Moving into an Irvine, California, home for sale is a stressful activity, but unpacking does not have to be. In fact, there are a few simple things you can do to make unpacking an easy and painless activity. Here are a few tips to get you started.
Unpack the Most Important Rooms First
You always want to start with the bedrooms, particularly those of your children and elderly relatives. Freshly made beds will make all the difference when you soundly fall asleep the first night in your new abode. Be sure the linen is freshly laundered; you may even want to give it one more rinse with extra fabric softener before making the beds. The next step is to fix up the bathrooms a bit; the rest of your house can wait.
Make a To-Do List
Make a list of every living space in your home; you may want to use a smartphone app such as ToDoist. Each room must be treated as a task. You should note all items that are supposed to be placed in each room so that you do not move away from it until you have completed each task.
Prepare Your Pets
If you feel that moving is stressful, you have no idea how nerve-wracking it can be for your canine and feline companions. This is when it really makes sense to book a spot at a kennel or pet sitting service, at least for the first day and night of your move. The disorganized mess that is visible while unpacking is not something that your pets will enjoy; they would prefer to see you comfortable and somewhat settled in so that they can regain their sense of familiarity.
Function Before Style
You should not worry about decorating or landscaping until you have taken care of the basics, which means your bathrooms followed by your kitchen. If you attempt to decorate on the fly, you may end up changing your mind sooner than you wish.
