The famous American poet, Robert Frost, is quoted as saying, “Freedom lies in being bold.” While he was likely referencing the power of the written word, and not furniture, there is truth in this statement when it comes to your home. We encourage you to move away from being timid in your design choices and be bold.

 

Being bold is empowering, it demonstrates strength, and it allows for creative design. Bold can refer to colour, style, size, or even the placement of furniture and decor — and it’s definitely not something to be afraid of.

 

At Smitty’s, we often get questions from customers who are nervous about purchasing larger furniture pieces or dramatically designed pieces. In this blog, we hope to inspire you with some tips on how to make bold furniture work in your home.

 

Bold Designs

Not every home is bright or airy or spacious — but every home has the potential to show off its unique features by accenting the space with bold designs.

 

A bold design could be an artistically crafted console table (as with this gorgeous Hooker Furniture table above), or it can be colourful area rug or glam floor lamp.

 

Here are some simple ways to bring some bold design into your space without breaking your budget or completely redesigning your space:

 

Colourful and metallic accent piecesGlass and brassy gold candle hurricanes

Start small by adding a combination of colourful or metallic decorative pieces. These decor elements can be placed on side tables, coffee tables, bookshelves, dining tables, counters, and more.

 

Artwork

Changing your wall art can instantly refresh your entire room. Adding a strongly painted, colourful, or large painting is a great way to add some boldness into your space. You may also consider adding two or three smaller pieces and positioning them together as a group on your wall.

 

Coffee tables

Coffee tables are typically one of the focal points in your living room, which makes them an ideal piece to update with something bold. Consider glass, metal, wood, or a combination to make a strong statement.

 

Bold Furniture

If you are ready to replace larger furniture pieces in your home, then you have the opportunity to add some bold furniture and change the look and feel of your space.

 

The top furniture pieces that can help you make an instant statement in your home include:

  • Dining room table & chairs
  • Hutch
  • Living room entertainment console
  • Sofa
  • Bedroom suite

By updating these integral furniture pieces with new designs that offer bold features will give your home new life. It’s amazing the difference you can make by replacing a major item in the room.

 

In fact, often our customers will decide not to paint their rooms (saving themselves both hassle and money) because, after they’ve installed their new furniture, they discover that the whole room has changed for the better — and the painting project is no longer necessary.

Bed with wooden and fabric headboard and metal legs

For example, if you have a dark bedroom space, because of a darker paint on the walls or limited natural lighting, consider replacing your bedroom suite with a lighter coloured bed with a more pronounced headboard. A larger, bolder headboard will naturally draw your focus to the bed and surrounding furniture pieces, rather than the dark walls.

 

Whatever area of your home you are looking to update, don’t shy away from bold furniture. Making a strong choice in your design will showcase your space and will make you feel positive about your environment.


Visit us as Smitty’s and let’s update your home with some fantastic, bold furniture.
