Traditional Decor and Its Relevance Today

A lot of the pieces in our furniture store Toronto would be classified under the category of “Traditional Decor”. However, at first glance, customers don’t associate these pieces with the name.

“Traditional decor” is often associated with “out-dated” or “old fashioned” furniture; the kind you would see in a museum – made of wood and olden style designs, but this doesn’t ring true with what traditional decor really is.

Traditional decor gives a home substance that’s both comforting and welcoming, and over the years, this type of decor in our furniture store Toronto has changed from a feeling of stuffiness to a more fresh and lively look.

5 Tips for Small Spaces

1. Paint Colours
When it comes to paint colours for a small space white is NOT your only option! Although most people have a fear of painting with dark colours, they are actually great for small spaces. Dark colours camouflages the fact that it’s a small space, gives a perception of depth and gives the overall illusion that it’s a bigger space.

Almost everyone knows nowadays that the use of mirrors in small spaces can definitely make a space appear larger. Oversized mirrors that can just lean up against a wall give the illusion a room is larger and that it continues on. Also choosing furniture pieces that are made with glass, Lucite or acrylic are great for areas where space is tight. The ability to see through the piece can open up a space!
