What Your Furniture Says About Your Personality

What Your Furniture Says About Your Personality

The way you decorate your home can say a lot about your personality and interests, and that includes your furniture. Look at how you have arranged your furnishings and the overall styles you prefer, then check out our list to see what those choices say about you. Keep in mind that this is meant to be fun, so don’t worry if the description doesn’t fully apply to you.

Plenty of Chairs and Sofas

If you have more seating areas than you do people living in your home, you probably enjoy entertaining. In decorating the rest of your home, look for pieces that are fun and interesting. This way, your guests will have plenty of items to spark conversations.

An Open Layout

While some people like to use furniture to create cozy areas throughout their homes, others prefer to keep the space as open as possible, keeping the furnishings around the edges of the rooms. If you fall into the latter category, there is a good chance that you have kids or intend to in the future. Families often favor open layouts, as they provide more room for kids to play safely. As you shop for furnishings and decorative items, look for things that are soft or don’t have sharp edges to minimize the risk of injury to little heads and bodies.

Victorian Styles

The Victorian design style is elegant and ornate, so you likely consider yourself to be pretty sophisticated. Look for traditional decor with gold finishes to complement the Victorian pieces you already have in your collection. Dusty greens, rich reds and soft creams go well together and are often found in Victorian-style furnishings.

Bright Colors

Many people avoid bright colors in their homes in favor of neutral shades, but if you have embraced vivid hues in your home, you are likely energetic and spontaneous, embracing the latest trends. You probably enjoy traveling as well, so bring home souvenirs from your adventures to decorate your house. This way, your decor will not just look great, but also help you remember all of the great times you have had in the past.

Similar Styles Throughout the House

If you notice that many of your furnishings feature similar styles and shapes, you are probably a pretty dependable person who thrives on a long-term commitment. Because of this, you can get away with splurging on expensive furniture, as it is likely you’ll keep it forever. Don’t forget to break out of your comfort zone from time to time so that you can add a bit more visual interest.
