No matter how excited you are to move, making a brand new space feel like home can be a challenge. Especially when you’re surrounded by boxes and can’t get to your couch. And sometimes waiting for that foreign feeling to fade requires a little too much patience. Here’s how you can start to feel settled in and happy — even while you’re living amidst boxes.
Start with the closet.
Most think to start with common spaces first but tackle the closet immediately to add ease to your daily routines. Unpacking starts to feel tedious after a few boxes and Mondays are hard enough without having to dig through it all to find that one perfect shirt.
Bring out all your favorite items.
A sure way to add instant coziness to any new space is to light candles and play music that you love. Before you pack, create a small box of all of your favorite items so you can bring them all out from the start. This will add some familiarity to your home.
Use your kitchen.
Unpacking all of the cups and dishes to prepare a meal for the family is a great way to break in the kitchen. Many opt for take-out the first few nights because moving can seem overwhelming. But this will also help you find useful places for your basic kitchen items and will add a lot more convenience to cooking.
