~~It would be helpful to go to a local movers and ask for a supply list. They are usually arranged by room. Bathroom, Bedroom, Kitchen, etc,.. ~~The landlord should be upfront with you about what is included. Some places have to share a bathroom. ~~Shop the Goodwill and Salvation Army stores. The Dollar store is great for cheap essentials. i.e. cleaners, garbage bags, etc,... You don't need an entire set of say, dishes to start with. A couple of plates, bowls, spoons, forks and knives to start with, then add as you can scrounge up stuff. Keep an eye out for freebees in the local paper but be careful to not just be hauling off other people's junk. Politely, but firmly decline anything you are not interested in. Maybe have a house warming party. And don't forget a toilet brush and plunger and t-p!
Apartments come with a a stove,sink,toilet, possibly microwave. All the basics but you might have to buy every thing else. Or bring your old stove and things to put in the apartment. But some apartments or houses come furnished
They come with refrigerators, stoves, toilets, bath tubs (usually) and showers, sinks, etc. You need all the bathroom and kitchen supplies like silverware, pans to cook with, food, etc. All the bedroom supplies such as sheets, pillow cases, bed, chest of drawers, blankets, etc. You'll find out after you get there when you miss something and have to go out and buy. Be sure you have some extra money to buy whatever you forgot.
yes you would certainly need of says a couch maybe a desk with a chair, a kitchen table and chairs , the dresser maybe a night stands, TV, TV table. I've rented many apartments and they usually always come with the refrigerator. As far as a dishwasher that depends on how nice it is. Also a washer and dryer usually comes with it but in many it is optional because they might have a local laundry room on site.
everything; really...you will find every week and sometimes everyday something else that you need that you didn't think of before. so, look around the place you are living now, and literally anything you see you will need. And not all apts come with appliances, but some do.
Most apartments do come with a fridge. Some houses do not. Make a list of the things you'll need. Here are a few suggestions: for the kitchen - dishes, glasses, flat ware, towels, dish soap, hand soap, paper towels, small appliances (toaster, coffee maker, etc), pots and pans (at least one of each), a couple of things to bake with (casserole dish, etc) and if you like to bake, you'll need baking things, too, i.e. measuring cups and spoons and a good set of spoons (wooden and silicone spoon and spatula). For your bathroom - tp, towels, bath and hand soap, your personal toiletries, too. For your bedroom - sheets, pillows and pillow cases, blanket, etc. If the apartment is unfurnished, you'll need something to sit on - couch, chairs and also for the kitchen - table and chairs. A lamp for light at night. (I'm trying to remember what I got when I had my first apartment.) And don't forget food - hit your favorite grocery store and cruise the aisles. Get what you like to cook and eat. Make a list. Hope this helps. (I didn't mean to go on and on.)
You need to TURN ON YOUR UTILITIES. Of course you need to buy the basics - things for your kitchen, bathroom and living room. But above all else, you need to make sure you have electricity. And cable tv, if you want it. And internet, if you want it.
some apartments come with a refrigerator, washing machine almost all come with a stove and they have a shared washer and drier for clothes table and chairs for the dining room you will need a set of couches, table, tv for the living room kitchen- plates, bowls, pots, utensils, food and cooking ingredients bed, closets, desk, computer for bedroom for the bathroom toiletries like shampoo, soup, gel, shaver, towels etc once you move in you will slowly get a feel of everything you will need
oh wow I bawled my eyes out the first night I was in my empty apartment. All I wanted to do was take a shower and I didn't even have a shower curtain.. Anything practical and I say buy as you go along. DONT buy the cheapest stuff just because its cheap and easy.. this stuff doesn't last I know for a fact... Think about your daily routine and use that to help you and after that think about what you need for your favorite hobbies ie. a big desk with lots of book space.
Depends on how much of a furnished apartment you get... And you don't need to get an apartment... But you should when you're around 20-21, or when you finally have a stable income and can survive on your own.
A job and the keys to your place...the rest comes naturally..keep in contact with your parents...if all doesn't work well, they've probably turned your room into a gym, but you have a roof and a couch, Good Luck!
Most apartments do come with appliances. You will need something to sleep on (bed or sleeping bag, sheets, blankets); dishes, cups, knives and forks (paper plates and disposable cups and utensils will work until you can buy the real thing); shower curtains, bath towels, tissue paper, soap, toothpaste. If there are no appliances in your new apartment get yourself a microwave and a nice cooler. Fill the cooler with ice to keep food and drinks cold until you can get your major appliances. A dish rag or two.
I didn't take the time to read all the comments but when i moved in my home i had forgotten a can opener !!!!! That is kinda important and sucks when you didn'T think of it !!!! It's a small necessity.
I have had my own place for about 6 years, it takes time to aquire all needed items, ask family members and kijiji is a really good place for furniture and other necessary items!! :) Oh and dont forget can opener its super important but a much forgotten item. You need t.p, hand soap shampoo conditioner, cleaner as you will have to clean the place, blinds, table chairs ect hope that helps
