If you’ve recently made the decision to include traditional reproduction antique furniture into your home, there are a few points you need to consider. Like with any furniture, you need to ensure that it is the best fit for your home, and its style fits in with existing decor and size. Coffee tables, display cabinets and chests of drawers are all perfect choices when introducing reproduction furniture to your home, but where do you start?
A reproduction furniture shop in Leeds, Kelvin Furniture is home to hundreds of traditional style pieces all lovingly finished in mahogany and yew. Whilst our store remains temporarily closed, we are still delivering our gorgeous pieces to ones across the UK. Read our article below to discover what to consider when you buy reproduction furniture for the first time.
Although it may be tempting to jump in the deep end and buy a stunning reproduction dining table or wardrobe, it’s best to start small to see how the pieces could look in your home. Occasional furniture such as hall tables and display cabinets are the optimal choices for beginners, as they’re easy to maintain and will still make a big statement, even if you do go small.
Just because you’re starting small doesn’t mean the piece won’t make a big statement. Reproduction antique furniture has the ability to draw in attention with its elegant features and classic finish. By starting small, you can decide how you feel about having reproduction pieces in your home, and then add more. However, don’t add too many pieces to your home, as it can take away from the unique feel. Here at our Morley furniture shop, we stock gorgeous occasional furniture, which you can view here.
Consider Your Current Decor
Think about your home currently, particularly the room that you want to add reproduction antique furniture to. What is its colour scheme? What furniture do you already have there? What’s your personal style? All of these questions need to be answered when buying reproduction pieces for the first time. It’s all too common when individuals rush into buying a gorgeous piece of furniture and realising it doesn’t match with their current decor.
Here at Kelvin Furniture, we stock and sell stunning reproduction antique furniture perfect for any home and decor. Our occasional tables come in a range of different finishes for you to choose from, and can fit perfect with your home style and arrangements. Buying reproduction furniture doesn’t have to be a difficult decision, so ensuring you have all the correct sizings and information can make the process a whole lot easier.
Look For a Reputable Retailer
Another way to ensure you get the most stunning and practical piece for your home is by purchasing from a reputable antique furniture salesperson. Some people can fall foul to fakes and overpriced pieces, and the furniture can even end up fading due to bad gloss work or being less durable than their genuine counterparts. Look into the background of a store before purchasing to ensure you aren’t being scammed.
