New Home Furniture Tips: From Beds with Storage to Colour Schemes

beds with storage

When moving into a new home, you want it to be as comfortable and homely as possible. You want your home to reflect your personality and make a statement about you. Choosing your furniture is a vital part of this process. From beds with storage to outdoor garden furniture, make the most of your new space and ensure each room is finished to your exact taste.




Moving house can be an expensive time but it’s important to invest in a few essential items. Although it can be tempting to opt for the cheaper items, think about the longevity of the item and the uses you will gain from it.  Adding small items of furniture to your house is important but this will be a gradual process.  Instead, prioritise. Start out with a few essentials, such as a bed, a couch, and a dining table and chairs.


Colour Scheme


Think about the colours you choose, as well as the quality. You may like an orange settee now but will it have the same appeal in a few years' time? It is best to go for light, neutral colours, which will make your home look more spacious and will not clash with other items you buy later. Add colour with accessories as it is far easier to buy a few new cushions if your tastes change rather than a whole new sofa.


Beds With Storage


Every person spends around one third of their life in bed and so choosing a supportive mattress and a quality base is vital. This is another item which should last for years and so consider the future before making your choice. Will you still want a single bed in a few years' time or will that super king be practical if you ever choose to downsize? Also, think practicality. Investing in beds with storage will save you money and space elsewhere in regards to other forms or storage units.


Dining and Outdoors


When choosing all of your furniture, it is essential to consider your lifestyle. If you have lots of visitors, a two-seater sofa and a bistro table and chairs will not be practical, but it might be worth investing in an elegant dining table set and a Rattan outdoor garden furniture set. While you probably don't need a gigantic corner sofa if you spend a lot of time at home alone.


You also need to consider the space you have available. A huge sofa may look comfortable but it will soon become annoying if you have to climb over the arm to shut your living room door. Measure your rooms before you buy anything. This will help you choose the right pieces and give you a good idea of what will look best where.
