Here are some of my input.
Alright, depending on your budget and misc, but minimum cat 6, will you be laying cables all by yourself? or contractor to lay the cables and perform patching and termination by yourself?
Any estimated cable points you are going to lay out?
Normally i will also make and print a copy of a floorplan / blueprint for a reference. Easy to locate and troubleshoot.
If you have a label printer, it is good also to label those.
Is your apartment having any riser to go access to pull the cables? Check for this also, it would be handy.
Get reputable network cables, e.g. Belden, Panduit, AMP, 3M.
If your place is “noisy” shielded is a good option for internal cable backbone run.
I will take EIA-TIA-568B wiring as a guide. which I do normally.
In Summary of parts you need for cabling matters,
If your apartment is big, suggest to get a drum / box of cable, est about 305M or 1000ft
# Network RJ-45 connectors, think how much you need, get some spares. get reputable like 3M, AMP
If you lay all by yourself, there are some consideration, best if the backbone cables are concealed inside conduit, to prevent rat bites, and misc. You might also need a fish tape puller to push and pull into.
Conduit - Metal is best but can be costy, another alternative is use plastic.
Keystones, can get a little extra which I will do it for backup and for your practice.
110 (One-Ten) Patch Panel at the termination point.
Proper crimping tools
I personally prefer this, to others, and punch tool.
I suggest you get some of the yellow one as it is not so expensive, also handy to strip wires and punch to keystone.
Network tester, cheap and good I can think of now, SC8108
, of course there are fluke and industrial tester, but this SC8108 get most of the job done. I know some of this have tone tracer, which is good to use for identifying the cables at the remote end.
Good wire cutter or garden pruning shears,
It is okay to lay a little more, which i suggest, in case of any keystone faceplate having issues, there are some excess which you can use of.
Some Electrical wire tape, maybe to hold in place.
Network cable “boots” to relieve strain stress on the cables end.
If you need quick patch cables, and does not want to make yourself,
you can consider looking those ready made from monoprice, their cables are good also.
