There’s nothing wrong with having a few precious antiques from cherished relatives around the house. In fact, it’s part of what makes a house a home! No one understands this like Spruce Personalized Décor.

But there comes a time in every homeowner’s life when he or she wants to see their own personal style reflected in their surroundings. And sometimes, that means making a furniture overhaul – going “out with the old” and “in with the new!” Take a look below at how this can benefit your home and lifestyle.

Your furnishings reflect your unique style

You’re your own person. Not your mother, not your aunt and not your grandmother, no matter how much you love and honor them. Sometimes, it can be difficult and overwhelming to have those constant reminders of them in your home when all you want to be is, well, you. And there’s nothing wrong with that!

They’ll last longer

Antiques are often well-made, yes, but they wear out. They can also take a lot of upkeep and care to keep them looking their best. Newer furnishings are made to keep up with today’s lifestyles (teens, pets, et cetera) and still seem like they just came off the delivery truck. They’ll last longer than antiques, giving you the choice to hand them down to your own children … or not.

They’ll work better with the rest of your décor

Furnishings that you’ve inherited can be beautiful – in their own time and place. But sometimes that Chippendale chair doesn’t mix with the mid-century modern vibe you have going. Or that Victorian fainting couch is ruining the industrial feel you’re striving for. When you purchase new furnishings, you’re guaranteed an overall look that fully reflects every nuance of your personality, no matter where in your home you look.
