Furniture and Wall Color: All you need to know about this combination


You bring home a grandeur piece of furniture to make your place look astounding. Simultaneously, you also have plans to give a new look to the walls of your abode either by paint or wallpapers. But you are in doldrums as to which color should be used to paint the wall so as to make it match with the intelligently crafted wood piece you just brought at your home.

Don’t bite your lips in vexation as we are here to take  you out of this dilemma.

Matching is Not Essential: It is not necessary for the wall color to exactly match with that of furniture. But at least each of them should complement the other. Note the color of your furniture and chose a light shade of the same color for your walls.

Look Down First: Have a look at the floor of your room before your purchase furniture. Sometime it so happens that you are able to match the color of your furniture with that of your walls but when once you fill your room with furniture, it refuses to match with the color of your floor and hence gives an odd ambience. So whether it is carpet, wooden flooring, tiles  or marble, note the color before making a purchase.

Find the Dominating Color: In case, you are not planning to buying a new furniture which could match the color with your walls, then make a note of that color in your room which dominates other color. Choose the furniture of that color or an equivalent shade and the final result of this fusion would be an icing on the cake for the décor of your room.

At Home By Shekhavati, along with an elegant and wide range of furniture to choose from, we offer furniture of various styles and design that are sure to go with the ambience of your abode.

Look for these things before buying an Outdoor Furniture Cover

You might think that what’s there in the furniture cover but many factors should be considered before making a purchase of an outdoor furniture cover.

Durability: The cover which you are purchasing should not easily damage in large storms and scorching heat. If the material is not strong enough to withstand the tear, then it’s better to switch to other cover made of either canvas or waterproof polyester blend.

Thickness: Go with an outdoor furniture cover which has a thickness of at least 0.0010 inch. Since an outdoor cover has to bear with all the season, it should be thick enough to protect the furniture.

Waterproof: Go for a cover that does not absorb rainwater and water from the snow when it melts. A waterproof outdoor furniture cover will prevent water and hence protect the furniture from damaging.

Proper Size: Don’t prefer a size which is too small and also too large. In both the cases, dust finds its way to the furniture and end up spoiling it. It is better to go with a cover which fits on the furniture properly.

Add-on: Look for furniture covers that have straps to tie them and prevent them from blowing away from the furniture.
