Your Most Important Furniture Decisions

Furnishing your home can be fun and exciting. However, it can also be expensive and confusing. There are so many choices! You want to choose pieces that are stylish now and that you will love for years to come. The best approach is to select the key functional pieces first; they can serve as inspiration for the rest of the space.


Your sofa is the first thing you notice when you walk in the living room — perhaps in the whole place — so its importance is hard to overstate. It needs to look fabulous. The sofa is also where you will likely spend countless waking hours at home, so it needs to be comfortable. If you do not want to devote every evening and weekend visiting furniture stores, check out an online sofa retailer such as Joybird. The firm entered the scene as an industry disrupter, making custom couches affordable and sustainable. If you can wait about six weeks for your sofa, check out a few Joybird reviews to see if this is an option for you. It may seem odd to purchase a couch you have not sat on, but the company lets you try it out for a year in your own living room, risk-free.


Sleep is crucial to your health and well-being, and one key to getting a good night’s sleep is having a really great bed. Of course, it needs to be the proper size for the room, or you will not have enough space to maneuver around it. The style matters as well. For example, a footboard may look good, but many taller people find it impossible to get comfortable in a bed with a footboard. The most important aspect of the bed may be the mattress. You need one that is firm enough for support but soft enough for comfort. If you share a bed, you may need to find one with two distinct zones.

Storage Spaces

tidy home is a healthy home, and the key to keeping rooms tidy is having plenty of storage within easy reach. In bedrooms, this is often the closet; add a customizable organizer to maximize the space. You can sneak in a little extra storage with a captain’s bed, also called a platform bed, which has drawers under the mattress.  However, other living areas may need more creative solutions. You may choose a sleek entertainment center or media unit complete with cabinets and shelves. If your style is more traditional or rustic, you may prefer an armoire or wardrobe. Whatever you choose, it should be functional, versatile, and attractive.
