5 College Apartment Essentials to Make the Place Look and Feel Like Home

When you’re moving from a tiny dorm room to your first ever apartment, there are a million things on your mind. You want your place to be comfortable and feel like home. There is so much to consider, from the bedroom furniture to cleaning supplies and utensils that it’s easy to lose track. If you’re behind schedule and are worried that you might not have the essentials down yet, don’t worry because we’ve got you covered. We’ve narrowed it down to five college apartment essentials that will make your temporary dwelling feel just like home.

1. The Bed

Your apartment may already come with a bed, but if not, you’ll need to get your own. It’s probably your first time buying one so make sure you get every fixture you’ll need: a bed frame, box spring, mattress, and covers.

2. A Dresser

Having space for storage is extremely important, especially if you’re a hoarder. Your room may come with a built-in closet. On the off-chance that it doesn’t accommodate your needs, find the perfect dresser here to store away all your necessities.

3. Don’t Forget the Mirror

You’ll realize the need for a mirror when you’re all dressed and ready to go to class, but there’s no way to know how you look. You do want to make the best first impression – don’t you? Get a full-length mirror to take the best #ootd pictures. A mirror can also add much-needed brightness to your room and gives the illusion of space. So, your little college apartment room won’t look so little anymore.

4. A Desk and Chair

A desk and a comfortable, (preferably swivel) chair are must-haves for nights when you’re juggling so many deadlines that you can’t risk accidentally falling asleep.

5. Futon

You have to get a futon, because, believe it or not, you can get tired of lying in bed all day. Any extra space for you to kick back will make a huge difference. It will also be the perfect place to crash on for your friend who is studying with you all night. Now that you’ve got the essentials out of the way, you can start thinking about kitchen, bathroom and cleaning supplies to make your apartment a fully functional living space.
