Everybody has different tastes when it comes to design; this becomes especially true when redecorating your home. However, sometimes it can be hard determining which style of furniture to choose for your décor because of the numerous possibilities. In addition, just because you have a clear picture in your mind, that doesn't necessarily make it easy to select the right pieces. This guide is here to assist you through the many different styles of furniture, which will make designing your dream home practically effortless!
If you want simplicity in your home, then the casual style is perfect for you. Sometimes a home can look cluttered if there are too many carvings, scroll designs, and hand-painted details. The informal pieces in a casual décor will create a relaxing, laid-back environment. Look for clean lines, lighter shades of wood, and minimal decorative details. If you want to warm up your casual furnishings a little, try adding brightly colored accent pieces such as pillows, vases, and paintings.
Contemporary / Transitional Furniture
If you aren't quite sure which style of furniture is the best fit for you, then consider contemporary pieces. Also referred to as transitional, the contemporary style is the perfect combination of the modern, traditional, and casual styles. Look for clean lines, smooth edges, and minimal carvings and decorative finishes. In addition, since the contemporary style is so versatile, feel free to either mix it up with any of the other styles or decorate an entire room with just contemporary pieces!

For a complete country décor, stick to lighter finished woods, and accent colors such as sage green, lavender, and sunflower yellow.

Look for pieces constructed of bamboo, rattan, and wicker, as well as decorative accents like copper, hand-painted floral motifs, mosaics, and palm trees.

Have you ever been to a rural farmhouse and just loved the look of its raw and natural décor? Now is your chance to transform your home into your dream ranch with rustic-styled accent furniture. Look for main pieces constructed of unfinished woods or distressed dark woods. To complete the rustic décor, try complimenting the wood pieces with horse themes, saddleseat bar stools, and Southwestern inspired prints. Also stick to accent colors in red, pine green, and sunset orange.
If you enjoy handsome furniture that is detailed with carvings and hand-painted motifs, the traditional style is best for you. Each piece has been crafted with other eras in mind, including Colonial times, the reign of Queen Anne, and Ancient Rome. Look for woods finished in rich stains such as mahogany and cherry. Also try to find pieces that have close attention to detail, such as scrolled iron, hand-carved pillars and feet, and hand-painted decorative motifs. To spice your room up a little, include a few ornate-styled pieces that have a special glimmer or extravagance.
