Color isn’t always the first thing that comes to mind when you think about home furnishings. Although most people recognize that color does play a role in the appeal and even the overall beauty of furniture, it’s usually the design, shape, and even the features that are given the most attention. Particularly when it comes to wooden Amish furniture, it’s easy to lean towards traditional stains.
You can make more of a statement with your furniture when you choose a colored finish. Beautiful Amish furniture can be finished in epoxy of any hue, particularly when working with a lighter wood like white oak. Solid paint colors can also be chosen for custom Amish furniture online, providing you with bold, fashionable, and damage-resistant furniture.
If you’re thinking about buying new furniture for your home this winter, or if you’re simply starting to research your options for the new year, then exploring your color choices will be an essential part of the process.
Paint and Epoxy Finishes for Amish Furniture
Although most natural timber Amish furniture is sold with traditional varnish and resin finishes, you could also choose to have your furniture coated with solid paint. Much like resin and varnish, high-quality paint can protect your furniture to ensure that it lasts for generations. Paint can be refinished if it wears over time, and because we use high-quality Sherwin Williams paints, you will enjoy durability and showroom-quality looks for many years to come. Oil-based paints for use on wooden furniture are available in both gloss and satin.
Pastel colors have been seen at a number of high-profile furniture and interior design conventions this year. People are becoming more adventurous with their color choices, and various hues of blue and green have been particularly popular. Some publications have referred to the current trend as the ‘Ice Cream Color’ trend. Think seafoam green, faded lime, sky blue, and baby blue. Pastel colors are more neutral than the vibrant colors that have trended over the past few years.
The advantage of using pastel colors on painted Amish furniture is that they will clash less with your other furniture pieces. Because pastels are cool and subdued, they’re far more likely to work with traditional and transitional design, particularly if you use a single pastel piece of furniture as a visual feature in a room. Of course, pastels also work great in modern homes, particularly those that have predominantly neutral interior design of white, mushroom, beige, grey, and brown. Pastel blues and greens will add a splash of color and personality, which could completely change the way that you look at your interior spaces.
EcoPoxy resin finishes can also be colored to give your furniture a unique look and lasting appeal. The resins we use can be pigmented to create any color that you want to work with. We can even create specialist finishes for the truly adventurous. Colored glitter and metallic finishes can be used for one of a kind furniture. Luxury jewelry boxes, a games table for your den or man cave, or even epoxy coated wooden countertops can be finished to bring life and color into any room.
While pastels are definitely going to be popular over the next year, you don’t have to limit yourself to the current trend. With the freedom to fully customize your Amish furniture, you can choose anything that resonates with your personality and your overall interior design.
