When you move into a new home, you are starting from scratch. Even if you move from one house to another, you probably want some new furniture from your new space. You may not want to bring the old furniture with you, for many reasons. Sometimes, you just need to start fresh. There are some foundational pieces that every home should have to start. Perhaps you cannot afford to furnish your home all at once, so you need to be particular in the choices you make. This might include a piano, as there were 20,870 pianos sold in the U.S. in 2020. This does not mean you need to have one in your home, but it’s a great option. Consider some of these other furniture pieces for your home.
A Comfortable Sofa
Besides the fact that you need somewhere to sit in your new home, a sofa gives you so much more. It is the center and the heart of your living room. It is a place for you to lounge, snuggle, sit, and sleep. If you are a parent, you may play, nap, and read to your children on your sofa. You do not want to save money on the cost of your sofa. You want this to be a piece of furniture that can hold up to whatever you want to dish out. You also want it to last you for a long time. As you consider your sofa options, like about one that suits your style and life. You want to think about the style, comfort, fabric, and durability. Another aspect to consider is how long before you can have it delivered. Most of us do not consider the delivery date, but you may be without a place to sit until the sofa is delivered. Manufacturing downtime has an average cost of $260,000 per hour, as well as delays for your items.
Dining Table and Chairs
You will need a place to sit and eat. A dining place is a critical need for your home. It may be a formal dining table with matching chairs, or it could be a small breakfast table in the kitchen. Regardless of what you choose, you want it to be comfortable and inviting. It should also be sturdy and strong. You could consider purchasing a table that has a removable leaf allowing you to make it larger or smaller as you need. As a parent, you may need to add in the leaf when you invite your children’s friends over.
An Inviting Bed
Your mattress can make or break the kind of sleep you get. When you have a quality mattress, you can get a restful and relaxing sleep. A comfortable mattress is a key piece of furniture for your new home. No matter if you want a spring coil mattress or memory foam, make sure you like the way it feels to sleep on it. Consider who may be in bed with you. If you are a parent, most likely, some or all of your children may be in bed with you at night.
Consider Your Floors
You want to ensure that your home has adequate floor protection. According to the National Floor Safety Institute, the leading cause of workers’ compensation claims is slips and falls. People aged 55 years and older are also the number one reporters of occupational injury. You can have an adequate floor covering to prevent these types of accidents.
You want your new home to be perfect as quickly as possible. However, it may take time until you can get everything where you want it. It would be best if you considered starting with these items and adding on from there.
