Things you should have in your home after the age of 30

July 15, 2016

Our home decor reflects who we are, our personalities and life story. Nevertheless, there are some things that should be banned from your house once you’re into your third decade. The shot glasses on display and photos of you clubbing with your friends might be great memories, but life moves on. Eventually things need to be taken down to make room for the future and to keep with the times.

To get rid of the old and make way for the new I’ve compiled a list of things you should have in your home by the age of 30.

A Sturdy Dining Table

Every house should have a quality made dining table for family gatherings. Having a dining table means you will have dinner parties that won’t involve your guest bringing their own chairs but do involve enjoying a nice bottle of wine. Sitting in front of the TV eating dinner will be a thing of the past.

Furniture That Didn’t Belong To Your Parents

While it was nice of your parents to give you their second hand couch, it probably doesn’t go you’re your décor. Unless it does go with you interior, ditch it and invest in quality pieces that will last.


Art you love

Art will last a lifetime and each piece can remind you of different times in your life. If you start collecting in your thirties you’ll have a huge collection of art later on in life. Art doesn’t have to cost a fortune, it just has to speak to you.

Matching Sets

There is nothing nicer than using a face washer that matches your towel or climbing into bed with cohesive bedding. Buy at least a couple of sets of matching towels and bedding, that way you will be happy to host guests.


A Plant

You know you’re an adult when you have the ability to keep a plant alive. Even when renting, having a plant in your house can make it feel like a home. Get some plants for the kitchen, like basil for on the balcony or some tomatoes in the backyard. Nothing will give you more pleasure than eating something you have grown.


A Quality Mattress and Headboard

If there is something you should invest in as an adult it is your bed. A quality mattress will ensure you’re quality of life is improved and a nice headboard brings character and personality to any bedroom.


Scented Candles
