Why ‘Investment’ Furniture will Eventually Bore You to Death


There are some timeless investment furniture pieces which can be placed in any design layout, from any era, and not only do they blend in with the décor, but they also add some character to the interiors. Those pieces are very rare however and they also have to follow a certain theme to work properly, like that popular, retro leather office chair (the one littered with sunken grooves) which looks like it belongs in a classic, luxury-design study room.

If you’re already heavily stocked-up on investment furniture pieces, there are still ways through which you can freshen those pieces up though, but here’s why investment furniture will eventually bore you to death:

Investment pieces are usually very expensive and are kept for long periods of time

While you can get some fabulous home designer products at affordable prices, investment pieces are usually very costly, since one naturally ‘invests’ in these larger pieces with the aim of keeping them for life. Investment pieces may fit in with the interior wall décor and art, as well as other design accessories, at their time of purchase and introduction into the home, but time will eventually catch up with those ageing designs and the entire balance of your interiors can get thrown off. You will eventually get bored with your investment furniture, but you are forced to stick with it because you paid so much for it, even in the wake of it gradually becoming style-outdated.

Sometimes investment furniture can be so expensive that you become rather reluctant to really enjoy it, existing as more of a decoration than actual, functional furniture.

Investment furniture can often be very prominent and dominating

Even in the event that you do eventually get bored with your investment pieces, due to those large and more prominent pieces lagging behind the emerging evolutionary design trends, there’s not much you can physically do to the furniture itself because of the sheer size and prominence. Remember that often, home designer product ranges include mirrors and other matching design accessories like chandeliers, so redecorating every now and then may not be very practical, as unfair as that may be since design trends to tend to evolve quite rapidly.

Beating the Inevitable Bore

While investment furniture will eventually bore you to death, there is no escaping some of the more traditional investment furniture pieces, like the old dining room table, the living room sofa and perhaps some armchairs and a patio set. Fortunately though, with the availability of fabulous designer home products at affordable prices, accent furniture pieces and design accessories can be deployed to accentuate the investment furniture and act as a constant source of refreshment for what can become a very redundant look.

Accent furniture pieces offer a very wide variety of styling trends, with the likes of table lamps and other design accessories very easily updating the look and feel induced by the larger, more permanent investment furniture pieces. In this way, that inevitable investment furniture bore can be hedged against and you never have to surrender to it.

5 Simple Tricks to Update the Design of Your Lounge Room

5 Simple Tricks to Update the Design of Your Lounge Room

The trendy design of your lounge room may have followed all of the modern design standards at the time you decorated it, but the effects of time will inevitably catch up to all current trends, prompting the need for you to refresh and update your lounge design at some point.

Design trend evolution will eventually mean the interior décor in your lounge room is outdated, to the point where you cannot even pass it off as a classic look anymore, but there are a few easy steps you can take to update the design of your lounge room, when the need arises.

1. Buy with Vision

This is probably much easier said than done, but prevention is always better than cure. If you are right in the middle of decorating your interior living room space, you will be familiar with the fact that home designer product ranges include mirrors, table lamps, accent furniture pieces, design accessories, wall art and décor, which means that there is a lot to consider in an attempt to buy with a vision of the future.

Buying with a vision means that you should acquire décor units that can very easily fit in with different themes and design styles, like table lamps that will allow you to change lamp shades for example, leaving ample leeway for a quick color-scheme upgrade to resemble more modern and trendy looks, as they emerge.

2. Modernize the Existing Décor with a Progressive, Complementary Theme

It’s rather amazing what complementary styling can do to your ageing lounge room design. Those dominant design styles, which are getting on in the years, are actually quite easy to overpower and neutralize, with the simple use of fabulous home designer products available at affordable prices. Since home designer product ranges include mirrors, table lamps, accent furniture pieces, design accessories, wall décor and art, one modern and progressive color scheme represented throughout all those décor units can work wonders to modernize and lift the entire lounge room space.

3. Re-arranging Furniture and Décor Units

The rate at which design trends change may be relatively high, but in design terms it is not to the extent that you have to re-do your lounge room every two years or so. Some accent furniture pieces, here and there, could go well with the re-arrangement of the layout plan, giving your existing furniture and décor an instant fresh and progressive look.

4. Add Some Wall Décor and Art

Nothing updates a lounge room quite like modern wall décor and art, with abstract and simple art pieces going well with clean, print-art type of wall décor.

5. Create the Illusion of Expansion

Actual renovation and expansion of your lounge room would very likely prove to be costly, so the next best thing, which can be just as effective, is to create the illusion of added space by including design accessories such as large mirrors and other reflective home designer products. Complement that with a lounge room arrangement that pours more natural light into the room and you instantly create the kind of functionality characteristic of modern interior spaces.
