Bedroom Essentials

Since the apartments at Envision Apartments are fully furnished, you won’t have to worry about purchasing any big furniture such as a bed. However, when it comes to basic bedroom essentials, you will need some sheets, a comforter, pillows, and some pillowcases. Also, you will not want to forget to bring plenty of hangers for your clothes. Once you get your bedroom all set up, you may want more items like a hamper or a full-length mirror, but for now, you’ll be sleeping comfortably with everything you need. 

Bathroom Essentials

The biggest bathroom essential that you will need for your new Akron apartment is toilet paper. You may also need some tissues, a trash can, and a bathmat. You’ll also want to ensure that you have a plunger in case of an emergency. You don’t want your toilet overflowing without a way to fix it. 

Bathroom essentials also include shampoo, conditioner, hand soap, body wash, toothbrush, toothpaste, and whatever else you might need for personal grooming. 

Kitchen Essentials

When it comes time to set up your kitchen, it might be best to start with the basic essentials and build up your collection over time. Make sure you have some plates, bowls, drinking glasses, a cutting board, silverware, pots, pans, oven mitts, spatulas, and a chef’s knife. You may also find that you need or want a few other things while you are shopping in the kitchen aisle, such as tongs, coffee mugs, a coffee maker, a toaster, and serving utensils and dishes.  

Living Room Essentials

Since your living room is already furnished at Envision Apartments, you won’t need to purchase a couch, which is one of the most expensive furnishings in your home. What you actually need for your living room is pretty minimal. You’ll probably want to bring a television with you and maybe a few pillows and blankets to have on the couch, but other than that, the rest won’t be incredibly essential. 

Cleaning Essentials

When you start to make a list of cleaning essentials, it’s best to go room-by-room. Consider what items you’ll need for your living room, kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom. You’ll probably want a vacuum, broom, mop, sponges, an all-purpose cleaner, a toilet brush, laundry detergent, and some dish detergent among a few other items. As you spend time in your Akron apartment, you’ll be able to make better decisions about what cleaning supplies you prefer. 

Decor Essentials

Okay, so maybe we are stretching the exact definition of the word “essential” when we discuss decor essentials. But when you move into a new apartment, one of the most fun parts is decorating with pictures of family, friends, and other items that show off your personal style. 

What we consider to be decor essentials are pictures of loved ones, some artwork, candles, throw pillows, and a small toolbox so that you can hang your decor items wherever you’d like. While you may not necessarily need these items to be able to live in your apartment, they are what makes it your apartment. They are what make it feel like home. So, yes, we are putting decor in the essential category.
