There are fewer things more satisfying than being able to upgrade your home one furniture piece or appliance at a time. We bet you're one of the many who have been scrolling through online shops (don’t worry, we do that a lot, too) to plan your next purchase and to add-to-cart in the hopes that what you want get a price cut the next big sale.

So if you’re looking for options, we’ve collated a few that you may want to check out—because we’ve all been cocooning after all.

Entertainment: Devant 43” Condo TV

Recommended Videos

Whether you live in a condo or in a tiny home, a space-saving television set that doesn’t sacrifice your viewing experience is a good investment. Devant recently launched three new models, and they’re all at 43 inches. Devant product trainer Kristian Castro explains that 43 inches allows a four to 10 feet of distance from the screen to the viewer in a compact area.

If you’re on a budget, you can go for the Devant 43” Digital LED TV. If you’re into streaming, go for the Devant 43” Smart TV, and if you’re looking for best picture quality, upgrade to the Devant 43” Smart 4k TV.

Devant products are available online, and in leading appliance stores nationwide.

Cooling and ventilation: Samsung Windfree Air Conditioner with Air Purifier PM1.0


Yup, you read it right—there’s such a thing as an air condition that doubles as an air purifier, and since we’re still in the middle of a pandemic, that definitely sounds like a great idea. In this new offering, Samsung presents a cooling experience that cancels out harsh drafts through its WindFree technology that disperses air through microholes. Moreover, the unit’s filter also acts as an air purifier which captures particulates.

You can check out Samsung’s new air conditioners on their website.

Lighting: ilaw atbp.’s Prestige lamps


In case you didn’t know, lighting specialist ilaw atbp. recently opened their first Prestige branch in Bacoor, Cavite for their high-end and designer lighting pieces, so if you’re really serious about doing that makeover, we suggest dropping by (as long as you practice proper health protocols, of course).

If driving to their shop is not feasible, you can always check out ilaw atbp.’s website. We suggest taking a look at the Gabi Peretto collection if you’re in the market for designer pieces.

Prestige is open from Monday to Sunday, 9:00AM to 6:00PM. For inquiries, they can be reached at (+63)963-6219587 or via email: [email protected].

Kitchen: Tefal, Cuisinart, Oneida

If the kitchen has become your favorite place during the pandemic, then it just makes sense for you to invest in the best products that can make cooking and baking an even more satisfying experience.
