10 THINGS EVERY ADULT SHOULD HAVE IN THEIR HOME
The transition from young adult to a 'real adult' is often challenging. Add to that the ever-increasing costs of living and you get a generation of people who wait way too long to get relatively cheap luxuries that could revolutionise their life. If you're looking around the room right now and telling yourself it's time for a more grown-up home, here are ten things that will go a long way in helping you feel just a little more put together.
A good bed is one of the best early on investments you can make - no arguments allowed. It will improve your quality of sleep, help reduce stress and lessen the chances of back pains.
What's the point of having a good quality bed if you don't have nice, soft, cosy linens to go with it? Bonus adulting points if you get a set that complements the rest of your bedroom.
Quality bath towels are a must-have! Our gorgeous towels have an indulgent fluffiness that promises to deliver the ultimate spa-like experience to your home (you can't get more grown-up than this). The sets come in a varied assortment of stylish colours, designed to transform any bathroom. Also, giving a houseguest an old, faded towel from your university days is a little embarrassing.
Don't make your guests use your shower towel to dry their hands. If you haven't already, it's time to get some hand towels. Our towel sets come in a range of sizes — no excuses!
A first aid kit is just something any adult person needs to have stashed away somewhere in their home.
Time to throw away those unframed posters curling up at the corners or buy some cheap frames for a cost-effective home and maturity upgrade.
A kettle. Because you just simply cannot be microwaving water for hot drinks any more.
Plants. A plant not only instantly brightens up any space but having something to care for is really nice. They're also great little air purifiers, which is amazing if, like me, you live in a big city with lots of traffic. Take a few minutes to figure out where to put it in regards to windows/sunlight, and how often to water it - you now have a new friend.
Dish towels. They can be covered in cheesy quotes or drawings of birds, it really doesn't matter as long as you have them and use them for drying your dishes.
If you respect the surfaces in your home, please get a set of coasters (my mother would be so proud). There's nothing worse than a sad ring on your bedside table. Get creative and go on the hunt for some quirky coasters. This is fun and will hopefully encourage your friends to use them too, without you having to nag. You know you've finally reached adulthood when you get excited about buying coasters.
