Does Color Really Affect Mood?

Have you ever looked around and noticed that many major brands utilize similar colors? A huge part of learning design is color theory. Learning how colors affect mood and overall atmosphere can go a long ones. Color can make a huge difference even when choosing the decor and furniture in our El Paso. Take a look at these facts on the different effects of various shades and hues.

What Exactly is Color Psychology?

Visible color is made up of a single wavelength. When light combines, it can create other colors. Some colors even cancel each other out and create white. When looking at color it is important to remember that color holds cultural importance, too. In the U.S. white is a color that symbolizes purity, but in European and some Asian cultures white is worn for mourning.

Choosing the Right Color for Furniture and Decor

When you are choosing the furniture and design style for your home, you should strongly consider color theory. Different colors can indeed invoke different moods for you and your family. Take a look at the moods these commonly used colors can create:

Red: Words used to describe red are warm, passionate and intense! It can evoke strong emotions like love or anger. Many food companies use red as it is known to create hunger.

Blue: Blue is a shade that is widely loved by many people. It is also a color that represents calm. It can also convey a regal, professional or intelligent feel. It is a go to for many corporations trying to build trust through branding.

Green: Green is a calming color associated closely with nature. It can be used to create ideas of rebirth and renewal. It can be used to create a calm, pleasing mood.

Yellow: Yellow is a color known for happiness. The iconic happy face is yellow and the bright happy sun in the corner of drawings is yellow. It can be attention grabbing as well. Surprisingly, too much yellow can make babies feel fussy or cry more than normal.

How to Use Color for Evoking Mood

If you want to be bold and create a mood using color, the walls are the best place to start. Be sure to paint a small patch in different areas of the room to test how it looks in different lighting and different times of the day. Royal blue for a room or accent wall is currently a popular choice. This can convey a regal, cozy feel in a room. If you aren’t look for a bold look, or perhaps want to stay timeless, consider adding bright pops of color throughout a room. A small piece of furniture like an accent chair or a wall hanging can be a bright shade of red. You can pick neutrals like grey or brown for couches and use accents as well as rugs and hangings to add color. It can also be fun to create palettes with either matching or accenting colors.

How to Decide on Furniture Arrangement in Your Home

example of effective furniture arrangement with two reclining couches at a 90 degree angle, with a fireplace in the corner and a coffee table on a complementing rug in front of the two couchesThere is nothing more exciting and frustrating than deciding how to arrange your home furniture. First, make sure that you truly love your current furnishings. If not, no amount of rearranging will satisfy your vision. Luckily, National Furniture Liquidators in El Paso has quality furniture and home accessories at incredibly low prices. This way, you can find furnishings you really will love, giving you more incentive to put your home to rights. After you determine if your current pieces are up to your standards or not, the real work begins. There are 3 main things to consider when you are arranging a room. First, the size of the room you are arranging. Next, the theme or decor you want the room to reflect. Lastly, you have to play with the pieces you have to create the ideal arrangement for your vision.

Knowing Your Room Dimensions is Essential 

The very first thing to do in order to effectively arrange a room is measure, measure, measure. For example, a living room is a great room to begin with. First things first: what is the main purpose of the room? What is the most logical arrangement for that purpose? Let’s say the purpose is entertainment. So, let’s begin with your couches. Usually, sectionals are ideal for an entertainment-geared living room. However, if you have a smaller living room, a big sectional will take over the room. Unless that’s the look you are going for, perhaps consider putting the sectional in another room. Smaller living rooms benefit from a good central piece that the rest of the room can expand from. For example, one good couch accompanied by some nice sitting chairs and a coffee table can give the illusion of a much bigger room.

What is the Room’s Purpose and Theme?

The next thing to consider is the theme or decor you want for a room. While this seems like an afterthought, it is something that will affect the way the room looks. For exaview of a beautiful living room with no couches, instead with two chairs facing each other with side table and lamps mirroring each othermple, if you are going for a modern, simple look, avoid crowding or heavy looking furnishings. Modern themed home decor tends to run towards clean lines, simple but striking designs, and stark coloring. So,  a guest room you envision with this type of decor would require the appropriate size and styled furniture in order to successfully achieve the look. One way to achieve this is by deviating from the normal bed positions. Placing a twin bed long-wise against the wall can open up the room, as well as gives you a place for fun accent pillows or a striking headboard.

Play with Your Furniture 

In the end, you have to play with the dimensions of both the room and its furnishings. Play with traditional placements and don’t be afraid to try arrangements that are out of the box. Your home is a reflection of who you are, which means that there is no wrong way to place your things. Ideally, your house should flow in a way that is comfortable for you. So make it that way fearlessly.

You deserve to have the home you want and the ability to make that home look the way you want. National Furniture Liquidators has a huge selection of quality furniture and home decor that you can use to realize any design you want. From contemporary pieces to more traditional styles, find what will complement your style with us. Our friendly staff can help you with everything from measurements to home delivery.

Intimate Dining Or Family Style Dining Room Furniture?

dining room furniture offered at National Furniture Liquidators

Sharing a meal over a table is a tradition as old as time. There’s something special and sacred about the time spent with family and friends around a table. That’s why dining room furniture is such an important staple in a home. In El Paso, where family is very important to the culture, it is important to be selective when it comes to dining room furniture. Here are two kinds of dining room furniture and what each can offer your family.

Intimate Dining Room Furniture

This kind of dining furniture refers to small dining room sets – often a small table with four chairs – that are ideal for small eating areas. If your kitchen includes a small space to the side or a breakfast nook, then an intimate dining furniture set is ideal. Intimate dining room furniture is also ideal for everyday eating, when you and your family are getting a quick bite before work or during a short lunch break, for example. Intimate dining furniture is usually very simple and very easy to clean. At National Furniture Liquidators, we have a sizable selection of simple sets that are perfect for small spaces.

Family Dining Room Furnituredining room furniture offered at National Furniture Liquidators

This kind of furniture is just as the name implies – for the family. Dining furniture sets to accommodate family style dining are usually very long and include at least six chairs. You will often find family dining room furniture in formal dining rooms where families host special meals. Unlike the intimate dining sets that can easily fit in a breakfast nook, family dining room furniture can be large and elaborate. While dining room sets are built to be used, the furniture also functions as a decorative piece to complete the look of a formal dining room. National Furniture Liquidators offers many formal dining room sets and we can help you to find the one that fits your formal dining area best.  

Whether you are in El Paso looking for an intimate dining room set or a large family dining room set, we’ve got you covered. Visit National Furniture Liquidators or give us a call today. We’d be happy to help you find the perfect dining room furniture set for your home. Remember, when it comes to price and quality, nobody beats Shorty!

Sofas, Sofas Everywhere, So Which is Right for You?

Example of sofas offered at National Furniture Liquidators- the Darcy sofa in stone

There are many reasons why people buy new sofas. A new home, a move, or even just a new look can send you to the furniture store looking for the right sofa for your space. Different spaces necessitate different styles and spacing issues, so choosing the right one requires attention to detail and your own personal taste. At National Furniture Liquidators, we have a huge selection of quality sofas just waiting to be chosen for your new or updated space.

Before You Shop for Sofas

The first thing you want to do is take precise measurements of the room where you want your new sofa to live. You have to decide how much of the room you want to give over to the new addition. If you want to add tables or accent chairs, make sure  you take this into consideration. Do you want a sectional or a regular sofa? Size matters when it comes to choosing your new sofa or sofas, so make sure you know how much of the room will be taken up with your new purchases.

Narrowing Down the Sofa SelectionDarcy living room set with sofas

The first thing to do when you want to narrow down our impressive sofa selection is simple- what is your style? Are you looking for contemporary, traditional, or specific styles for your space? If your space is on the smaller side, modern sofas tend to be more streamlined, which can make the most of your space. You might not want to choose a full living room set for a small room, but smaller sofas like love-seats or one statement couch can do wonders for your space.

Quality Sofas for Your Consideration

At National Furniture Liquidators, we offer quality sofas from brands you trust, such as Ashley Furniture. Buying a new sofa doesn’t have to be a massively expensive undertaking when you have our selection at your disposal. Find the right size, color, pattern, and even matching coffee table and end table sets to make your selection pop in whatever home space you want.
