Decorating your living space can either be a fun exercise in creativity or about as stressful as moving in the first place. If you're not a natural interior designer, don't sweat it, because I'm not either. There are, though, a few essentials every place needs. If you're staring with a blank canvas, let us be your guide with these 19 basic furniture pieces. The best part? They're all from Walmart, so your bank account will be happy too.
Whether you're moving into a studio apartment or four-bedroom house, every place needs a few things, like a sofa, coffee table, bed, and a place to eat. You should also have some kind of media cabinet to put your TV on and to use as extra storage space, and a few shelves or a chest of drawers never hurt anyone. My personal pet peeve, though, is when people don't have nightstands. It makes such an enormous difference in the bedroom, and makes you feel like a real adult. Bonus points if you have two matching ones on each side of the bed. Crazy, I know, but you'd be surprised. If you're looking for some simple, chic furniture finds, these pieces were made for you.
