Here is a simple list of must-haves for your first home. Change up the list based on your needs, but these are some necessary (and beautiful) items to start your place off! There are multiple items on this list that I use and love on a day-to-day basis.
This post is all about kitchen essentials for first apartment that every girl should know.
Kitchen Essentials For First Apartment
Luxury: American Garden
This is the most beautiful silverware you will ever see. It is on the pricey side, but they last and look stunning. These are the ones I own, and they still look as beautiful as the day I bought them. There is something very underrated about having silverware that makes you smile.
Alternative: Retro Royal Gold Stainless
These are also gorgeous. They come with less in the set but cost far less too. Plus, for your first place, you might not need much silverware.
2. Cute Dishware
Luxury: Bistro Tile Bread Plates, Set of 4
Anthropology has some of the cutest dishware around. It makes eating more fun when your plate is beautiful. They have a decent size assortment of cute items, so find the best one that fits your aesthetic!
Alternative: Earthenware Sweet As A Bee Dinnerware Set
Unlike the one from Anthropologie, this is a complete set. If you want to be able to pick up one thing with all of your kitchen cabinet essentials, then this is a good choice. If you like to pick out individual pieces, choose something from Anthropologie!
3. Cute Glasses
Luxury: Sarah Gordon Juice Glass
These glasses are stunning and would make anything your drink out of them fun. The little hummingbird is adorable, and the glasses look handpainted. You do have to handwash these, which might be a downside if you like putting everything in the dishwasher.
Alternative: Jupiter Clear Highball Glass
These are so pretty and beachy! They’re coastal, elegant, and fun all in one. I own these and am surprised at how high quality they feel for the price. They are heavy, thick, and stunning. I put mine in the dishwasher, and they have stood quite nicely there.
4. Coffee Pot
Luxury: Cuisinart Perfectemp
Simple, beautiful, and high quality. This is a lovely coffee pot for your first apartment.
Alternative: Mr. Coffee
This is the best coffee pot ever. It seems to last for a very long time, makes constantly great coffee, and is inexpensive. This is the most underrated coffee pot out there.
5. Cutting Board
Luxury: Large Round White Marble And Wood Paddle Cutting Board
Marble on a cutting board? Check. This marble cutting board is so aesthetically pleasing, you might not want to actually use it!
Alternative: TeakHaus Edge Grain Wood Reversible Cutting Board
This is the most incredible cutting board I have used. It’s stunning, luxurious, and fairly priced for the quality!
Luxury: Golden Rabbit 3-piece Enamelware Mixing Bowl Set
These are beautiful are come with lids!
Alternative: Park Designs Villager Mixing Bowls Set – Cream
The adorable illustrations will make it so fun to cook with!
Luxury: Quinn Dish Towels, Set of 3
These dishtowels look like they were created in Hawaii. They are stunning, colorful, and will add a sophisticated but fun bit of color to your kitchen.
Alternative: Cotton Hello Summer Dishtowel Set
These are unbelievably cute and would be perfect for your beachy apartment! They’re brightly colored and have a bit of a vintage vibe.
8. Measuring Spoons

These are so cute and feel so luxurious!
