Did you know that it takes approximately 182 days to unpack after moving into a new home, according to Story House? If you’re in the process of selling a home and moving or settling into a new one, there are a few tips to keep in mind to help unpack efficiently. Knowing how to efficiently unpack can help you to make the most of the new living space you have available without wasting time.
Assess the Layout of Your New Home
Consider the layout of your new home as you determine where to place all of your packed and moved boxes. In some cases, you may have the ability to downsize or place boxes in storage to eliminate clutter in your new home.
Take the time to first unpack all of your home’s essentials. This can include necessary appliances and cookware that you use regularly, as well as toiletries and clothing items you need to wear to work.
Place Labeled Boxes Where They Belong
Whenever you are moving to a new location, it’s advisable to label all of the boxes you intend to take with you during the move. Once you have arrived at your destination, place your boxes in designated rooms to help save time later on, once you begin to unpack.
Take it One Room at a Time
Take a deep breath once you move into your new home. Focus on unpacking one room at a time to avoid feeling stressed, overwhelmed, and burned out.
Turn to Professional Unpacking Services
One of the fastest ways to unpack after a move is to turn to professional unpacking services. Unpacking services specialize in unpacking boxes and putting furniture as well as home decor away after a move. A reputable and trustworthy unpacking company will provide you with references, portfolios, as well as a list of services that are provided ahead of time.
Just because you have moved into a new home does not mean you need to live in clutter or in a space filled with packed boxes. By taking the time to assess each room’s needs and functionality, you can begin to unpack efficiently to enjoy all of your new space without a hassle.
