Moving from an apartment into a house is a big move. When opportune moments come, it’s an excellent idea to get a house. While not everyone has the funds to purchase a house, some still rent one for convenience sake.

Whether you’re buying or renting a full-sized house, you’ll make some adjustments and planning. One of the things that you need to take care of is the things that you’ll need to buy. However, you don’t want to buy everything all at once. Here are the things that you should prioritize.

Necessary Furniture

You may have been tempted to decorate your new house. However, it may not be the best idea. First, prioritize the key furniture that you’ll be using. IF you’re living in a furnished apartment, you’ll likely have nothing to bring to your new home.

So what are the basic furniture that you’ll be needing? First, you’ll need a place to sleep, a bed. Next, you’ll need a place to sit in, perhaps some chairs, if you have enough, a cosy sofa. Then, you’ll need a place to eat, some tables. And of course, appliances to cook food with. And last but not the least, Never put your furniture in front of radiator covers because it will damage your furniture.

If you’re coming from an unfurnished apartment, it’s quite likely you already own some of these. However, you may still want to buy new ones that match the house if you have enough funding. 

Therefore, if you’ve decided to purchase new pieces of furniture, you can check out reliable  providers, such as Dreamo Living and other similar options online. Make sure to partner with a provider with a good reputation and offer a warranty on their furniture. Read online reviews to see what other people have said about the furniture you’re considering. Lastly, compare prices from different stores before making a purchase.

Maintenance Tools 

Next up, you’ll want to get some useful tools that can help maintain your new home. Living in apartments means that you won’t need to bother yourself with maintaining it that much. It means there’s a good chance you don’t have any cleaning equipment with you when you move. But when you get yourself a full-size home, it’s either you do it yourself or get maintenance service. In the case that you’d want to save money, you’ll want to do it yourself, at least for the first few weeks or months. 

What are the tools that you’ll be needing? For instance, if you have a lawn, you’ll need to get some basic tools such as rakes, water hoses, and shovels. You may also want to get a lawnmower. Other things to invest include cleaning equipment, such as vacuum cleaners, brooms, and mops.

Repair Tools

It may not happen soon, but things will be bound to be broken. For this, you will need some basic knowledge of how to fix simple things, including loose nails and screws and leaky pipes. Of course, you’ll also need tools to fix them. Some of the basic things that you should own are pliers, spanners, screwdrivers, a hammer, and a hand knife or a saw.

If you can, try to invest in a complete toolbox, so you’ll have everything that you’ll ever need. You may also want to make a place, particularly in the garage or basement, to safely keep all of your tools.


The first thing you consider in buying a house is safety. However, not all houses are equipped with complete safety equipment. For instance, you may want to get yourself some carbon monoxide detectors, especially near the bedrooms. You may also want to get some fire extinguishers. If possible, buy one for the kitchen and one for each floor. It’s also nice to have some ladders on hand, especially if you have a multi-story home. 

It’s also important to check all of your equipment as soon as you step into your new home. Adjust any settings and check for hidden and extra keys. You may also want to buy new locks. Replace any broken safety equipment immediately. 

Get Some Lighting 

All houses will come with lighting. But oftentimes, you may need to get some extra lights to brighten up a room. There are also times that the pre-installed lights are not bright enough to illuminate the room. You may also want to consider energy-saving options, such as using natural lighting.
