Moving Tips: Create a plan for furniture setups

It is important to measure the rooms and furniture before a move.

It is important to measure the rooms and furniture before a move.

While moving to a new place can have a person only thinking about packing, there are many other important ideas to take in mind. If you can, heading to the new home well in advance to take photos can help your family set-up the furniture plan before you even move in. This could have a huge effect on your family's chances of making the entire process easier.

Make an inventory of items in your home

Due to the stress of moving, you may not take into consideration how much stuff you have, but it may help. When making the switch to a new property, it is important to look for ways to make everything fit and work well together. Taking note of everything in your house will give you an idea of what is needed and where you can put it.

Take pictures and measure rooms

Head over to the new property, and take pictures of every room there. This can help you get an idea of what kind of area you have to work with. In addition, take the measurements of each room, along with stairs and doorways. Keep in mind that you will not only need to fit everything inside the home, but you will have to get it through the doors.

Measure furniture and organize strategies

Now that you know what kind of room you can use in the new home, you should take measurements of your furniture, as this will make sure it will not only be able to get in the home - if it can't be dismantled - but it can also fit comfortably in the rooms. Then, by taking a notebook, you can draft out every room to see how you want everything situated. You don't have to be a math whiz or a perfect artist. This process can be fun and can really give a good idea of what your new home will look like.

Stick to your strategy

It is important to not give up on your strategy once you do move. Getting everything into the home and putting it in the right places is the only way to truly figure out if your ideas can be put in motion. However, once you get your furniture in each room, you can move it around and find your perfect home furniture scenario.
