Make Moving an Exciting Experience
Make Moving an Exciting Experience
06 August 2014
Moving to a new home is a real life experience – exciting and, at the same time, stressful. With a number of easy steps, however, moving to a new home can proceed more smoothly, more easily and more enjoyably.
A move to a new home can make you sick for a long time. Planning, packing, transporting and cleaning are mixed in a labor-intensive process that becomes even more stressful if you are pressed for time. And when you close the door of the old house behind your back, there is another challenge – the arrangement of the new one. Therefore, even if it seems unimportant where it is best to place the crystal glasses or the cookware, consider the details in advance. The last thing you need after the exhausting process of moving into a new home is to answer such “fundamental” questions.
How to Organize the Specific Process of Moving
First, note the two main activities in moving house – packaging inventory of the old house and adapting the new one for living. Removal is usually a pre-planned event, so you can start with the packaging as soon as the decision is taken and even before you have found a new home. The earlier you start the process of removal, the more relaxed you will be in the end.
Step One – Get Rid of Useless Items
Everything you have never used or that is worn and old should be discarded. This includes those items that you simply no longer want in your home, but for some reason you have store in the bottom of a cupboard. If you do not want to throw them away, donate them or give them to your friends. Be sure that the transfer of your house will be much easier this way.
Step Two – Clean and Pack
The best option for you is to combine the clearance process of the extra things with the packaging of the items that you intend to keep. Naturally, it comes to those items you will not have to use immediately after the arrival to the new home (books, documents, clothes, photo albums, etc.). Seal tightly each box and label it to handle more easily with the unpacking. Do not leave boxes scattered throughout the house because this will create a state of chaos. But do not carry them to the new home, since it requires little preliminary preparation.
Step Three – Prepare the New Home
Design your dream home. Now is the time to apply a few tricks for professional painting of the walls without worrying about messing the furniture. Spend a few days dedicated to this particular activity. Think about colors in interior design and tones that can bring freshness and variety in each of the rooms. Stroll through the rooms and imagine the layout of the furniture. After a few weeks you have spent carefully packing them, your idea of how you want to arrange your home will be much clearer. Do not give up the magic of home lighting and mirrors. Look for various ideas and suggestions on how to create a modern and comfortable home and interpret them according to your understanding of style. Make the move to your new home an enjoyable experience.
