Moving into your new home is a very exciting time but can also be daunting when it comes to decision fatigue. Aside from the choice of tiles, flooring and of course the multiple paint swatches, many new homeowners find themselves with a big question mark on where to start with their furniture choices.

We consulted the experts at Koala on their five essential furniture pieces for a new home.

1. A practical, multi-use sofa

Whether you’re looking to add some extra comfort to a tight space or need extra beds for those unexpected sleepovers, Koala’s got you covered. Go from sit to sleep in seconds with the Cushy Sofa Bed and Sofa Bed range or give your guests an elevated sleep experience and thoughtfully designed storage with the Stunner Sofa Bed. Rest easy knowing that your guests will sleep so soundly, they will never want to snooze anywhere else.

2. A mattress for a good night’s rest

Koala’s made finding the perfect mattress a breeze. With a whole range to choose from and every budget in mind, they’ve thought of everything you need to have a sweet slumber. The Koala Mattress, Calm As Mattress and Soul Mate Mattress feature a flippable Kloudcell® comfort layer for cloud-like comfort that suits you best. The mattress experts have stuffed their mattresses silly with all the technology you need to sleep soundly, like Tencel™ Lyocell covers, moisture-wicking COOLMAX® technology, and multi-layered support zones. You’ll be wondering why you didn’t take the leap (or sleep) sooner.

3. A relaxing bedroom space

The good people at Koala sure know comfort, and they know what makes a cozy bedroom space. Your new mattress will feel at home on any of Koala’s bed bases, which all boast tool-free assembly, FSC certified wood and clever, contemporary designs. Add a Cloudy, Breeze or Koala Pillow, an All Seasons Duvet and a luxurious Organic Cotton Sheet Set and Duvet Cover Set, and you’ve got yourself everything you need for a restful night’s sleep. Sounds like a dream.

4. Storage solutions for the whole house

A modern twist on an elegant classic, Koala’s Kirribilli storage range provides endless options to display your treasures in a way that only you can. Made from FSC certified wood, not only are the pieces sustainable, they’re built to last through move after move or as many living room revamps you can throw at them. Plus, with a collection that includes bookshelves in a range of sizes, coffee table, side tables, console and TV unit, Koala’s got all your home storage needs sorted.

5. Homewares to make it feel like home

It can take time for your new home to feel like…well…home. Koala’s homewares range includes soft additions to instantly elevate and cozy up your space, with cushions, throws and designer rugs inspired by Australian nature. Made from sustainable wool, recycled rPET or jute, the versatility and durability of their rugs means they’ll comfortably be the centrepiece of any space. If you’re set for rugs, Koala’s range of cushions and throws will add a sprinkle of luxury and style to any home.
