Buying items for your new home can turn into a never ending list, especially when you want to make your home look perfect. To relieve this stress it’s a sensible idea to start with the essentials and go from there. But what are considered essential home items? For a little more insight this blog will explain three of the main essential that everyone should have before moving in to a new place.
If you’re moving in to your first home, then it’s likely that you’ll forget about all those small items you use everyday – but you’ll soon remember when you go to reach for it! It’s a good idea to create a small box of miscellaneous items in the run up to moving day, since you won’t have everything properly unpacked for a few days it will come in handy to have these items so you can get on with day to day tasks. Such as:
- Can openers, vegetable peelers
- Cooking utensils, trays and matches
- Pens, scissors and batteries
- Bin liners and light bulbs
- A small tool kit
- Cleaning and laundry products
Bedding and seating
For many people, when they move in to a new property they may have a few weeks until their new furniture arrives, which means sitting on the floor or eating off their laps. To avoid this, make sure you place your order as early as possible, and get stocked on temporary alternatives such as fold up chairs. Your sleeping arrangements are one of the most important things to think about, but if you’re waiting for the delivery of a new bed frame, at least get organised with new and fresh bedding to make your sleep that little but more comfortable.
Storage is needed to keep any home neat and well-organised, and there are a number of ways that you can do this. Perhaps invest in over-door hooks for your coats, scarves and dressing gowns, a shoe rack so you can see exactly what you have or shelving to house all of your books and photographs. Adding any of these to your home will make the place feel a lot more organised, and help you see exactly what you have and where it should go.
