Welcome to your 20s! This age is a perfect in-between age to get to know who you are and who you want to be, so why not celebrate with style? Yes, we are still in the middle of a pandemic, but who says you can’t treat yourself to a safe celebration? 

Here is a list of amazing ideas for your 20th birthday to help you celebrate the beginning of your 20’s, no matter how strict your quarantine is.

In this post:

20th Birthday Suit Ideas

1. Loungewear

POPYOUNG Women's Summer Casual T-Shirt Dresses Beach Dress Medium, Polka Dot Navy Blue

The most important part of your birthday is definitely how you look. Loungewear is trendy at the moment, so try for something basic that also makes a statement. T-shirt dresses are really versatile and easy to pair with various accessories. 


They can also be worn year-round if you wear them with a cute pair of leggings or jeans in the winter. This is great for a quarantine birthday but also for a comfortable birthday suit to party in. I mostly love loungewear for all the versatile options!

BUY IN AMAZON

2. Headband or Crown

That is an important 20th birthday idea question and distinction. Depending on your celebration, a headband can give off a more relaxed vibe, and a crown can be a classic and fancy accessory. I suggest the crown for an elegant or formal party and the headband for any other situation. 

The headband is an example of the level of sparkle it will need to highlight your big day. Take it as inspiration as you search for the level of glimmer that works for you.

3. Birthday Sash

Gold Glitter Birthday Sash Birthday

Birthday sashes are a must when you are out in the town. They are a city party staple, and there are so many ways to personalize them!

I usually go for the ones without the birth year, but sashes are great to highlight milestone birthdays too. 

There are tons of places where it can be personalized or if you want to make your sash memorable, have your family and friends decorate it for you.

My family decorated mine a couple of birthdays ago and I later wore it when out with my friends. Remember, it is your day to be extra, so your sash must stand out!

20th Birthday Party Accessories

4. Monochromatic Décor

Rose Gold Pink Birthday Party Decoration

If there is no overall theme for your 20th birthday celebration, try this monochromatic trend.

If you love millennial pink, then you would love this setup with a huge balloon garland. The rest of the setup is either gold or pink and ties the rest of the decorations together. 

The whole set should not be too expensive to put together with purchases from large party stores.

This is honestly the best with the little details as well, like matching presents. Try this with your favorite color!

BUY IN AMAZON

5. Balloons

Balloon Arch Garland Kit Rose Gold

Balloons are amazingly simple decoration pieces and can be the focus of your event.

Try a different kind of balloon from the norm, such as balloons filled with confetti, dipped in glitter, or adorned with LED lights inside them. You can also give balloons filled with money as a fun birthday gift. 

If you want to have some nostalgia from the first 20 years of your life at your birthday, tape pictures at the ends of balloon strings so that they can roam throughout the party.

You could even make it an activity. Balloons are so versatile, there’s no way to go wrong!

BUY IN AMAZON

6. Streamers

Rose Gold Hanging Swirl Decorations Plastic Streamers

Streamers are another classic decoration that is a must-have for any birthday celebration. You can’t go wrong when choosing a color matching your theme or décor. Buy many to create a backdrop or a few to wrap some furniture. 

If there is a lot left over, you can use these for other decorating or crafting projects in the future. This would be great to match with a monochromatic decor and they are really cheap to buy lots of.

BUY IN AMAZON

7. Fringe Curtains

Rose Gold Foil Fringe Curtains

Instead of streamers, maybe fringes are more your style. Matching this with the décor and theme of your birthday will tie everything together. Use this for your doorway, as a backdrop, or even for decorating furniture. 

I have seen various fringe curtains in my life, from tv show-related ones to beaded curtains. These are generally not expensive so check out some crystal curtains for a year-round fringe!

BUY IN AMAZON

8. Fairy Vines

Fake Vines for Room Decor

Or maybe fairy vines are what you are looking for. These lights have leaves to bring a feeling of nature into your party, but there are other styles without leaves that give a more simplistic look. 

These are great because they can be for a single event or a permanent decoration for your room. There are also some with flowers that are adorable in any room.

BUY IN AMAZON

9. Trendy Cake

Surprise Cake - Musical Popping Cake Stand

Tsunami cakes. Glaze cakes. Drip cakes. Hidden compartment cakes. There are so many cake trends to choose from that your perfect cake is just a bake away. 

They might be pricey, so research in your local area before settling on one. I had a cake covered in edible glitter and flowers.

It was so pretty, I didn’t want to eat it! If you have not tried any of the trendy ones, try one for your special day.

BUY IN AMAZON

10. Cake Topper

PALASASA Happy Birthday Cake Toppers Glod glitter letters

Personalization is key, so instead of getting a regular cake topper, get one just for yourself! The prices of these definitely vary on how personal it is, but there are many DIYs. You can add cute edible toppers or a picture of yourself. 

If you choose a generic one with your name, definitely take the opportunity to use it on anything that can hold the cake topper. No judgments here!

Benchmark Bouquets Flowering Fields

For my lovely Earth signs, you may appreciate more of the outside in your event if your gathering is not already in a park. Treat yourself with a bouquet of flowers in various designs and colors. 

As an Earth sign myself, for one birthday, I asked my family and friends to send me my favorite flowers instead of a gift. The flowers all lasted at least a whole week. Get artificial ones if you want them to last forever!

BUY IN AMAZON

15. Confetti

3000 Pieces Happy Birthday Confetti

You would think confetti is a simple item to have, but there are so many options to relate to your theme. There are confetti poppers, ones with “Happy Birthday” foils, others with glitter, specific ones that are best for falling slowly… there are just so many options, and you can’t go wrong with any of them! 

Even the ones that don’t match the décor will be fun for everyone, and an amazing addition to your birthday. And they are pretty inexpensive, so definitely get some!

Oameusa Dried Flowers

Purely for aesthetic reasons, edible flowers in ice will be a cute way to commemorate the evening. There are also plastic flowers or plastic ice cubes with flowers already in them. 

You can also make ice cubes with little fruit or some herbs. I have done this for summer barbeques but they are great for summer or spring events. Definitely do this if your birthday is a nature theme!

BUY IN AMAZON

18. Charcuterie

Smirly Cheese Board and Knife Set

Charcuterie boards seem to be a love it or hate it trend, but they are almost always a hit at birthday parties. It all depends on what you put on one, especially if you are not into deli meats and crackers. 

There are some that seem like a taco bar, others that have been more sweet-focused, with s’mores and chocolate-only spreads. I made various ones with fruits and everyone enjoyed it. Try one with your favorite snack foods!

BUY IN AMAZON

19. 20th Birthday Collage

Memory Board Photo Collage Kit

Collages are perfect 20th birthday ideas because they can be created in various ways. You can either buy one or create your own. You can cut out the numbers of your age on a poster board or cardboard and paste pictures there, or you can simply collage photos together. 

This is an opportunity to be creative and reflect on memories with loved ones. This can also be a family bonding activity if you haven’t seen them in a while.

BUY IN AMAZON

20th Birthday Activities

20. Have a Paint & Sip Party

These kinds of parties have been on the rise over the past few years and can be a great idea for your 20th birthday. This party idea has you and some friends get together, drink wine and paint together. 

You could follow some sort of tutorial, or you could just paint what you want. So if you are an artsy, creative kind of person, this may be the perfect, chill way to celebrate your birthday. You can post on social media in memory of the day. 

Make it happen: 

21.. Have a Picnic

If you are more into photo opportunities, have a birthday outdoors. Forget all of the extra decorations, and grab a picnic blanket and some easy-to-eat foods.

Get to the beach, a park or even the woods and spend the day surrounded by nature. 

All of the summer birthdays in my family are done outside and we try to go somewhere farther than the backyard.

If you have been mostly isolated recently, you will feel liberated.

picnic

Make it happen:

22. Board Game/Trivia Night

Clue Game

Board game and trivia nights are synonymous with family time, but it can also be an amazing birthday activity. 

Whether over Zoom or in person, there are so many games that can be played, and there are even games and websites that were designed to be played over Zoom. My family and I have made this a monthly event that we use to catch up.

BUY IN AMAZON

23. Backyard Movie

Having a movie night is a classic party gathering, only made better with a birthday celebration. With the many projector options, there are, it won’t be hard to gather many friends and watch various videos, movies, or clips together. 

Weather permitting, it will be one of your most memorable birthdays. Don’t forget to set up a food and snack table for enjoyable watching!

movie night

Make it happen: 

24. Series Binging

If you can’t have an in-person movie night, take it virtually and binge watch a short series or season of a series. If you don’t want to watch anything new, go through your favorite shows and only watch the best episodes. 

My siblings and I constantly watched shows together, but being separated made it difficult. For my brother’s birthday, we were able to watch his favorite movies and it was almost like nothing changed. Brainstorm some quick shows or movie trilogies and comment on them the entire time.

25. Zoom Party

Czech Games Codenames Multi, Standard

As mentioned before, Zoom can be used for various games and events. Opt for this if your friends have left the state or country, and try virtual group activities like charades. There are also some that have an online version, like Codenames. 

This has yet to fail for me and my friends, especially when we have a game ready to play. A zoom party is a time to get creative, so definitely ask for ideas and try them all!

BUY IN AMAZON

26. Photo Booth Props

Kissral Photo Booth Props

Photo booth props, such as exaggerated glasses or thought bubbles, are always a cute birthday idea. 

They have been used more in weddings lately, but there are so many to choose from now that you can personalize them for your birthday, or even create your own. These are not expensive to purchase, so there are many options. If you have a theme and can't find any to buy, make it an activity!

BUY IN AMAZON

27. Scrapbooking

STMT DIY Journaling Set

Like the collage activity, scrapbooking can be a fun solo or group event. This could even be made early to gift to the birthday person. Polaroids and mini photo printers would come in handy, but research before, for they can get pricey (but the go on sale often!). 

This can be done in two ways: you can either create your own journal from scratch and decorate it, or you can plan an event to scrapbook. The latter would be a two-part birthday celebration and all the better!

BUY IN AMAZON

20th Birthday Theme Ideas

28. Gaming Tournament

Razer Kraken Tournament Edition THX 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset

If you’re against making a personalized party, why not go for a specific theme? A gaming tournament will work in person or online and can be as official or laidback as you want it to be. 

I’m a horrible gamer, but my family still gets together to play the old-school games. If you are faced with bad gamers, invest in one that isn't hard and can be fun for every age. Gather your gaming friends for a true test of their abilities!

BUY IN AMAZON

29. Zodiac/Astrology

SANBOLI Space Themed Party Tablecloth

If you are more spiritual, you would love this zodiac and astrology theme. I love a coordinated astrology theme! Highlight your sign or constellation with a theme focused on what makes you the person you are. 

If you have a guest list, definitely try to incorporate everyone's sign in your decor or activity as well. My Cancers or Capricorns may even make individual cupcakes for everyone. How sweet!

BUY IN AMAZON

30. Ice Cream Party

Ice Cream Bar Decorations Kit Gold Glitter Banner

Flash back to your childhood parties with ice cream, cake and cookies.

Make this an overall theme with various ice cream decorations, or go scientific and make your own ice cream with crazy flavors.

Too much ice cream is never a bad thing and this theme is even better for summer birthdays!

BUY IN AMAZON

31. Breakfast Food

Machine for mini waffle maker

Have a breakfast food theme! We all know it is the most important meal of the day, so why not make it a 20th birthday event? This may be intriguing to the early birds or those who usually don’t have time for breakfast. 

Birthdays are a full-day event at my house, but taking the time to appreciate the morning is a great way to start the day. If this theme is too broad for you, you can take the day to highlight whichever food is your favorite.

BUY IN AMAZON

32. Backyard Brunch

COTIER Preprinted Mimosa Bar Supplies Decorations Kit

Or make it a brunch day in your backyard! This will leave the menu open for various food options, and the brunch atmosphere can help remind you of a weekend outing. 

Invite your close friends only and catch up on various life events. Brunch dates are my favorite part of the weekend, so celebrating them on my birthday is special.

BUY IN AMAZON

33. Dessert Party

34. Elegant Party

150pcs Gold Plates & Plastic Silverware & Gold Rimmed Cups, Celebrate Disposable Dinnerware Set for 25 Guest Include:25 Dinner Plates, 25 Dessert Plates, 25 Tumblers, 25 Forks, 25 Knives, 25 S...

If you miss dressing over the top for no reason, take this birthday as an excuse to have an elegant party. Bring your best dress, nicest shoes and cutest bag.

Do your hair and makeup as though you’re getting ready for a runway show. Make it a photoshoot on the sunniest day, and save up glam shots for future posts. 

I usually save the elegance for the holidays, to show off of course, but it was fun to make it a birthday theme as well. Also inexpensive with cheap decorations, but remember, it’s all about confidence!

BUY IN AMAZON

35. DIY Party

Herbal Tea Indoor Garden Seed Starter Growing Kit

Since we’re in a time where a lot of products can be DIY-ed, why not make a party out of these projects?

Try making candles or self-care products. Gardening kits, bath bomb kits, embroidery kits or food-related kits can also be great DIY 20th party projects. 

My best friend and I have crafted some of the kid kits like the science experiments and bracelet making.

It’s definitely more fun when you can understand the entire process as an adult. Introduce yourself or your friends to an old or new hobby!

BUY IN AMAZON

36. Glow-In-The-Dark

WILLBOND 33 Pieces Neon Birthday Glow Party Supplies

Remember when glow-in-the-dark parties were cool? Let’s bring that back as the “adult” years start to kick in. Definitely look for all sorts of glowing products, even down to the glowing ice cubes and temporary tattoos. 

My niece loves this because of the glowing items that last more than a day. If you’re looking for nostalgia, this is a great option!

BUY IN AMAZON

37. Throwback

Birthday Galore 90's JAM! Photo Booth Props Kit

Or if you feel that is too cheesy, have a general Throwback Thursday theme. This can mean either a party based on the early 2000s or, if you want to be more specific, pick a decade and invest in the period. 

We usually have this theme for the older people, so that they can dress up in a decade they did or didn’t participate in. Take it an extra step and research various popular foods of the time. Rock those platform shoes from the '70s!

BUY IN AMAZON

38. The 1920s

Tinksky 20pcs 1920s Photo Booth Props Roaring 20's Party Photo Props with Bamboo Sticks Creative Party Supplies,Perfect 1920s Themed Birthday Wedding Hollywood Party Decoration Accessories

But since we are in the 2020s now, a Roaring '20s party sounds like a perfect way to kick-start the year, and is also in keeping with the 20th birthday theme! Like the elegant party, this is your moment to show off how fancy you can get. 

Make sure you take lots of pictures and edit them with a 1920s look. This is a common decade-based party theme so it should not be hard to get everything in order for it. You have plenty of years to have this theme!

BUY IN AMAZON

39. Self-Care Day

Spove Sandal Floral Pedicure Set

Maybe you’re a busy college student and just need some rest. Have your family or friends fix you a self-care day. Everyone needs at least one a week, but for your birthday, it should be extra special. Any requests should be completed on your day! 

This is also a great day to try out natural skin and hair care products with your loved ones to make a more interactive self-care day. We usually have this as a pre-Mother’s Day activity so that the next day we have a…

BUY IN AMAZON

40. Pampering Party

Milk Here For The Party Mini Makeup Beauty Set

We always try to make the day extra special, so we extend it into a two part appreciation day. For a birthday, you and your friends can create looks with makeup and hair and can also make time for some manicures and pedicures. 

Whether you do it yourself or go to a salon, there’s no disappointment in this theme. If this is your version of a self-care day, don’t forget to take many pictures of your multiple looks.

I am a big advocate of having a mini-fridge with freezers for your dorm room so I compiled the top fridges to get for your dorm!

From really compact mini-fridges in the form of Magic Chef to Galanz retro fridges to match your dorm room aesthetics, you can’t go wrong with any of these mini-fridges!

At first, I was hesitant to get a mini-fridge with a freezer for my dorm room, and you may be too. But remember that your food expense is going to be a lot higher without a mini-fridge.

Your takeout food leftovers will go to waste — you can’t buy fresh groceries because you have no place to store them… it could cost you at least $105 or more per week just for takeout.

Having a fridge in your dorm room is a great way to save tons of money, and who doesn’t want a cold drink when you need to stay awake and pull all-nighters?

I chose these fridges based on positive reviews, size, advantages and disadvantages, and, of course, aesthetics and size. Trust me, you need a mini-fridge in your dorm!

So, let’s take a look at the best mini fridges with freezers for dorms! Check out this ultimate guide to getting a fridge in college!

Why Get a Mini Fridge In Your Dorm?

At first, I wasn’t a fan of getting a mini-fridge for my dorm, too, but as the semester progressed I realized that I was spending so much of my money on takeout.

Not only that, I never got to enjoy my leftovers because I had nowhere to store them. For example, after I ordered a $15 pasta from my favorite Italian restaurant, I just threw it immediately even if it wasn’t finished.

What a waste! So I highly recommend having a mini-fridge. A mini-fridge in your dorm will allow you to get takeout and have leftovers! This means you can save money by having two meals for the price of one.

Not only that, having a mini-fridge allows you to do some grocery shopping and make food because you have somewhere cool to store it.

Plus, you can also start doing food preparations so you don’t have to worry about what you’re going to eat next mealtime.

Where To Store Your Mini Fridge

Under the Bunk Bed

If you have the space under your bed, especially if it’s lofted, store your mini-fridge there. By having it under your bed, the mini-fridge wouldn’t get in the way of your other things.

Plus, if you have more space you can add shelves under your bed and turn it into a mini kitchen where your fridge is at.

By the Window

Another idea on where to store your mini-fridge in your dorm is to put it by the window!

If you have a desk by your dorm window then you can put the fridge to the side of the desk, but if it’s a completely open space, put your fridge by the window and use it as a mini shelf for your pot of plants or other things.

If your dorm comes equipped with shelves that are sturdy enough to handle a 50+-pound mini-fridge, then you can put your fridge on top of it.

This is a wise move because you level up your mini-fridge, which means no crouching down to get things, and you save space.

Just make sure your fridge doesn’t leak or don’t put any stuff that you wouldn’t want to get wet inside the shelf you would put your fridge on.

The Foot of Your Bed

Another area where you can store your mini-fridge in your dorm is by the foot of your bed. Like storing the fridge under your bed, this space wouldn’t get in the way of your other things.

Plus, if you need a cool drink in the middle of the night you don’t have to get up. Just reach out for the fridge by the bed!

Essentials For Your Mini Fridge

If you are getting a mini-fridge, make sure to get these essentials too so you can make the most out of your fridge.

Mini and stackable ice cube trays

Reusable freezer bags

Quart Freezer Bags Reusable Food Storage Bags for Vegetable, Liquid, Snack, Meat, Sandwich, 8.46x7.28 Inch, 10 Pack

Freezer bags are perfect for storing anything you can put in it. Get reusable ones so you don’t have to repurchase every time you need some.

BUY IN AMAZON

Over-the-door mini-fridge caddy

To really maximize the space of your mini-fridge, extend the space outside of the fridge with this over-the-door caddy.

In the caddy, you can store spices and condiments that are nonperishable or cooking tools. You can also store the reusable freezer bags in one of its pockets.

BUY IN AMAZON

Magnetic Rack

Another mini-fridge essential is a magnetic rack for storing more things! The best thing about this rack is that there are no tools necessary to install it.

If you have a mini-fridge then the magnet should automatically stick to it and then you’ll have yourself a rack where you can store anything, from paper towels to cutlery and more.

BUY IN AMAZON

Arm & Hammer Fridge Fresh Refrigerator Air Filter

BUY IN AMAZON

Food That Is Safe To Store In Your Mini Fridge

There is a lot of food that is safe to store in your mini-fridge. A key thing to keep in mind is that the fridge that you get should be able to keep items frozen and other things cool.

So, a lot of research is necessary before you buy your mini-fridge, but the fridges mentioned above are capable of storing a range of food. Here’s a sample list:

  • Fresh vegetables
  • Fruits
  • Cold cuts/Lunch meats
  • Milk
  • Eggs
  • Yogurt
  • Microwavable foods (TV Dinners, frozen meals, etc.)
  • Frozen vegetables
  • Ice cream
  • Cheese

Mini Fridge Resources

Saving in college can be an arduous task. Like I mentioned earlier, prior to having a mini-fridge, I would always have takeout, not realizing that I am spending more than what I can.

Truly, having a mini-fridge in my dorm was a big help in terms of keeping track of how I spend my money and how I budget my meals, and it will be for you, too.

But if you need further resources, here are my picks on resources that help me save and budget!

Digit (savings app)

Digit is an application that can help you keep track of your expenses and informs you about your spending habits. When you link your bank account to Digit, the app analyzes your spending habits and when you set a spending goal.

Digit moves small amounts of money each day to help you reach your short and long-term goals.

If you want to save money for your next grocery trip or for eating out, the app can save money for that goal using machine learning that calculates smart amounts of money to save!

Plus, like me, you will love that the application has a low balance protection option because this gives us the power to control how low our checking account goes. PS: If you sign up with our unique link, you get $5 for FREE. 

Ibotta (grocery shopping cellphone app)

If you are buying groceries and need to decide what products to put inside your mini-fridge, the best practice is to make a list of products that can save you further money.

Ibotta has partnered with a lot of stores, from Walmart to Safeway, that can help you earn money for every purchase you make. The app is pretty straightforward to use!

You get cashback for every coupon that you clip and I love how even by spending my money I can still save some because of Ibotta.

Before making purchases for your mini-fridge, make sure to check out the Ibotta app and see what I mean when they help you save more!

$5 Meal Plan

If you are totally clueless about what groceries to put in your mini-fridge or what meals to prepare for the week, have no fear! The $5 Meal Plan gives you a healthy and satiating meal plan for the week.

The best part? You can try it for free for up to two weeks and then you pay $5/month to continue the service, which is not bad, especially if you think of the ease it will provide.

One thing I love about the plan is that it provides you a grocery list of ingredients!

So, if you are looking for things to put in your mini-fridge, the best way is to check the list and see if one thing is used for most of the ingredients and you can buy and store it in your newly bought mini-fridge for your dorm. Check it out here.

In Conclusion

Having a mini-fridge when you’re living in a dorm is a gift that keeps on giving.

When purchasing a mini-fridge for your dorm, make sure you’ve done adequate research to know which fridge can fit in your space, which of them has enough cooling power and which one matches your aesthetics (mini-fridges don’t need to be boring!).

I hope this article helped you find the perfect mini-fridge for you, and if you’re still on the fence about getting one, trust me, you need one.

Having one in your dorm affords you convenience and will surely save you money with all the meal preparation and storing you’ll be able to do. Have a great semester!

This post probably contains affiliate links. Our full disclosure is long, but you can find it here.

For many of us, finding our first apartment can be exciting and a bit nerve-wracking.

Usually, when finding our first apartment, we are either reaching adulthood, moving out for our studies, recent college graduates, or have just gained financial stability.

When relocating, there are many things to consider; these include many small essentials that we probably paid no mind to before moving out.

Small necessities such as toilet paper and kitchen essentials can add up to be costly. Having a plan before moving will help you stay on budget and avoid the headache of deciding what you need to purchase for your apartment.

Through my personal experiences and consulting with friends, I have gathered a ‘First Apartment Checklist’ that will get you moving in no time.

Keep in mind: if you are planning to buy any essentials online, you should take a look at this cashback app to get a percentage back on your orders. This is an excellent idea for big purchases! You will save a lot of money.

I would say that, to start, our first and foremost important category is bedroom essentials.

In this Post

Bedroom Essentials

Get a Bed!

There are many different types of beds. Before buying, make sure to consider the size of your room. Measure your room and keep in mind the other spaces needed for your other bedroom essentials.

I have created a list of beds that would be a wise choice for your apartment. All of them are affordable options.

Types of Beds:

Platform

ZINUS Shalini Upholstered Platform Bed Frame / Mattress Foundation / Wood Slat Support / No Box Spring Needed / Easy Assembly, Dark Grey, Queen

I absolutely admire the appearance of this platform bed. It makes your room look sophisticated. Very chic!

The headboard, with its sophisticated stitching and button tufting, rises more than 2 feet over the top of the bed frame to create a focal point in your bedroom, even with a very thick mattress.

If you are looking for a modern-style bedroom, platform beds are the best choice. You can comfortably enjoy your movie night without needing an extra pillow to lean against!

Another great feature about this bed is that it is easy to assemble, and you can tuck away smaller items and most storage bins underneath the bed.

BUY IN AMAZON

Storage Beds

Bedbathandbeyond

Are you in need of many storage containers? I recommend storage beds if you are the type of person with many things lying around, or if you’re living with your partner – do they need storage space?

Personally, I have a hard time staying organized, which is why I have this type of bed. It allows your bedroom to look neat along with providing plenty of storage room for your essentials.

The best part is that you won’t need to buy as many storage bins as you would’ve had you gone with a regular bed. Saving money and space - what’s not to love?

BUY IN BED BATH AND BEYOND

Adjustable Bed

LUCID L150 Bed Base – Upholstered Frame – Head and Foot Incline – Wireless Remote Control, Queen, Charcoal Adjustable

This type of bed usually enables you to increase or decrease the angle of the upper and lower part of the bed. It’s a good choice for when you want to read a book, watch TV, etc.

An adjustable bed has countless benefits, such as improved blood circulation, lessened back pain, and reduced acid reflux. It is best to take care of yourself before facing complications!

Also, who doesn’t like to adjust their bed perfectly how they like it?

BUY IN AMAZON

Futon Bed

DHP Lodge Convertible Futon Couch Bed with Microfiber Upholstery and Wood Legs, Charcoal

I remember the first time I saw one of these at a friend’s apartment – I never knew it was a bed! Futon beds are foldable beds that resemble a couch, which makes it no surprise that you can easily use them both ways.

This type of bed is great for college students moving out of their parent’s house for the first time. Why? The bed is affordable and doesn’t require much space, making it a good option when moving into a small apartment.

Not to mention, you are saving time and money not having to purchase both a bed and couch. In addition, this bed would be great for your guests looking to stay overnight.

BUY IN AMAZON

Standard Bed Sizes: 

Twin

A twin bed is the smallest size bed in the market. It’s typically made for one person.

Dimension (38” X 75”)

Twin XL

The Twin XL is slightly bigger than the original twin size bed. If you are tall, the extra space makes it a better option than a standard twin bed.

Dimension (39” X 80”)

Full (May fit two people)

Dimension (54” X 75”)

Full XL

Dimension (54” X 80”)

Queen

Dimension (60” x 80”)

King

Dimension (76” x 80”)

Get a Mattress!

Finding a good mattress is just as important as buying a bed. Make sure to try it out before buying! Purchasing a mattress without trying puts you at risk of harming your back and other body parts.

Memory Foam Mattress

Bedbathandbeyond

As its name implies, the memory foam mattress has a layer of memory foam along with springs or other support foam.

The memory foam mattress is my favorite. I love the feeling of my body sinking into it. The mattress is soft yet firm, which supports your body while having all the benefits of a soft bed you can fall into.

What makes this mattress very cool is that It sinks when you lie into it, but bounces back when you get up; however, over time, the bed will slowly “memorize” your sleeping position and shape.

BUY IN BED BATH AND BEYOND

Benefits:

      • Retains body heat (Excellent for keeping warm in the winter!)
      • Helps lower pressure points
      • Supports back and neck
      • Hypoallergenic
      • Modern style

Gel-Foam Mattress

Bedbathandbeyond

Memory foam and gel foam mattresses are alike, but have a heat difference.

Benefits:

  • Allows the body to stay cool (Recommended if you get hot quickly)
  • Helps decrease back pain
  • Supports back and neck
  • Remembers and contours to your sleep form (With a partner, you wouldn’t feel their consistent movements!)
  • Immune to dust mites
BUY IN BED BATH AND BEYOND

Innerspring Mattress

Full Mattress, Molblly 12 inch Individually Wrapped Coils Innerspring Mattress, Pocket Spring Hybrid Mattresses Full Size

This type of mattress is the standard, making it affordable. However, there is a wide range in cost, depending on the materials used and the manufacturer.

The mattress consists of springs that support the bed, along with metal wires.

It was the first kind of modern mattress released in the market, taking over traditional wool, hay, straws, etc.

Benefits:

  • Metal wires generate a lifting effect
  • Low-cost (Recommended for students looking to save money)
  • Firm & sturdy
  • Durable (Very long-lasting!)
BUY IN AMAZON

Latex Mattress

Sunrising Bedding 10" Natural Latex Full Mattress, Individually Encased Pocket Coil, Firm, Supportive, Naturally Cooling, Organic Mattress, 120-Night Free Trial, 20-Year Warranty

Latex mattresses are made with simple latex materials or with other elements of natural wool and cotton.

It doesn’t let your body sink in as memory foam does, which gives you it added benefit of letting your body stay cool, as it is open to more air.

Most latex mattresses are known to be antibacterial and low maintenance. If you like a firm yet bouncy bed, I highly recommend latex.

Benefits:

  • Eco-friendly
  • Firm
  • Long-lasting
  • Bouncy
  • Easy to clean
BUY IN AMAZON

Hybrid Mattress

Olee Sleep 13 inch Galaxy Hybrid Gel Infused Memory Foam and Pocket Spring Mattress (Full)

As its name implies, hybrid mattresses combine the various types of mattresses into one. The hybrid mattress consists of innerspring, memory foam, gel, and latex.

You are getting the best of all mattresses in one; the foam helps lower pressure points while the construction of innerspring coils brings durability. Keep in mind, it’s generally more costly than memory foam, although it may last longer.

Benefits:

  • Lower pressure points
  • Firm and sturdy
  • Eco- friendly
  • Even weight distribution
  • Easy to clean (It comes with removable covers)
BUY IN AMAZON

To save room, you may want to invest in a Portable Closet

More Bedroom Essentials!

  • Sheets
  • Pillows
  • Blankets
  • Bed Stand/Frame
  • Clothes Hangers
  • Desk
  • Mirror
  • Curtains (don’t forget your windows!)
  • TV Stand
  • Trash Bin
  • Nightstand

I recommend a nightstand for resting your phone and charger on. In addition, you should consider a lamp for your nightstand!

  • TV

Common sizes: (in inches)

32, 40, 42, 46-49, 55, 60, 65, 70, 75, and 80.

Check out the difference in sizes!

Kitchen Essentials

How much cooking are you planning on doing? Factor that in as you look at this list. Here are the basic necessities for the kitchen.

Get a Few Pans!

My friends and I usually use non-stick pans; it helps save time with cleaning, because foods don’t annoyingly stick to the pan. However, stainless steel pans are recommended if you are cooking with high heat, although they may more cleaning.

Generally, non-stick pans are coated with Teflon, giving them their non-stick quality. This type of coating cannot be used with high heat as it can release harmful chemicals.

Furthermore, if you find yourself using butter in many of your meals as opposed to cooking oil, a nonstick pan would be suitable for you due to its requirement of low-to-medium heat.

However, I recommend buying both stainless steel and non-stick pans for your apartment, because both types of pans have their unique usages.

Nonstick Pans:

Amazon Basics 3-Piece Non-Stick Frying Pan Set - 8 Inch, 10 Inch, and 12 Inch, Black

Remember, you don’t need to use a lot of cooking oil (use with low-to-medium heat)

Great Uses:

  • Frying and scrambling eggs
  • Making pancakes & waffles
  • Frying bacon
  • Creamy, cheesy recipes (Doesn’t stick to the pan)

Don’t Use:

  • Acidic recipes (such as tomatoes) (Using nonstick pans would ruin coating)
BUY IN AMAZON

Stainless Steel Pans:

Misen Stainless Steel Frying Pan Set - 5 Ply Steel Skillet - Professional Grade Pans for Cooking - 8, 10, and 12 Inch

Use a generous amount of coating

Great uses:

  • Deep frying
  • Searing and charring meats
  • Acidic recipes
  • Preparing soups and sauces
BUY IN AMAZON

Get Some Pots!

Can’t Forget Kitchen Knives!

Chef’s Knife 

Utility Knife

HENCKELS Forged Premio Utility Knife, 6 inch, Black/Stainless Steel

Chef’s knives and utility knives are both multipurpose. However, a chef’s knife has a larger blade, making it a better choice for bigger ingredients. The utility knife is wider in width and shorter in length, serving a purpose for smaller ingredients.

Uses:

  • Multifunctional
  • Ideal for small ingredients
  • Suitable for mincing and creating small precise cuts
BUY IN AMAZON

Santoku knife

Santoku Knife - imarku 7 inch Kitchen Knife Ultra Sharp Asian Knife Japanese Chef Knife - German HC Stainless Steel 7Cr17Mov - Ergonomic Pakkawood Handle, Best Choice for Home Kitchen, Brown

I love the santoku knife due to its light weight. In addition, the tip of the blade isn’t sharp, making it a safe choice for beginners in the kitchen.

Many people confuse a Santoku knife with a chef’s knife, as they look quite similar. However, it is important to note that the Santoku knife has a thinner blade.

Uses

  • Dicing
  • Mincing
  • Cutting fruits and veggies
BUY IN AMAZON

Bread Knife

8-Inch Bread Knife, Serrated Bread Knife, Bread Cutter & Bread Slicers For Homemade Bread, Cake and Bagels, Ultra-Sharp German Stainless Steel-ABS Handle

As its name implies, this knife is suitable for all types of bread. Nevertheless, you may also use it for countless other foods.

Technology Essentials

      • Smart Thermostat

I recommend a smart thermostat for your apartment. Why? Because you can adjust the temperature of your apartment to your preference using a smart thermostat. The thermostat will turn on and off at certain times, making it convenient and cost-effective!

      • Coffee Maker

      • Air Purifier

      • Smoke Detector

      • Touchless Trash Bins

      • Charging Lamps

      • Amazon Echo

I highly recommend that you purchase Amazon Echo for your first apartment if you haven’t already! It is an intelligent speaker that listens to your commands and answers your questions.

The speaker would help assist you with specific tasks without you having to move an inch. This is extremely useful for just about anyone, especially if you are busy running errands all day.

General Uses

      • Answers phone calls
      • Turns your lights on and off with voice commands
      • Controls the thermostat
      • Searches for things on the internet with voice commands

Check out the Amazon Echo and its capabilities.
