Occasional furniture is functional rather than decorative, and can be used when needed rather than being essential items such as sofas and chairs. Yes, many believe a coffee table to be essential, but only on the occasions when you need it to rest a drink or a plate. You can spend an evening comfortably watching TV from your sofa without having to use an occasional piece of furniture.
Couches and chairs may not be your best option. Consider the available space in your room. If you live in a studio apartment that doesnt have a separate living room and bedroom you may want to shop for multipurpose pieces. Sleepers or sectionals that provide seating and can be converted into a bed may be more practical in a limited space.
The first thing that you need to do to maximize your space is to figure out which furniture pieces you want to keep. This is usually determined by thinking about how the furniture will actually function within the space. For example, if you live in a small studio apartment they would not make much sense to keep a large dining room table. Making these decisions is not always easy as many people become very attached to certain pieces. Some may even have generational value or sentimental attachment. If you find that you have pieces that are not a good fit for your small apartment, then you should look into storing them are passing them along to another family member.
Leather furniture wears well and looks better over time. Leather chairs and sofas with removable back cushions are a good investment. Removable cushions can be rotated or flipped for even wear. Cushions constructed with mesh panels allow air to circulate between the leather and the cushion insert. The circulating air fills the cushion and keeps it from becoming flat. The cushion maintains its shape for years even with repeated use.
Fortunately, there is an alternative RTA furniture option that provides you with cheaper prices than the showroom furniture, while still providing a long-lasting, attractive couch or sofa. Custom built RTA furniture is very different from the cheaply made, ready to assemble furniture most people are used to. These custom built furniture pieces can be made in virtually any color or style, and can even be made from your own pattern if necessary. Best of all, custom-built furniture pieces in the ready to assemble market are made from solid oak or ash rather than the cheap plywood or particle board that others use.
Another place to check to get ideas is the TV. Considering the amount of different channels cable TV and/or satellite TV offer these days, you will most likely have some sort of home living or home design channel. Check your guide to see what shows there are that you can watch to help you decide and give you some much needed insight.
