List of the necessities for your new crib


Moving houses is always exciting, but can be overwhelming. After all, there are so many things you need to think about. From decoration to important furniture, there are certain things no home should have to do without. This is why it’s important to come up with a fixed list of necessities for your new home. You’ll be sure you haven’t missed anything and will get to rest easy knowing your home is going to be spectacular. Nothing will stop or delay you from living your best life in your new residence when you’ve got all the essentials figured out in advance.

Extra towels and sheets

No, one pair of each definitely isn’t enough. Make sure to bring at least two pairs of bedding sets, and as many towels as you can. Of course, you’ll need more pairs of sheets, too, but, for the beginning, using those two interchangeably can be enough. Beware, though, washing the same fabric often can cause it to lose its colour and quality.

Towels are needed for anything from showering to wiping off your hands. Then, you’ll need a separate towel for your face. You might also want to separate your kitchen and bathroom towels. These might be the two most important things to bring with you and invest in. You don’t have to go all out when you first move in, basic sheets and towels will do the trick.


Eating and cooking go hand in hand, but nothing can be done without the proper tools. You can’t do much if you can’t cook. This is why you should make sure your home has a few pots and pans to get you started, but also the adequate cutlery. You’ll be able to cook basic meals and stay full while you’re still moving. On a similar note, don’t forget about the plates, glasses, and cups. You shouldn’t miss your morning coffee just because your home is not fully equipped yet.

Even though you’ll put the essentials in the kitchen right away, think about how you can add to your collection. If you like to cook and are prone to experimenting in the kitchen, you should invest in high-quality frying pans, pots, knives, and slow cookers. By adding one component at a time, you’ll soon make a TV-worthy kitchen.

The TV antenna

No home can do without a proper TV antenna. You’re going to need a good signal and decent entertainment from day one in your new home. Depending on the layout of your home and building, it may be tricky to set up the antenna yourself. This is one reason why antenna installation in Sydney is so popular. That doesn’t mean that other places around the world don’t offer the same swift and professional services, just that Australians tend to be more aware that this isn’t a job for an amateur.

Your antenna can be set up the same day you call the company, and you won’t have to go without your TV even for one day. It’s also advisable to set everything up before you fully move in so that there’s less furniture that can get in the way and less worry for creating a mess.

Light bulbs

Whatever you do, don’t forget the lightbulbs. If you do, you’ll risk not being able to do anything past the sunset. A new home is usually not equipped with many lamps either, so you may consider equipping your house with them, too. As far as the bulbs are concerned, you may not want to opt for the traditional and conventional lightbulb.

LED lights may be a bit more expensive but think of it as an investment. They last much longer, so you’ll seldom have to replace them. Aside from that, they also waste a lot less energy, meaning you’ll be saving on electricity. Finally, the light they emit is much softer and more comfortable for the eyes. This will make your space look and feel homier before you’ve even settled in.


The things on this list may or may not have been somewhere in the back of your mind already. Now you’ve got them written down, though, so there’s no way you can forget them. Your new crib is bound to look and feel amazing when the right décor is in order. Then, excitement can take over and push stress out of the way so you can fully enjoy one of life’s best experiences.
