Anyone who's moved to a new home before knows very well that it takes some time to get used to a different environment. In fact, studies have shown that it takes Brits an average of four months to feel at home in their new house.
Here are some tips that can help speed up the process:
Unpack as soon as possible
Unpacking can be daunting, but the sooner you get it out of the way, the sooner you'll be able to feel settled in and relaxed. Assign a space for the boxes to be placed during the move instead of spreading them out around your new house. This maintains order and helps you stay organised while unpacking without feeling overwhelmed. Also, seeing boxes around your new home for several days or even weeks at a time can cause unnecessary anxiety, so sorting everything out quickly will be a relief.
Organise your bedroom first
The fastest way to help yourself feel right at home in your new residential park home is to sort out your bedroom first. Arranging your clothes in the cupboard and making your bed is important because it'll be ready for when you need to rest.
Unpack your kitchen next
You'll undoubtedly be ready for a cup of tea and a snack after a morning of hard work, so unpacking your kitchen should be done right after the bedroom. Familiarising yourself with your new kitchen is bound to help make you feel at home. You'll find more tips and information about unpacking online.
Add your own personality
Finishing touches that inject your personality into the space help you acknowledge that it is, in fact, your home. You can do this by hanging family photos and your favourite artwork on the walls. Seeing these images around your new home makes it instantly more familiar.
Decorate to your own personal taste
When moving into one of our residential park homes, you don't need to worry about bringing your old furniture or purchasing new furniture as they are already furnished. You do have the ability, however, to decorate it. You can change the curtains and add rugs and decorative ornaments. You may even want to change the light fixtures. This means you get all the fun of decorating without the stress of furnishing.
Have a housewarming party
As soon as you're done unpacking and decorating, have your loved ones come over for a party! Seeing the familiar faces of your beloved family members and close friends will be a wonderful way to immediately start creating new memories in your new home. Plus, you'll get to show it off too!
