Choosing Home Furniture Based on your Personality

Choosing Home Furniture Based on your Personality

Are you thinking about furnishing your new home or refreshing the interior design of your current one? What about decorating it according to your personality? Homes are known to reflect their owners' character traits and provide a comfortable space for them to unwind and engage in their favourite activities, and one that has been styled based on one's identity may be the ideal place for that.

Cheerful

If you are a bubbly person who thrives in lively environments, enjoys the company of family and friends, and often spends your days with a smile on your face, then your home should reflect the same type of cheerfulness.

Incorporating vibrant colours into your home is a way to create a cheery atmosphere—think lemon yellow, strawberry pink, or mint green shades. If you prefer having clean and minimal spaces, give your walls a white or light cream coat of paint before decking your home with furniture in these particular colours. Otherwise, if bright and vivid interiors are your thing, you may consider creating eclectic or art deco interiors by painting the walls in these shades and adding on other colourful furniture. For example, an orange-brown sofa or sofa bed paired with an artwork filled with brilliant tones and an extendable dining table topped with a vase of flowers in lustrous colours. These introduce a zest of life into your home and create ample space for any potential home parties you’ll be hosting.

Quiet and Reserved

If you prefer being alone with yourself and love the peace and quiet of having nobody around, you’ll need to design a zen home that complements this side of you. Focus on integrating relaxing and cosy elements into your home by opting for warm and diffused lighting as opposed to cool white lights or soft and organic fabrics instead of sleek and polished furniture pieces.

Natural materials are excellent at producing comforting environments and choosing to use pieces of furniture that are constructed of nature’s resources make for a snuggly home. Consider transforming a part of your home into a comfortable lounge area and fill it with the softest fabrics, most cushy seating furniture, and your favourite decorative ornaments. For example, a large sofa bed, a round coffee table and some potted plants. To ensure cohesiveness throughout your home, tie together the design elements with neutral and muted colours such as wooden tones, grey, white, and beige.

Systematic and Intellectual

Are you a logical thinker who prefers doing things systematically and believes strongly in practicality? Then you may consider creating a minimalist home with functional and practical pieces of furniture. For example, going for a subdued colour palette of neutral tones, and simple yet highly useful furniture; this means sleek and clean designs with solid colours. Although a minimalist home should look neat and with a lack of ornate details, it should be well furnished enough to not look empty. Complete your home interior with accent lights, small ornaments or artwork, or standing lamps.

Furniture pieces that aid in organisation and living a more structured life can bring about additional convenience that some systematic people may love. Get a high-capacity shoe cabinet to organise all your footwear nicely and chest of drawers in every room to store belongings out of sight. You may even think about buying multipurpose furniture, such as sofa beds, extendable dining tables, or storage beds, to increase its functionality.

Romantic

If you’re a romantic person who wants to always feel loved and even enjoy making others feel loved, you can introduce it into your home by designing intimate and welcoming spaces that make you feel fuzzy and happy inside.

Ornately designed pieces inspired by the Victorian style are great options for creating a romantic home interior. Pair these pieces up with warm yellow lights, plush fabrics and flowers to complete the look. If deliberately searching for such designs are challenging, focus on the big pieces, such as your sofas and dining tables. Alternatively, rustic-style furniture pieces are also amazing options as they give off an organic feel and bring warmth into your home.
