Awesome Ottoman

Whether used for extra seating, a footrest, or as a coffee table when topped with a tray, an ottoman is a smart and stylish addition to a room. Look for one with a removable top to add a bit of additional storage.

Gorgeous Greenery

Besides bringing a bit of nature indoors, houseplants and trees work to improve your home's air quality, too. Here, a gorgeous fiddle-leaf fig tree occupies an empty corner, providing a pop of color and a lush look to the room.

Chic Console Table

Whether you have a large entryway or just a small nook, a console table placed near the door is a great drop-off spot for keys, mail, loose change, and more. Hooks above take care of bags and jackets, while baskets below are a great place to stash shoes, slippers, and pet supplies.

Glam Bedroom Furniture

Having a bedroom space that you enjoy is essential to relaxation and will help you get a better night's sleep. Purchasing a well-built and stylish bed, nightstands and dresser will be an investment you won't regret.

Chic Coffee Table

A coffee table can serve as a place to house many different items, so selecting the right piece for your new home is an important task. Be sure to find one that will accompany all of your needs and is cohesive with your existing living room furnishings.

Stylish Sectional

A great investment for your new home is a quality sectional, because, chances are, you'll be spending a lot of time on this piece of furniture. Selecting a stylish and comfortable sectional that fits all your needs, may take time, but will be worth the wait and expense in the long run.

Personal Artwork

Bringing your own personality into your space is essential to making your house feel like a home. Try selecting artwork that is personal to you, that way when you pass by you'll remember good memories and have stories to tell guests.

Dining Room Table

A beautiful and durable dining room table is a must-have for your new home. Choosing a table that fits your new dining area is essential, so be sure to measure and account for dining room chairs.

Happy-Making Hardware

Make the most of kitchen cabinets and drawers with chic hardware that adds personality and brings the room together. Here, bright blue cabinetry gets sleek handles and half-moon pulls to complete this chef's kitchen.

Versatile Bar Cart

A statement piece on its own, this vintage bar cart is the perfect place to store liquor, glassware, and other beverage makings. Look for one that suits your design style and set up your own mobile bar station.

Lighting You Love

No matter what room it's in, a statement-making light fixture adds not only light, but depth and design. In this all black-and-white bedroom, a midcentury-inspired fixture brings an artistic element and completes the look of the room.

Terrific Throws

Easy to change up for a new season or a fresh look, decorative pillows and throw blankets are fabulous finishing touches to a room, layering in color, coziness, and an inviting feel. Add in a beautiful basket to hold the items when not in use on the bed, couch, or chair, like this throw seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.

Room-Defining Rug

Use an area rug to define a space and layer in texture and interest. In this neutral dining room, a bright, patterned rug adds a punch of color and movement.

Stylish Curtains

Curtains have the ability to transform the look of a room, adding elegance and privacy to your space. Don't forget to measure before you buy.

Marvelous Mirror

No home is complete without mirrors. Choose a decorative style, like the one shown here, to add a sculptural element to your space while reflecting the room's light, making it seem larger and brighter.
