When we think about furnishing a room, we often think big picture: sofas and coffee tables, bedroom suites and dining tables. But put these furnishings in a room without anything else and the space would still look stark, unwelcoming … and not very functional.
Luckily the professionals at the Ashley HomeStores of Vancouver have a solution for that! Here are 4 essential steps to creating the home you’ll love coming home to.
- Lighting – An essential element of any room, the right lighting will let you tackle tasks like reading and sewing, or set the inviting ambience you want without glare. From desk lamps for your home office to bedside table lamps for your nighttime read to pendant lighting over the kitchen island, find the right lighting for each room in your home by considering your unique needs and wants for each particular space.
- Creative room dividers & cabinets – As we find new areas in our homes for studying, video calling or office space, the right furnishings and accessories make a big difference. You want a usable space you can work in, but you don’t necessarily want to see everything that entails. At Ashley Home you’ll find creative room dividers that look as good as they work, and practical, stylish cabinets to provide valuable added storage.
- Area rugs – Hardwood, engineered hardwood or laminate … wall-to-wall carpet is a thing of the past in many homes, but rugs still play an important role. Cosy on the toes in those spaces where we spend much time, area rugs also help anchor furnishings in a room – think your dining area or living room sitting area, for example – creating a cohesive vignette.
- Wall art and tabletop accessories – Once you have the lights to illuminate your space and the comfy carpet under your feet, it’s time to add the “jewellery” of the room – the art and accessories that bring everything together. At Ashley HomeStore, discover the perfect piece of wall art, the throw cushions to add seasonal colour to your sofa, or photo frames to capture that cherished memory. The final touch for any room is here.
