Settling into a new home is a very exciting time! But it can also be mixed with stress and chaos (especially if you’re not organised). There are countless things to take care of and it can start to feel like there is no end in sight… Luckily, we have the best tips when it comes to buying your new furniture! If you keep these key points in mind when sourcing your new furniture you’re sure to get it right…
4. The timber selection…
The basis for almost every piece of furniture is the timber. Not only is the quality important, but the colours too… Do you prefer something dark and rich in colour? Or do you want to keep your space feeling open by choosing a lighter option? Luckily there are multiple hardwood timbers for you to choose from… Of course, we can always manipulate the colours if you’d like something a little more specific.
We predominantly manufacture our designer furniture with Australian Hardwood Timber. Our options include Tasmanian Blackwood, Tasmanian Oak, Victorian Mountain Ash, Western Australian Jarrah, Tasmanian Silver Wattle or American Oak. Alternatively, if you have existing furniture pieces you’d like to match, our specialist polishers can closely match tones. So you’ll always ensure to have the right type of timber in your home.
By choosing the best hardwood timbers available, you’ll have furniture that looks and feels amazing… Most importantly you’ll have furniture that will be in your home for years to come, maintaining the same level of quality from day one… And what more could you want? When you choose the best materials, you’re guaranteed the results to match!
3. Dining furniture – made for all occasions
The dining area is probably one of the most used places of the house. It’s a place where you gather as a family for meals throughout the day. It’s a place for helping the kids with their homework and having a cup of tea after work. It’s also a place to have family and friends come together… Your dining space will essentially become the heart of your home, so why not make it special?
There are a few things to think about when it comes to designing your dining setting. The chairs you want (and the level of comfort they provide), plus the table itself – you can choose rectangular, round, oval or square – you can choose the timber too. And of course, the number one thing you need to determine is the size.
How much room do you have in your dining space? Perhaps it’s an unusually shaped area or it’s a little narrow? We suggest no matter what kind of space you have, an extension table is always the way to go! You’ll never run out of room for those big gatherings again… And of course it allows for the most comfortable dining experience imaginable, with plenty of room to move. We can transform almost any style of dining table into an extension, so come in to see the wide range of options available!
2. Fabric or leather… Which should you choose?
When choosing what style of furniture you’d like for your home the colours and patterns you choose will have a big impact! Do you want to make a statement with your lounge or dining chairs? Or would you like something light and contemporary? Perhaps you really aren’t sure where to begin?… That’s where we come in!
Whether you’re looking at dining chairs or a lounge suite, what you choose to upholster with is very important. Your textiles will help to create the overall mood for your home. Either create a feeling of luxury with strong leather, or go for a natural feeling by choosing a soft fabric.
The staff at Nordic Design Furniture have been assisting customers in designing unique furniture pieces for over 46 years. This means we’ve had plenty of experience! We can show you the fabric and leather options available to help create exactly the look you’re after.
Don’t forget to consider your lifestyle… Do you have young children in your house? Or a furry friend running about? Do you like entertaining family and friends on the weekends? These are all things to think about when selecting what materials to use – after all durability is key!
Discuss the different possibilities with us today – we can show you a wide range of colours, textures and styles. And because we only use the best quality products, you can feel confident in knowing it will stand the test of time – no matter what lifestyle you lead!
1. Never go past quality designer furniture…
Our number one tip – and probably most important, is to ensure you always buy quality furniture pieces. There’s nothing worse than rushing to have your new home ready for family and friends, then being left with furniture that won’t fit the task. That’s why we only produce the best in designer furniture. Using hardwood timbers and exceptional fabrics and leathers, our furniture is guaranteed to last a lifetime – no matter what your lifestyle.
By choosing designer furniture you’re choosing quality. This means a product that is built to the highest standard using the finest products and equipment. Our highly experienced craftspeople have the finest attention to detail to ensure each piece of furniture is refined, giving the best finish possible… every time.
The other benefit to choosing designer furniture is that it can be made to your exact requirements… And we think that’s pretty special! In a world of mass-produced products, it’s refreshing to experience a unique take on furniture. Have your say in the design, size, timber, fabric or leather and even the finish… Why wouldn’t you choose the very best for your new home?
