4 Electric-Powered Items You Need for Your First Apartment

Everything You Need for a Comfortable and Functional Home

When you’re moving into your first apartment, it can be tricky to know exactly what you need to have on hand for everyday life. We’ve got some tips for you! You can start your new household off right with these four electric-powered items.

1. Lightweight Vacuum

The easier and more convenient an appliance is to use, the more likely you are to use it. A lightweight vacuum cleaner is a great choice for your first apartment, as it takes up less space and is much easier to grab for a quick clean-up than a full-sized (and heavy!) upright vacuum. Look for a vacuum with a hard floor setting, so you can use it to clean your kitchen, too. 

2. Electric Kettle

Even if you’re not a tea drinker, an electric kettle is endlessly handy. Much more efficient than boiling water on the stovetop or in the microwave, an electric kettle means your ramen gets made faster, and it’s the easiest way to prep water for that French press or pour-over.

3. Power Strips

So many of the things we use to manage our lives and our work need to be plugged in, and you’ll soon find that power strips are one of the handiest things you can have around. Power strips with built-in surge protectors keep your devices safe in the case of a power surge, and a power strip with an on/off switch lets you save electricity by cutting all power to everything plugged into it when not in use.

4. Toaster Oven

You may think that having a full-sized oven means a countertop toaster oven isn’t necessary, but a toaster oven can do so much more than toast your morning bagel! Reheat leftovers, make a single baked potato, keep things warm while you’re preparing a meal, even broil fish for dinner, all without having to heat up the full-sized oven.
