If we’ve learned anything during the pandemic, it’s how important our homes really are. Our homes are the safe havens we can retreat into and feel a sense of calm, no matter what is going on outside. Now that the world is starting to open up again, homes are still a vital part of our lives, with many people even choosing to work and socialize primarily from their houses. Creating a perfect atmosphere in the home is now as crucial as ever.

In fact, you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your home to find the perfect decor pieces. You can simply visit a home goods online store such as Home City Inc. which has top quality and a variety of home décor goods available on the market.

We’ve compiled this list of tips and tricks we’ve learned over the course of 2020. Let’s recap:

1. Vitamin D: The Most Crucial Vitamin to your Lifestyle

According to experts from Harvard, vitamin D is the most vital component for combating infection and boosting the immune system. Vitamin D also has a natural positive effect on mental health. Vitamin D primarily comes from the sun, which means letting sunlight in will let your room be filled with the utmost healing and positive energy. Since the pandemic, we’ve learned just how important it is to keep yourself healthy and happy at home.

A great option for letting in sunlight is hanging sheer curtains or blinds. It's a simple and quick method to add light and make our homes seem warm and inviting. If you are looking for quality curtains, you should definitely go for the Embroidered Argyle Sheer 2-Piece Grommet Curtain Panel set or the other semi-sheer curtains available at Home City Inc.

2. Easy to Clean Rugs

COVID-19 has taught us an unforgettable lesson on the importance of cleanliness. Most of us began to reconsider how well we were cleaning items in our homes when we realized how easily harmful germs could be spread.

Because of this, it has become a priority for many households to choose easy-to-clean materials.

The rugs at Home City Inc. are designed to resist stains, handle wear and tear, and some of our collections are even non-slip. But, washing a rug can be a tedious job. Because of this, we have introduced a machine washable area rug collection. To accommodate every style of home, these rugs vary.

3. Cozy Blankets

In the previous year, we all had the chance to bond with the people and pets in our homes like never before. We’re sure the cozy blankets in your home had a huge role in increasing the closeness between the members of your household. Sleeping tight with your loved ones under a comfy blanket is sure to release oxytocin, the happy hormone that connects us with others.

Choosing a quality cozy blanket can be hard but at our home goods online store, you can easily browse and choose the perfect one for you. If you’re looking for a recommendation, try the Weighted Quilted Cotton Throw Blanket which has the highest quality cotton and is filled with tiny glass beads. Plus, the blanket is OEKO-TEX certified which means it is totally free from harmful chemicals, meaning not only are your loved ones comfortable, but they’re safe too.

4. Multi-Functional Furniture

Multi-Functional Furniture

Because space at home is vital now more than ever, furniture is also becoming more versatile. When not in use, a fold-up table may be reused as a workstation or an outdoor table and stowed away.

Multi-functional furniture is a great choice for individuals who don't have a lot of room or who want to save money. Secretary desks are a fantastic example of furniture that serves both a decorative and functional purpose.

5. Wrinkle and Bacteria Free Bed Sheets

Many people think that the key answer to a sound sleep is a high quality mattress. Because of this, people often overlook the importance of bed sheets. Bed sheets serve as the barrier between you and your mattress and keep you comfortable and insulated. They also make sure that your mattress stays clean and free of any bacteria, stains, or sweat.

Choosing the right color and quality bed sheet is not always easy. We at Home City Inc. have provided you with the best sheet set available in the present market. Our best seller is the 650-Thread Count Egyptian Cotton Solid Ultra-Soft Deep Pocket Bed Sheets, which are soft and breathable allowing you to enjoy a restful night’s sleep.

6. Eco–Friendly Bath Towels and Rugs

Bath Towels

Just imagine taking a long, hot shower and thoroughly cleaning your body just to use a towel that harbors millions of microorganisms. This means that all your hard work getting your body clean is completely canceled out. Even bath rugs that you step out of the shower on can be full of bacteria and fungi. The warm, damp temperature of a bathroom serves as the perfect breeding ground for these harmful organisms. Hence, it becomes necessary to choose the right bath towels and rugs.

It is recommended to use rugs in the bathroom which are washable, stain-free, and bacteria-free. You can easily find these rugs on Home city Inc. here.

The quality of the towel matters, too. When you’re fresh out of the shower, comfort and coziness in a towel is ideal. High-quality Egyptian Cotton is the best available when it comes to towels because of its softness and absorbency. Pure Egyptian cotton towels are available on our home goods online store. Our recommendation is the Combed Egyptian Cotton 6-Piece Bath Towel Set. It includes 2 bath towels, 2 hand towels, and 2 face towels for all your bathing needs.

7. Key to Sound Sleep – Quality Pillowcases

Pillows are an essential component when it comes to sound sleep. Pillows help to keep the upper body aligned when sleeping, reduce pressure, and harmonize the body's points.

Experts say that pillowcases with lighter colors are popular because light colors help you sleep more calmly than brightly-colored pillowcases. Egyptian Cotton pillowcases are some of the softest available and are sure to help you drift off into a deep sleep.

The 1200-Thread Count 100% Egyptian Cotton Double Pleated 2-Piece Pillowcase set is another best seller on our site. It’s high thread count means you’re getting the softest and most luxurious material to sleep on. You can even purchase the best sheet set alongside the pillowcases to complete your bedding ensemble.
