhaus La Roque mahogany living room range is a high quality, classic looking collection packed with up to date contemporary features designed to meet the needs of today’s modern living – in style.
Solid Walnut Living Room Furniture
Gaining in popularity, walnut is proving to be a contemporary cousin to the more classic material of mahogany but with a more up to date design aesthetic. An attractive blend of modern styling and warm, traditional walnut, as a very high quality material it is both hardwearing and solidly made. We have two solid walnut furniture ranges that look simply stunning in any home.
The Mayan Walnut living room collection is an attractive and stylish range, designed with sharp modern lines, packed with smart features. The Shiro Walnut range is an art-deco inspired collection with a more artistic feel, with rounded edges and many interesting design features.
Painted or Reclaimed Wood Furniture
For those looking for something more unique and contemporary to furnish their homes, then painted, recycled or reclaimed wood is a really interesting option. Less predictable and certainly more colourful than standard woods, our Urban Chic reclaimed range is a real talking point. It has an industrial feel, with a metal box framework and rough reclaimed wood, it makes a genuine statement for those seeking something more individual and striking for their homes.
Step Two: Start with the furniture basics
Given that many homes have the constant challenge of keeping the clutter at bay, the key to a stylish and ordered living space is storage – the ability to turn the clutter and mess generated by a busy family into a peaceful oasis of calm relies heavily on having enough useful and practical living room cabinets and storage units.
In most modern family homes, there’s usually a number of core items at the heart of the lounge or living room – items that are designed to be functional and beautiful, every day, year after year. These often include pieces such as solid wood tables for storing magazines or other items, oak coffee tables, a wooden tv cabinet and a solidly built bookcase to provide useful and stylish storage.
Step Three: Add extra storage and occasional furniture
Depending on the space available, there are a whole host of complimentary items that are worth considering to complete your room. Occasional furniture, coffee tables with drawers and storage, lamp tables, living room tables and side tables all help to create the layout you need if space is at a premium.
