First things first- moving into a new home

When you move into a new house there is always so much you want to accomplish.  There are a few things you should put at the top of your list to get settled and start making your house a home.

Deep Clean-

Cleaning your new home is the first thing you should do so that you feel you are entering a shiny new place. It’s a great way to help you feel comfortable and is also gives you a chance to see the home at every angle so you can start coming up with decorating ideas.

Fresh Paint-

What is the fastest way to make your house feel fresh?  A coat of paint will do the trick. Consider the lighting in the room when choosing colors and try to make a nice contrast with the trim.

Add Light-

Mirrors, lamps, and overhead light fixtures will brighten up dark spaces and will make them feel larger.

Get to know your storage space-

The feeling of having tons of belongings to unpack when you move into a new home can be overwhelming, but   organizing some storage space as soon as you move in will help you quickly sort through things. Look for interesting nooks to turn into storage space like an indent in the bathroom or an opening at the end of a hallway.
