A Touch Of Vintage: Tips For Adding Vintage Furniture Into Your Home

Ricardo Castillo

No matter what style of home you have, adding a few pieces of vintage furniture into your home is a great way to give any room a new look. Vintage furniture in a modern home can create a pleasing contrast and will complement cottage or farmhouse styles. Learning tips for blending vintage furniture with your current furniture and interior design style will help you mix and match like a pro.

A little goes a long way

Start by introducing one or two vintage pieces into your home. This allows you to highlight a beautiful piece of vintage furniture and give it the attention it deserves. Adding too many items can distract from the lovely antique quality you want to show off.

For instance, you may want to add a vintage accent chair to a modern living room. This maintains the modern look of the room while adding a touch of nostalgia. A vintage table paired with farmhouse chairs can provide a nice contrast in a dining room or kitchen.

Think outside the box

You don't have to use a piece of furniture as intended. Getting creative with how a piece of furniture is used can enhance your interior design. It's also fun to see how many different uses you can get from a specific piece of vintage furniture

For instance, an old secretary desk can be turned into a coffee bar or tea station in the kitchen or living room. A vintage wardrobe can be used in a family room for additional storage. A vintage dresser can be used as an accent table in a hallway or in a home office for storing supplies.

Create a focal point in the room

Proudly show off your vintage furniture finds by using them to create a focal point in a room. Place a dry sink in a kitchen corner and decorate it for each season. Place a vintage desk in the corner of a home office to display your favorite books.

A vintage nightstand will make a lovely accent table beside a cozy fireplace to display family photos. A round vintage coffee table can be used in an entryway to welcome guests with a touch of the past.

Welcoming a few pieces of vintage furniture into your home is a fun way to blend the old with the new. Learning how to use vintage furniture to complement or contrast your interior design style will help you achieve the best outcome. Look for vintage furniture for sale today to get started.
