Making sure you fill your home with furniture that’s useful all year round might seem difficult as you want it to be functional for all the seasons, come rain or shine. To save you swapping furniture around and trying to find storage, we’ve put together 4 beautiful furniture ideas that you can use all year round without having to change it up each season.
- Vertical Radiators
Radiators don’t just serve a functional purpose; they can actually provide a unique way of decorating your walls. Installing vertical radiators can elongate the height of a room and come in a range of different styles and finishes. This way even during the summer, your radiator will look like a statement piece of furniture and not just a standard fixture. As vertical radiators make a room feel more spacious, they’re great for warmer days as they open up the room and allow sunlight to fill the area.
Chandeliers can produce enough light to brighten the whole room without being too harsh so they’re ideal for gloomy winter days. Their soft glow creates a welcoming feeling, allowing them to chase any frosty blues away.Chandeliers aren’t just the traditional, dangly type that you may be used to. Nowadays, they’re available in a wide range of styles and materials so you’ll be sure to find one that fits your modern home. If you do opt for a dazzling, glass chandelier they’ll look just as glorious in the sunshine too as they catch the rays and cast a sparkle throughout the room.
- Hanging Seats
Being comfortable is one of the most difficult things to get right when choosing a chair. In the winter your firm, cool seat won’t offer any cosiness. And in the summer the poofy, blanket-covered armchair will only make you hotter. This is why a hanging seat can provide you with the best combination of the two. During the summer you can relax comfortably in the sunshine without overheating. When the days turn chilly, a hanging seat will allow you to bundle up inside of it and provide maximum comfort.
- Bar Carts
The duality of a bar cart is perfect for the changing seasons and they’re easily portable as well. In the warmer months, you can use it outside to display all the wonderful refreshing drinks you’ve made for your guests. And then in the winter, you bring it indoors and use it as a side table to hold your warming hot chocolate and books.
Choosing furniture that works for you during all seasons can take a little research. There is more to furniture than having a simple division between what makes it outdoors and what makes it indoors. How you use the furniture and how benefits your home is more important than having the most durable picnic table that can last all winter. No matter your style or décor, adding simple furnishings with dual purposes can really help you get the most out of it all year round.
