One month into the new year and if you’re keeping to this year’s resolutions, you’re off to a good start. This year is all about building good habits for your home, after all, like keeping up with a cleaning schedule and opting for eco-friendly swaps whenever possible. But it’s also the perfect time to give home decor items an upgrade, especially if they’re not looking their best. Here are five pieces worth the investment this year.
A Sturdy Yet Stylish Sofa
Think of your sofa as your living room’s most valuable piece, or MVP for short.
If there’s one piece of furniture you use more than your bed, it’s the living room sofa. It’s where you lounge around, read a book and watch television. That’s why we recommend spending the extra dollar if it means you’ll get a timeless piece that can grow old with you. For starters, there are 11 types of classic sofa styles worth checking out. Personally, I like the chesterfield sofa. There’s something so luxurious about the form, especially in a leather finish.
Zero Waste Essentials
Taking the step toward minimizing disposable packaging might sound daunting at first, but it’s worth the effort if it means reducing environmental damage.
Now you might be thinking, jars and bottles are costly. That may be true if you look at the one off price, but look at them as a long term investment. Sure it’s easy to buy pre-packaged goods and leave them packed until you’ve consumed your food, but they’re notorious for filling up our landfills with unnecessary waste. By investing in various sizes of jars, bottles and reusable containers, you can easily take them to your trips to the supermarket, decline disposable packaging, and bring home fresh ingredients that sit neatly on your countertop.
Smart Home Security
There’s nothing more important than keeping your home safe, even when you’re not on vacation.
Make the most out of technology by investing in gadgets that do more than adjust lighting moods. From smart door locks to a caller ID for your front door, an additional security feature in your home makes the biggest difference to keeping you and your family safe and secure.

A Productive Workspace
It goes without saying that a dedicated workspace at home is essential to productivity.
Whether you’re working from home or are sending kids to school, there’s definitely a benefit to having a home office where you and your children can work without distractions. A nice spacious table, wall shelves for organization, an ergonomic chair are all splurge-worthy items. Here’s how to create a productive workspace according to co-working office founder.
Plenty of Plants
Last but not the least, breathe in good vibes for the year by investing in plants you can actually maintain.
We’re big advocates of having plants around the home, here at NONAGON.style, and for good reason too. Plants can reduce carbon dioxide levels while producing oxygen which is great news for our health and well-being. In addition, having greenery at home spreads positivity. Here’s the ultimate guide to sprucing up your home with indoor plants.
