I am using Magento 2.2.2

I want to display a particular category products on homepage along with its respective layered navigation.

What I have already tried:

1) Changed home page layout to "2 columns with left bar"

2) Added a widget in home page content from admin for category id 1. Enabled pagination.

But I am not getting the default listing header for changing the product listing and neither it is displaying the layered navigation for this category on home page.

Is there any issue with this approach

Can you tell me if my approach is right or I am missing something to achieve my task.

Or is there a way that I could display a category page as my home page and the URL still remains the websites URL only i.e. nothing more than www.website.com

Here is what I did to achieve this:

Added a new category in admin and added all the products that I needed on home page with 'include in menu' set to 'no'.

Now in admin > store > configuration > general > web > default pages

Added category id as 'catalog/category/view/id/your_cat_id' in field 'Default Web URL'

By following above steps you can have any category on home page.
