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.

Choosing the Right Type of Mattress


There are a lot of different types of mattresses to choose from when it's time for a new bed. If you are going to soon be in the market for a new mattress of your own, then you will want to learn more about some of the different things that you should be considering before you go out and buy your next mattress. Here are a few of the things you should consider: 

1. You prefer a more firm bed

If you prefer a firmer bed, then you are going to want to look for a mattress that has memory foam. This is going to give you a mattress that has less bounce to it than a bed that has springs will give you. A mattress with memory foam will give you one that forms more to your body when you are lying on it. 

2. You prefer a bed that has some bounce to it

If you like to have a bed that has a bit of bounce to it, then you are going to set out to purchase a bed that has springs. The springs will go up and down under the pressure of your body. A bed with springs can also have other built-in features as well, such as plenty of cushion on top to shield you from the springs so you don't feel them under you, but still get the benefits of the bounce they offer. 

3. You prefer a top so plush it almost feels like a pillow

If you like to feel as if you are sleeping on a pile of soft pillows, then you are going to want to make sure that you look for a bed that features a nice pillowtop. There are pillow tops out there that offer just a touch of that plushness and then there are ones that have a pillow top feature with a lot of inches, and this would allow you to feel the amount of softness that you prefer. A good rule of thumb is to get a mattress that has a bit more firmness to it underneath the pillow top because this will help it to last longer. 

4. You like some variety

If you find that some nights you like a more firm mattress and others you prefer a softer one, then there is a way that you can get the feel of a mattress that you want each night. This is to go with a mattress that has an air-filled feature that you will maintain control of. You will be able to control the levels of air in the inner pockets, so you can change the way that the mattress feels each night.
