Furniture You Need When Moving Out of Your Parent’s House

Furniture You Need When Moving Out of Your Parent’s House
  • Opening Intro -

    Maybe you're headed to college, or maybe you're moving out for work, love, or travel.

    Whatever your reasons for leaving your parents' house, it's important to be properly prepared.


This includes having what you need when it comes to a few select pieces of furniture that are essential for comfortable living in your new place.


College students aren’t the only people who can benefit from having a desk around. They’re also becoming increasingly important for office workers with WFH duties, or anyone really who needs a decent workspace.

Even if you don’t have these needs just yet, a good, sturdy desk can be an investment for the future, especially if you take the time to buy something ergonomic. Make sure that you don’t forget a proper chair to go with the desk, either.


If you have a tight budget, dressers are something that you can cut corners on, but you’ll still want them in some form in order to store your clothes.

Even if they’re just temporary bins that you stick in the corner of your bedroom, they’ll help you keep your clothing clean and organized.

They can also double as extra storage spaces for other essentials or knick-knacks in a pinch, and you can use their flat tops as either functional or decorative platforms.


A mattress is a must-have for any new apartment, especially if you’re going into one that isn’t already furnished. You can make do without other parts of a bed, including a bed frame, but you’ll be sleeping on the cold, hard floor without a mattress and that’s not something you can or should do long term.

The good news is that it’s easier than you might think to buy one. If you go through a mattress supplier online, someone like Beautyrest Mattresses, you can have it shipped directly to your door, avoiding the need for a truck or a friend to help you haul it away. Some suppliers even offer professional set-up services to get it all ready in your bedroom.

You may be considering buying a used mattress, and this is one of the items that is better to get new rather than used. Used mattresses can have all kinds of unseen damage, decay, or problems that you won’t know about until it’s too late.

Not to mention, they’re likely either already broken down or very close to being broken down, meaning the night’s sleep they could provide will be horrible quality.

Coffee Table

A good coffee table can be a multipurpose item in your home. If it’s portable, for example, it can also serve as a bedside table or dining room table. If it’s flat, it can double as a desk while you’re saving up for something fancier.

You can even use it as an organizational tool if you haven’t purchased any shelves or storage items yet. It’ll look nicer than stacking things on the floor, and it’ll be better for your back, too.

These are just a few pieces of furniture that you’ll need for your first home or apartment away from your parents. There are others that you might consider as well, but these are some of the most essential.

Once you’ve stocked up on the basics, you can start expanding your interior decor with additional items.
