Moving Tips: Select new rooms based on needs

Decide who gets what room based on what each person needs.

Decide who gets what room based on what each person needs.

When your moving company brings your belongings to the new residence, you might benefit from selecting your bedrooms and other areas based on need. This may seem unnecessary, but mapping out where you want to put all of your items could make the move much less stressful.

Deciding on rooms is important

You may benefit significantly from giving the largest room to the parents, as they likely have the most items, as well as the biggest bed. Between clothes, dressers, nightstands and other items that parents typically have in their rooms, this may be the best idea. Additionally, the largest room typically has the most spacious closet, which can make life easier.

You can also take this method and use it for the children's rooms. However, depending on the circumstances, you have a few options. Much of the time, your youngest child may have the smallest amount of belongings out of your whole family, which could default them to the smallest room. However, if you have an older child who is soon to move out, or head to college, giving them the smaller room may be easier. This will allow the younger child to grow further in the bigger room, while the older child will only use their room as a storage area once they move out.

Deciding on the rest of the home

This method can work beyond bedrooms, as well. If one family member needs a workspace, you may be able to prioritize that in this way. If there is one more room intended to be a bedroom, but it needs to be made into an office, this could be a better alternative than keeping office-type items in an area such as a dining room or living room. These areas would be able to then be used for their intended purposes - to host guests.

If you only need one storage area, you may want to decide between the attic or the basement, especially if both are finished areas. This could give you more flexibility in the room selection process, as you may not only keep areas open for future plans, but you could also give everyone a choice they are happier with. Furthermore, it could potentially help you be more creative in your own housing design.
