A Beginner’s Guide to Unpacking your Home

 There are a few mistakes that are easy to make if you’re new to the concept of moving house. One of the most popular mistakes is incorrectly unpacking. You spend so many hours packing, loading and unloading, working yourself up about the big move, and yet you have no plan when it comes to starting your new life in your new house. This is something you should try to avoid at all costs! Take a look at this guide for successful and stress-free unpacking.

1) Essentials.
 Make sure to have packed your essentials in clearly marked boxes. Your essentials should include enough household items to last you at least three days (i.e. three days’ worth of cutlery, plates, clothes, bedding, towels etc). Make sure these boxes also include any things you might need for work, children or pets.
 You might be tempted to start unpacking room by room. This will almost certainly make your house feel more homely, but it can lead to many problems. Instead, try to unpack all your essential boxes first. Start with the kitchen before  moving home Fulham  on to the bedroom and then finally the bathroom. It’s likely you’ll want to feel at home straight away, but it’s much more practical to have your bed and toothbrush waiting for you at the end of such a long day as opposed to your DVD collection! This will cut-down on the stress of not being able to find exactly what you need when you need it.a beginners guide to unpacking
2) Slow down.
 Once you’ve got your essentials unpacked and re-homed you can take a break! It’s a common mistake to want to get absolutely every box opened and sorted in as little time as possible, but this is only going to make things more stressful. Opening one box at a time will keep your home as tidy as possible whilst also minimizing the risk of you losing essential items. This tip makes it much easier for you to keep stress levels under control.
3) Appliances.
 Setting up any kitchen appliances is important as you’ll most likely need to be making a cup of tea or coffee before the day is out. The same goes for other appliances. Getting your television set-up may not seem like a priority, but it will help pull your home together and make it look a bit less cluttered!
4) Furniture and Layout.
 Before you delve into the boxes that aren’t high-priority, try to make sure the layout of each room is to your liking. It’s a lot easier to move furniture around before you’ve unpacked, so take your time in getting the rooms to your taste before cracking open that first box.
5) Spare Rooms.
 As you get stuck into unpacking each room try to keep living areas such as the kitchen and living room as clutter-free as possible. Condense any remaining boxes into spare bedrooms or in other space-saving places, such as the garage. This will help you in taking time to unpack. It isn’t a race, and you’re more likely to lose things if you’re hurrying to get everything unboxed. However, it’s important to make sure you don’t forget to unpack anything. It’s tempting to leave the rest when you’ve got most of it out of the way, but your house will never be a home if this is the case!
