If You're Moving In to Your First Place, Here's What Your Kitchen Needs
When I moved in to my first apartment, I knew what bedding I wanted and how I would arrange the throw pillows on my couch, but I had no idea what to do about the kitchen. Having lived with a mom who's arguably the best cook I knew made me feel a little bit better when I went food shopping, as I'd spent my life watching her in the kitchen, but I still felt a bit bewildered. It got so bad that I had to leave Williams Sonoma when shopping for pots and pans. There are so many different options for what feels like kitchen basics, and I just didn't know what to do. So, if you're looking to stock up your own brand-new kitchen, I've complied a list of the 15 items you absolutely need, whether you're a proficient chef or can barely boil an egg.
What do I consider to be absolutely necessary for a kitchen? Well, silverware, glasses, plates, and bowls all fit that list.
