5 Important Things To Do Before Moving Into Your New Home
Moving into the home of your dreams is once in a lifetime experience, and you don't want to ruin it by making the wrong choices and taking the wrong steps.
There are several phases you have to go through when you’re moving to a new home like planning, packing and moving. Even after you move, you’ve to face even greater challenges like unpacking all your stuff and throwing away the useless things. That's why in this article we’ll show the most important steps you should take before moving to your new house.
Whether you hire an expert to do the painting job or choose to paint by yourself, this needs to be done when the rooms of your new home are still empty. Empty rooms are a lot easier to paint, and you don’t have to worry about messing up anything.
Clean up your room first and then finish the painting job well ahead of setting the furniture. This allows the paint to settle down and the scent goes away before you move in. Do the painting yourself or hire a professional crew to speed up the things. Make the color scheme of your house according to your furniture's color.
Upgrade the Electrical:
If you’re moving into a house that you planned, you might already have all the power ports and electrical outlets that you want. But moving into a new house requires you to double check the wiring and upgrade all the power outlets to customize them according to your needs.
Before moving in, decide where all of the TVs, ovens and other appliances would go and then upgrade accordingly. Hire an electrician that is licensed and bonded so you know it's going to be up to the local codes. The last thing you want is a bad electrical job causing problems down the road.
Re-Key All Of The Doors:
You never know how many people have duplicate keys of your old house's locks. That is why we suggest changing every lock of your house especially if you’ve just bought an old house to move in.
Re-Keying all of the locks would give you peace of mind; you can freely go on a trip without the fear of a neighbor or ex-owner entering your private property without your permission.
Prepare Your Garage/ Store Room:
Do you use your garage to park your car? Or do you use it as a storeroom for all of the useless stuff? Either way, you should get the garage/storeroom of your new house ready before moving in. Because you’ll probably need to store some of the packed boxes from your old house.
Mark all the boxes containing useless stuff as “Storage,” load them on a separate truck and fill the storage first, before setting up rest of your house. This will help you keep things nice and tidy.
Get The Closets Ready:
Getting custom closet organizers installed and ready is another great thing when you’re planning to move with all your stuff. Hire a team of experts; they’re really quick in installing the closet organizers and generally takes only a day or less. If you're on a budget you can go to your local home improvement store and easily save some money by installing them yourself.
Custom closets come in handy when you're looking to organize and keep your clothing neet and tidy.
