Congratulations, you’re almost done! By this point, you’ve likely called tons of different movers for quotes, booked the mover that best suits your needs and budget, packed up box after box, and watched the moving men haul everything you own away in their truck. Now, it’s time for the fun part..arranging the furniture in your new home. It is essential now that you put some time and care into arranging your new place’s furniture to make it feel like home. Here are some of our tried and tested tricks and tips for arranging furniture without breaking your back or the bank.
Arranging Furniture in Your New Home
Bring out the measuring tape
The smartest approach is to visit your new home before move-in to take some general measurements. Visiting the home and seeing for yourself the layout will help ensure that your favorite pieces of furniture and decor will fit appropriately in your new space. Be sure to pay close attention to any oddly-shaped rooms or tight fits that may become a problem when moving in your furniture. The sooner you spot the potential issues, the sooner you and your moving team can come up with solutions. Once you’ve done your general measurements, it’s time to move on to the more detailed measurements. For example, measure how much room is between the window and your nightstand to ensure you will be able to fit all of your current items without clutter. If you find a new space is too big or too small, it may be time to sell some of your things at a garage sale or go shopping to find some new pieces.
Take a few pictures
Snap a few pictures of as many rooms as possible before move-in. This will be a lot more reliable way to gauge what and where the furniture will fit in your new home instead of just relying on your memory. Flip back to your photos for reference as you’re planning the layout and deciding whether to purchase any new items for your new house. These images can also be shown to moving companies when you are describing a specific area or how you want something placed.
