Farmhouse Home Décor

The popularity of farmhouse decor is incredible nowadays, but making it look tasteful is the tricky part. When finding decorations, you should be careful about what you get and where you get it. Picking up the wrong things could age your space and make it look inauthentic. Here’s the England Furniture review on how to get your perfect farmhouse vision.

Rustic Knickknacks
When adding to your space, have an idea of a place you would like to emulate. Try keeping the knickknacks to a specific theme as if they all came from the same place. Some examples of themed places you could try is the Wild West or a Dairy Farm.

Distressed Wood
If you don’t have wood in your home that is exposed, try adding some furniture that is distressed. You can easily find it in stores or create it yourself. You could find ways to create this look by searching online. Creating piecing with reclaimed wood can be a fun project as well as a learning experience.

Natural Elements
Natural Elements is an old trick that Interior Designers and house stagers use to tie a room together. This trick is still being used today. Why go to the store for decorations to tie a room together when what you may need is right outside your front door.

Sliding Barn House Doors
Have you ever thought about getting a sliding barn house door installed in your home? These doors have been very popular in recent years. There are many different colors and types of sliding barn house doors that you could purchase. They will freshen up a space and will add the final farmhouse flare that you desire. The chair that’s placed in front of these yellow barn doors is the England Furniture Lynette Chair 6204AL.

England Furniture and Office Productivity!

Countless studies discussing the relationship between office productivity and the office environment have been released over the past decade.  These studies discuss the importance of lighting, color, acoustics, ergonomic, room temperature, and air quality.  Another key factor is the office layout and the furniture used to design your office space.

The idea of creating an open-office, or a part of your office as an intentional open-space, remains a popular choice.  It is also often viewed as a way to increase employee satisfaction and office productivity.  Whether you’re considering the open-office or open-space, the England Furniture Company encourages you to consider these factors before you make your purchases.

 

Boring Furniture = Ineffective Employees

Boring office furniture typically creates situations where office materials begin to pile up and clutter the environment.  As a result, people react in one of two extremes – irritation or laziness.   Either way, they tend to increasingly lose interest in their work and their productivity goes down.

 

Color Matters

As in the case of many interior design situations, color choice matters.  Various studies demonstrate how individuals are affected by one color or another.  But it’s not only the color choice that you should consider.  The intensity of the color (or colors) in your office also matter. Bright colors tend to stimulate the mind, while muted and soft colors tend to soothe us.

 

A Symbol of Your Culture

Your choice of office design and layout inherently creates a message to anyone who enters the space.  It is a symbol of the company the company culture.   An open-office, or an office with an open-space, informs employees that they work for an organization that is honest, transparent; and encourages communications, egalitarian relationships, brainstorming, and creativity.  It can also suggest that managers care about the health and well-being of their employees and team members.  Finally, it lets everyone know they are part of a team seeking to reach common visions and goals.

 

Cost Effective

If you’re seeking to create an open-office, you may be on track for saving money.  Open offices are typically much more cost-effective in terms of initial set-up, but they are also effective for cleaning, heating, and cooling purposes.  Open offices can also allow for the introduction of more employees, thus giving companies room to grow and expand without having to relocate.
