Congratulations! You’re about to move into your stunning new home! When you build a custom home a lot of the moving process is easier. You won’t have any renovations to undertake, and the layout will be planned specifically for you. That said, moving is always a bit of a struggle, even when it’s a custom home. With a little planning and some care, your moving process can be easier than ever.
Plan and Pack Early
One of the best things you can do to make your moving process easier is to begin packing early. When you get a jump start, it’s much easier to create an organized system with well labeled and easy to find markings. Of course, not everything can be packed up in advance, but having a thought out plan and sticking to it can make a huge difference in the level of stress and chaos.
Arrange Professional Movers
When it comes to the actual process of moving everything from one house to another, the stress can be overwhelming. To reduce the problem, having a professional moving service on hire is a great option. Not only will they have the right equipment on hand to move and deal with all of your boxes and furniture, but they’ll have the manpower to make it all quicker. If you choose a moving service, make sure that they are briefed in advance so that they know to look out for any heavy and fragile items.
Help Kids Adjust
Moving is hard for everyone, but for children, it can be even harder. It can take time for kids to process a move and often they may not fully understand what is happening and why. There are plenty of tips and tricks to help them adjust, two of the best include making sure they have the time they need to say goodbye to your old home. The second tip is to allow them to play a large part in the decorating process of their new space. Allowing them to choose the paint color for their room, for instance, can help get them excited for the move.
Unpack and Decorate
Along with letting kids choose their room color, getting the entire family in on the decorating process can make your new house feel like home much faster. Before you move, make sure to plan out some of the basics of how you will arrange furniture and household items. Having a base plan will help you get the set up done faster so that you can begin unpacking quickly.
