Are you about to rent your first apartment in Washington? Moving out of
home for the first time is usually fun, exciting, and a little bit scary. If
you are feeling a little overwhelmed by the amount of stuff you need to live as
a grown up, try these tips for furnishing your new apartment. After buying new
furnishings, be sure to contact your insurance agent for advice on a suitable
renters’ insurance policy.
- Each apartment unit is different and some
come fully furnished, while others have no furnishings. Even fully
furnished units usually only offer the basics, and you probably want to
add your own things to make it comfortable.
- Consider shopping for a new bed that fits
in the bedroom easily. Leave room
for a dresser, nightstand and lamp. Of course, you need to pick up sheets,
blankets and a bedspread.
- Pick up an assortment of pots and pans
for cooking. You can often get pans, dishes and silverware reasonably
priced, with little wear, at garage sales. Consider asking relatives for
items they no longer want.
- Check out used furniture stores to find
great buys for couches, sofa tables, end tables and chairs for the living room.
Using common sense and taking the time to find bargains really pays off
when furnishing a new apartment. For those in Washington in need of renters’
coverage, call our office for affordable quotes on this type of coverage.
