It's easy to decorate an open-plan room when using Amish furniture

by Tom Grimes

Certain living spaces, like open-plan rooms where only one wall is solid, may be harder to decorate than other, more conventional areas. But, by utilizing the right pieces of Amish furniture, it's easy to create a functional yet stylish room.

Before filling the space with furniture, HGTV.com reminds homeowners to use the same flooring throughout the rooms, as it keeps the eye moving and makes the space seem bigger. When it is time to select furniture, however, homeowners must get creative due to the lack of useable wall space.

An Amish madearmoire is a great piece to set against the full wall. It offers an abundance of storage space and can become the room's focal point. When company comes over, homeowners can close the wall unit's doors and enjoy the Amish furniture's detail and craftsmanship.

According to the Chicago Sun Times' website, designer Rosemary Sadez Friedmann reminds homeowners that creative storage is imperative in rooms without wall space that support shelving and cabinets. "Use a trunk as the cocktail table so it can double as a storage unit," the interior designer told the news source. End tables with drawers are another great way to utilize space and create more storage.

To unite the room's various pieces, homeowners may want to purchase items from a specific Amish furniture collection. Classic Shaker-style pieces will infuse a room with traditional elegance, while heritage pine furniture can fill the living space with rustic charm.ADNFCR-3308-ID-19802997-ADNFCR
