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.
