Home Furnishings You Should Have By The Time You’re 30

In life there are things – milestones – one must reach by a certain age. Much like your first kiss or moving out of your parents’ house, owning certain home furnishings by the time you’re 30 is the next great personal achievement. Why? Because by this stage you will likely have defined your career direction and thus, got regular income stream. By the time you’re 30 you should be really getting into the adulting. And this is precisely why, as a responsible non-child, the majority of home furnishings you have should not be from IKEA.

Don’t get us wrong, we love a good Saturday IKEA sesh (those meatballs…), but it’s a little too first-year-in-college to be owning a Hafslo double mattress with no bed frame. What are the home accessories and furniture pieces you have to own by the time you hit the big 3-0?

They are:

1. A good bed (with a frame and everything!)
