Choosing classic furniture rather than following trends will result in choices that last for a longer period.

Homeowners who look for classic furnishings, rather than the latest trend, will likely be happier with their choices over a longer period of time.

While there's more selection than ever before in the types of finishes and styles available for an affordable price, choosing furnishings of long-lasting quality and appeal is what gives a home a look that truly reflects what they treasure, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

The same approach works when home decorators are looking for the right window treatments. Buying custom blinds online gives consumers a broad range of window coverings that can suit any décor or color selection.

When consumers are shopping for home décor items, the newspaper recommends they ask themselves whether they are choosing their furnishings based on their personal preferences or because it reminds them of something they saw in someone else's home.

Shopping flea markets and vintage stores provides home decorators with a selection of accessories that can be given a second life. Often a simple makeover such as a paint job can turn a piece of furniture or decorative accent into a one-of-a-kind addition to a room.
