Making Your New House A Home Right From The Get Go

23:00

Moving to a new house can be really exciting, but it can also be a little eery. Who wants to spend time in a uncomfortable, mostly empty building? These tips will help you to make your house a home right from the get go, so you can feel comfortable and happy ASAP.

Introduce Yourself To Your Neighbours
Don’t hesitate to introduce yourself to your neighbours, either before you’re due to move in or soon after. They might even take the first step and introduce themselves to you. All you need to do is be polite, tell them your name, and they should ask a little about you. Hopefully, you’ll make a friend who will help you out if you need to borrow something like a lawn mower or cup of sugar! You should also feel better about living in an unfamiliar place when you know your neighbour.

Ensure You Pack In A Way That Makes Sense And Label Everything
Packing is one of the most important parts of moving, and doing it in a way that makes sense ensures that when you get to your new place, you can unpack easily. A good removals company can help you with this, and ensure that your stuff is transported safely to your new location. By taking the time to label everything, you’ll make quick work of unpacking too.

Get That Familiar ‘Home’ Scent
Is there a smell that you automatically associate with home? Maybe you could introduce this into your new place. You can get candles that smell of just about anything these days, from cookies to talcum powder. Light one and your home will smell amazing, and so much more familiar.

Personalise It
Make sure you personalise your home as soon as possible too. Put up pictures of friends and family. Display your collections. Make it known that you live there!

Arrange A House Warming Party
Arrange a house warming party with your friends and family too, so you can start making amazing memories in your new place right away. You could even invite a few of your neighbours to get to know them!

If you’ve moved a fair bit away from your friends and family, it could be a good idea to join some sort of club, such as book club or gym class, and invite people you like from there.

Make It Nice And Cosy
Making your home cosy will stop it from feeling empty and eerie. Add rugs and plenty of cushions, not to mention throws. Get the temperature just right too!

Add A Plant To Your Decor
Plants look great, and they are great for our health too. By adding an attractive plant, you’ll instantly make your place look more homely and experience health benefits, such as reduced risk of depression!

You don’t have to move into your home and struggle to get used to it. Use these tips and you’ll feel at home in no time. Tips of your own? Leave them below!
