About Us

Hi there,

My name is Nick and I run firstapartmentchecklist.com. Our website is dedicated to helping people that are moving into their first apartment.

When I moved into my first apartment a couple of years ago, I needed to buy a lot of new stuff. The problem I experienced back then (and I’m sure a lot of people are still experiencing right now) was that I didn’t know what stuff I needed. Of course I knew the big things: a bed, a sofa, a dinner table, and a TV. But what did I need for the kitchen? What kinds of pots, pans and cutlery? What kind of cleaning materials did I need? Was I sure I wasn’t forgetting any essential items? I had no idea.

So I thought to myself that it would be much easier if I had a document that listed every essential item you would need for a first apartment. That’s why we created the first apartment checklist.

Next to our main checklist, we also feature a lot of tips on decorating, moving, renting and other first apartment related stuff.
