Congratulations! You’ve successfully executed your move and are living in your new house. But, how do you make it feel like a home? Follow these simple tips, and you’ll soon feel settled.
For many of us, deep cleaning feels like a chore, but it will help you feel more settled. If you have the chance, start cleaning before you make the move. Otherwise, make the time to work around the furniture and the boxes.
Once you’ve scrubbed out the nooks and crannies of the house, you’ll feel in a much better position to start organizing. It will be well worth the effort.
Sometimes, it’s the everyday comforts that make us feel established.
Don’t forget to pack your clean sheets and bedding in an “open first” box so that you have them immediately when you get to the new house. Make up the beds first so that at the end of a long moving day you will have a place to lay your tired body.
Light some of your favorite scented candles to fill your home with a familiar aroma that will have you creating new memories in your home.
Stick to Your Regular Routine
If you used to wake up in your old house and wander around with a coffee, then get everything in place so that you can do that in your new home.
If you used to throw your keys on the hallway table, then make sure that table is in place as well.
Recreating a routine will help you feel settled. Remember, you can always change it later.
