When it comes to moving home, every individual is different. For some, moving home fills them with a feeling of opportunity, fun, and energy. They love the feeling of decorating their new home with their stuff. For others, shifting home is a cumbersome task, and they hate the drudgery of unpacking the packed boxes. If you fall into the latter category of people who dislike unpacking after moving, we have you covered. Here we list out certain things that you should keep in mind to make the move as smooth as possible.
First Things First:
You can't unpack everything in one day, so don't lose your calm and unpack at a slower yet normal pace that suits your time and needs. It is a good idea to break down the unpacking into several days.
Before you place your belongings where they should be, clean and prepare your new house. Wipe the shelves, mop the floor, and give a quick vacuum in every corner.
To avoid moving larger boxes and items several times from one room to another, plan the room. It is advisable that you have at least a vague idea of how your new house should look like; for instance, decide where you want your LED to be.
Unpack with a System
Unless you have hired a big team of movers, who can do the work for you with the blink of an eye, don't jump into opening boxes randomly. Examine the box labels and put them in the desired room before you start emptying them.
TIP: To make the work easy, make sure you create an inventory list while packing your belongings. The inventory list will help you keep the items organised according to the usage.
Unpack the Larger Items
The bulky pieces of furniture such as beds, dresser, couches, and tables make the task look daunting. Before you open the smaller items, ensure that you have positioned the big items in place.
You will definitely need at least the bed and couch the day you move in. Setting these essentials on the first day will keep you from draining energy later. Also, this will save plenty of your time, and you will be able to arrange other items beside them or inside them properly.
Tip: Ensure that you know where all the furniture should be; otherwise, it is a waste of time to assemble and de-assemble again and again.
Unpack the Essentials
Essentials items that are required urgently or daily must be unpacked after putting together the furniture. These items may include toiletries, medicine, some basic food preparation items, etc.
If you have young children, unpack some toys, games, and books in the first few hours so that they remain occupied and you can concentrate on your work.
Unpack the Kitchen Items:
Now, get the kitchen done at the earliest. If you don't have time to finish the kitchen, unpack the pots, pans, spices, and ingredients that are required daily. Organise rest of the kitchen the next day to make a major part of your moving done with ease and convenience.
Do the Bathroom followed by Bedroom
After the kitchen is done, start with the bathrooms. Since the bathrooms are functional already, you don't have to put in much effort. Start by unpacking items like body-care products, towels, curtains, etc. Once you have set all these, unpack the linen for each bedroom, including kids' room. Decide on your closet organisation and get your clothes out of the boxes and suitcases.
Keep Utility for Last
Boxes that belong to the garage, store room, and other utility room must be unpacked at last. Since you don't need them urgently, you can wait until you have the time and energy to deal with them. The utility items can also include shelving units that can be unpacked towards the end.
With these tips, we hope that unpacking does not haunt you anymore, and you have enough energy to turn your new home into sweet, comfortable, and functional one quickly. Try to enjoy your new space once you have the essential unpacking completed. Set a few hours aside every day and get the job finished gradually and comfortably.
