The Essentials You Need For Your First Apartment

August 30, 2022

Moving into your own place for the first time can be intimidating for a lot of reasons, but one of the main problems is the amount of stuff you need.

Hopefully, you’ll be able to get some hand-me-downs from family members, but you’ll inevitably have to buy a bunch of stuff too, and you’ll often fail to realise what you need until you’re already wishing for that item.

Aside from the big purchases like furniture and appliances, there are a few smaller bits and bobs that we might not think about right off the bat. Here are a few of the things you’ll need to remember to pick up.

Some Cooking Equipment

Unless you plan on living off takeout for the indefinite future, you’re going to need a few things to get cooking in your new kitchen. First of all, make sure you have the basics – a few pots and pans, a mixing bowl (which can double as a salad bowl), plates and cutlery and mixing spoons.

You should also invest in some high-quality knives and a knife sharpener to keep them in tip-top shape. A chopping board is next, and then consider other, smaller utensils like a whisk and a vegetable peeler to add to your collection.

Cleaning Supplies

You’re also going to need to keep your new apartment clean: your floors, countertops, windows and the bathroom – especially the bathroom.

Remember that you don’t need a specific product for every single different area of your home, or for every different type of mess. Investing in a few good muti-purpose cleaners will get you pretty far when it comes to keeping your home in order. Here are a few of the essentials you’ll need to buy when you first move in.

Comfy Bed Essentials

You’ll want to make sure you feel at home in your new space, and making your bedroom a comfy sanctuary is a good way to help with that.

Rather than trying to save on your bedding, spend your money on Tencel or cotton bed sheets, which will offer maximum comfort and last longer than some other fabrics. Next, decorate your bedroom a little and add some extras for ultimate comfort. Consider buying some throw cushions, a comfy blanket and a bedside table to hold all your essentials like your books and even a candle.

Bathroom Necessities

Finally, you have to stock up your bathroom with all the essentials too. Of course, you’ll bring along all your toiletries. Next, you’ll need to make sure you have a supply of toilet paper, some hand wash to keep next to the sink and a bathroom spray.

Grab a set of towels as well as a hand towel, a bath mat to manage water on the floor and a holder for your toothbrush and toothpaste. It’s also essential to keep a first-aid kit somewhere easily accessible in your home in case of any emergencies – the bathroom is a good place to store this.
