There's something exciting about moving in together - it's like a fresh start, a new step. It'll take time to settle in and make the place feel homey. To begin with, let's take care of the essentials.
The first thing you should do after moving in is clean your new home up efficiently. For that, there's nothing more convenient than a vertical cordless vacuum cleaner. Typical vacuums that look like a box on wheels with a trunk have completely outlived themselves. Samsung's new Jet Wall Mount series comes with a 5-stage filtration system for microparticles, dust, and allergens, together with a display showing the device's performance. Its battery lasts for about an hour of cleaning (you probably won't spend more time vacuuming the place anyway).
In a nutshell, it's a fancy TV from the Korean giant. The outstanding design by the Bouroullec brothers allows you to put it basically at any spot in the room without fixing it to the wall. The picture looks incredible thanks to the QLED technology, and Samsung's own content services make sure you always have something to watch.
If you hate cooking, you've got two options: get yourself one of those working bee-type Ukrainian brides or buy a microwave. Since your girlfriend will hardly appreciate the first one, we'd recommend you ordering the AmazonBasics Microwave. This device doesn't have a voice assistant like the pricier models, but it works perfectly with Echo gadgets that have built-in Alexa. Besides voice control, the AmazonBasics Microwave has something to surprise you, like presets for instant cooking so that you don't need to adjust the level and intensity of heating every time the dinner starts smelling bad. In total, the microwave has 10 power levels, and it also comes with a kitchen timer and a child lock.
Looking for a speaker with great acoustic characteristics that would fit into your interior design? Put this piece of Scandinavian minimalism (made of solid oak, seamless knit fabric, and aluminum components) somewhere against a wall and enjoy the sound. The Beosound Balance has 7 speakers and supports Apple AirPlay 2, Chromecast, and Multiroom, allowing you to optionally integrate it into a single home audio system spread across multiple rooms.
In case you're having trouble sleeping in a new place, the Somneo Sleep & Wake-up Light might help. Philips says its device not only naturally wakes you up with light and sound to simulate sunrise but also gradually puts you to sleep, filling the bedroom with sunset colors. Somneo has four display brightness levels, as well as sound options - seven for waking up and two for relaxing.
Today, it's all about sanitizing and purifying everything, from gadgets to pets. Add some extra protection to your castle with Bork air purifiers. Its new models - A805 and A806 - will both look great in your room and keep you safe from viruses, nasty odors, and allergens - a must-have if you're working remotely.
Self-isolation showed us how hard staying in decent shape without leaving home can be, especially when squats and push-ups aren't enough. It would be nice to have some TRX loops, harnesses, or strength bands with varying degrees of resistance, and ideally a bench with dumbbell sets. But what if you only have enough space to squeeze in a small treadmill? The market offers lots of compact options like Yamaguchi, which weighs only 55 pounds (25 kg). It starts automatically after you make three steps.
Want to feel like living in a high-tech hotel when leaving home? Get a smart door lock. Not only you'll get rid of keys that constantly scratch the phone screen in your pocket but also set up access for multiple users. Thanks to the built-in battery, the gadget can work for up to one year without recharging, and, in case of emergency, you can connect it to the network via MicroUSB. The lock allows you to open doors both through a virtual key on your smartphone and through a regular physical key.
Surprisingly, in 2020 you might still need to print something. You can always use an office printer, but when you work from home, your options are limited. There are dozens of new models on the market, but the HP Ink Tank series is one of the most promising thanks to such features as a non-standard refilling system. You can always see how much ink is left and carefully refill the printer with a non-spill bottle. Of course, you can control the device from your smartphone: print photos directly from social media, cloud, or the camera gallery, as well as scan documents - all via Wi-Fi.
