Best First Apartment Essentials

#1 Bedroom Essentials

Of course, you’ll want to start by getting the essentials for the most important space; your bedroom. You will start with your basics like your bed and all of the linens for your bed, pillows, a dresser, and all of the things that you think of when you think of a standard bedroom. You will want to be sure that you have plenty of organization to keep all of your things in order, as well. Once you have all of those, you can start thinking about the style and design of your room and start gathering your décor and accent pieces. Things like lamps, a full-length mirror, and curtains will enhance your bedroom but will also be functional items that you will use every day. Starting with your bedroom will immediately make you feel right at home in your new apartment.

#2 Kitchen Essentials

The kitchen is where you will spend a lot of your time whether it’s cooking meals for yourself or entertaining guests and there are a ton of essentials that will make your life easier. A good set of pots and pans will be the perfect place to start. Getting a set is typically more cost efficient than individual items and you will have plenty of sizes to cook everything in. After you get those, you can then move on to all of your cooking items. Spatulas, spoons, baking sheets, mixing bowls, a knife set, and measuring spoons will be almost everything you need to prepare basic meals. Then, you can move onto your utensils, plates, bowls, glasses, and the items that you will use to eat. Once you have all of the basics, you can then start collecting more specific items that you use for your meals. Having a fully stocked kitchen will make you feel at ease as you learn your new kitchen.

#3 Bathroom Essentials

Your bathroom may get overlooked in the move since there isn’t any furniture that you will need, but there are still a few items you will need to pick up. Things like a nice towel set, a bath mat, and a small trash can will ensure that your bathroom is at least functional when you first move it. You can then gather the smaller things like a few organization pieces, a soap dispenser, and a drain cover that will help the space be more functional. You will also want to make sure that you’re fully stocked up on all of your toiletries and cleaning items so you can wipe down the bathroom before you use it. There is nothing more important than having all of your essential items in your bathroom when you first move in.

This list covers the very basic items that you will need when you move into your first apartment and will give you a good starting point to create your own home. See all that awaits at our apartments for rent in Lewisville, TX and contact us at Merit today for more information!
