12 Things You Need To Have In Your Home To Be Considered A Grown-Up

It's time to let that futon go.

1. Your old bed frame just doesn’t hold any weight anymore. Upgrade to a bed frame that looks like it belongs to a grown-up.

Never underestimate the power of a bed frame!

2. Beer pong will always have a place in your heart, but it's time to graduate to a sleek and mature bar cabinet.

This will look so much classier. Even if you're filling it with bottom-shelf liquor.

3. Those folding chairs were probably awesome for your porch or backyard in college, but now that you’re an adult, you deserve a real outdoor table set.

Life talks are always better outdoors. *slaps mosquito*

4. Seriously, how old is that futon? Ditch it for a stylish sleeper sofa!

You made so many memories on that futon — too many, probably. It's time to say goodbye.

5. Get rid of that crate you’re using as a nightstand and get, you know, a real one.

Seriously. You need one.

6. Your books deserve a better home than your floor. Treat yourself to a beautiful new shelf that shows off how much of a bookworm you are!

You can also put fancy knickknacks on it. You'll look stylish and smart!

7. Your parents would be so proud if you traded that card table for a real dining set!

You'll feel like royalty sitting at a dinner table that doesn't fold up and actually has matching chairs.

8. Swap out that funky garage-sale mirror for a modern full-length mirror to check yourself out in!

Just imagine the selfies you'll take.

9. Your TV deserves better than a makeshift TV stand. You deserve better. Bless your TV and game consoles with an entertainment center!

This one even has a fireplace. YOU DESERVE THIS.

10. Admit it: You don't even have a coffee table. Get one now and change your life (or at least your living room!).

Adorn it with magazines, coasters, and candles, and your friends will never know you're nervously winging adulthood.

11. That desk lamp you dragged along with you from college totally lacks personality. Replace it with a unique table lamp that is both functional and fly.

A beautiful workspace allows for higher productivity. It's science.

12. To complete your totally mature new crib, trade in those old posters for some beautiful, grown-up wall art!

Nothing says "I've got my stuff together" like a home decked out with art.
