Many new homeowners find themselves taken aback by how much space it brings. Though a new home might not always seem that much bigger than an apartment or condo, a little extra space can go a long way. 

Furnishing a new home can feel like an undertaking, which is why we wanted to cover some of the core essentials. In this guide, we will break down some of the more basic home items that every homeowner should invest in.


The kitchen is a prominent space within any home. Getting essential kitchen items can improve your experience within the kitchen and can make it feel more complete. With a combination of tools and furniture, you can make your dream kitchen in no time.

Dining Table and Chairs

Kitchens are not just made for making food. Most of them are also made for serving food. If you are looking to make your kitchen feel more complete, getting a dining set can be a great way to do it. This will give you a nice place to pass time and connect with those around you. Fortunately, tables and chairs are fairly easy to find. In fact, you can get them for a nice low price by investing in used furniture.

House Plants

House plants can bring so much to a kitchen and they can be practical too. Bring a little extra life to your kitchen with some fun plants. If you are really up to the challenge, consider growing your own indoor vegetables or fruits that you can enjoy for yourself. 

Coffee Pots

A good coffee pot can add a fun design flair to your counter space and is a practical addition to any home. Depending on the kind you get, you can gain the benefits of many different devices in one, so look for something that suits your needs.


A blender is an incredibly versatile tool that every homeowner should have. These devices can be used to make milkshakes, margaritas, chop vegetables, and so much more. They can come in quite handy for daily use.

Toaster Ovens

Toaster ovens are small and versatile ovens that can handle a ton of daily tasks. They are great for making toast, french fries, reheating sandwiches, and so much more. With a toaster oven, you can handle some of those smaller tasks without dirtying the oven.

Living Room

The living room is where so many of us spend our free time, which is why it is important to have the right decorations and furniture. Remember to make your living room comfortable so you always feel at home on your lazy days. 


A good couch can bring so much comfort to a room. Choose a couch that suits your style and offers enough seating space for you and any guests. Couches can be purchased for a lower price if you buy them used, but you should always check them out first. 


In most homes, the living room has a tv and accompanying devices to pass the time. You might consider mountain a flatscreen on the wall or find a nice tv to sit on top of your entertainment center. A tv can be purchased for a great discount.

Decor Items

Every living room needs decorations to feel comfortable. Consider getting paintings or decor items for the wall, or maybe invest in a nice area rug. These little changes can make a room yours!

An Entertainment Center

Entertainment centers are invaluable decoration tools. They can hide all of your cords and consoles so you always have a neat presentation. These can be purchased for very cheap prices when you get them second-hand.

A Coffee Table

Coffee tables are great because they support the people in the room. Give everyone a place to set their drinks and snacks while they enjoy some time spent relaxing. Coffee tables are another furniture item that is great to buy used.


Everyone needs a good bedroom set up to sleep easy at night. With the right furniture, you can make your bedroom a place for relaxing and restoration. Remember to keep it simple and limit distractions!

Mattress and Box Spring

Mattresses and box springs are two items that go hand-in-hand and are very important. These items should always be bought brand new to avoid taking on any contaminants, but they can easily be financed through most sellers.

A Bed Frame

A good bed frame will support your bed and give you a way to get off the ground. Bed frames can be purchased second-hand and should be made from good materials if possible. This furniture item can be a great investment with time.


Dressers are an important part of bedroom design. Not only do they look nice, but they are also great for keeping an area clean and organized. With a good dress, storing your personal items has never been easier. Find one that offers enough space and fits your available space!


Nightstands are such a helpful and stylish addition to any bedroom. They give you a place to keep necessary items like books or chapstick and can also give you a place to keep a glass of water at night. As a bonus, they can be purchased alongside other items to keep a consistent design and fill up empty space.

A Simple Desk

Keeping a simple writing desk in the bedroom is an old practice that is still relevant. Sometimes you just need a place to sit and think in your bedroom. A writing desk can offer this by allowing you to sit down and enjoy the comfort of your room even if you aren’t ready for bed.

Final Thoughts

A home is what you make of it and there is no right or wrong way to do it. However, these essentials can help you to enjoy that “complete” home look that you have been looking for. Choose items that you love and you will be happy!
