the furniture you need when you buy a home

Furniture can be a very big investment when buying a home. What furniture do you really need to live comfortably in your new home? Are there some things that you can live without for a while until you are settled in and get what you really need? Working as a real estate agent for the past twenty years, I have helped a lot of families get settled into their new places. This blog will show you what you probably want to have when you first move into a house and what you can live without for a few months as you get settled in.

Three Reasons For Buying A Queen Sized Mattress


When shopping for a mattress, it can sometimes be difficult to choose the best size for your home and your specific needs. However, one size that is universally a great option is a queen sized mattress. Purchasing this size of mattress has several benefits. Here are three reasons for buying a mattress of this size. 

It Can Fit In Any Size Bedroom

One excellent reason to go with a queen sized mattress is the fact that it can fit into any bedroom in your home. The same can't be said of a king sized mattress because some rooms are simply made too small for them. A queen can fit comfortably, while still allowing you to place dresses and nights stands in the room as well. This allows for a completed bedroom look, which is what most people want for their bedrooms. 

Perfect Kids Sharing A Bed 

A lot of the time children don't like sleeping in a bed alone, especially if they are used to sleeping with their parents. However, when then are in their own room, most parents move their children into a toddler or twin size bed. Rather than doing this, you should consider moving your child into a queen sized bed and sharing with one of their siblings. The queen sized mattress will provide plenty of room for the two of them to lay on and you can make it safer by adding on a removable railing that stops them from falling off the edges. 

Great For Guest Bedrooms 

If you have one or more guest bedrooms in your home, you want to make sure that you have a good bed for your guests to sleep in when they come and visit you. Since most motels and hotels have rooms with queen sized beds in them, you know that this is a good size. You can choose between a range of firm to soft queen sized mattresses, so as to ensure that you get the mattress you feel is the most comfortable. This in turn will likely create happy guests because they will stay on this comfortable mattress when they stay with you.

Purchasing a queen sized mattress for your home is an excellent option to choose because it can easily fit into the bedrooms in your home, it is the perfect size for siblings to share, and it is an excellent size for guests bedrooms because it is the traditional hotel size.
