Function Over Fashion: 4 Key Areas Around The Home To Make Practical Calls On



When you’re shopping for accessories for your home or even elements of your decor, you can be tempted to focus on fashion and aesthetics. While in some cases, this can be a lot of fun, in others, you’ll benefit more from focusing on function. There are some are areas of the home that will always require a more practical touch. Whether it’s to make your life easier or your home safer, if you’re not sure which call to make, here are the four main areas to stick with practical purchases on.


The Pool


Although you might want your garden structures to look lovely, many of them will have a key functionality that needs caring for too. Take the pool. Your pool needs to stay clean for you to enjoy swimming in it and to save on cleaning time and costs. Without the proper equipment, you could be causing yourself more work in the long run. Pool covers and rollers can also save on heating your pool as they work to keep a lot of heat in. So although you might think your pool looks better without them, they’re a solid investment.


Dining Area


Of all the interior areas of your house, you could say your dining room is the most functional of them all. Even if you’ve created a beautiful room, you’re going to want to make sure it has practically at the core - especially when you have small children. Those fabric chairs may look gorgeous, but how will you feel when little sticky fingers get all over them? In your dining area, focus on wipeable surfaces and storage. That way, you can store away any practical items to ensure the room looks lovely, and keep it looking lovely without the risk of it being ruined with mess.


The Garage


It can be tempting to see your garage as an extension of your exterior aesthetic. In some ways it is, but if you focus only on looks, you could be missing out on a lot of safety. When it comes to your garage door, you should concentrate on a style that you can open easily and that will keep your home contents safe - especially if you often leave and enter your home using the garage door. You can often get doors that focus on design and function, but if you’re forced to choose, don’t let a pretty facade fool you into forgetting about safety.


Bedroom

When it comes to your bedroom, your body will thank you if you prioritize function above all else. You might find a bed that looks lovely, but it can feel like sleeping on nails. So, you’re going to want to make sure your mattress is up to scratch. It can be the same with color choices. You might want the room to look nice, but be careful of your paint color choice being too distracting. And, think about your room layout overall. You want to promote calm and serenity here to encourage sleep - not hinder it.
