Regardless of your budget, if you are not in your dream home, there are still items to wait on. I highly suggest taking a pause on sofas, coffee tables, beds, and dining tables. These are the big pieces that set the tone for the rooms they're in and need to be the right scale. In other words, you need the perfect size, and since these items fill most of the space, you want to wait to know exactly the style you're going for.
