You have finally moved into your new home, have brought all your things inside, and are now ready to start unpacking and organizing your new home, but now you are wondering where to start. Moving can be incredibly stressful, and it can be hard to think clearly due to being so tired after the move. If thatâ€™s the case, the best thing that you can do is to rest first. You should relax for a little bit and make sure that you have fully recovered your physical strength before you start unpacking and organizing your new home. To make it easy for you to organize your new home, here are a few tips that will help.
Start Unpacking the Big Stuff
Having been in the moving industry for a very long time, we have seen firsthand the number of mistakes that many people make when it comes to unpacking. A common mistake that most people make is that they start unpacking the smaller boxes first. Thatâ€™s not a wise idea by any means. Instead, start off by placing the bigger items, like furniture, around your new home. Set up the sofa sets, chairs and tables, refrigerator, microwave, and of course, the beds. Itâ€™s important that you first give some sort of a shape to your place. Once you have put the bigger furniture in place and have plugged the appliances in, you can then focus on the smaller things.
Start with the Bathroom
After taking care of the furniture, you should begin with the basic essentials, such as the bathroom. Find the boxes that contain your bathroom essentials like the bathroom tissues, soaps, shampoos, body washes, shower curtains, bath mats, etc., and put it all in your bathroom. Itâ€™s highly recommended that you ask the moving company to load these boxes right at the end so that they are the first to be removed from the van.
Move to the Kitchen
Next up, you should unpack the boxes that hold your kitchen items. Neatly stack up the plates, the spoons, and all other kitchen essentials to give shape to the kitchen. Itâ€™s important that you move from the bathroom to the kitchen, as these are the two most important rooms in the whole house. Moreover, thereâ€™s a lot of delicate stuff in your kitchen, so you should unpack it with care to avoid any sort of breakage.
Unpack the Fabrics
Once you are done with all of the essentials, you should then start unpacking the fabric items. Be careful that you donâ€™t tear anything. Put up the curtains or blinds at the end so that you donâ€™t feel encumbered. This way, you will be able to make sure that everything is neatly unpacked and put in their respective positions. Make sure you carefully dispose of all the used boxes and donâ€™t just stack them outside your place. Fold the cartons and the boxes and then store them neatly in case you need them again.
