Are you a first-time homebuyer? Congratulations! You’re about to embark on an exciting and never-ending journey of owning your home. 

While the excitement of this big purchase can take a lot of attention, you’ll need quite a few items to set up your new home and make it feel safe and comfortable. Of course, the specifics vary based on personal preferences, the type of home, and whether it's furnished or unfurnished. But to help you get started, our moving experts have compiled a general list of new house essentials.

Things to Buy for a New House

Remember that this house essentials list is a guide; your specific needs may vary! We recommend prioritizing must-haves items first and gradually adding items as your budget and timeline allow.

Appliances

Your new home might already have the appliances you need, but here are the ones most people find necessary. 

Kitchen Essentials

Having the basics in your kitchen helps it feel like home and keeps you from relying solely on takeout. 

Bathroom Essentials

Forgetting bathroom necessities can make for an uncomfortable first night! 

Cleaning Supplies

Now that you’ve moved into your new spot get the necessary tools to keep your home sparkling and sanitary. 

Home Maintenance Tools

This is a mandatory addition to your house essentials list. Maintenance tools keep your home in working order if something goes wrong (which it inevitably does!) 

Home Security

Not only do you want to protect your new home, but these security measures can potentially help you lower your home insurance. 

Storage Solutions

Chances are you need some help getting your belongings settled in. Getting storage solutions in advance brings you one step closer to creating an organizational system for your home. 

Outdoor Items

If your new home has a lawn, you’ll want the tools to take care of it. 

To-Dos Before You Move In

Set a reminder in your calendar to take care of these amid the hustle and bustle of moving.

We know it’s a lot to track! Need a comprehensive moving checklist? We made one just for you!

Take Time to Celebrate This New Beginning

As you’re settling into your new home, don’t forget to take a moment to celebrate this new beginning. After all, you deserve it!
