Furnish your home with the right pieces of home furniture. The great news is that we did a chunk of the work for you. We toured the areas surrounding Sheridan Towers to find the best furniture shops that will meet your needs. There are several factory outlets and specialty stores in the vicinity. You’ll find just the stuff to meet your preference and budget. Here’s a home furniture checklist to help you with your shopping!

A living room that exudes style

Choose a sofa that will make your guests go ooh la la. Your sofa is one piece of furniture you should not skimp on. It is, after all, the focal point of your condo unit. It’s usually the first thing people will see once they step into your home. It’s also the furniture you and your guests will be spending a lot of time on.

Your choice of sofa can easily make or break your home design, so don’t just hastily pick the cheapest piece you’ll find. Shop around for a piece that will make your place look elegant. Your sofa is also one of the major purchases you will make for your home. You’ll soon see that going for quality pieces will save you more money in the long run. You can head over to Heima Store for pieces that brilliantly mix function with style. You are sure to find sofas that will have your eyes popping out with delight. Located on Brixton Street in Pasig City, the store is a mere four-minute drive from Sheridan Towers.


A space for welcoming guests

Speaking of guests, you need to make them feel welcome in your home. What better way to do this than to offer refreshments? To be able to do this, you would need a coffee table. Make sure it’s a piece you can be proud of. Everyone at home is likely to spend a lot of time in the living area, so make sure it’s a piece you’ll love. The last thing you want is an eyesore right at the heart of your home.

Shop for a coffee table that perfectly matches your sense of style. You will find a wide range of options at the Ethan Allen store. For added flair, bring in an engaging coffee table book. These books are both attractive enough to add style to your space and engaging enough to actually entertain those lounging in your living room. You can head over to Booksale for a rich array of coffee table books. They’re offered at a bargain too!

Ethan Allen is located on Reliance Street in Mandaluyong, and will only require a one-minute drive from Sheridan Towers. And you’ll find a Booksale outlet in SM Mega Mall, which is only an eleven-minute drive from your condo.

Bonding over some food at dinner time, talking about how your day went, keeping up with each other’s lives — we live for these moments. Keep this in mind when shopping for a dining table. Many prioritize condo space savers, they end up with a dining table that does not accommodate everyone in their home. You can shop at BLIMS furniture store to get just the dining table that perfectly matches the number of people you need to accommodate. They offer a wide range of options — from a two-seater to an eight-seater. You will find a branch in Ortigas Center, Pasig, a short fourteen-minute drive from Sheridan Towers.


A kitchen that lets you do things efficiently

Don’t you just love how we get to do a bit of magic in the kitchen? Take the time out of your busy schedule to whip together some treats in the kitchen. Just make sure you have a well-organized space so you do not waste more time than necessary. Bring in a sideboard table that will let you do your mixing and cutting and other such kitchen tasks, while offering ample storage space to keep everything organized. Take a three-minute drive to Home Factory Outlets located on Pioneer Street in Mandaluyong, and snag a deal for the table. For your kitchen appliances, you can take a fifteen-minute drive to Automatic Center in Ortigas Avenue, San Juan. With their wide range of offerings, you are sure to find exactly what you are looking for.

Stop to consider this: you spend one-third of your life in your bed. Make it worth it. When shopping for a bed, aim for the best. You also have to take into account the fact that we often do not replace our bed until after ten years, making it a long term investment. Moreover, a good night’s sleep is essential for your health and well-being. This means your experience in bed affects the other two-thirds of your life. To find a wide range of options to choose from, head over to Ortigas Home Depot on Doña Julia Vargas Avenue in Pasig. The place is only a fourteen-minute drive from Sheridan Towers.



A space to get some work done

Having your own workspace at home will help you get more work done. This is essential if you are aiming for the stars, career-wise. Invest in a desk and a chair that will not take up too much space. Your home should primarily be a space for living and resting. Also, make sure you go for ergonomic pieces so they don’t put unnecessary strain on your body. You can shop at HMR Philippines. They offer surplus items, so you are guaranteed a bargain purchase. You’ll find a wide range of options too! Located in Pioneer, Mandaluyong, the store is only a thirteen-minute drive from Sheridan Towers.

We all experience stress from our jobs, finances, and social life. We expect to come home to a place of refuge, an escape from the stresses of life. This won’t be possible if your home is cluttered and disorganized. Having a relaxing and restful time is virtually impossible if you are surrounded by mess, especially if you don’t know where your things are. Getting even simple things done is a lot harder when you have to rummage through your home for the stuff you need. To avoid all these, make sure you keep your home spic and span. One of the key ways you can ensure this is by having ample storage and a space for everything. From filing cabinets to drawers, you will find all your storage needs in SM Megamall. Their department store has a section dedicated to home supplies. You’ll find everything you need! Located on Epifanio de los Santos Avenue, SM Megamall is only a six-minute drive from Sheridan Towers.

Aim for an optimal condo living experience. This starts with having great interiors and a well-organized home. Go get your shopping over and done with. Don’t forget to have fun while you’re at it!
