While many people prefer shifting their belongings and unpacking and arranging things on their own, these days there are professional Movers and Packers Kolkata who do everything for a fee. All said and done, there’s nothing like unpacking and arranging things on your own after you move to your new address. It saves a lot of money and also you can take your own time and arrange things safely without damaging anything.
Doing up your new home is a meticulous process, but it’s easy once you’ve charted out a plan beforehand. So just check out the pointers below for a trouble-free unpacking and re-arranging goods after home shifting:
Start by cleaning up your new home as well as the most important goods. That might include your bed, furnishings, upholsteries as well as other essential furniture. Making your new home dust-free is your first priority. Unpacking and arranging would be a cakewalk if you keep your home cleaned up in advance.
Many times, people are excited about shifting to a larger space and end up unpacking the non-essential items and later have a tough time struggling to find the needed ones. Hence, write the name of contents on individual boxes. Unpack the essential items first. This will make arranging things much easier.
Keep washroom clean and usable. You can do it ahead of time or even after you move in. Check the water supply, faucets, showers, tubs and electrical plug points and repair immediately if you find anything faulty. Restore all bathroom accessories like mugs, buckets, toiletries and towels.
Kitchen is one of the biggest priorities after you shift to your new home. Unless you unpack and arrange your kitchen items, it would be difficult for you to cook food for your family or kids. Make sure you arrange for clean and hygienic drinking water first. Wash pots and pans in warm soapy water before you use them.
Next comes your bedroom. You might feel exhausted after all that unpacking and arranging things. So organizing your bedroom is a must. Set up the bed properly and after clean up, finish it up with fresh bed sheets, covers, pillows and curtains. Doing up the dining space is just as important as your kitchen, so set up the dining area so that you can have your meal without any problem. Keep the dining table and chairs arranged.
Managing the wardrobe requires time and patience. So keep clothes and other wardrobe accessories in suitcases or boxes until you have ample time to arrange everything.
Lastly, set up other important home appliances like TV, fridge, washing machine, music system and others. Keep them at relevant places. After you’ve fixed up everything else, unpack home decorating items like vases, photo frames, paintings and sculptures and keep them at your place of choice.
Adhering to these simple rules will save you lot of time and unwanted hassles after relocating to your new home. However, things might not always be in the same order since each home is different. Don’t make unpacking a disaster, but a fun time. The first rule of the thumb is getting organized and making a plan.
