Once through with relocating to the new home, most people often wonder how to go about organizing their things in the new home. Unpacking and organizing isn’t an easier task either, if it took several weeks to pack, one can expect the organization process to last for some considerable time as well.
In this post, quick tips to bear in mind when unpacking each moving box with the contents into their respective rooms have been highlighted.
After moving the packing boxes into the house, one is likely to be very tired at the moment. Moving fully may not be achieved however if the task is procrastinated after the first day. Unpacking doesn’t have to be done all at once, but considering unpacking several boxes day after another is the way to go. Working with a deadline for unpacking will be very helpful, it can be month or two or even several weeks.
Define the purpose of each room
Assigning various purposes to each room can help in envisioning how to organize the items. All the rooms including bathrooms, hallways, basements and attics should be written down on paper. Giving the rooms their purpose will corral items easily and nicely.
This will ensure that a solid foundation is built in the house so as to welcome any guests as soon as possible. Furniture such as couch, sofas, tables, beds, armoires, dressers, cupboards among other solid furniture should be moved into their respective rooms.
Later on, unpacking smaller items that rest in the larger ones should begin. These include books, sundries, clothing, etc.
Aim for functionality and then decorate
The rooms to start unpacking first are the basic rooms so the sleeping, eating and bathing can be easy. The kitchen, bathroom and bedroom should be unpacked first. Once these rooms are set, focus can be given other rooms within the house. Unpacking the functional items should begin.
