45 Must-Haves For Your New Apartment

45 Must-Haves For Your New Apartment

  |     |   Uncategorized

You’ve done the research, taken the virtual and on-site tours, explored the neighborhood, checked out the amenities, and signed the lease. Now it’s time to pack what you have and buy what you need to furnish your new luxury apartment. 


But what exactly do you need to make an unfurnished apartment feel like home? Check out this handy guide to ensure you have everything you need to furnish your new space.  


For The Bedrooms 

An unfurnished apartment is like a blank canvas. It’s a neutral and open space just waiting for you to make it your own. Here are a few basics you’ll need to create a comfortable bedroom, plus a few extra nice-to-haves to complete the space: 


  • A bed frame, box spring, comfortable mattress, and mattress topper  

  • Sheets, pillows, and blankets 

  • Hangers for the closet 

  • A dresser and nightstands 

  • Hooks for hanging things  

  • Bookshelves/wall shelves 

  • A trash can 

  • Art/decor to personalize your space 


For The Bathrooms 

Your bathroom will come equipped with traditional bathroom features (shower, tub, sink, toilet) but you’ll have free reign to create a peaceful and convenient place to unwind from a busy day. Here’s what you’ll need to complete your bathroom: 


  • Toiletries 

  • Toilet paper 

  • Bathroom cleaning supplies 

  • Towels 

  • Bath mats 

  • Shower curtains 

  • Storage baskets/bins 

  • Artwork/ finishes to personalize the space  


For The Kitchen 

If you are sharing a kitchen with roommates, it’s a good idea to get together before move-in day to discuss who is bringing what for the kitchen. It doesn’t make sense for everyone to bring their toaster or their microwaves, and having this conversation beforehand will help reduce a cluttered kitchen. If you’re not sharing the space with other people, you get to furnish and decorate your kitchen however you want. In many unfurnished high-rises like NMS 1759 Beloit, the kitchen will come with a refrigerator, stove, cabinets, drawers, and a dishwasher. You’ll need to bring: 


  • Pots and pans 

  • Silverware 

  • Tupperware  

  • Serving dishes/accessories 

  • Cups and plates 

  • Kitchen cleaning supplies 

  • Food and spices 

  • Gadgets like toasters, blenders, microwaves, coffee pots, air fryers, etc 

  • Dining tables and chairs 

  • Oven gloves, dish rags, and drying towels 


Sometimes it takes cooking a few dishes in your new kitchen to realize what you’re missing and what else you need.  



For The Living Room 

The living room will easily be the most-used space in your new apartment, so you want to make sure it’s comfortable and reflects your personal style. Before you move in, take measurements of the living room so you don’t go buying an expensive new couch that won’t fit. If you like to entertain, your living room should reflect that by having multiple seating options and room for people to move around. Invest in multi-purpose furniture (like a sofa that pulls out into a bed or an ottoman that can store blankets) to save space in your living room. To complete your living room you’ll need: 


  • Couches and chairs (items that double as storage space is a bonus!) 

  • End tables and coffee tables 

  • Throw rugs 

  • House plants and home decor finishes 

  • A TV 

  • An entertainment center/wall shelves 


These things will help create the foundation for your living room, and as you live, relax and entertain in it you will discover what other things you need to make it a comfortable lounge space.  


If you work from home and want to create a cozy and efficient workspace, you’ll need: 


  • A desk 

  • A comfortable chair 

  • Chargers 

  • A printer 

  • Your computer 

  • Storage bins for office supplies 

  • Wifi router 

  • A bookshelf 


For The Outside Space 


If your apartment has a patio or balcony, you have a few options for decorating. You could: 


  • Put a simple table and chair outside for reading and enjoying coffee 

  • Add padded lounge furniture and create an outdoor living space  

  • Add houseplants, an outdoor rug, and string lights 

  • Add a hanging chair or set up a hammock 

  • Set up weights or a yoga mat so you can workout with a view 


The furniture and decor you choose for your patio or balcony will depend on how you intend to use the space.
