Your First Apartment Checklist For Westfield

You toured the best place with the perfect floor plan for your first apartment. Now, you signed the lease, packed your bags, and you’re ready to move. However, knowing what to bring with you can be hard. What items should make the list for your first apartment checklist for Westfield?

Here’s a short list of the basics that you’ll want to move in. You might be able to take some of these essential items from your current home, but other bigger items might take a trip to IKEA or Westfield’s local furniture outlet. Online stores like Ebay are good places to find things at, too. We’ll also show you a quick list of extra items that can make your first year easier.

Westfield apartment bedroom 

Westfield First Apartment Checklist: The Bedroom

These necessary household items work well for a one-bedroom apartment, as you need a place to put your bed and store your clothes. If you have a bigger apartment, these things also can go in a guest room.

  • Bedframe

  • Armoire or dresser

Westfield apartment living room

Westfield First Apartment Checklist: The Living Room

The living room is the space where you’ll spend a good amount of your time. It’s also the room where you’ll have friends and family sit in (although all events wind up in the kitchen).


  • Sofa or a few cozy chairs

  • Additional seating

  • Coffee table

  • TV stand or entertainment center

  • TV, stereo, or other electronics

Also nice:

Westfield apartment kitchen area

Westfield First Apartment Checklist: The Kitchen/Dining Area

The kitchen is easy for a new renter because most of your large essentials -- like the stove, refrigerator, and dishwasher -- are already in your apartment. You only really need a place to eat in the dining area, but be sure it seats at least four people. Even if you live by yourself, it’s good to eat at the table with friends or family.


  • Dining room table and chairs (seats 4)

  • Silverware, plates, and glasses (4 place settings)

  • Coffee pot

  • Spices, including salt and pepper

  • Dish soap and scrub brush

  • plastic or glass storage containers

  • Corkscrew, apple corer, and other well-used gadgets

  • A knife set with stand

  • Measuring spoons and measuring cups

  • Food -- It’s always helpful to move in with food already in the fridge

Westfield apartment bathroom

Westfield First Apartment Checklist: The Bathroom

The bathroom is rather straightforward, as the bath tub, sinks, toilets, and mirrors are already there. If you have a guest bathroom, you only need toilet paper, soap, and a hand towel. There are only a few essentials needed for your main or master bath, which makes it pretty easy to fill.
