Moving into a new home can be daunting. The more organized and planned out your move is, the less stressful it will be. However, there’s also the added stress of not knowing exactly where you’re going to put everything once you arrive at your new place. Here are a few of our tips that make fitting into your new place a little easier.
Declutter As You Pack
Moving is the perfect time to get rid of unwanted or unused items in your current home. You don’t want to transfer what you’ll need to declutter later to your new home. After discarding what you don’t want to bring with you, make lists of items you need to buy.
Do A Walk Through
Do a walkthrough of your new home to ensure everything is right. This can also give you a better sense of what should go where before you start bringing in boxes. During your walk through, check that:
- All agreed upon repairs are finished
- All switches and outlets work properly
- All windows and doors are functional
- The sellers left behind any manuals or warranties
Get Out The Measuring Tape
Figuring out what furniture is going to go where is one of the most important tasks. During your initial walk through, bring a measuring tape along. Measure door height and width, the dimensions of the living room and other rooms that will hold large furniture pieces, and any other area you’ll need. It’s also a good idea to measure windows for any curtains or treatments you’re planning on installing.
As you’re measuring, you can start planning out how you’re going to organize and set up your larger furniture items. Having a general idea will help make the unloading process more streamlined.
Before you start bringing in your large items, give each room a deep cleaning so you can be sure you’re starting with a blank slate. Start with high surfaces like door frames and ceiling fans, working your way to the baseboards. You also may want to take care to clean any tables, lamps, plates, and other smaller items as you move them in.
