How to Feel More At-Home in a New House

Posted on January 9, 2018 at 6:00 PM

Moving into a new home can be a daunting task! For some, it may be their first time moving and for others they may have moved multiple times, but even if you had a good system, there is still lots to be done. However, there are a few things that you can implement to make yourself feel right at home when moving into a new house. Today, we'll break down five of those things.

Organize Your Closet First

When moving, items can get a little disorganized. The last thing you want is to wake up and have to find what you're going to wear for the day. By organizing your closet first, you can easily find exactly what you want to wear and start your day. This creates less hassle in the mornings, clearing your mind and letting you transition to other important things that need to be done in the house. Plus, organizing your closet can help make the house more personalized.

Create a Daily Routine

This step can be especially useful to hoeowners with more than one property because it is location-neutral which means it can be done anywhere at anytime. When moving into your new home, try to mimic the routine you had before you moved. This means you should try to wake up, eat breakfast, dress, shower, and so on around the same time each day. Having a specific routine that is the same regardless of where you are at will save you a lot of time, allowing you to use that time on other things that need to be done in the house.

Install a Home Security System

By installing a home security system, you'll ensure that your family is safe and secure in their new environment. Moving to a new neighborhood can be tough for families, especially if they don't know their surroundings. Installing a system will create less worry for your family and will ultimately be a good investment for the time you spend in your home and while you are away.

Unpack Favorites First

By unpacking your favorite items first, you'll instantly create a better bond with your new home. This is because your favorites give your home a more personal touch and will help you settle in more quickly. Prioritize unbreakable items, since you don't want to break your favorite decorative things later in the unpacking process.

Overall, these are four great tips to implement if you want to feel more at home in a new house. Some work better than others, but I would try all of them.
