Buying furniture is a big expense, so the last thing you want to do is invest in something that looks dated. If you want to make the most out of your purchase, you’ve got to know what the hottest furniture trends are.
Here are 6 of them:
1. Storage space that looks cool
Let’s face it — we’ve all got a ton of stuff! If you’re like most people, you probably don’t know how you accumulated all of it, but you’ve got to find a place to put it. Luckily, one of the hottest furniture trends of 2013 involves storing all of your stuff in a place that looks cool.
For example, there are plenty of great-looking bed frames that come with storage drawers at the bottom of them. Or, you can turn your living room into a secret storage room by investing in ottomans that are hollowed out in the middle — perfect for stashing stuff so that no one sees any clutter!
2. A bold dining set
No matter what kind of food you’re serving up, you need a cool place to eat it in. Luckily, you don’t necessarily have to buy a giant dining set in order to be bold. You can make just as much of a statement by investing in a dining room set that’s got a cool finish, or one that’s got wild curves instead of traditional corners.
3. Patterns that exceed your imagination
Forget about classic solid colors! If you want the trendiest furniture of 2013, you’ve got to embrace patterns. And, you don’t have to settle for just one. It’s no longer a faux pas to combine patterns, so see what catches your eye, then mix and match to create a décor that’s all your own!
4. Cool white
If you’re looking for a way to calm down your space — like, for example, in your master bedroom — don’t go with patterns. Instead, you can be just as trendy by indulging in bright white. White is a natural symbol or purity and innocence, so it will instantly relax you. And, as an added benefit, it makes rooms look light and airy — perfect for making your rooms appear larger than they really are!
5. Mix and match your time periods
Before, you had to pick a décor — modern or antique. Today, though, it’s perfectly acceptable to take advantage of both! For example, put an antique end table next to your modern couch. Just like the patterns, the mixing and matching you do will create a décor that perfectly represents your personality.
6. Great deals
Even though the recession is getting smaller and smaller in the rearview mirror, many people are still hesitant to make big purchases — like, for example, buying a whole bunch of new furniture. As a result, both traditional furniture stores and online merchants are offering some great deals.
Buy online, and you may get free shipping. Or, shop in person, and you may get to waive the delivery fee. Just keep your eyes peeled, and you could get all of the furniture you need, at a price that’s much lower that you thought.
That’s a trend that we hope will never go out of style!
