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.

3 Things To Do With A China Cabinet


One of the trends in interior decor right now is storage cabinets. Whether you buy an antique French Louis XV Vitrine cabinet or you buy one that's brand new from your favorite designer, you may not know that there are several things that you can do with your cabinet. But what exactly? This article will take a closer look at three options. Ready to learn some more? If so, then read on. 

Dining Room Display

The most obvious thing for you to do with one of these cabinets is to use it in your dining room. Traditionally, these cabinets were used to house things like really expensive china. However, nowadays, people don't collect china the way that they used to. Instead, consider making a display in your cabinet of things like pretty vases, some cookbooks, or some fun decorative objects that you just bought at a home goods store. 

A Pretty Place to Put Your Books

These cabinets also make great bookcases. Plus, if they have a glass door on them, they will make for really beautiful displays to show off your favorite books. By creating a more inviting space for your books, hopefully, they will be read more and won't collect so much dust. If you have little kids in your home or kids in general, consider putting books that are meant for their age group at their eye level; that way you can gently encourage them to pick up a book and read it. 

Toy Shelf

Your kids' toys aren't exactly pretty to look at. If you are sick of having your kids' toys strewn about your living room, then it may be time to come up with a better (and prettier) solution to display them and store them. Consider placing baskets inside of a big cabinet so that they can put all of their toys in there. Just make sure that every basket is organized. For instance, dolls could go in one basket and cars could go in another. By giving everything a place of its own inside of your cabinet, things are less likely to be messy and unsightly. 

Cabinets may have been out of style for a while, but they are one for the trendiest pieces of furniture to look out for coming into 2020. And now that you know how versatile they are, you are sure to have plenty of use for your new or antique cabinet.
