There’s no question that moving into a new home is stressful, and when it comes to setting up your space, the scene can be quite overwhelming – you may not know where to begin! Whether you’re moving into a four-bedroom home or studio apartment, there are certain pieces you’ll want to have available right off the bat.
Of course, you’ll remember that you need a mattress and a TV, but there are plenty of other, easily overlooked items that will make your move that much easier if you have them from the get-go.
Many times, moving into a new home involves cleaning from floor to ceiling, and you wouldn’t want to risk unpacking on top of dirt and grime. Cleansing wipes, dusters, and a mop and broom are essential to have when you first step foot into your home. You’ll be able to neaten up your space to your liking and have peace of mind knowing your home is clean enough for the rest of your furniture.
Bedding and towels:
You’re bound to want to clean yourself off and get a good night’s sleep after a hard day of moving, so make sure you have a towel and any other bathing supplies ready when the time comes (this includes a shower curtain!). The same goes for bedding – although you may have moved in your mattress, you’ll have a hard time sleeping comfortably if you don’t have bedding to accompany it! Bring a spare set of sheets and pillow so that you can sleep well.
