What do we absolutely need?

Our house is filled with things that were mostly handed down or found at yard sales. Everything's mismatched, falling apart, duplicated or just not something we fancy staring at. We've decided to take some time and gradually replace everything in our house with good quality essentials. Things that will last for years and maybe even get passed on to any future kids. The kitchen's first.
So basically, I'm looking for a big list of all the mandatory kitchen tools. As in, all the basic things you absolutely need in order to have a functioning kitchen. How many saucepans do I need, what kind of knives, must we all have a slotted spoon, etc.
On the subject of knives, gadgets and pots/pans: any recommendations for brands that will last and last would also be fantastic. We're slowly working our way through each and every room, so if you have any other handy tips for living room, bedroom, bathroom and office basic essentials feel free to throw them in!
