How to luxe up your living room this season
If you fancy sprucing yours up for autumn/winter, the stylish folk at Delcor are here to help. Take note of their top tips and get snug!
Add texture, colour and layers with knitted blankets and throws. Oversized chunky knits will keep you toasty and they can be easily changed to suit the season and your decor. Layering is good, too, so invest in several, all differing in materials and colours so they complement each other. If your sofa is patterned, then go for single colours.
Forget grey and white this winter; it’s all about the colour. Add a touch of opulence and create a bold palette with rich, deep tones for the new season. Blues, forest green and brick red work well, either on their own or grouped together. Top prints for AW19 include orals, tropical and lavish thematic scenes. Opt for wallpaper, or be brave and invest in a statement sofa, chair or footstool.
Set the mood with dimmable lights and lamps – both of which create soft, cosy lighting. Brass, bronze and glass lamps, tables and mirrors cleverly bounce the light around a room, making it twinkle on a winter’s night and creating the feeling of warmth. Make your mirror a focal point in your living room and go as large as the room can take, being creative with placing. Large, floor-standing mirrors are set to be popular in living rooms come the new season.
Aside from the bedroom, the living room should be the most comfortable room in your home – especially during the chillier months. Soft velvets and warm merino wool provide a luxurious touch to upholstered pieces and soft furnishings. Delicately-soft nubuck leather is one of our go-to textures. Warm things up with fluffy cushions and patterned throws to create an inviting, seasonal look
Will it Fit?
It is important to make sure that your new Delcor furniture will fit into your home. This quick guide will help you to work out if your furniture will fit into your room via doors, hallways and stairs.
If it does not fit, then don’t worry - all of our furniture is custom made and for a nominal charge is able to come apart and be assembled on-site by our qualified delivery team.
Firstly, note down the length, depth and height of your furniture. This information can be found on the product pages of our website.
Let's start at the front door. Open the door as wide as possible and measure the distance between the outer edge of the door to the inner edge of your doorframe at its narrowest point.
Compare the width of your doorframe with the height of your item allowing a little wiggle room on either side. This will determine if we can take the item through on its side. If the door width is greater than the height of your item, then it will fit through.
If the width of your front door is too narrow, then our delivery team can try to bring your item through upright. In this case, measure the height of your doorway making sure that it is greater than your item width. Again, check that there is some wiggle room.
If it does not fit give us a call as we can take off the legs or look at alternatives such as taking your furniture apart and assembling it on-site.
We need to make sure your furniture can get into the room that you’d like it to sit in. Measure the width of any areas that the item must pass through, such as hallways and internal doors at their narrowest points.
Remember to take note of possible obstructions such as radiators, shelving, skirting boards and light fittings. As long as the width at the narrowest point is greater than the height of your item, then your furniture will fit.
If your furniture needs to go up any stairs, measure the width of the staircase at its narrowest point. Remember to take any handrails or light fixtures into account. If this distance is wider than the height of your item then it should fit.
If you have a bannister and the furniture needs to be lifted over it, check that the distance between the bannister and the ceiling is greater than the depth of the item. Once at the top of the stairs, make sure there is enough room on the landing for our delivery team to manoeuvre your item into your chosen room.
If you have any questions please give us a call or pop into one of our showrooms, we would be happy to help.
The final part of the Delcor experience is delivery. We understand the importance of and respect that is required when delivering to your home – that’s why we do it ourselves. All our deliveries and installations are carried out by our own trained delivery teams using our own vehicles.
We will call you 7 to 14 days prior to your delivery to discuss the exact dates. At that time, we can talk about an am or pm delivery. You can change your delivery slot at any time but this may affect when the next delivery slot will be available.
On the day we will give you a call one hour before your delivery is due. We will remove and packaging and ensure the room is left just as we found it. Please ensure that the room is ready and the space for your new piece of furniture is ready. Unfortunately, we cannot remove any old furniture due to health and safety.
