Tips for unpacking your new home

Dec 15. 2015

Since you’ll be tired after moving home to the new place, you will most probably take at least ten minutes of rest to catch your breath. How long to unpack after moving, is up to you but the sooner you get started the quicker you can stat to live and settle in to your new abode.

Start with cleaning up every room.
Unfortunately, it’s always about cleaning, otherwise results won’t be good. Hopefully, you prepared a box of cleaning detergents beforehand so you don’t have to walk around wondering where they are packed.

Open box of essentials first. In a previous article, we mentioned how important the box of essential is. Open it now and find all your essential items, such as toilet paper, toothbrush, snacks, a change of clothes, and anything you can’t get by without.

Open “bathroom” labelled boxes.
Find the box, labelled “bathroom” and unpack. This is the easiest room, since all the furniture is installed beforehand. Place all your hygiene products, toilet paper, bathroom cleaning detergents, shower curtain and just about anything you’re going to have there.

Arrange the furniture.
Tell the professional movers where to place each piece upon arriving, since it’s usually part of the service. It would have been a real help unpacking after a move. But if you haven’t made a plan for that beforehand and the furniture is just put wherever, now is the time to arrange it.

Arrange the closets.
We proceed with closets, since once you arrange all your clothes, you close the doors and move on to the next thing without creating a mess that can make walking difficult.

Arrange the cabinets.
Just like with clothes, anything that is going to stay in just one place, should be put there. Books, old clocks, electronics, and everything else should get out of the way like this.

Put up the wall decorations.
Wall pictures, posters, curtains won’t pose any difficulty, so get them out of your way.

Roll the carpets.
Carpets and rugs come in last, since they would only get in the way if we placed them in the beginning.
