some esssential 'home' items in Japanese

Hi all,

So having moved to my new apartment here in Japan, I'd love to hear your advice or thoughts on what are some essential items I should know how to say. I'm not sure how to ask for these items because I've either heard different words for it, or I just don't know haha.

~ How would I say room-spray, or fragrance for my room?
~ How would i ask for a small bookshelf, or bookcase to place books?
~ Is there a special word for slippers you wear inside the house and bedroom, vs. 'kutsu' the shoes you wear outdoors?

Domo arigato =)
