4 Furniture Tips For Your New Home

Settling into a new home is a very exciting time! But it can also be mixed with 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 some key tips when it comes to buying your new furniture – so let’s get right into it!


4. Choosing the Right Timber…

The basis for almost every piece of furniture is the timber. Do you prefer something dark and rich in colour? Or do you want to keep your space lighter by choosing a softer tone? There are multiple options…

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 for your home.

By choosing the best hardwood timbers available, you’ll have furniture that looks and feels amazing for many years. As you’ll have furniture pieces that live in your home for years, maintaining the same level of quality from day one means it will never feel dull… And what more could you want?


3. Dining Furniture – Perfect for Any Occasion

The dining area is probably one of the most used spots of the house. It’s a place where you gather as a family for meals at all times of the day. It’s also a place for guests to join you when catching up on lost time.

There are a few things to think about when it comes to designing a 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, and the timber. Of course, the number one thing you need to determine is the size.

How much room do you have in your dining area? Perhaps it’s an unusually shaped space 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 into an extension so come in to see the wide range of options available!


2. The Right Upholstery Selections…

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. Create a feeling of luxury with strong leather, or to go for a natural feeling choose 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.

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.

1. Most Importantly… Choosing Quality

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 fabric 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?
