The Joy of Having a Home: Defining a 30-Something's Home Style

The home design you have in your 30s varies from the one you use to have in your twenties. The past decade was for indecisiveness and exploration. You were energetic, adventurous and curious. You were alone or with a partner. You focused on your career instead of building a family. Thus, your home was open to family and friends. It had lots of color and textures. There were mismatched covers, patterns and random pieces of furniture.

It's understandable as you had different wants and needs during that time. You also faced challenges regarding your paycheck. As you age and step up, your paycheck gets bigger and you have more money to spend. You are sure of your career path, and there might be a baby along the way. You may currently have one running in the area. Therefore, your home style turns from tacky and flashy to practical and refined.

Though some thirty-somethings already have a grasp of their aesthetic, some are still trying to figure out what they want to include in their house and lot for sale in Cavite. If you lack ideas on what to include when decorating the cheapest house and lot for sale in Philippines, here are 6 items you must have once you reach your 30s.

1. A great piece of art

Besides a lamp and overhead lights, nothing brightens your day than seeing your favorite piece of art on the wall. Gazing on the artwork for a few minutes gives you some time to reflect on warm memories.

2. A pup or plant

A living thing such as a puppy or a green leafy plant brings life to your space. It also creates a healthy environment. Dogs require movement so you'll be forced out of the house. Meanwhile, a flower or a succulent adds color and beauty while clearing the air of toxins.

3. A high-quality mattress

A garment steamer ensures your outfit is in great condition. Best of all, it makes a cheap ensemble turn to a high-end find.

6. A reliable vacuum
