While some trends come and go, quality never goes out of style. Here are 4 must haves you shouldn’t skimp on in your new home.


Home is where you spend most of your time – a place of pride and joy and where you relax at the end of the day. And while there are things in the home that can be fine to pay less for like photo frames, indoor plants or cushions, some things are just too important to take a chance on, like your insurance. So, don’t skimp on the things that help make your home a sanctuary.


1. Furniture

You’ll be spending most of your time using your furniture, so look for items that are comfortable, durable, stylish, and long lasting.

Items like a sturdy couch with proper support, your bed, a quality mattress, a well-made dining table, are all worth the investment. Even if it goes on Facebook Marketplace a few years later, you know you’re going to get a better price and more clicks on items of quality.

2. Appliances

Essential appliances like your fridge, washing machine, microwave and stove will be used regularly, so look for quality products that are reliable, energy efficient, and will last in the long run. At Oaklands Green, high quality, energy efficient quality ovens and dishwashers are included in your house and land package price.




3. Home security and safety

Your home is filled with your loved ones and prized possessions, so it’s important to keep it safe and secure. Whether you’re looking to invest in a doorbell with a camera, quality locks, gates and fencing, or even a home security system with cameras and sensors, safety is one cost that is important to consider.

4. Home insurance

Home and contents insurance is a key element to consider when owning a home and it’s important to do your research.

It’s worth choosing an insurer you can trust and one that offers cover that will suit your needs. Make sure you read the fine print too!
