We all buy furniture in Northern Ireland, but we never really take the time to discuss its importance and why we have it. We all feel that we need it, but we don’t think about why. Furniture has real importance in a home, and it is the thing that changes a house into a home. Furniture becomes a necessity and we design whole houses and rooms around it. In the past, furniture was bought to fulfil basic needs. We needed somewhere to sit down when eating, and we needed somewhere to put the bowls and plates, when we weren’t using them. Sitting on the floor to watch TV would never be considered, and so we had sofa’s and armchairs to make the experience more enjoyable.
Furniture, is now bought for its utility, but also bought as a symbol of luxury and also of status. Furniture brings real change to an empty room and what we use that room for. We don’t decide what we want to use the room for, until the furniture is put inside. We put a bed and wardrobe in a room and it becomes the bedroom, and we put a sofa and armchair in a room and that is now the living room. Today, we have so much furniture to choose from, and it is manufactured in a multitude of materials to suit all tastes and all pockets. Let’s look at other important reasons to have furniture.
- Creates Beauty – Furniture improves and enhances any room and changes it from a dull space, into something quite extraordinary. No room or home for that matter, is really complete until it gets its allocation of functional and beautiful furniture. Each room can be made to look different and stand out as an individual room. We can create themes in a particular room, using the furniture chosen and we can match it to the decor or vise versa.
- Creates Functionality – Without the necessary furniture in a room, we would be unable to function properly. Imagine your kitchen with no dining table and chairs or no cabinets. If there were no kitchen units or work tops, how could we prepare meals and where would we put them, when we have prepared them. Similarly, settling down to watch TV without the comfort of a sofa and comfortable armchairs, would be impossible. Furniture gives meaning to any room and any furniture shop in Belfast will provide you with everything you need.
- Life Is Easier – Having furniture all through your home, just makes your life so much easier due to its functionality. If you want to rest your legs and sit down on a kitchen chair or armchair, then it’s there for your convenience. If you are tired after a long day at the office, then have a lie down on the comfortable sofa or even better,lie down on your comfortable bed. The furniture provides the warmth that every home needs, and gives you piece of mind, when you most need it.
