What Furniture Do I Need When Renting an Apartment

Renting a new apartment is fun and exciting, but if you’ve never lived in an apartment before, it can be kind of overwhelming to walk in the first day to that big empty space. What in the world are you going to fill it up with? Here’s a breakdown of the basic furniture you will need when renting an apartment. 

Bed(s) - Of course you’re going to need someplace to sleep. You will need one bed for every bedroom that has an occupant, and if you have an extra room and plan for guests it’s good to have a guest bed as well. 

Nightstand(s) + Dresser(s) - You can’t go without storage, so of course you’re going to need some nightstands and dressers for each occupied room as well. Nightstands are great for holding all your little items as well as a lamp to make your bedroom cozier. A dresser will give you extra room in the closet and a little extra storage space. 

Sofa - Your apartment is your sanctuary. It's where you come to relax and unwind after a long day. A nice comfy sofa is a must-have in any apartment. Sofas are great for lounging, hanging with friends or even an overnight guest if you don’t have a spare bedroom. 

Coffee Table - No living room is complete without a coffee table. It’s the perfect place to set up the snack spread for the big game, keep your remotes, controllers and other devices. It’s also a sweet spot for your cup of coffee or glass of wine. 

TV + Entertainment System - Most of us like to unwind on nights and weekends with a little TV. Your apartment won’t feel complete without some sort of entertainment system. Maybe you like to watch sports, play video games, or maybe you love a movie night. Whatever your guilty pleasure is a TV is essential for your new home. 

Table and Chairs - A table is truly essential in any home, and in an apartment, it can act as a multipurpose space. A table is a place to eat, do school work, do work, do projects and gather with friends and family. You don’t want to be standing over your kitchen counter with your dinner each night, so make sure you have a table and chairs. 

All these furnishings are starting to add up, how much is this going to cost? Where do you even start buying them? If you’re asking these questions, a furnished apartment may be right for you. At East Bay Apartment Homes we have fully furnished units with top of the line furnishings set and ready to go as soon as you move in. Give us a call today to see if a furnished apartment is right for you!

Should I Rent a Studio, One or Two Bedroom Apartment?

Renting an apartment comes with a lot of decisions! One of the first decisions you will need to make is to decide what size apartment you want. There are endless floor plans and styles of apartments ranging in size and style. Some of the most common rental sizes are studio, one and two bedrooms. You will have to decide which one is right for you and your needs. This decision will most likely be based on a combination of your needs and your budget.

Studio Apartments

Studio apartment floor plans are an open concept with a shared living and sleeping space. Studios are great for couples or those living alone who want more living space and a cozier feel. Living in a studio apartment means less space to clean, less furniture to buy and typically less rent each month. Studio apartments can be made to feel ultra cozy and you’ll get the most out of your space.

One Bedroom Apartments

One bedroom apartments are great for those who want a little more privacy and a separate sleeping space. Create a cozy bedroom while keeping your living room open for entertaining, studying, working or lounging. Having a separate bedroom allows you to create a designated space where you can rest at the end of a long day. Having guests over won’t be a problem in a one bedroom because your large living room will be open for an air mattress or pull out couch.

Two Bedroom Apartment

Two bedroom apartments are great for roommates, families or those who have frequent guests. For couples or those who live alone, a second bedroom can open up a host of possibilities. From a guest bedroom to a home office, playroom or craft room the options are endless when you give yourself that extra square footage. Having a two bedroom apartment also means a little more storage space for your belongings.
