Customize Your Home with Furniture Style Pieces

If you’ve ever decorated a home in any capacity, you’ve likely agonized over the style of your furnishings. Furniture style is a huge factor in determining the overall style of your home, and there are just enough options to boggle your mind.

But after you’ve chosen the tables and chairs, the armoires, the chests, the dressers, you’re done, right?

Well, not quite. To add a custom touch to rooms that are not decked out in freestanding furniture, consider furniture style touches for a custom appearance – and not always with a custom price.

Furniture style typically translates to furniture-inspired detailing – carvings, panels, legs – found on furniture that you’d expect to see in a bedroom, dining room, or living room, transferred to spaces like bathrooms and kitchens. It’s largely traditional, but works with all styles – if you’d love that dresser in your bedroom, it may just work as a bathroom vanity or kitchen island.

In the kitchen, furniture style cabinets, islands, and molding change the standard kitchen to an inviting, homey haven:

Since office furniture is generally built more for function than aesthetics, furniture-style desks, hutches, and shelving can transform a home office. Try for a library-inspired (or stately office) look or a sleek modern style; add molding to standard bookshelves; repurpose a piece of furniture you love as a desk (add drawers/cabinets when necessary):
