Some Necessities You Should Have for Your Apartment
Now that you finally found your apartment, it’s time to pick up a few things to add the final touch. There are many different things you could get to spice up your apartment, depending on what you like. When you first get into your apartment, it may be a little empty. This list below should send you into the right direction on what you should grab.
#1 – Mini-Fridge
Believe it or not a mini-fridge is a great addition to any apartment. Because of its size you have plenty of options of where to put it. A mini-fridge can be put in your room, your living area or elsewhere in your kitchen. You can store just drinks in here to free up room for food in your regular fridge or vice versa.
#2 – Plants
Having some plants around the apartment is a nice addition. Setting up some plants around your rooms, small or large, brings a nice breath of fresh air to the room. But, if you aren’t the type to keep up with plant maintenance, you should look into getting plants that only need to be watered every few weeks. Another option is to get fake plants, they’re low maintenance and still get the job done.
#3 – Books
Having some nice looking books around your apartment adds a more cozy feeling, no matter your interest in literature. Put them onto the bookshelf and make them look nice and neat. Another option with books is to have them lying around your place. This is especially good If you or guests just want to flip through the pages, or even doing some serious reading.
#4 – Light
Many apartments tend to lack the lighting amenities that they need. Walking around a dimly lit room while trying to find your way may not be exactly suitable for anyone. Adding some extra light fixtures and lamps will easily fix that problem. Adding a few big lamps to your largest room is a good place to start, and then work your way from there.
#5 – Silverware and Tableware
Your new apartment isn’t going to come equipped with silverware or tableware, so you’re going to need to make that investment yourself. In addition, picking up a few extra basics such as a wooden cutting board and a sharp knife is important. Luckily, if you’re looking at the Surrey Square Apartments, there are many nearby stores in which you can easily get them.
#6 – Extension Cords
There isn’t always going to be enough outlets to go around. Having to constantly unplug and plug your electronics and appliances back in will get pretty tedious. Getting a few extension cords allows you to avoid this problem. It also fixes any awkward outlet locations so you can plug your things in and place them virtually anywhere.
