The tech gadgets & home appliances I got as a newlywed (and why you should too) – TechNave

At one point in your life, you would be getting married and soon be moving into a new place with your life partner (or maybe you already did). Besides settling down together, there are also a bunch of questions about what furniture to get and perhaps in this modern age, what kind of tech gadget and home appliances do you need in the household?

Of course, every couple has different needs and wants. So as a disclaimer, this is my personal list of tech gadgets and home appliances I got as a newlywed and why I think you should too (especially if you’re a modern millennial like me). If you fit into this category, go on below to check out my recommendations. 


1) A man cave/workstation setup 

If there’s anything that we learned from the pandemic these past two years, it’s that we now understand the importance of having your own space to keep your mind sane or a breather for some privacy. Having a small office at home is quite common, especially when it’s just the two of you but when it comes to apartments, you would have to make some adjustments.

The gadgets on my home office computer table (L-R) – ASUS TUF gaming laptop, laptop stand, Ruark Audio MR1 Mk2 Bluetooth speakers, a mini humidifier, Acer Aopen 27HC5RP gaming monitor, Xbox 360 wired controller, K660 mechanical keyboard, large leather mousepad keyboard mat, Logitech G703 wireless gaming mouse, RGB light stand and an Edifier G4 gaming headset

In my case, I have decorated and set up my first man cave (it’s a term for men to have a place to relax and pursue hobbies away from the rest of the family – Google definition) in my small apartment. Besides playing PC games, I use my mancave as my workstation as well since I’m still working from home. 

Keep in mind that to set up your man cave, you would need to spend quite a lot especially if you want to “syok sendiri” with your gamer aesthetics. A man cave can also be other things like a gaming console room, a quiet place for reading, or even a place for your significant other to have some alone time. 


2) A decent TV and soundbar setup

Having a TV in the living is quite a no-brainer for most newlyweds, but for those who are quite particular about having a decent entertainment experience, it’s a different story. No TV would be completed without a good soundbar and perhaps even throwing in a Nintendo Switch in there like myself. 

As we have written it before, there are actually a few factors in getting a TV for your living room. Getting a 50-55-inch smart TV is usually good enough for apartments that are around 800sf and above. Otherwise, getting a huge TV (65-inch and above) would almost be the equivalent of sitting in the front row seats of a cinema. An 8K resolution TV and even high refresh rates aren’t that important because current movies and TV shows aren’t …….
