Using Coastal Style Furniture In An Older Home

An older home has many rooms with different designs, with stairways going here and there. There are old fashioned bathrooms, and large bedrooms, along with cozy living rooms and large dining rooms for family and friends. Large kitchens with plenty of space to eat in and in all the rooms there is plenty of space for the different types of coastal style furniture. Each room in an older home has its own unique personality and the coastal style furniture brings out that personality.

There are many different coastal furniture pieces that can be used in various rooms of your home. An old sofa, love seat or couch, reupholstered, and re-stuffed can make the personality of your living room shine. These items become "new" again and will be able to provide your family with hours of comfort, entertainment and family togetherness. For bedrooms you can take an older dresser and night stand, repaint them and distress them and they can bring a level of style and class to whatever room you decide to place them in.

People who care about the environment will find ways to use furniture that has been made from re-claimed wood. The coastal style furniture that has been made from re-claimed wood is strong and can be stained a light to a dark color. With some of the coastal style furniture being painted different colors, the stained re-claimed wood will help to calm things down.

Each room needs to have adequate lighting from either a table lamp or a ceiling light. Depending on the rooms size, as well as the rooms shape, will depend on which lamp or light is better designed for the room and many times, more often than now, both styles of lighting will be used. In bedrooms the ceiling light is good to have as a person walks in. A table lamp is good to have on the night stand to use for reading, looking through a magazine or studying. Table lamps and ceiling lights can be made from a variety of materials such as iron, wood, porcelain, glass or stone with a variety of different sizes and colors of lamp shades.

It does not make a difference what types of coastal furniture you place in an older home. Whether it be a light, a table or a sofa it will bring personality and charm to the room and all who enjoy it.
