Whether you have just moved into a new rental property and now need to think about what furnishings you’ll need, or you are building a new home or renovating, chances are you are wondering where you should try to save money and where you should invest. Here is a list of the 6 essential household items definitely worth the investment. They will have a significant impact on your lifestyle and home comfort whether you are aware of it or not.
A Good Quality Bed
Your home is where you spend the majority of your time sleeping, so it only makes sense that you should ensure your bed is comfortable and allows you a decent rest. Your choice of bed will affect your posture, your body’s aches and pains, and ultimately your entire well being. The quality of your sleep impacts all aspects of your life: your productivity at work, your mood, your ability to socialize, your energy levels, so it is not an area where you can afford to forgo the investment.
Decently sized fridges with a considerable amount of freezer space are a household essential, and a good one will last you for years. Looking into energy saving labels will help you save money, and having the extra space to store food will mean you eat out less and save more. You can freeze the leftovers and prepare many meals in advance without worrying about a lack of storage space.
A Decent Shower
Shower pressure and plenty of hot water will make that “after a long day hot shower” all the more relaxing, or that “early morning wake-up shower!” all the more invigorating. And if you are a woman with long hair, you will really appreciate the time you save when it comes to washing your hair in the mornings.
Who has the time anymore to wash dishes by hand? Not only will your skin benefit from being free from drying water or gloves, you will save time as well and can be confident your dishes are properly clean. The time you used to waste doing this chore can be put to good use elsewhere – more time to write that novel, more time to do your assignment, or more time to entertain at your dinner party! There’s nothing more awkward than dirty dishes lying around or trying to discreetly clean them while entertaining at the same time.
Heating and Air-conditioning
Depending on where you live, this can be a huge factor as to whether your home life is happy or sad. Being cold or too hot will affect your mood and can negatively impact your close relationships with those you live with. Making sure you have good insulation and ventilation will also help if you have any problems with mould in the house, keeping you healthy and well!
This household essential will save you time and money because you can freeze meals and heat them up the next day in an instant. We all have those days when the last thing we feel like doing is cooking in any shape or form. Placing your microwave somewhere up high in the kitchen is a good idea so as to minimize the slim but potentially hazardous effects of microwaves.
