Wedding season is officially behind us and as you curl up with your new husband or wife, you may be thinking ‘what is our new home missing?’ Below you will find the 5 things every newlywed couple should have in their home.
A High-Quality Mattress
A quality nights sleep is of the utmost important — so don’t skimp when purchasing a new mattress. If you’ve recently moved in together this is a great opportunity to throw out your old mattresses and buy something together that you both like. Take the time to research all the options out there and pick a mattress that fits both of your needs. Mattresses may seem a bit pricey, and they can be but remember that you will be spending 6+ hours every single night in it for years to come.
A Good Set of Knives
High-quality knives are not only safer to use than dull worn out knives, but they also make cooking easier. You can find a good set of knives at most department stores, cooking stores, or online. Most even come with sharpeners so you won’t have to pay someone else to keep them from dulling.
A Nice Set of Dishes
You will inevitably have company as newlyweds, and when you do you won’t want to serve your guests on mismatched dishes you’ve been collecting since graduation. A nice set of dishes, that can withstand normal wear and tear and fit with a multitude of different occasions. White dishes are always a good choice as they can be casual for everyday use, or dressed up with napkins and placemats for a more sophisticated feel.
Now that you are homeowners or soon-to-be homeowners, you can no longer rely on your landlord or building maintenance to fix household problems. Having a decent tool kit, with all the essentials, will make your life that much easier when something inevitably breaks.
Now that the two of you are sharing a space it’s time to find art that appeals to both of your sensibilities. As great as that band poster from when you were in high school is, it may not be the best choice for over the sofa. Picking out art together can also be a fun way to express your newlywed character throughout your home.
