If you have been living in a small apartment for a long time and finally decided to move into a bigger one, this guide is for you. A lot of people who aren’t used to living in big apartments find them very big and spacious and they usually don’t know how to make them look good. There are a lot of things you do and have when you live in a small apartment that you shouldn’t or don’t need to do when you move into a bigger one. If you are going to be moving to a bigger apartment soon, this simple guide is going to make your new start much better.
You still need to declutter despite moving to a bigger apartment
A lot of people who are moving to a bigger apartment from a smaller one don’t find decluttering important. But the truth is, you still need to declutter even though you are moving to a bigger apartment and you will have much more space. Decluttering doesn’t just apply to when you don’t have enough space in your home. Decluttering means throwing away items that you don’t need and use. Why would you want them in your new home?
Hire assistance when moving to a bigger apartment
One thing that always makes moving ten times easier is hiring assistance aka a moving company. You might think that you don’t need help settling down in your new place, but you definitely do. Having a team of professionals who know how to relocate you properly is always a good idea.
Get proper packing supplies
Plenty of people who are moving to small apartments avoid using packing material because it takes up a lot of space. But as you are moving into a bigger apartment, you can and you should use proper packing supplies. You are going to need plastic or cardboard boxes for packing. Plastic boxes are great as you can reuse them. They are also great for storing items. But if you are on a budget, using cardboard boxes is a much better solution as you can find these boxes for free.
You are also going to need a bubble pack, packing peanuts, wrapping paper, tape, tape dispensers, and labels. All these things are going to come in handy. When packing glassware, make sure you use plenty of bubble pack and packing peanuts so it doesn’t break.
Get rid of small furniture
Having a big living room with small furniture is not going to make your home look bigger or better. If you used to live in a small apartment, chances are that your furniture is going to be too small for your new, bigger apartment. You want your new home to look good. One way to do that is to get the furniture that is the right size for your home.
