Bedroom Furniture Checklist
Here are some bedroom furniture must-haves for a warm and restful sleep oasis.
There are myriads of bed frame selections offered on the market. Depending on your preferences, you may benefit from a sturdy wooden bed, metal bed, leather, faux leather, or fabric bed frame.
When buying a new bed, it’s paramount to also buy a new mattress to enjoy your best sleep upgrade. Mattresses come in different types, sizes, and firmness levels. Depending on your needs, you may choose from a conforming memory foam, a supportive latex, a comfortable innerspring, a premium pocketed spring, or an innovative hybrid mattress.
Wardrobe or Chest of Drawers
Good bedroom storage makes a big difference in your room’s look and comfort. Wardrobes are spacious and elegant, giving your bedroom an instant statement while giving you versatile storage space for your clothes, shoes, linens, accessories, and other items. Chests of drawers are efficient for compact bedrooms, shared spaces, and guest rooms.
Anchor your bed with charming and functional bedside tables. Depending on your preference, you may opt for a single nightstand or have one for each side.
Upgrade your bedroom’s elegance with a sophisticated and versatile dressing table. Choose the best combination of compartments, drawers, and a vanity mirror to boost the look of your bedroom space.
Living Room Furniture Checklist
Build a welcoming bonding space with these charming and functional living room furniture essentials.
A living room is not complete without a sofa. Whether you want a 3-seater sofa, a loveseat, or a spacious L-shaped sectional, you will surely find a style that suits your personality the most.
Gather everyone around your statement coffee table. This living room furniture must-have offers ample space for entertaining. It also promotes a balanced living room design.

Dining Room and Kitchen Furniture Checklist
Celebrate holidays and share hearty meals with your loved ones with these cosy dining room furniture pieces.
A dining room table plays a big role in every home in Singapore. This spacious furniture keeps families together to share scrumptious meals and enjoy moments together. This flexible furniture can also function as a makeshift study or work-from-home table when not used for dining.
Dining Chairs or Benches
Complete your dining set with cosy dining chairs or benches. Choose from sturdy pieces or upholstered seats. If you're short on space, try some dining benches that you can easily tuck under the table. If you have a kitchen island instead of a dining table, opt for cosy bar stools.
Kitchen Cabinets and Buffet Hutches
Keep your appliances, pantry supplies, and kitchen essentials in place with secured kitchen cabinets and buffet hutches. Many kitchen and dining room storage items are made from quality wood products, but you can also experiment with other materials like marble to give your space a modern flair.
Remotely working on your new home? Here are some office furniture selections to maximise your comfort and productivity.
Whether you opt for a compact office desk or an L-shaped table, it’s a good idea to add an office table to your furniture checklist. This is to give you a consistent space to work in without any hassle. Choose the right filing cabinet or pedestal to keep your files in one place.
An ergonomic office chair is a game changer if you spend 40 to 45 hours working per week. An ergonomic chair will support your sitting posture while preventing potential injuries and inconveniences.
