Moving From an Apartment to a House? We List 5 Tips to Have You Settling in with Ease!

Two story houseMoving from an apartment to a house marks an exciting new chapter in life – possibly with kids, a garden and lots of new space to enjoy! However with all of this excitement, the process can also be a little overwhelming.

While a home might require some upgrades, which can be expensive. The good news is there is no reason to fear a move to a house. As long as you’ve factored in some added costs associated with a house, the rest of it is fun and invigorating. Here are some tips to have you settling into your new home with ease:

  1. Call in the removalists

Imagine moving all the furniture from your apartment into your new home without the stresses or strains typically associated with moving house. Well, with the help of a professional removalist like Wridgways, you can! Accredited removalists generally have many, many years of home moving experience and will be able to complete the move to your house in the minimum of time. They can also offer added help with things like a vacate clean in your apartment, connecting utilities in your new house and a professional valet unpacking service.

  1. Filling your house with furniture:

The extra space in your new home means you will need new furnishings to fill it. From the moment you know you are moving to a house, start researching ideas for styling so that you can make sure you stick to a theme throughout the house rather than picking up pieces from very different styles as you see them.

Try to these places to pick up great quality cheap or even free furniture items, ready for your new home:

  1. Give it a touch of paint:

One of the first and most exciting things you can do when moving to your new house is to play around with colour. A bright, bold colour can bring a room to life, instantly having you feel at home. If you don’t want to paint an entire room, consider providing splashes of colour with details like cushions.

  1. Stock up your kitchen:

If moving from an apartment chances are it came with a relatively small kitchen, so you could now find yourself with extra space for those appliances you always wanted. Don’t rush out and buy everything straight away. Instead, get a feel for your kitchen and only buy what you really need, and what will fit! You don’t want to end up with appliances that never get used.

  1. Enjoy your new garden:

One of the biggest perks of moving into a house is the outdoor garden space you can now enjoy, especially in summer! If this is the first time you’ve had your own garden it’s a good idea to make a list of items in order of priority that you will need. Things like lawn mowers and an outdoor table are probably your top priorities and others such as plants and a barbecue can be added to your garden once you can afford it.
