Furniture Basics that Every Home Should Have

Whether you’ve just moved in or simply want to revamp your home, we can help. While investing in small pieces of home décor can add some personality and individuality to a space, there are some furniture basics that we think every home should have. Whether these basics service a functional or decorative purpose, here our team will explain some of our most recommended furniture set-ups and how they can benefit your home.

A Comfortable & Functional Living Room Suite

This one probably comes as no surprise, but investing in a comfortable, high-quality, and size-appropriate living room suite is an absolute must to make a house feel like a home. When choosing your living room suite, it’s important to take budget, size, and comfort requirements into account. Whether you love traditional style furniture or would rather something colourful and modern, we can help. Shopping Mart offers a range of couches and armchairs in all styles and sizes, meaning you don’t have to compromise when it comes to choosing the perfect suite for your home. Before investing in a living room suite, make

sure to consider things such as space available, whether you want a leather or fabric suite, how many armchairs are required, what your budget is, and more. By taking some time to think about your unique requirements, you can make sure that you choose the perfect living room couch and armchairs to love for years to come.

Furniture that Doubles as Storage

One thing that most people can agree on is that you can never have too much storage. From extra blankets and towels to kids’ toys and everything in between, finding clever ways to store excess belongings is a god-send when it comes to keeping your home neat and tidy. One of the best ways to increase storage in any space is by investing in furniture that doubles as furniture. This can come in the form of under-bed storage, hidden cabinets, decorative chests, and built-in storage under tables. Here at Shopping Mart, we have a variety of bedroom and living room furniture for sale complete with hidden storage compartments to put that excess clutter out of sight.

A Mirror You Love

As well as serving a practical function and allowing you to check how you look each morning, investing in a mirror that you love and hanging it as a wall feature is a great way of giving the illusion of more space and light in a room. Whether you love a classic floor-length mirror or would prefer a contemporary round mirror, hanging a high-quality mirror can create space, light, and depth in almost any room, instantly enhancing its look and feel. We recommend a mirror mounted in either the hall or living room to transform your space in a way that’s easy, cost-effective, and maintenance-free.

Low-Maintenance Garden Furniture

If you’re lucky enough to have a garden or balcony, you’ll know how fantastic the space can be for entertaining guests as well as for relaxing. To make the most of your property’s outdoor space, we recommend investing in some stylish but low-maintenance garden furniture to suit your needs. From sturdy metal patio sets to folding chairs, chimineas, and barbeques, there are countless options when it comes to choosing garden furniture that instantly enhances the look and feel of your space. Here at Shopping Mart, we have options to suit all styles, tastes, and budgets, ensuring your garden is ready for use all year round.

These are some of the furniture basics we couldn’t live without- what are yours?
