Every few years our office is “reborn” when a designer of furniture comes in and makes changes they deem are important. The owner of our company somehow feels this keeps our morale high because we spend our days working in finery that is possible because when we look at our office each day we see how much care and love has gone into making us comfortable and, hopefully, productive. It works too because we do try harder to please him and are proud of our working environment. Of course a raise would also help. At home we take the idea to heart and also upgrade our furniture and décor on occasion. It is thanks to those furniture designers that we keep our lives exciting and progressing and our homes and offices a happy place in which to spend time.
The furniture designers learn to make best use of our space
Home or office space is one part of our lives we can have some control over. Making changes and updating the furnishings surrounding us is appealing in a number of ways. First of all we will not get bored with our rooms and furniture when it is changed now and again. Offices need new desks and perhaps some upgraded chairs. Walls can be very boring to those who sit working in a room all day long so updating the wall art is a welcome change now and then. Carpeting and tile flooring is one area that can be especially in need of change or at least cleaning on occasion and we all know how vital the proper lighting is to our environment. These changes can also apply to our living environment because we spend a great deal of time there as well.
Look for a furniture designer who is also a craftsman
You may have ideas in your head as to what you want your home to look like and the style of décor you wish to see in your living spaces. When you look for a new designer keep in mind a good one is a bit of an artist and should also be a craftsman who can take your suggestions and transform them into exactly what you wish. If it is modern décor or perhaps good solid pieces made of fine quality English hardwoods and built to last you should get what you want. If you want the lighter coloured woods such as ash, oak, or beech they are considered some of the finest of hardwoods available but may be costly so be aware and tell your designer what your absolute limit is financially. Costs should be one thing that you and your furniture designers agree on before a project is begun.
Of course you cannot go wrong with the above woods if they are affordable because they will last for generations and you can always resell if you get bored with your décor and wish to make changes again. Look at magazines for ideas and you will find how your particular taste runs and then make decisions based upon what you can afford and how it will fit into your home and lifestyle.
