When you want to add a touch of brightness, space and light to your home, heavy looking furniture can make your home feel dark and uninviting. It’s especially the case when you’re working with a small space, like a kid’s bedroom or a home office, when you want to maximise the feeling of room, and create somewhere relaxing and comfortable to be. Painted pine or oak furniture is a great option when you want to combine high quality materials with a bright visual look. Solid wood furniture such as desks, beds and console tables all work well in painted wood styles, being built in a sturdy and reliable design, while combined with a lovely visual look. Check out some top tips after the break…
Painted furniture is ideal for bedrooms, as it combines good quality materials (a must have if you want furniture that will last for years, and not just for a few months) and a cosy, stylish look. Pine and Ash furniture are both popular materials in painted furniture and can be found in a range of furnishing styles for the bedroom – in every item from large master beds with painted frames, to bedroom chests of drawers. In a neutral shade like off-white, they are ideal for childen’s bedrooms of all ages, and can be personalised beautifully with soft furnishing touches like rugs, throws and cushions.
As well as bedroom furnishing, painted pine and ash furniture is very useful around the rest of the home too. In the dining room or kitchen, a cosy two-seating dining table is perfect when you just want a small spot to sit and eat at – handy for breakfast, or even finishing some kitchen chores. Combining easy to clean white with natural accents brings the wood to life.
Painted furniture can also give a pretty, rustic look, especially when combined with traditional design styles. Perfect when you want to bring some personality to a space, such as a home office. A classic looking two pedestal desk or dressing table is both practical, with a range of drawers on both sides, and attractive – and prevented from looking stuffy or overbearing with its bright white finish.
Painted furniture is available in a range of options aside from white too, so you can tailor it to suit your home decor, personal styles and tastes. As well as Brilliant White, Off White you can also find furnishing in shades such Lichen Green, Bone Grey or Truffle, perfect for adding some warmth and gentle colour to your home.
