Home is sanctuary. It’s where we let our hair down, hang out in comfy clothes, and get to be ourselves.
Your home-mate(s) should be part of your comfort. They should be as comfortable as the comfy clothes you choose. What does it take to choose well? Many things. Here are tools we have created to help you in your selection process. Check out what we have put together.
