Home decor items are not just a way to beautify your abode. They also help to assess your age. Before you touch 30, it will be wise to keep a couch, candles that you burn and much more in your house.


Here are a few items that should be placed in your nest by the time you are 30, reports huffingtonpost.com:

* A real couch: A couch is the hub of your social life, where friends gather to talk and hangout. It's where you spend most of your alone time when you are awake. Buying a real couch is an investment and one that shouldn't be rushed into lightly. Couches should be stain-resistant, and must fit the space. Couches shouldn't dominate but need to reflect your personality.

* Candles that you actually burn: Many people like to keep candles for years to decorate house. And even when they got covered with dust you didn't burn them. It's time to burn them. The thing about candles is you can replace them with other candles and they are cheap too.

* Fresh flowers: They not only make your house beautiful, but if you buy flowers your friends will assume someone brought them to you.

* Matching towels: The thing about towels is that we only tend to replace them when we move. A new colour scheme requires a couple of new towels. So, by the time you are 30, chances are you have two tan towels, two brown towels, two towels in four shades of green -- none of them match and all of them have some life left in them. It's best to get rid of them.
