From being heavy and immovable once set in place to the one that is light in weight, furniture has come a long way in its life cycle.

2. Calculate it
Measure the rooms and figure out what kind of furniture might look good in a certain place. You can also take help of modern day software that help you create a virtual room of your dimensions and then you can add different furniture to it. It helps you make the choice easily. Though I am not asking you to be exact with the measurement, just have an idea about the size of the room and then decide about furniture.
3. Keep it in sync
What I mean here by the line is that decide the color of the furniture with respect to the color of your room. Try and match the colors in both or if not match it then at least keep it contrasting. The two should not have different colors or else it will make your furniture look out of place.
4. Plan ahead
Taking notes from the previous point I thought to add this tip. If you are just complete with the construction of house and only paint is left then first decide the furniture for your rooms and then plan the color of the room, this will help in create good mix and matches and help you choose good furniture.
