4 Furniture Pieces That Are Worth The Splurge

For all new homeowners, the completion of home renovations signals the perfect time to start furnishing your new home. With the seemingly never-ending list of furniture pieces and items to purchase for your new home, it can be extremely stressful, particularly when working on a tight budget.

After purchasing and renovating your new home, you might find that you aren’t left with a huge budget for furniture and decorations. However, this process doesn’t have to break the bank (completely, at least)! The key is to be mindful of what items are worth the investment and what items are worth saving some money on. To simplify this process for you, we've compiled a list of 4 furniture pieces that are certainly worth the splurge (and investment)!

1. Sofa

The living room is often described as the heart of the home, and sofas are an integral part of it. For many families, the sofa is one of the most important pieces of furniture in their homes. From watching movies to family discussions to serving as a prop for family photos, sofas are definitely a piece of furniture that is used extremely often in every home. Additionally, as increasingly more people have been working from home these days, the sofa also becomes a potential working space and makeshift home office. 

It thus makes sense to spend some extra dollars on your sofa, to get a good quality piece that will last for a long time. We'd recommend choosing classic styles and colours that will never go out of style, and will blend well even if you were to change up the design of your space.

2. Dining table and chairs

Apart from your living room, the dining room is another area of your house that you will probably spend a significant portion of time in. Whether you're eating your daily meals or entertaining guests or working, your dining table and chairs are definitely some of the most-used pieces of furniture in your home. 

With how often you're going to be using your dining table and chairs, it's definitely worth investing and splurging on good quality pieces which will last for years, and pieces that will accompany you even as you embark on new chapters and adventures in life. Similar to sofas, consider classic styles and colours that will never go out of trend.

As humans, we spend approximately a third of our lives (8 out of 24 hours a day) on our beds, and more specifically, our mattresses, so they're definitely items that you shouldn't scrimp on. 

Apart from allowing you to get a good night's rest every single night, a good quality mattress should also help to improve your posture and should also be strong enough to last for at least 5 to 10 years. It might take some time to find the perfect mattress, but it's definitely worth both the time and financial investment

Regardless of whether you're working or studying from home, a good office chair is definitely something that's worth the splurge for every home office. Dining chairs or plastic foldable chairs may be great temporary solutions but they simply won't make the cut for more permanent and long-term solutions. If you’ve sat on them for hours at a time, you probably would have experienced some form of backaches or a stiffened neck. Not only can this discomfort result in back issues, it could also compromise your work performance, lowering your productivity. 

Comfort is key when setting up your home office. Office chairs with ample back support will be sure to support you through your long working hours, allowing you to achieve peak productivity and productivity.
