Julius Schonhuitt, best known as “Mr. Shane”, says, “Customer’s needs must be taken into consideration. Some want to make a change in their present décor, others are just starting out.” he illustrated.
“Fitting needs to a budget as well as to the precise room or rooms is important. The size, layout and use of the room must be considered. For example, will there be a lot of activity in one given room? Will children be using it? Will a TV set be present? Will the use necessitate extra sleeping facilities? Will food be served?”
“The next consideration is the types and styles of furniture; the wood finishes, colors, fabrics, designs; what one most desires.”
After getting these answers, the next step is to fit it into the size and layout of the room. Too much furniture or furniture improperly placed can be harmful to the room’s use and beauty. Accessories are vital in giving a room, ‘the complete look’. Proper lamps, correct size pictures, plaques or statuette is as important as selection of the larger items.
