Going Solo: 4 Things You Need for a Fun Metro Pad

King-sized bedHaving your own place can be exciting, but to make it even more fun, you should know exactly what you need to make the most of your new personal space. Below, Anson’s shares some of the must-haves for every first-time pad owner:

Tasty Food

Of course, who would want to stay in a place that would only leave them starving? Your pad will be your home, and a home needs some good food. If you prefer to cook your own food, then do the grocery at least once a week to stock up on supplies. But, if you prefer to dine out, be prepared to spend more, as restaurants in the metro tend to be pricier.

Comfy Bed and Chairs

Since you will be staying at your pad for a long time, it’s a good idea to invest in comfortable furniture. If you are staying with a roommate, it’s best to buy a bunk bed. But, if you’ll have the place on your own, consider a king-sized one.

Thrilling Entertainment System

There will be times when you’ll want to catch up on movies or TV shows that you’ve missed. On a budget? Try the big plasma TVs; they are considerably more affordable because of their outdated technology, but still worth the price.

Craving for crisp and clear details? Go for the latest flat-screen ones such as Samsung LED TV, which boast better resolutions and less power usage, or the usual Sony Bravia models. A home theater set-up can be a good addition.

Updated Gadgets

In this modern age, everyone needs to stay connected. Having the latest mobile phone and laptop or desktop will keep you updated with your friends and family.

Investing in your own place should be a priority, as it will be your home for the next couple of months or even years. Just be careful not to spend too much on these items; remember, you still have to consider your monthly electric and water bills.
