You have just bought a new house and you are preparing to move! Exciting things, but also a stressful time. Moving is one thing, but there’s a lot to consider. Will your current furniture fit? If you’re expanding, what will you need for the new rooms you’re expanding into? What style are you looking to go with?
Lots to think about!
We have the answers to help you streamline your move and set you up for success in your new home. We’ll also give you an overview of what sets your furniture apart in your new home. Let’s dive!
Make Your Busy Areas a Priority
Furniture needs can add up quickly, but it’s important to focus your time on the areas you’ll use the most. Furnish these areas first and set a schedule to fill in the less frequented areas of your home.
Planning on having dinner guests all the time? Go the extra mile to furnish your dining room first. Kitchens, bedrooms and living rooms all fit here too. Take care of that first and the rest will fall into place. The idea is to make your space livable based on where you spend the most time and take it from there.
This one gets missed once in a while, but it’s important to measure your space and see how your furniture will fit. If you have an app that uses AR technology, use it to get a rough estimate of how your space will feel with the items in it.
Another important consideration is the layout of your bedroom assets. Consider the location of your doors, windows, outlets, switches and lights. Floor plans are helpful, as are photos of your rooms.
And if you run out of tape measure, use your iPhone to measure your space!
Great lighting goes a long way
Lighting is one of the most important considerations in your furnishing journey. Good light sources make all the difference in the look of your home.
Keep that in mind during the day too!
If natural light isn’t abundant in your home, consider using smaller, warmer light sources throughout the room to light things up and create a cozy atmosphere.
Light control is equally important, which is why curtains, shutters and blinds are important for controlling temperature and creating a sense of privacy.
Keep it or get rid of it
A final tip is to consider what you need and don’t need in your new home. Are you adding rooms to your new home or losing space? What about the size of your new coins?
After measuring and taking stock of your new home, measure your current furniture and visualize if, where and how it will fit after the move. If there’s something that doesn’t fit, consider giving it away or selling it! This is an opportunity for a fresh start and a new design in your new home.
All things Considered. Try not to stress! Moves can be a lot, but they’re a great opportunity to start fresh and try new things. Keep these tips in mind and you’re on your way to checking furnishings off your to-do list.
