Lists of Things You’ll Need for Your First Home

Lists of Things You’ll Need for Your First Home
Kitchen essentials

  • The kitchen is the heart of your home. It’s where you’ll spend a lot of time, so it’s important to make sure it has everything you need.
  • If you’ve moved into an apartment or condo, there are going to be some things that aren’t included in the basic necessities: pots, pans, and baking dishes. It’s also likely that some of your furniture won’t have enough storage space for all those items. You’ll want appliances like a microwave oven or dishwasher too.
  • Organize your kitchen so it works for you by storing the things you use most often on shelves within easy reach and putting less-used items out of sight in cabinets at higher levels or in closets off-site (or even better—in an unused room). This will help make sure your counters don’t get crowded with food prep tools while giving more room for dirty dishes!

Bedroom essentials

Let’s face it: your bedroom is where you spend most of your time at home. It makes sense to put as much thought into it as possible. Start with a good mattress and make sure its frame is strong enough to support it well. You’ll also need a wardrobe for storing clothes, plus a bedside table for reading or doing other activities in bed at night. A lamp will help you function at night, especially if the power goes out during storms (you never know!). And don’t forget about storage—a waste bin and headboard are essential for keeping your room neat and tidy. Add some window treatments for privacy when you want some quiet time away from others in the house, as well as bedside storage so that everything has its own space when it needs one!

Bathroom essentials

  • Toilet paper
  • Paper towels
  • Soap (bar and/or liquid)
  • Toothpaste, toothbrush, and floss
  • Shampoo and conditioner (or other hair products)

Dining room essentials

You’re likely to have quite a few dining room essentials, so we’ve broken them down by category.

  • Table and chairs: All the seating you need for guests.
  • Table linens: If it isn’t already covered in your rental agreement, be sure to ask your landlord if tablecloths are included (and if they aren’t, what sort of fee the landlord charges). If there is no mention of linens at all, don’t worry; they’re not expensive and can be bought at any home goods store.
  • Dishes: Pottery plates and cups make for easy cleanup; clear glassware is also widely available and looks lovely on display when not in use. When shopping for dishes, think about how many people you’ll be serving often—if it’s just yourself or one other person most days then consider buying smaller sets rather than giant dinnerware sets that will go unused most weeks. You might also want some specialized pieces like casseroles or serving platters!

Living room essentials

When you’re furnishing the living room of your new home, there are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind. First and foremost, you’ll need to think about how much natural light comes into the room. As a general rule of thumb: The more windows there are in your living room, the lighter it will be during daytime hours. This means that if you’re buying furniture for an apartment with lots of windows, you can get away with more neutral colors on your walls and upholstery.

If at all possible (and if budget allows), invest in window treatments that block out some light so that it doesn’t feel too bright during nighttime hours when everyone’s sleeping or watching movies together on their laptops (or whatever). If this is not doable because cost won’t allow for it yet—or if you’ve already purchased furniture without taking this into account—then consider purchasing curtains or blinds designed specifically for bedrooms instead so they don’t take away from other areas like kitchens where natural light is important.

Next step: choosing a couch! This is another one where personal taste plays into things heavily but we recommend going simple here since it’s likely going to be used heavily throughout its lifetime (unlike side tables which may have shorter lifespans). Look through websites like https://www.couchsurfingusa/articles/15-amazingly-comfortable-modern-furniture to find cool styles that could work well in different rooms around the house; then research materials used such as leather vs suede etc., especially if planning long term investment value over short term aesthetics only decision.”

It is important to have these kinds of items when you move into your first home

When you move into your first home, it is important to have these kinds of items. You’ll need a broom and mop, dishwashing liquid and sponges, an ironing board and an iron (or just a good old-fashioned clothes hanger), trash bags, and a few cleaning products like window cleaner or all-purpose cleaner. These are the basics that will help you clean up after yourself so that your house looks good while you’re unpacking boxes. You should also get some personal care items like shampoo, conditioner, and everything else in between; toilet paper; hand soap; toothpaste, etc.; food (like cereal) for breakfast!
