Your home may be your favorite place on Earth, but what makes it special? We all know that home is where the heart is, but coming home to cozy and welcoming rooms certainly helps! What does a room do?
Yes, you guessed it right! They are your furniture.
5 pieces that your home should not miss
# 1. Sofa bed
Whether you call it a sofa or a sofa (theme for another day), this piece of furniture belongs in every home. It can be a futon, a sectional, leather, microfiber, etc … whatever suits your personal style. When I was younger, my sofa represented my happy place at home. I watched TV, read, talked on the phone (yes, before texting and social media, I spent hours on the phone) … As an adult, it’s where I snuggle with my husband, I sleep with my babies (not really babies since they are 3.5 year old twins), and just relax at the end of a long day. What does a sofa / couch do for you? What do you like the most about your sofa?
# 2. Table
With the boards, we could go in many ways. There are kitchen tables, dining tables, coffee tables … Some have all of the above, others just one. My kitchen table was never sitting when I was younger, but as an adult we have our family dinners on the table, as well as doing work while the little ones play in the next room. Whether you’re entertaining, working, or just filling a room, a table is essential for any home.
# 3. Comfortable chair
Apart from the sofa, it is a great idea to have a comfortable chair in your home. Who doesn’t love cuddling up with their favorite book in a cute oversized chair covered in their favorite blanket, or watching the game with their feet up in a pretty leather recliner, or a new mom rocking her baby for sleep? In opinion, a chair complements a room and makes it feel like home.
# 4. Bed
Beds … Almost everyone needs one, so this part is pretty self explanatory. A bed is not just a bed, it is the place where your body recovers after a long day of being awake. Every time you lie in bed, whether it is large or small, firm or soft, comfortable or regular, resting your body while in bed is imperative to your ability to function properly.
# 5. Book shelf
A great piece of furniture, and not necessarily just for books! I love to read, but I don’t have many books to fill my bookshelf. As I still need a place for my books and some other items, I bought 2 ladder book shelves. They look fantastic on the sides of the TV unit, filled with books, photos, and a few tickets that I’ve bought along the way. The room was instantly transformed when I bought those pieces.
Wrapping it up
The beauty of furniture is the limitless options you have. Everyone has different tastes, different lifestyles, different ways of using their spaces. One thing you can count on: you can create magical rooms with these items.
