Updating Your New Home? Upgrade Your Pad With These Super Cheap Yet Stylish Furniture

Spring is often the time when we decide our homes need a refresh. We organise our cupboards, throw out the bits and bobs, and turn into Marie Kondo for a week (or day) of “spring cleaning”. However, while spring is the time for ‘out with the old’, when exactly does the ‘in with the new’ take place? We’ll answer that one – it’s Autumn. Before all of the festive visits take place and after the chaos of summer has died down, autumn is the perfect time to visit a furniture store and upgrade your furniture and take your indoor décor to another level.

If your living space is looking a little dated and in dire need of a revamp, we have the perfect additions (or replacements)- for you to help transform your house into one which will make a lasting impression.

To begin, we have the Yaheetech TV Stand Cabinet. 

Upon purchasing our television, we may have focussed our attention on the screen size or the technology brand. What many of us do not pay heed to is what it will stand on. This is why many homes have any old table to hold the TV into place, taking away from the overall style and finish of the room. So, what’s different about this TV stand? Firstly, it consists of two large and two small open storage compartments, perfect for holding chic additions such as a stylish magazines or a speaker. Secondly, it has 2 pre-drilled cable holes in the back to help keep cables in order, because nothing can damage an interior style quite like a dusty cluster of cables. Thirdly, just take a look at the industrial design. We just love the steel X-shape detailing paired with the wooden panels.

Evidently, if there’s one thing that we appreciate here at YCB, it’s when we don’t have to sacrifice style for functionality. However, finding ‘work from home’ furniture that fits both roles was proving a difficult task. That is until, we came across the Two-Way Lift Top Coffee Table. From the concealed storage to the spring mechanism that offers you the possibility of having a floating lifted desk, this coffee table ticks all of our boxes.

Next up we have this gorgeous Hall Tree. Are your coats and scarves scattered around the house in random locations? Jackets tossed behind chairs and bags strewn across couches? This hall tree will not only help to prevent general messiness around the house, but makes a stunning addition to the hallway. What’s more, you can also store your shoes on the built-in shoe rack for easy access on those rushed mornings! There’s no denying that this addition to the home is blissfully practical. Plus, as the days get colder and the winter coats come out, you can hang your guests outerwear onto the steel hooks as you welcome them into your home. Again, the industrial style combined with the stained wooden planks allows this hall tree to multitask as an every-day staple for the home as well as a chic addition to the décor.

Speaking of visitors, we all know the struggle of trying to accommodate them during the festive season. It is that time of year when family and friends flock to your door to celebrate with you and nine times out of ten, they’ll expect a place to stay. This is when Sofa Beds come in handy. Luckily, this sofa bed is one that you can enjoy all year round, with its slick black faux leather material and sturdy build. It’s not only a life-saver for keeping guests happy, but it also adds an elegant charm to a room.  

Following this, we have these Storage Shelves. These open-planned shelves are the perfect way to both store and show off your favourite items! They act as both a display and an organisation tool. Just imagine stacking these shelves with books in the living room or your favourite accessories in the bedroom.  

Finally, we have found the ultimate Bathroom Cabinet. 

With four drawers and one cupboard, this cabinet is the perfect way to tuck away the clutter that can accumulate in bathrooms, from toilet paper to toiletries. What’s more, it also comes with a customisable shelf to keep those skincare products in order. 

With these simple additions, you can upgrade a bland living space to a home with stylish character. It’s time for ‘in with the new’- start today and make a lasting impression on your guests!
