Must-have purchases for your new home

Moving up and moving out is a big deal, so when you find a place that feels right, you’ll want to bring in some key creature comforts with you to make it feel like home. 

Starting your new rental or share house, you’ll need to learn how to optimise your space. This is when you’ll quickly learn the difference between a need and a want. For example, you may want a king-size bed and walk-in wardrobe, but in reality, you need a queen-size bed with built-in storage. 

Don’t let the size of your new home scare you. With these must-have purchases for new home, you can turn any place into a relaxing, stylish and welcoming home.

Kirribilli Bed Base
Kirribilli Bed Base

The best bed in Australia

Let’s not lie to ourselves, we spend a lot of time sleeping, lounging, or working from bed. With all this bed time,  it’s worth investing in a bed you can depend on for restful sleep and whatever—*ahem*—extracurricular activities you might have visitors for. 

Start at the base-ics and get your bed base sorted. The Kirribilli Bed Base respectfully says I have my sh*t together. Made for compact living, this wooden bed frame has no middle leg so you can use the whole underneath space as storage. Plus the simple, tool-free assembly and intuitive design sees you constructing the the bed in minutes (on your ones, you independent go-getter; you)… so you won’t need to borrow a hammer from home. This is called independence, legend. 

The Award-Winning Koala Mattress is one of the best mattresses in Australia, considered a must-have purchase for new home

Australia’s number one Mattress range 

Now for the mattress. For price and value, you can’t go past our award-winning original Koala Mattress. The double-sided Kloudcell™ comfort layer provides premium comfort and breathability and lets you choose from medium-firm and firm. As an added bonus, this Kloudcell™ also means you’ll have a Zero Disturbance sleep, no matter who is sleeping next to you. 

The Getaway Sofa in Choppy Waves is among the must have features in a new home
The Getaway Sofa in Choppy Waves

A sofa to sink into 

Doesn’t matter if you’re in a spacious two-bedroom or a snug studio, you’re going to need a living room to put your feet up after a long day of being an adult. Living room sofas can fill a lot of space, so take the time to consider the right configuration for your room first, then think about adding a coffee table or ottoman. 

Whatever room you have to work with, the Getaway Sofa is a gorgeous contortionist, and perhaps the best modular sofa in Australia. Comfort comes in all shapes, sizes, and configurations so it’ll fit the space you need it to. Plus, the generously-sized timber storage drawers give you the extra space you need without taking up extra square-footage, and helping you to quickly shove the mess in when your parents (or a date) comes round.
