Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

#1) SIT BACK AND RELAX

Outdoor spaces are for entertaining and enjoying good weather, good food, and good company. So be sure to pick out a dining set the provides a comfy and communal atmosphere and is able to withstand the elements. You can sit back and relax knowing that our outdoor furniture is made with long lasting, durable aluminum and the fabric is made with high performing and easy-care Nuevella.

From tall shrubs and trees to small succulents, have fun filling vases and pots of all shapes and sizes with plenty of foliage. This will create a luscious landscape as well as an intimate secluded area.

Every outdoor oasis needs something to get fired up about – a fire pit table! There’s not need to stop the fun when the sun goes down. For those cool summer nights, light up the fire and gather ’round the table. You and your guests will love the warm atmosphere created by the flickering flames.

Delightful Dining

Friday, November 18th, 2016

Now is the season for large family gatherings and holiday parties.  Whether you are hosting party for friends or having your entire family over for the holidays, a meal is commonly the main event. If you have a formal dining room or a more casual space next to your kitchen for your table, it is important that your table and chairs are functional and comfortable while still showing your style. It is best to consider how and who will be using your dining room before designing the space. Are you looking for a formal room or a casual space your family uses every day? Will you need extra space and seating for many guests or space for small groups? What shape and size works best for the room?

The first thing to decide is the style of table you are looking for. The style and layout of the rest of your house will help determine what style will work best for you.  If you have a separate dining room, you may opt for a more formal style. Many of today’s houses have open floor plans where the kitchen, dining and living room spaces flow together or are laid out in a great room. Those spaces tend to be more casual in style.  Countertop height tables and stools are also becoming more popular but are definitely on the casual side.

.

.

Even more important than style, is the size of your table.  No matter how good it looks, if the furniture does not function as you need it, you will regret it. Tables come in many shapes and sizes. There are three main shapes of dining tables; round/ oval, rectangular, and square. Each shape has its benefits but not all spaces will work for any shape. Round and oval table are good for small spaces because they have no corners making it easier to get around the table. They promote conversation because it is easy to see everyone seated around the table.  Rectangular tables are the most readily available.  Rectangular tables vary is greatly in size and may be adjustable for different situations. The width of the table is also important.  Too wide and you will not be able to converse easily around the table. Too narrow and there is not enough room for table settings and serving platters.  Between 36-48” is about the widest you should go. Square tables are probably the hardest to fit in a space and are best for small intimate groups.

It is important to measure to determine which shape best fits your space. Keep in mind for easy traffic flow there should be 36-48” of space between the wall or furniture and the edge of the table. Think about being able to walk behind someone while they are sitting at the table. It is a good idea to measure before you starting shopping.  An easy way to see how much space a table will take up in your room is to use a bed sheet or newspapers laid out in the shape and size. This allows you to visualize what size will fit in your room and works best for you.

.

.

Another consideration is the number people you plan on seating at the table. Each person needs about 24” of eating space, so a 72” table fits a three people comfortably on each long side and one on each end.  Leaves are a great way to fit more people for larger gatherings. However, it is still necessary to have enough space for traffic to flow around the table.  Round or oval tables with pedestals are easier to fit people around them and may accommodate extra seating.

When you think of dining tables, an image of a wood table probably comes to mind. Hard woods such as hickory, oak, maple, and cherry are great for tables. Wood tables are available in a variety of styles and finishes to fit any room. Some may have smooth finishes where others are distressed and rustic. From elegant and formal dining tables to rustic farmhouse tables, it is possible to find the perfect table for your style.

.

.

Wood is may be the most common material used for dining tables but it is not the only option.  Laminate top tables are more durable and work well as kitchen tables or for families. Glass tops are stylish choice and add a touch of modern light to a space.  A glass table will fit many decors from sleek contemporary to classic and elegant depending on the legs or pedestal. In smaller rooms, glass top tables appear to take up less space and give the room an open feel. Metal legs are common and recently metal tops are an option. For an added expense, stone is an excellent choice for table top.

After you have selected a table, next you need chairs.  There are an infinite number of chair styles available.  For a formal dining room, chairs that match the table really complete the look. To update formal style and make them more current, consider adding an upholstered chair at each end of the table.  Mix and match colors and styles for an eclectic look.  Upholstered chairs are a sophisticated look but consider the fabric when you purchase. Delicate fabrics may stain easily, while leather, vinyl, polyesters or synthetics are much easier to clean.

.

.

You and your guests will enjoy your table more if the chairs are comfortable. Consider the depth and width, of the chair seat and back, to determine the style most comfortable for you. 22” inches is a good width for an armless chair. Avoid chairs narrower than 17”.  18-19” is the ideal seat height for as dining chair. A good rule of thumb is to allow at least 12” from the top of the seat to the edge of the table. The size of your table will also affect the scale of you chair. Some chairs are heavier than others and can be harder to move for children and the elderly.

Whether its gets used every day or only a few times a year, a dining room table should be both functional and stylish.  At Hatch Furniture, we have a large selection of dining and kitchen tables of all sizes, shapes, and styles. Mix and match tables and chairs to find your perfect set.  Or customize a table and chairs with our Amish line.  Let our experienced staff help you create the dining space you have always wanted.

Mix This with That – How to Blend Different Styles

Friday, November 4th, 2016

Trying to find a balance between different personal styles within a shared space can seem overwhelming or even impossible.  The key to blending styles is understanding that it is possible to have more than one style present in your home and still have it feel like it all goes together.  There are several ways to successfully combine pieces that don’t “match” if you find a common element to tie everything together.  This can easily be done through color and texture.  You can take a natural wood texture, mix it with clean modern lines and add pops of color that will flow from one space to another to give your home a natural flow.

Mix this with that

In this sample mood board, we have combined the clean modern lines of the main furniture pieces with rustic wood textures and classic colors like navy and red. I like the idea of layering the two rugs together to add another modern design element. Change out the pillows on the sofa to incorporate the colors of the rugs and add similar color tones to the accessories in the dining area to successfully combine these styles together for a natural flow. I imagine this as an open concept space, but this design idea would still be successful if the main living space was separate from the dining space.

 

Scale is key in any home design plan, try to find pieces that make sense together regarding size.  So the idea is to match in scale, not in size.  Matching lines and shapes can also give some balance when mixing styles.  Avoid doing one complete style in one room and another style in a separate room.  It’s best to distribute the different styles throughout the home to give balance and create a cohesive design throughout your home.  Find at least one or two commons element to tie the common spaces of your home together to achieve that balance.

Never Out of Style

Friday, October 21st, 2016

Trends are fleeting, by their very definition. What’s hot now might be old hat next year – or even fall out of favor by next season. But there are some décor elements that have a universal appeal and never seem to go out of style. These classics are easy to incorporate in your home, and they’ll look great next to your trendier pieces.

Your Evolving Decor

Friday, July 15th, 2016

Moving into a new place is a life-changing milestone, and making it feel like home can mean a lot of décor decisions.  Whether you’re starting out or starting over, furnishing an empty home is a big job to tackle.  Keep a few of these tips in mind, and you’ll get through the process.

One room at a time

The reality is that most people don’t buy every piece for every room as soon as they get a new home. Transforming all at once is normally not practical and will leave you frustrated and overwhelmed.

Start with the room you’ll be spending the most time in – the bedroom or living room, most likely.  Having a retreat that looks furnished and feels lived in will go a long way towards helping you feel at home.

A sofa is a basic item in most homes.  As such, it’s worth investing in a good one. Likewise, find a quality supportive mattress.  These are items you’ll be keeping long-term and spending lots of time using.

It’s a good idea to consider traffic flow, what size pieces are required, how natural light changes over the course of the day, and how each room will be used.

Decide what you like

It helps to go shopping with inspiration in mind – such as a style you like or a color palette.  Pieces that reflect your own style bring personality to your space.  Current trends favor a collected look, full of variation yet cohesive.  So it’s okay if your older pieces don’t look exactly like the new additions.  You can tie them together with similar shapes, colors, or finishes.

Use color, texture or a specific pattern for your style inspiration

Are you the type who embraces each new fashion?  Or do you prefer styling that will stand the test of time?  Think about how long you want to live with your new furniture.  Some elements will always be in style, but if you think you might outgrow it quickly, you might not want to invest.

As you add new furnishings, consider multi-functional pieces or items that could work in more than one room. Chances are, you’ll move again.  If you plan on taking it with you to future homes it might have more of a life span if it’s suited to additional uses.

Consider multi-functional pieces that could work in a variety of rooms

Be patient!

Don’t trap yourself with the idea that the room must be finalized at a set date.  It’s not going to be perfect instantly, especially if it’s your first home.  You’ll be happier with your living space if the furnishings are functional and meaningful to you.  If you need to wait for a few more paychecks before making the next purchase or if you want to find just the right dining table, it’s okay not to rush – the room will still unfold.

The best spaces evolve over time and have the benefit of several edits.  Truly great rooms have layers.  You may edit and re-edit many times before you find perfection.  Either way – enjoy the process!

3 Simple Solutions to Transform Any Room

Thursday, June 2nd, 2016

We all have that one room in our home that needs a little boost, but knowing where to start and what that room exactly needs can be overwhelming.  The solution can be more simple than you think and you don’t have to break the bank to achieve the look you want.  So where is the best place to start?  This of course is where most of us get stuck, so often times we just give up or put it off for another day.  If you have been struggling with lackluster room, this post offers 3 simple solutions to get you started with your room transformation.

The first simple solution is to anchor your space with an area rug.  Not only does this give you a foundation for your room, but you can also gather inspiration to help you design the rest of your room.  In this post, I gathered inspiration from the color and wool texture of the rug shown in the photo below to help me choose the next element, and move on to solution #2.

Create a foundation for your space with an area rug

Set a Focal Point

The second simple solution to help transform the look of your room is to create a focal point, something that will draw your eye into the room.  This is easily achieved with a single over sized piece of art, large framed prints or an interesting wall clock. If you are working with a small room, consider an over sized mirror in place of art, to brighten things up and add depth to your space.

 

 

With the foundation and focal point set in your room, we can now focus on solution number three, which is lighting.  A pair of lamps will add a cohesive element to the room by repeating the same color, shape or pattern.  A floor lamp will add height and dimension to your space.  Or perhaps your room calls for a hanging lamp or chandelier.  You can set the mood with soft lighting in a space that is designed for relaxation, or use brighter light for reading or working at a desk.  It is good to consider both functionality and design when choosing how to light your space.

Enhance the look of your space with lighting

If you want to think outside the box, consider a modern chandelier with a touch of elegance. This lighting option adds an extra design element, great for a bedroom or dining area.

With these 3 simple solutions, you now have a solid foundation to finish your room with fun accessories or personal memorabilia. Add in pillows, throws, vases and plants to unify the color scheme and fill in empty spaces.
