New home or first apartment? Don’t forget these home essentials.
Whether you’re taking the step with your childhood sweetheart, finally moving out of your parents’ house, or planning to make the most out of living with your friends, a first house or apartment is an exciting time!
Every home is different, expressing the individuality and personality of the owner in its own way. However, there are a few staple items that every home, apartment, and condo should have. Whether you’re setting up your new space or revamping your current place, check out these must-have home essentials.
Real napkins: Make a house a home! Cloth napkins are softer on the face, less wasteful, and add a nice splash of color to your dining area.
All-natural cleaning products: At this point, there’s no reason why you should buy those toxic and harmful cleaning products over natural and earth friendly items. From dish soap to glass cleaner to laundry detergent, always opt for green products.
Clean sheets: You don’t need a huge selection of bed sheets, but have just enough to enjoy sleeping in your bed every night. Choose flannel sheets in the winter, and light, cotton bed covers for the summer season.
Landing strip: Every house has one – a dumping zone right by the front door. Clean up this area by placing a coat rack and small table near the door so that you can take off your coat, bring the mail in, and hang up your keys when you walk in.
A good vacuum: Cleaning is an essential in every house. A good vacuum means that your home is kept free from dust and dirty, and is always useful for every pet owner!
Fresh flowers: Bring in your favorite plant, flower, or – if you’re bad with both – a succulent! Plants bring in life and add instant beauty to any space.
