Home Essentials: Blow The Budget

Thursday, April 24, 2014

Ask any woman what they include as necessities in the home and they will have to think long and hard. No one wants to be accused of being indulgent, but do we need everything that is in our home? De-cluttering one of the best things you can do. Keeping a beautiful home is much more than simply keeping it clean. A good de-cluttering at regular intervals throughout the year keeps our homes looking fresh and modern.

While we may have many cheap bits and bobs lying around the home, we need to consider what our essentials are. What is worth blowing the budget for and what pieces are worth picking up at a cheaper rate. This guide should help you look at the key home essentials that are worth investing in:

Bath Towels:

Fluffy towels are the mainstay of any home and are certainly worth blowing the budget for. Cheap, scratchy towels should be a thing of the past. By investing in a good, quality bath towel you eliminate the need to keep replacing them. After all, the last thing any home maker wants to do is to keep trading worn items. Go for luxury and quality. Egyptian cotton is considered king and will need minimal replacing.

Knife Set:

A quality knife set will last you years. Even if you are not quite a culinary goddess, it is worth investing in knives. Cheaper sets are prone to breaking and losing their edge quickly. Sharpening cheap knives is arduous too. There is no substitute for quality, when it comes to knife sets, so buy the best you can afford to ensure that you will not have to replace them for many years to come.


Being in the market for a new mattress is not without its pitfalls. The problem is, is that there are so many to choose from, the task of buying a new mattress is not an enviable one. Think about the main options and what is suited for your comfort. Never ‘go cheap’ with a mattress. A quality mattress will last you for 20 years as well as having obvious health benefits, such as undisturbed sleep and minimal back problems. Investing in a decent mattress is one the best things you can do for your own health and one of the soundest home essential investments you can make.


If you love relaxing in your front room, with your feet up with a glass of wine, then you need to consider investing in an excellent sofa. While the sofa is not a cheap purchase, it is certainly an expense that should be considered wisely. Sofas are costly and purchasing a slightly cheaper one can be an expensive waste of time and cash. Consider your options and splash out a little more for a sofa. After all, as well as comfort being a factor in your sofa shopping, it needs to look stylish too. The sofa is often the focal point of the living room, so ensure that you have invested wisely in classic designs with comfort being top priority.
