My Favourite Items of the House: Kitchen

The kitchen contains the important items for cooking and food storage such as the oven and fridge but I don’t really class these as items of furniture per-se. Instead I’m going to go for the item that some people may have in their kitchen and others might have a whole separate room for it; the dining table.

My Favourite Items of the House: Living Room

The living room is where I spend a lot of time. Whether it’s chilling out on my own, watching TV whilst enjoying a take away pizza or socialising with friends its a room that gets a lot of time spent in it.

Because of this it needs to be comfy at all times no matter what I’m doing and that’s why my favourite item in the living room is a big comfy sofa.

My Favourite Items of the House: Room by Room

Welcome to the start of my new blog post series going around the house and taking a look into each room and picking my favourite item of furniture within. Since you’re all here because of our shared passion for furniture I thought I’d go room by room and pick one item in each. It may be something I’ve got, something I am getting (such as my stylish sliding wardrobes in both the master and guest bedrooms) or a funny item that I wish I could have.

Top 10 Wardrobe Essentials for Men

A belt does that all important job of helping to keep your trousers up but is also a fancy fashion accessory. Go for black or brown depending on your preference.

A solid colour pair of jeans are a staple and can be worn on a variety of occasions.

A pair of smart black shoes can be worn with your suit of jeans depending on what style you’re going for.

Casual trainers and jeans is a cool look and if you get the right pair they can even pass as smart in a preppy kinda way.

All men should own at least one suit for job or social occasions. Grey is suave but a classic black suit is also fine.

Plain T-shirts
A range of plain coloured t-shirts give you many style options depending on how you’re feeling, where you’re going or what you’re doing.

Make sure you’ve got enough pairs to last till you next do the washing.

As with underwear, ensure you have enough to last the week and go for simple socks such as black, navy and grey.

A nice watch can really set an outfit off, especially when worn with a shirt. A statement watch is great for night’s out but may not be so good for day to day wear so think carefully on your choice.

White Shirt
A simple white button up shirt is a cool, relaxed look when worn with jeans and can be dressed up with your suit jacket.

So how many of these items have you got behind your wardrobe doors guys?

Different Kinds of Wardrobe Interiors

I've been trying to decide what style of wardrobe interiors to go for once I get my new sliding wardrobe sorted. There are many different combinations that you can get to make sure that you have enough space to store everything that you need. One option is a 3 shelf, 3 hanging section solution. The shelves are located at the top of the unit and are more of for storing items then clothes. The hanging sections have a longer section on one side with the other split into 2 hanging sections. This is great for hanging your shirts on the top one and your trousers in half on coat hangers below. The larger hanging space can be for coats and suits.

Another Use for Coat Hangers

I haven't got enough room in my current wardrobe for all my clothes you see so I've just got a bag of coat hangers ready for when I get my new wardrobe fitted.

This program is looking at people who's lives and relationships are being governed and sometimes even ruined by their hoarding habits.
