    Read through this helpful first apartment checklist before you browse, then prepare to fall in love with your new place.

    Purchase Major Pieces First
    When you're moving into an apartment, space is at a premium. You'll want to maximize your layout with space-saving furniture.

    Take measurements to figure out which bedroom sets will fit in your new place. Usually, a twin or a twin XL bed set is the best choice. Then, choose a small couch for an apartment. Apartment-sized couches typically run from 68" to 80" long.

    Once you've picked out a couch and a bed, you'll want to pick up any small appliances you use regularly, like a coffee maker or blender. Some starter apartments don't have full kitchens. If that's the case for you, a toaster oven, air fryer or multi-cooker might come in handy.

    Make It Feel Like Home
    After you sort out your furniture and appliances, you'll want to add some personality to your new space. Try decorating with textiles like comforter sets, throw pillows, towels and bath mats to incorporate different colors, prints and textures.

    Studio Apartment Solutions
    Are you moving into a studio apartment? These all-in-one spaces require a little extra creativity.

    Furniture for studio apartments work best when it's multi-functional. A table can double-time as a desk, while a stool can work as a side table or an extra seat. Also, try putting up a screen to shield your bed from the rest of the room. This trick will give your sleeping area a cozier feel.
