Shopping. Some people love it and some people loath just the thought of it. Regardless, we can all agree shopping for the home can take a lot of time and energy. Whether you’re furnishing a new home, updating your décor or looking for one or two special items to complete your interior, homewares and furniture shopping can be a challenge.
There are ways you can make the whole shopping experience easier and less daunting. Measuring out your space before you get to the store is always important when looking for furniture. Spending time to write a list will stop you rolling into your driveway only to remember you’ve forgotten to pick up the exact item that motivated your shopping trip in the first place! And looking online at products, brands or reviews can help you narrow down your choices.
Shopping in one place is another way you can drastically reduce time and improve on the experience. That’s what we love about Nunawading Home HQ. The precinct has so many great homewares stores that makes shopping a breeze and there’s a spot for you to get your caffeine hit and allow your children to burn off excess energy.
Of course, Urban Rhythm is located at Nunawading Home HQ which just gives you another great reason to visit!
If you are looking to refurnish your home or find some pieces to refresh up your interior, have a look at our list of favourite stores and places to eat when visiting Nunawading Home HQ!
For your furniture needs
Provincial Home Living

For your bedroom and bathroom
Home Republic Vintage Washed Linen Quilt from Adairs
Buying bedlinen, towels and home accessories is so much easier when you’re able to shop in the one place. When we’re looking for these products, we’re always on the hunt for quality as these are items you use daily. There’s nothing worse than sleeping on pilled sheets or drying off on a cold winter’s morning with a thin, scratchy towel!
At Nunawading Home HQ, there are two stores we frequent to purchase items for the bedroom and bathroom:
• Bed Bath N’ Table – from quilt covers and sheets to towels, dinnerware, cushions and vases, you’ll find it all here.
• Adairs – another one stop shop that will meet all your bedroom, bathroom, furniture and homewares needs.
One of the great things about shopping in these two Nunawading stores is that they always have great sales which can help stretch your decorating budget!
For your kitchen
Need to get a few things for your kitchen while shopping for the big-ticket items like your sofa and dining table? House is well known for their extensive product range and one’s that last. Whether you’re rushing in to just pick up a new peeler or looking to invest in a new set of pots and pans, this is the store for you!
For storage solutions
Who doesn’t like an organised household? It’s one of the nicest things to open your pantry where it all looks neat and tidy and you can easily find everything. Call us crazy, but we get a bit excited about storage solutions!
There’s only one place you need to go to get your home looking organised and Pinterest worthy! Howard’s Storage World is located on the ground floor of Nunawading Home HQ and stocks solutions for your kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, laundry and even garage!
Be warned, you could lose a few hours in here if you love organisation as much as we do!
For home appliances
Also on the ground floor you’ll find The Good Guys where you can pick up a bargain on appliances for your home. You’ll find all the big names such as Dyson, Electrolux, Miele, Sony and Apple at the lowest prices.
It’s also a great place for your hubby to chill out in the Television and Audio section while you procrastinate over which white towels to buy!
To entertain your kids
If you’re crazy enough to bring your kids homewares and furniture shopping, you’ll be pleased to know there is a playground for them to burn off some energy and be entertained at Nunawading Home HQ.
BASE Camp Kids offers an indoor playground for your kids to explore and regular activities like story time, yoga and games. There’s a designated area for toddlers and babies to play away from the big kids. It’s also a great place to feed your little ones with a fresh, nut-free menu they’ll love.
Coffee at peddler café
You’ll no doubt work up an appetite after shopping for the home and probably need a caffeine hit to keep up the pace. You can enjoy a bite to eat at the Big Café in store or explore the surrounding Nunawading area when you’ve checked off all the items on your list.
We’d highly recommend you try these cafés on your day out to Nunawading Home HQ:
• The Peddler – one of the best cafés for a good coffee and tasty food.
• The Coal Pit – a great café to try some Middle Eastern flavours.
• Little Hugh – the hipster venue of Nunawading! We recommend you try the hot cakes with Nutella and poached pear.
