6 Reasons To Use Soft Furnishings

Furnishings

Like the name suggests, soft furnishings are textiles made from a variety of materials as wool, cotton, linen and leather. While soft furnishings are used primarily to enhance the decor of a place, they possess several other benefits that make them more than worthy of a spot in your home.

Enjoy The Option of Having Cost-Effective Alternatives

 

Interior Designer: Unity Design Consultancy

So you’ve just moved into a new home on a somewhat shoestring budget, and do not have the luxury of splurging thousands on expensive appliances. Fabric and its derivatives like wall coverings are definitely more pocket-friendly as compared to luxurious materials such as wood, and marble so the pocket-pinch will not hurt as much.

How To Make It Work: Resourcefulness is key. Even within the world of soft fabrics, there exist materials of varying textures and affordability. For instance, use suede or cotton linen upholstery instead of leather as these fabrics are cheaper and easier to replace. Opt for lace or polyester curtains instead of a thick material such as jacquard.

      Infuse Warmth and Comfort


Interior Designer: Sky Creation

Fabric-covered furnishings such button-tufted headboards, bean bags and cushions automatically elevate the comfort of your home. After all, you want your home to be a place of comfort, an abode where you can rest your weary bones after a long hard day.

How To Make It Work: Using plush items such as cushions, pillows and bean bags generously throughout your entire home will transform your home into a cosy cocoon.


Do Quick Updates To Your Interior

Interior Designer: Sky Creation

One attractive feature of soft furnishings is its replaceability. There’s no need to go overboard by replacing your existing furniture in its entirety if you dig certain trends-just use soft furnishings to your advantage. Save money by swapping out cushions and curtains to suit the mood. So, if you’re looking to give your interior décor a quick makeover without any drastic alterations, use more soft furnishings.

How To Make It Work: Throw in a few floral cushions when the heat of June comes around for a summer feel. Switch out the lace drapes for shimmery, silky blinds when the cool rainy season in December arrives. With soft furnishings, you’re in charge of the atmosphere.


4.    Effortlessly Add Volume And Depth

You’d want your abode to feel welcoming, so why not deck it out with the choicest cosy furniture? Soft furnishings are a cost-effective way of adding depth and volume to a space, and what better way is there to layer up a seemingly empty space than to add generous supplies of rugs, carpets and throw pillows onto it?

How To Make It Work: Make the living room the visual masterpiece of your home, as it is the most “public” area. After all, it is the place where one frequently entertains guests and visitors. Add in quirky throw pillows and funky carpets to glam up what would otherwise be a drab space. 


Personalise It With Your Individual Style

Fabric and textile products reflect one’s tastes, preferences and cultures and add a sense of familiarity into the decor. Soft furnishings can spruce up many a dull room in myriad ways, and truly encapsulate the personality of the owner.

How To Make It Work: Soft toys are a great way of showing off one’s personality, and go a long way in elevating the cosiness of the room. Customised cushions featuring unique designs and faces of popular artists also showcase the owner’s tastes and preferences. If you’re the creative type, you can make your own designs come to life by screenprinting them onto soft fabric such as cushions and bedcovers.

 

Be Colour Co-ordinated

 

Interior Designer: Weiken

If you’ve chosen a particular colour scheme for your home or room without accounting for the colour of the furniture, soft furnishings are here to the rescue. It’s much easier to find soft furnishings that fit into the colour scheme of a home, than to find solid furnishings of the same or related colour, especially if you have chosen an offbeat colour.

How To Make It Work: Having your soft furnishing match the dominant colour of your home helps to further cement the colour scheme. Match your walls to your cushions and drapes, and see the magic! As you can see above, the silvery sheen of the soft furnishing fits like a glove into the overall white and grey colour scheme of the living room.
