Here Are The Top Things You Need For Your First Apartment

So, you’ve finally moved into your first apartment! That is a huge milestone in life and if you are wondering what are the things you need for your first apartment, we got you covered with all the essentials! 

  1. Living Room 

The living room is where you will spend time watching TV or perhaps when you have your loved ones over.  

Coffee table 

You definitely need some sort of table in your living room to place your mugs or if you prefer to eat in front of the TV rather than the dining room. Consider coffee tables or Ottomans if you want to save space because it can be used as a table or to prop your feet up. 

But if you think you’ll often have guests over or host parties, it’s best to get a coffee table for convenience sake.


We would suggest getting a sleeper sofa so that your guests are able to crash your place. Besides, you can also take your afternoon naps on these types of sofas too! If your apartment isn’t that spacious, opt for loveseats instead of the usual sectional sofas. 

TV Stands 

Planning to have a TV in your living room? You definitely need a place to put it up! Opt for TV stands so that you  can also place other items in the drawers or cabinets that come along with it. 

  1. Bedroom

The bedroom is where you’ll spend most of your time in your apartment! You’ll want to make sure it is as comfortable as possible.

If you’re too lazy to think about styling, you can get matching bedroom sets so you won’t have to come up with various styles or designs. 


Make sure you choose the right mattress because you’ll spend most of the hours on the bed! If you’re under a budget, then you don’t really have to get a bed frame. 

However, if you can, there are plenty of bedframes available including the ones with drawers - perfect for extra storage space. Otherwise, you can get standalone drawers too. 

Dressing Table

Not forgetting your dressing table too! Try getting mirrored dressers, but if you think your bathroom mirror is sufficient, then you can skip owning one.  

  1. Kitchen or Dining Room

The things you need for your first apartment when it comes to the kitchen depends on how spacious it is! For instance, you can consider getting a dedicated dining table just for eating and a separate one to place your utensils or cooking ware. Otherwise, you can opt for just one table alone for everything. 

If you can’t afford a full set of dishware and tableware, you can simply just use paper cups and plates (so you can even skip washing the dishes!). Of course, if you plan to cook often, get the right pots and pans too! 

Don’t forget tupperwares and any form of food storage containers so you can store leftover food. 

  1. Bathroom

In the bathroom, the things you need for your first apartment is of course your toothbrush, toothpaste, and so on. Consider a good rug or bathmat so that you wouldn’t wet the entire place when you just moved in! 

You can install your own racks as well to place your soap and shampoo, or if you want to save cost, simply just place them on the floor.
