When it comes to choosing your new glass furniture, there are a few things that you need to bear in mind. Other than the obvious things, such as measuring your rooms to make sure you buy the right size, consider whether you want a clear or frosted glass effect. A clear effect is more contemporary and crisp, but frosted glass is more forgiving when it comes to smudges or streaks. Also think about what chairs to choose to complement your new glass table – metal is a contemporary choice, but leather chairs also work well and are much more comfortable for dining.
Glass is a wonderful material for furniture because of its light reflecting properties. Every interior designer knows that mirrors reflect light around a room, making it appear more spacious, lighter and brighter. A similar effect can be achieved by using glass in your interior design – a glass table used for a small dining room will make the room appear bigger because it will reflect light, rather than absorb it.

It is best to measure our living room space before we purchase anything from a shop; we would want to purchase a rug that fits our room space, not too big and not too small depending what we are going to use it. We can try to simulate the actual space consumed by placing a tape, book, bottle, etc., which indicate each corner of a rug. If we plan to place furniture on top, then we can use the same method to do so, especially when we want to place larger furniture like living room furniture like coffee table and sofa.
Size is Important – A sofa can take up a fair bit of room in a lounge, so you should make sure you have the room to accommodate your choice. That fabulous 88 inch recliner might catch your eye in the showroom or even in the photograph online, but once you have paid for it and had it delivered to your home, it might look just a tiny bit bigger. An 88 inch sofa is 7 ft 4 inches wide, and then you need the room either side of it. You don’t get much change out of 12 feet once it has been installed with walking space all round. Four long paces, so make sure you have that available in your living room – many people find that their eyes are larger than their lounges when it comes to sofas.
One of the most beautiful living rooms I have ever been in had a bright red, large, rectangular area rug in the middle of the golden oak floor. The red rug was stunning and simple, but brought energy to an otherwise nondescript room. Utilizing color on your living room floor will change the way your living room feels.
