Tips for First Homebuyers: New Home Essentials

With numerous home and land packages in Perth for first-time homebuyers, it usually doesn’t take long for a determined buyer to eventually find a deal or arrangement that suits his needs. When you’re finally moving into your first home, you’re likely to remember the big things like a bed or couch, but there are a lot of things that you might not remember right away. So what are the little-big things that you need to do when you arrive at the new place?


The kitchen is the heart of the home, and if you don’t pay attention to what’s in it, you might have to run to the store in the middle of cooking. To avoid culinary emergencies, make sure your kitchen has these: can and bottle opener, wooden spoon, spatula, tongs, oven mitt, and measuring cups/spoons.

Living Room

You’ll probably survive with a minimalist living room, but there are a few things you’ll want to have to make your living space more comfortable, including lamps, cabinets for storage, coasters, and wall décor.


Most people spend a third of their lives in bed, so this part of your house needs to be comfortable. Make sure your personal sanctuary is well-stocked with these commonly forgotten items: full-length mirror, hamper, lamp, and hangers.

Spare Key

It seems like it’ll never happen to you until it does—you lock yourself out of your home. As soon as you get your keys, make sure to have them duplicated, and hide a spare in an inconspicuous and secure location.
