Do you ever wonder how long a list one creates before moving in their first home? Let’s just say it’s pretty much made up of things you either knew you needed or things you didn’t even know existed (like those towel hooks you often ignore and mindlessly hang your towels on – yeah, they don’t come with the house).
While it’s important to take note of everything you will probably need from the pot holder you just wouldn’t live without to the paper towels you think you’ll never find a good enough use for, you should learn how to prioritize first.
Yes, you need furry carpets to make the home yours, and yes, that potted plant is pretty cute – but let’s start with the big, chunky boys first. I’m talking about your dining ware, and sofa, and hello, your bed – all that good stuff.
I’m not sure if it’s just me, but I often always see people’s dens first before anything else. Invest in durable pieces that will stand the test of time. Don’t sacrifice this for style, as you can find a ton of classic looking ones that will go well with any theme you may have in mind for the rest of your house.
I’m not gonna lie, it’s going to cost you quite a bit. It does pay off in the long run, though, because if you purchase quality furniture now, you’ll never need to replace them time and again.

If you love cooking and eating as much as you love lounging, then I don’t see why you can’t spend just as much – if not more – for your kitchen and dining ware.
Some equipment such as ovens and cookers last forever if well taken care of – surely, that’s a bang for the buck!

Bed and Bath
This is just as important as any other part of your house. Not every one of your visitors get to see this personal space, mainly because it’s mostly just for you, but that doesn’t mean you can’t glam it up!
This is what you come home to after every long, rough day – so it has to reflect you and make you feel comfortable in your own skin, giving off that relaxed vibe you could use to recharge for the days ahead.
