Relocation: 4 Tips to make the day after moving easy for you

Moving out is never easy. But what is more difficult is adjusting to a new house with your belonging packed in boxes. Here are a few tips to make the day and days after moving easier for you.

1.    Always unpack your bedroom furniture first
When you move in a new place, it is given that you will be living out of boxes for a few weeks. What makes the process easier is if you have some private space where you can go to relax. That is why it is a good idea to unpack your bedroom furniture first. The best way to do this is to load it on the moving truck last. This was it will be the first thing in your new home.

2.    Assemble your bed first
Moving is tiring and what you will need the most after a tiring day is a place to lay your head. Right after the packers unload your boxes, take some time to assemble your bed and make it. This way you will have a comfortable bed waiting for you at the end of a long day.

3.    First meal in the new house
It is often hard to cook in the new house on the moving day. The kitchen is not assembled and grocery is not shopped for. Here is a tip to make it easier for you: Load a casserole or a slow cooker with food with you when you are moving and start cooking it as soon as you reach your new home. This way you do not have to take the effort to go and eat outside after a hard day.

4.    Use a laundry basket to store toiletries
An overnight bag might be too small for all your toiletries and you might have to dig around to find exactly what you need.  A better idea is to put all your toiletries in your laundry basket which is bigger. This makes it easier to find what you are looking for.

5 Artsy Storage Ideas you can implement at Home

The Artsy Shelf
This shelf is an art exhibit by Ian McDonald and we are really inspired by how simplistic, functional and beautiful it is. What looks like a mish mash of odd bits, really just comes alive when put together. It makes us want to reclaim old bits of storage and recreate something like this.

The Artistic Way of storing firewood
Gone are the days when you need to store firewood in the basement and lug them up the stairs on cold winter days. You can now place firewood in your living room and jam wooden crates randomly between the wood. We’re big fans of firewood!

Pipes can be beautiful too!
Pipes are ugly no longer. Gone are the days when designers would hide pipes behind walls or ceilings. Using pipes in design can be classy and fun. Look at this beautiful shelf created with a frame made of pipe.  It creates the required symmetry in the room and gives it a wonderful artsy feel.

The Hanging branch
Bring a slice of the wild in your home by suspending a big strong piece of wood from your ceiling and using it as a clothes rack. This beautiful and minimalistic rack is also a great way of showing off your designer coats and fur.
