Grab the opportunity to go furniture shopping
Many homeowners choose to renovate, redecorate, and go with a new color scheme to welcome the New Year. If you're still contemplating whether you'll try a new palette or start a renovation project, we suggest that you consider investing in new furniture pieces first. Visit different stores and look for quality furniture that can last for a long time. Here are some of the pieces that you should look for—trust us, they are worth the splurge:
You’ll be surprised to know how proper lighting can change the mood and feel of a room. This year, make sure you do the switch to LED lights. These are more environmentally-friendly and can help save energy too.
You can also create an impact with the right set of fixtures! Consider adding a mini chandelier in the living or dining area. A statement lamp can be a conversation piece during reunions too.
Just like you, we'd also love to come home to a comfy bed with clean sheets. Reward yourself with a new set and we're sure that you're in for a relaxing slumber after a long day. When buying sheets, interior designer Peaches de Guzman-Grey suggests that you purchase those made from cotton as these are easy to clean and very comfy. If you're willing to spend just a bit more, you can never go wrong with Pima or Egyptian cotton.
Shelves help you keep things in place and display your favorite collections. You can opt for freestanding pieces—for your books and other belongings—or open shelves that you can use when displaying decor and plants.
For those who live in a small space, investing in a sofa bed is a must as you can use it at night while guests can maximize it in the morning. Consider getting one in a neutral shade and liven it up with throws and colorful pillows.
BONUS PIECE: Consider investing in art. Check out some of the works by young artists. You can use it to liven up a plain wall and it can serve as a focal point in any area too.
