Moving into a new house is a lot of work, you need to start from scratch. You also need to ensure that this adjustment goes as smoothly as possible. First things first; start with a list, write down the most essential and once you’ve gotten them move on to planning what each room in the house demands. Moving in calls for a lot of effort, read on to make your new house become your home!
The living room is the first place guests enter when they visit and we all know how important first impressions are! Make certain that the living room is furnished first. Start with a welcome mat. The most basic requirements for any living room is a coffee table and a sofa set. Add a recliner, bean bag and picture frames for a homely feel. Don’t forget the rug and curtains to match!
Next comes the kitchen. The most essential item to have in your kitchen is a gas cooker, then comes the kitchenware and cutlery. Once you’ve stocked up on groceries, it’s time to decorate your kitchen and personalize it by placing a fruit bowl on your stainless steel benchtop and a vase on your kitchen island. Amidst the moving in, don’t forget to fill your fridge and pantry with food!
A bed, a bedside drawer, pillows and a few bed sheets! Start with the most fundamental and then go on to the rest such as comfy rugs, a chair, a dressing table, and your favorite wall art. Fill in your closet and drawers, that’s the first step to making it feel like you belong in your new home, placing your possessions where they belong! Try your ultimate best not to live off your moving box for more than three days (as big a challenge as it sounds).
Start with adding a mirror to your washroom, and then fill your stainless steel shelves with towels, soap, shampoo and lotion. Don’t forget the hand wash next to the sink! If possible add a first aid box in your washroom and fill it with band aids, aspirin and other medicinal items.
You’ll need to get a washing machine, dryer, detergent, an iron and other necessities around your home. A few plates, mugs, and a kettle for your kitchen and rugs to place around. Don’t forget a mop, broom and air freshener. Stay clean!
Once your most basic shopping is done, your new home will feel as comfy as ever. You’ll slowly get back to your familiar routine with your family and everything will slowly fall in place. Install your art/décor, play your favorite music and set the lighting to your fondness and voila, your new home is complete!
