5 Must-Haves for Your New Home

16 Jul. 2021

You moved two weeks ago into your new home: a 2-bedroom condo, in the heart of the Plateau, in Montreal. Although it’s been a little over 14 days, you still haven’t taken the time to get comfortable in your new nest. Boxes are still waiting to be opened, and the only art hanging on your wall is this year’s calendar. Luckily for you, we’re here to remind you that it’s essential to stay comfortable, even if it hasn’t been long since your move. This week’s Top Five Friday regroups 5 must-haves for your new home in case you haven’t taken the time to settle in yet. 

Comfortable Pillows 

A good night of sleep begins with comfortable pillows. Although it seems obvious, comfortable, soft pillows are the secret to restful sleep. It’s good to invest in your well-being! During your visit to your neighbourhood’s sleep shop, choose the best ones, you won’t regret it. 

Bright Plants

We said it a hundred times, and we’ll keep saying it: plants can alter the feel of a room in a matter of minutes. To make your home feel more like home, don’t be scared to add many plants—living or not. They’ll quickly decorate your space and make it brighter and homey-er. 

A Standing Vacuum 

This must-have is ideal if your home is a mess. It probably is a mess, given that boxes are still standing in the hallway. Our favourite vacuum is a standing one since it’s easy to move around in tight spaces and makes cleaning a fun, relaxing activity. Put your earphones on, press play on your favourite podcast, and vacuum away all the dust you can from July 1st. 

A Gourmet Meal Kit 

Tired of eating out? Opt for a delightful meal kit that gets delivered to your door every week. In Montreal, our favourites are CookIt and Goodfood, two excellent meal services that adapt to your tastes and needs! It’s a must-have for your new home since it’ll save you all the grocery runs without breaking the bank. 

An Easy-to-Assemble Sofa 

Ahhh, we couldn’t not put this in this week’s 5 must-haves for your new home! A Cozey sofa, delivered right to your doorstep, is the perfect choice for a city nest. It comes in boxes and takes little to no time to assemble! Keep it simple but keep it comfortable too. 


Every Friday, we release a Top 5 of things we hope will make your life simpler and better.  After all, that’s what Cozey stands for; simplicity and comfort.  See you next Friday!
