Guide to choosing the best living room furniture.

If you have just recently moved into a new home, then you would probably understand the actual difficulty of having to buy furniture that will fully make your house a home. While most people end up buying more than what they set out to buy, in other cases it is just not enough. It is always best to start with buying minimal pieces in the beginning and then progress to buying more in time. For that you can start with all the day to day furniture and the absolute necessities for the house like a sofa, a bed, chairs, a dining table and other kinds of furniture to furnish the living space. You could then go on to add elements to your entire living space from there.

Things to look at before buying furniture online.

While most living room furniture are entirely based on your requirements, the overall spacing, the furniture designs and what you would want to add in it, it’s also important that you identify the actual focal point of the living room. The idea is to choose the living room furniture that can go on to make for great conversation areas. It should also help to take care of the possible traffic flow within the living room. You can find the best living room furniture online if you look in the right places.

  • A comfortable sofa set is definitely a critical investment for any home. For that, it’s alright to even splurge on a good sofa set as you might ideally spend a lot of time on it or otherwise. A Sofa should probably be the best investment for any small home.
  • A center table, dining table or even a coffee table is key to amp up the living space. You can opt for either a minimalistic or a bulky wooden one. That entirely depends on the space in the house. The furniture designs can essentially vary to match the overall theme of the house.
  • If your living room tends to double up as a TV room, then you may want a good side table and other cabinets to keep in each space.
  • A dining table and the chair can essentially be the only critical requirements in a dining room. Keeping in mind the size of the family or the number of people you tend to host you can opt for a 4 seater table or a 6 seater dining table. You can also choose from the stylish round tables to the regular angled ones based on your style preference.
  • The bedroom has a whole new difference of furniture requirements for its ambience. With that in mind, you can choose to opt for either a king size bed for the master bedroom. If the space is less then a queen size bed would even do. The remaining bedrooms could house a queen size or single beds, with consideration to the space.
  • Mattresses are a long time invest so you may want to take your time on choosing the ones that go a long way with you. You can choose from sprint, coir, foam and all sorts of mattresses that ideally keep you all snuggled up at night.

Now that’ve seen what we need to look out for, let’s get into the specifics of the absolute must-have furniture for your home as well as the various furniture designs available online.

Best sofa sets for your living space

There’s something really relaxing about chilling out in your new living room. A sofa can do to you want a bed can in terms of comfort and for that it becomes a must-have for the living space. Getting a new sofa can just be the perfect addition for lounging or even relaxing at the end of the day.

A sofa can oddly not even seem like an essential item, but if you have a family or plan to entertain a few guests, then investing in a sofa can really knit the whole place together and make people feel more connected. The tip to buying a good sofa is to choose its style, quality and pick from the prices. While you research, you will be able to quickly finalize the cost and the approximates to understand which sofa is ideally priced and which is on the pricier side. Then opt between the styles and the fabrics to go with the theme. Also keep a close eye on the color, its accents and the size. This is where you can pick a sectional to play with your space.

Which sofa is best for the living room?

If you are looking to choose the best sofa set for your living room, then it is important to understand and analyze every tiny detail of your living room and register the size, style, colors, layout etc. This will help to establish harmony. L-shaped sofa’s can help optimize the space while wooden or leather sofas can greatly lift the look and make the place look way more luxurious. Corner sofas are also distinctly more modern in the overall style and can naturally suit all contemporary homes. Corner sofas ca also allow you to fully maximize your floor space thus creating different zones within a much larger living area that comes with a natural partition.

Buy dining table set online

Since you are actually moving into a new home, you may want to have it host a bg party with friends and family. For that you will definitely need a nice looking dining table to keep the place full and with life. The dining table then not only becomes the most essential furniture item for any home, it also becomes a highly flexible piece of furniture that can then go on to be used as a desk, a craft table, and so much more. Your dining table is likely one of the most used and appreciated furniture items in the entire house.

You may not be fully prepared to purchase a huge dining table right away as it can be expensive, but investing in a small functional table is definitely possible and can add to be an important item to cross off from the essential furniture list. Shop around to actually determine what size of table you will need to make it work for your immediate needs. Then you can plan on what table you may need in the future and keep it functionally for the entire living space then. But for eating or communal dinner and all the get togethers, a dining table is an absolute must-have!

When actually purchasing a 4-seater modern-looking dining table set, it’s always crucial to consider its overall size, the basic details in the style, it’s design, and the material. The most frequently bought dining table is that of the four-person set. This will look just fantastic in your dining area with four seats arranged around it. If space and price is not a constraint then you can invest on a 6 seater dining table which is definitely one of the most coveted tables among several customers. But certainly most people stay ignorant of the advantages and the disadvantages that can accompany a six-seater table. If you are aware of why you need a big dining table and if the purchase is planned then it’s certainly a stand out piece for any home.

Best dining chairs for you dining table

With a great dining table you will of course want to get some matching dining chairs to fully go along with that cool brand-new table. It’s essential to look for chairs that match or feature the theme of the table. You can also make a purchase of the complete set, that is one which comes with a dining table and a dining chair. This will be very nicely coordinated in look and style.

Buy office chairs at affordable prices

You can always make a great office space within your home with the work from home situation and for that you will need the right office chairs. If you actually work from home or if your child is learning remotely, then a nice desk is surely another must-have for your new home. While executive desks can be larger in size and can always have a lot of drawers for that extra storage, they can go on to occupy a lot of space. If your new home is devoid of the space, then a sleek writing desk will definitely be fine. Either way, it’s always a good idea to allocate a space for a desk to your list so that way you can get your work done while at home or assist the kids with their homework.

For a good office/work-from-home/ study chair you will need to look into it’s top features:

  • Backrest
  • Seat height
  • Seat pan characteristics
  • Material
  • Armrest benefits
  • Stability

With all these considerations, an ergonomic chair will be the perfect fit for your work-from-home needs. You can couple with with a great desk to keep in your study.

The best comfortable Beds

If you feel your current bed is old and worn-out, then it’s probably great to buy something new. You will need to determine what is the size of your room and then plan on the new bed. Most homes come with a master bedroom, this will give you enough and more space for a queen or king-size bed. For the kids room, you can consider a bunk bed if they will be sharing a room along with the othe kids room furniture. The guest bedrooms can be filled with a nice twin or full-size bed. It’s always a fact that a new bed is definitely a wonderful way to create a very warm, comfortable and welcoming space.

Mattresses a must as bedroom furniture

A comfortable mattress is definitely another highly essential furniture item that can elevate the feel of your home. Older mattresses won’t really give your body the needed support to stay cozy throughout the night and for a good night’s rest. Consider buying a good quality mattress that can go with your bed and with everything that is fresh in the new place. Whether it’s going to be a memory foam, innerspring, or even a hybrid type, mattresses can surely make all the difference when it goes to sleeping well at night.

What are the different types of mattresses available?

The different types of mattresses that are available in the market generally all solve a wide range of purposes and come with their own set of benefits. They range from:

anker, wireless, power, bank
  • Medium-hard mattresses
  • Gel-based mattresses
  • Spring foam mattresses
  • Water-based mattresses
  • Inflatable mattresses

These are some of the very innovative options that are available. But other than that there are the traditional coir, straw, and cotton-stuffed variants as well.

Buy the best Living Room furniture

Since you’ll undoubtedly going to be spending a lot of time in your new living room, a few tables is a must have. Its also always a wise addition to include in this part of your new home. Having a sturdy coffee table is just great for creating a central conversation area. Also look for a set of matching side tables as part of the living room furniture that you can also be placed on both ends of your sofa. Having a sleek and slender coffee table is surely an awesome option for your new home.

The best power banks 2022

Choosing a power bank can be a minefield. There are cheap ones, pricey ones, and sometimes you’re paying simply for a name – but there’s a lot more to finding the perfect portable charger than looking at price alone.

Some other things you might consider include speed, both in charging your connected device and recharging the bank when it empties. Capacity is important, too: it needs to be high enough to get your through the day with juice to spare – even share – without weighing down your or bag.

Ports and connections matter, too. What are you charging? A phone, a laptop, a watch? The number and range of ports is important, and if you want to avoid carrying multiple cables then you could look for a version with built-in cables or wireless charging.

While we care about design, it’s actually much lower on our priority list than the things we mention above – unless, of course, we have need for a particularly rugged model or something that supports solar charging because we’re going to be away from mains power for an extended period. That’s not to say we won’t appreciate added extras such as an LCD screen and waterproofing – don’t you want the coolest and most convenient power bank you can get for your money?

These days, it’s even possible to rent power banks as and when you need them (check out ChargedUp). Mind blown. To ensure you get the very best power bank for your needs, whatever that looks like, read on for more detailed buying advice below our chart.

Best power bank reviews

Zendure SuperMini X3 – Best 10000mAh Power Bank

The Zendure SuperMini X3 certainly isn’t the cheapest 10000mAh power bank around, but it makes up for that in specs.

The headline is the 45W USB-C PD charging – for both input and output. That means you can re-charge the power bank itself in just an hour or so, but also that this is fast enough to meet the max charging speeds on most Apple and Samsung phones, and can even keep many laptops running.

The same port also supports the PPS standard at up to 33W speeds.

There are also two USB-A ports, one at 18W and another at 15W, and you can use all three ports simultaneously with 15W speeds from each.

Throw in the small LCD display to report battery life and the light and compact design (in a range of four colours, no less) and it’s easy to see why you might want to spend a little extra for the SuperMini X3.

Charmast 10,400mAh Power Bank – Best Value Power Bank with LCD

There was a time when power banks with LCD displays were rather expensive, but have now come down as the screens filter through to even affordable models like this.

The power bank also has three outputs, which will come in handy if you have multiple devices to charge. There are two full-size USBs, plus a USB-C PD port that can act as both input and output, and all three support 18W Quick Charge – although only one at a time.

On the side is an additional Quick Charge 2.0-compatible Micro-USB, which can also be used for charging the bank. It will charge in about 3.5 hours with a Quick Charge/PD adapter, but about 5.5 hours with a standard 10W charger.

anker, wireless, power, bank

The downside of the design is that it’s a bit bigger than many of the super-slim, similar-capacity models on the market. This Charmast is roughly the same width as a phone, but a little shorter and a fair bit chunkier. It weighs in at 228g, which you may decide is better suited to a bag than your

Charmast supplies a soft mesh carry case and a short USB-A to USB-C cable in the box, a nice touch.

Zendure SuperMini Go

  • Interesting camera-inspired design
  • Supports 15W wireless charging
  • Strong device support
  • Available only via IndieGoGo (for now)
  • LCD is a little dim and can be difficult to read

The Zendure SuperMini Go is something a little different: a power bank that tries very hard not to look like one.

Zendure’s design is inspired by classic cameras, which is if nothing else a fun way to incorporate the large ring required for wireless charging – which here sits right where a camera lens would be. Instead of a viewfinder, there’s a rear LCD display to show battery percentage – though be warned that this is quite dim and hard to read.

It’s available in silver and black finishes, along with our more out there ‘Sunset Cyan’ gradient.

The SuperMini Go isn’t all about looks though, and it has some solid specs to match. The total capacity is 10,000mAh, and in addition to 15W wireless charging (with a magnet to keep phones steady) there’s 20W USB-C charging and 22.5W USB-A charging.

Compatibility is impressive too – not only will this work with both iOS and Android devices, but the ‘X-Charge’ mode is capable of topping up lower power devices like wearables and headphones, which not all power banks support.

The SuperMini Go is available now for backers on IndieGoGo with discounted launch pricing from 44 (down from an official price of 69), but with Zendure’s track record it’s very likely this will be in stores including Amazon before long.

JIGA 30,000mAh Power Bank – Most Versatile Power Bank

JIGA is a new name to us in terms of power bank tech, but its 30,000mAh power bank is interesting for a number of reasons – and not least the huge capacity, which will be some comfort on trips away from mains power.

While it’s something of a throwback to power banks from a couple of years back, with its built-in LED flash (certainly useful for camping trips) and durable but plasticky design, it also takes us back to the days where you didn’t have to sacrifice ports for portability.

It’s surprisingly small for such a high-capacity bank, but it’s more bag- rather than.friendly.

The JIGA has USB-C, Micro-USB and Lightning inputs, allowing you to fill its battery using whatever cable you have to hand. It’s a shame that the USB-C port doesn’t also work as an output, but there are three full-size USB-A outputs, each rated at 10.5W.

This isn’t the Power Delivery speeds we’re becoming increasingly familiar with today, but it’s plenty fast for charging a phone (or multiple phones).

If all you need is a healthy stream of power to keep topped up a number of mobile devices, this JIGA power bank will be a very handy device to have around.

Anker PowerCore Essential 20,000 PD – Best 20,000mAh Power Bank

Hailing from Anker, a respected brand in the power bank market, this 20,000mAh portable charger represents very good value at this capacity.

The 345.5G Essential is a black plastic brick, though relatively compact for the amount of power it can hold. It has a textured top surface that improves grip in the hand, as well as the overall appearance.

We’re pleased to find support for Power Delivery, but do note that it’s only up to 18W, and therefore not likely to be sufficient to charge a USB-C laptop. Still, for quick-charging a phone or tablet, this is a useful device.

A full-size USB output that uses Anker’s PowerIQ smarter charging algorithm is joined by a USB-C port that is both input and output. On top is a power button with four integrated LEDs that reveal remaining capacity, and you can use this to enter a trickle-charging mode suitable for smartwatches and earbuds.

A USB-C to USB-C cable and soft mesh carry case are provided in the box, which is a nice touch.

Anker PowerCore III 10K Wireless – Best Wireless Power Bank

The Anker PowerCore III 10K Wireless is a Qi wireless charger with a special feature: you can use it as a portable power bank, too, which can be super handy.

You can use it at home or work plugged in, and carry it around with you for wired or wireless charging when you are away from a power socket. Because it’s wireless, there’s no need to carry a cable around with you.

As the name suggests, the PowerCore III 10K has a decent sized 10,000mAh battery, which should offer at least three charges from the power bank before it needs recharging itself.

The wireless charger is rated at 10W. Place your device on the centre of the circle. We didn’t find the placement too sensitive, as some wireless chargers can be. It’s not auto-start, though – as a power bank it requires you to push the button first.

You can also charge from the two USB-A ports at one end – at a total of 18W, so charging two or three (one wireless, two wired) devices will split that power output.

Anker PowerCore Magnetic 5K – Best MagSafe Power Bank

This portable wireless charger is one of the best accessories you can get for your iPhone.

In essence, it’s a 5,000mAh palm-sized power bank that will charge your compatible iPhone simply by snapping it onto the back with MagSafe.

It works through some cases, charges over USB-C, comes in a range of colours and, even if you don’t have MagSafe, can be used to charge almost anything via cable.

A handy set of LEDs indicates how much charge the PowerCore has remaining.

Moshi IonGo 5K Duo – Best Design

It’s expensive, but you’ll pay out for the IonGo 5K Duo from Moshi if style is as important to you as is functionality.

Almost identical in design to the IonGo 5K before it, but here with both USB-C and Lightning cables built-in (hence the name Duo), the Moshi is an undeniably cool-looking power bank that comes tucked away inside a vegan-friendly soft leather case with a magnetic clasp and an anodised aluminium faceplate.

The additional cable means it’s now suited to Android as well as iPhone users, although as before this is Made For iPhone-certified.

This is a truly premium device with a colossal 10-year warranty going a long way to account for its higher asking price. It’s also possibly the dinkiest 5,000mAh power bank we’ve seen, suggesting there are some serious high-tech components inside.

At this capacity, expect a full charge for any Android phone, and potentially two for iPhone. Moshi claims the bank will also retain that power for up to 27 months when left unused.

Charging is up to 15W over USB-C and 12W over Lightning. Use Lightning and USB-C together and you’ll see slightly slower charging speeds, with a max total output of 3.4A (17W).

You can also use the USB-C cable for recharging the bank, again up to 15W. Better still, the Moshi supports passthrough charging, allowing you to charge both it and a connected device at once, but given that there’s no separate input here that’s going to work only with iPhone.

The Duo is currently out of stock at Amazon, but you can still pick up the iPhone model.

FAQ

What capacity power bank do I need?

Don’t fall into the trap of thinking a 3,000mAh power bank will give your 3,000mAh battery smartphone a full charge, and that a 9,000mAh power bank will charge it three times. No portable charger runs at 100% efficiency. In truth, most average between 60- and 70%, with the best-performing models able to reach 80- or 90%. Wireless charging models may be less efficient still.

To work out what capacity bank you need, first check the spec of the device you want to charge to find out its battery capacity, then decide how many times you want to be able to charge it. For a rough estimate, calculate Connected device battery capacity x Number of recharges x 1.6 = Minimum power bank capacity you should look to buy.

As a rule of thumb, a 5,000mAh bank is a single-charge device, 10,000mAh hits the sweet spot between capacity and portability, and you want to look for closer to 20,000mAh for a laptop. We’ve got some of those high-capacity power banks here – just don’t try to stuff any of them in your !

How long does it take to recharge a power bank?

The time required to recharge a power bank will depend on its capacity, what you are using to recharge its battery and whether or not it’s empty.

For the fastest charging you should look to the new breed of power banks that support graphene technology and charge over a DC input (such as the Chargeasap Flash Pro – a 25,000mAh bank that can get to 80% in 45 mins and 100% in 70 mins), but these tend to be pricey.

For mainstream power banks, the fastest you’ll find is a USB-C inout/output that supports Power Delivery. This standard now goes up to a maximum of 240W, but in portable chargers you should expect to find an 18W port. Using such a port, the average 10,000mAh power bank might recharge in 2-3 hours from empty.

The cheapest models still tend to charge over Micro-USB, usually at around 10-12W. Avoid 5W power banks like the plague unless they are very low in capacity or you’re not in a rush.

What is passthrough charging?

Passthrough charging allows you to simultaneously charge devices connected to a power bank and the power bank itself. It’s a very handy solution if you are short on mains power outlets and need to get multiple devices charged up overnight, for example. However, not all power banks support it, so be sure to check the spec of your portable charger before you buy.

How do I know how much power is left in my power bank?

Assuming you know how much capacity it had when full, you can work out how much power remains either through a series of LEDs on the casing (usually activated by plugging in a device to charge or pressing a button on the side), or via the LCD if your power bank supports one. LCDs are preferrable, because they give a more accurate readout, particularly when it comes to higher-capacity power banks.

What are GaN power banks?

GaN is short for gallium nitride. It requires fewer components than traditional silicone chargers, which means power banks that use the technology can be less bulky and more efficient. If portability is your primary concern, then as well as considering the power bank’s capacity you should also look for one that uses GaN.

What charging speed should I look for in a power bank?

The first power banks on to the market ran at 5W, which is the same speed as the original iPhone chargers (aka slllllloooooowwwww). We wouldn’t recommend anything below 10W these days. This speed is known as ‘fast charging’, and it’s still rather common in cheaper models, but it’s not really the fast charging we’ve become accustomed to today. So many of the latest smartphones now support super-fast wired charging, and it seems crazy not to buy a portable charger that supports that top speed if possible.

The standard your phone uses to achieve its top charging speeds is important here. Some have proprietary technologies that work only with accessories manufactured and sold by that company. Some offer fast charging through Quick Charge or Power Delivery. Some support neither Quick Charge nor Power Delivery, but do support protocols such as PPS (Programmable Power Supply) or SCP (Super Charge Protocol). Make sure the portable charger you buy matches the fast charging standard supported by your phone.

The term Power Delivery does not in itself denote a performance rating. It could be capable of delivering anything between 18W and 240W. This is particularly important if you’re looking to charge a USB-C laptop – anything under 30W won’t cut it, many laptops will refuse to play ball below 45W or even 60W, and some larger laptops might require 90W. You will need to check the spec of your laptop to know what speed it requires.

At the other end of the scale, if you need to charge a low-power device such as a smartwatch or a pair of wireless earbuds, look out for a power bank that is certified for low-power devices. Many of those that are not will simply cut out when you try to charge these devices, because they aren’t able to detect a significant drain on the battery.

Power bank manufacturers rarely provide the speed of their outputs in watts. Instead you’ll see a rating in amps, which you multiply by the voltage rating (usually five) to get the rating in watts. So 2A x 5V = 10W.

What is Power Delivery?

USB-C and USB PD are often confused, but the important thing to remember is that USB-C is a reversible connection type, while USB PD is a power delivery specification, overseen by the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF) and often expressed simply as ‘PD’. With version 3.1 of the specification, Power Delivery is able to carry up to 240W of power plus data over USB-C (previously limited to 100W), but devices that support Power Delivery can range from 18W right up to 240W.

What is Quick Charge?

Quick Charge is a Qualcomm fast-charging protocol that runs on the Snapdragon processors we see inside many smartphones, hence it has become commonplace in the mobile market.

The latest version is Quick Charge 5, which operates at up to 100W and supports USB PD PPS. However, while they are often seen together, Quick Charge and Power Delivery are not the same thing.

Quick Charge 5 is a massive jump up from Quick Charge 4/4, more efficient and able to run cooler and safer, and Qualcomm says it can get a device to 50% in just 5 mins. It is backwards-compatible with earlier versions of the protocol, including 18W Quick Charge 2/3, which are still very common in power banks.

Which outputs should I look for in a power bank?

The type and number of outputs you will need on a power bank depends entirely on what device or devices you want to charge. Pretty much all power banks have a full-size USB output that you can use to plug in your own cable, but it’s not always going to be the fastest way to deliver a charge to your device. You’ll also find USB-C and Lightning outputs, magnetic wireless charging pads and AC outlets if you shop around. Some power banks even have built-in cables to stop you needing to carry around your own, though you will still need one handy to recharge the power bank itself.

Why is the maximum output of a power bank important?

Some power banks have multiple outputs for charging your connected devices, but few power banks are able to simultaneously support all of them at the top advertised speed. Watch out for those that have a lower maximum output than the sum of all ports together. Also be wary of those that have multiple outputs but a very low capacity – these aren’t really designed for plugging in multiple devices, only to be versatile.

What happens when my power bank is more powerful than my connected device?

There is no need to worry about plugging devices into ports that are capable of delivering more power than the device is able to accept, since USB devices will draw only the power they need. Many power banks include technology that is able to intelligently dole out this power among ports more appropriately, depending on what devices you are attempting to charge (often known as Power IQ or similar).

Can I take a power bank on a plane?

Yes, but it must be in your hand luggage, and if it is higher in capacity than 27,000mAh (100Wh) you will need to check with the airline before flying. Make sure you take it out your bag as you pass through security. If a power bank is damaged then it will not be allowed on the plane as it could become a safety hazard. You should also ensure the specifications are clearly printed on the side of its case, as is the norm.
