by SA Homes, Posted on 07/03/2018



After all the house hunting, you have finally found your ideal apartment. Congratulations! We understand that the moving in is an exciting phase, but are you really ready to make the move? Top builders in Palakkad think otherwise. Many apartment buyers go astray when it comes to buying essentials for their new apartment.

Before you head to the store and go on a shopping spree for your new apartment, there are few things that must be kept in mind.  Firstly, setting a budget and secondly prioritizing your requirements. Setting a realistic budget not only helps you keep a tab on your paycheck but it also helps you realize what your new apartment really needs! Start by setting up your budget and then take hints from the lists that follow to get going.

Here’s a short sum up of things you must consider buying while moving into your new flat in Palakkad or elsewhere-

For the kitchen, you might have already considered buying a gas stove or other appliances that cook and heat up your food. The plates, bowls and other cutlery are all set to go but the little objects are what people often forget.

  • A good set of knives
  • Spatulas and tongs
  • Oven Mitts( If needed)
  • Measuring cups and spoons

For your bedrooms, you’ll need some bedspreads, blankets, curtains or blinds but that isn’t all. You will also need

  • Hangers to put your clothes up in the cupboard
  • A good night lamp
  • And a mirror

The living space is always top priority. The rugs, the cushions and the curtains must be on top of your list but don’t forget the few essentials at the bottom that can make your new house feel like home.

  • Coasters
  • Wall decor
  • Side table/lamp

Bathrooms always take a backseat. Your toiletries are ready but here’s a list of a few supplies that you require that may not have figured on your list.

  • Bath mat
  • Tissues
  • Cleaning brushes and plunger
  • Bath curtains, liners and rings(optional)

 In the general category, a few supplies often go unnoticed until the need arises and you’ve got to run to the store. To avoid the rush between your chores, grab hold of these-

  • Cleaning supplies such as rubber gloves, all-purpose surface cleaners etc
  • Tool sets come in real handy when it comes to shifting into a new place
  • Don’t forget your first-aid kit
  • Torch and batteries
  • And last but not the least duct tape!

You might want to add a few more things to the list. Go ahead, make your own list and get packing!
