Designing the New House

You got yourself a new house and plan on move in soon. But you might feel the need to freshen up the outlook of your home so that you don’t have to look at the same scenery in the new place as well. It’s time to do some interior designing for the new house, and do it before you start setting relocation dates and looking for moving companies.

Take it upon yourself to visit the new house and look around the empty rooms. Even better if you brought a pen and paper to pen down all the things you want to do with it, or even make a rough sketch of the place, and unleash your creativity. Think hard on what you want from the new place. Make it neutral to accommodate all the family’s tastes, or personalize it room by room. Have a theme for the place and go with it. You can browse the web for a variety of ideas which you can implement during this endeavor. There are so many options to choose from – only the limits of your imagination can serve as some kind of barrier. Have a neutral colored guestroom or living room. Make your own bedroom themed to reflect your personality. Have a vibrant-colored kids’ room for your children. Have a darker shaded study for a more melancholy and pensive feel.

You may opt to think less about colors and more about décor. Make the kitchen décor practical. Have everything properly organised so that everything you may need is always in view and at least at an arm’s length away. Make cooking much easier than in your old cluttered kitchen where you had to go through piles of dishes to find that one bowl. Implement some racks and stands for the pans, saltier, and spice stands. Make the living room décor more comfortable. When entertaining guests, they should be able to feel right at home in your comfy new furniture and hospitable atmosphere.

Of course, you should leave some place for the things you will be taking with you. Don’t overthink the interior design of the new house because when the moving company is done you will be left with a bunch of old furniture which you will have nowhere to put and you will be forced to either throw it away, donate it, or spend money on storage space.

Of course, you should coordinate all the changes with the family if you are a family person. Unless your word is law around the house, everybody should be informed before any changes take place, and should probably agree to them. After that, the floor is yours. Start planning, moving things around, repainting, redesigning, go crazy on the new house and make it place you will want to live in forever. Once everything is done, and there is still place to accommodate all the things from the old house, it’s time to call the removal services and start that new chapter in your life.
