View our guide to make your first apartment the perfect place to call home. 

Kitchen Basics

When moving into your new home, there is nothing better than getting to decide on what meals you are going to cook. You will want to be sure that you have the kitchen basics like pots and pans, silverware, a dish set, and cooking utensils so you can make full use of your kitchen right away. Once you have gathered the base supplies, you will be able to start crafting gourmet meals, and you can then make a note of the other tools and utensils you will need. By having your kitchen basics when you move in, you will make your apartment feel more like home.

Organization Products

Living in an apartment, you may think that storage will be scarce, but with our spacious closets and additional storage areas, you will be able to store away your things easily. Once you have decided where all of your belongings will go, you can get some organizational products to find everything easily. The Container Store has a variety of organization options to help make every inch of your home stress-free. 


Once you have unpacked and gathered your basics, you can add décor pieces that reflect your style. With photos of friends and family, unique artwork, and other items like rugs and throw pillows, you will be able to turn your apartment into a home. These pieces will set the tone for your new apartment, and you can always add or rotate things as you get more items. Your décor items will provide a sense of comfort and create a welcoming space for you to come home.

With these first apartment essentials, you can transform your space at our Channelside apartments. Come home to The Fitzgerald Channelside and contact us to schedule your visit today!
