You can even frame a lovely birthday card or pretty pictures from your science book. You can make your home more warm and personal by just hanging something on the walls.
  2. Greenery: A plant will light up any interior. Invest in a durable planter and indoor plant. Your home will look cosier.
  3. A comfy place to sit. Invest in a good chair. Your home is where you relax and unwind and a comfortable chair is a must.

  5. Basic utensils. Glasses, cups, plates, fork, knife, and spoon.
  6. An emergency light source. Any home will need this. You should have an inverter as well as matches, a flashlight and candles.
  7. A small toolset. A flat-head screwdriver, hammer, a head screwdriver, and pliers will be enough. They will come in handy during emergency situations. For instance, if you want to open a paint can, or fix a leaking pipe or hang a picture, etc.
  8. A bed and comfortable mattress are a must buy.
  1. A small cleaning kit. Even if you have a cleaning lady spills and mistakes happen. You need a broom, cloth and floor cleaning liquids to keep your rooms neat and tidy.
