How to Spice Up Your Louisville Home and Keep Up With Current Trends

Ashley Furniture HomeStoreStop! Look at your surroundings, and think of the first thing you noticed. Aside from the location, you probably noticed if you felt comfortable, safe, relaxed and what you were sitting on and the decor. That’s right, I am talking about furniture. It’s a topic that not many people talk about, but I think it is important because most people don’t notice their own furniture unless they hate it or it makes them uncomfortable. Be honest, did you notice the detail of the furniture you are around right now until I asked you about it?

When I talk to people about furniture in their home, I normally hear two kinds of remarks rationalizations and excuses:

  • “I’ve had this forever and I can’t find anything I will like”
  • “My parents gave me this because they didn’t want it”
  • “It’s too expensive”
  • “I have to find someone to move it”
  • “Sales people scare me”
  • “I don’t know how to update my house”

The list could go on and on! I am here to tell you that these excuses and rationalizations have no merit at any Louisville area Ashley Furniture HomeStore!

That’s okay! We can help! Ashley Furniture puts out a monthly magazine so that we can keep current on today’s styles! In dining areas, the switch from formal dining to everyday casual dining is making a huge impact! We suggest a counter height or pub height dining table for any busy family. The benefit to these higher tables is not just being current, but adding the illusion of a bigger room since you can see under them, unlike the traditional formal dining set!

In living areas, the current trend is pulling away from the bulky sofas our parent’s had, and moving towards the sleeker designs of our Metro Modern category! Switching the pillows in the living area can also give your furniture new life! Pairing a pillow with a fun design or even a pillow with a three dimensional design can make your space pop!

Bedrooms are also making the same switch that living areas are. Trends in the bedrooms include lower platform beds and upholstered beds. The main key to staying current is accessories, accessories, accessories! Pairing the furniture you love with a complementing piece of art will transform any room from “okay” to “WOW!” Picking the right lamps, art, tabletop accessories and even pillows will turn you into a sought after designer. We are constantly updating our floors to accommodate for all the new trends!
