House Move: A Smooth Check In

There’s a sense of excitement that beats like a giant heart at the center of a house move. It’s the infinite possibilities of a new beginning, the challenge of an unknown place, the relief of leaving the old and broken behind. Naturally, there is always a lot of stress that goes with it: Have you packed everything? Will the kids like the new place? Are you done cleaning the old house? Are you sure you haven’t forgotten anything? Moving house is about balancing the excitement and the stress with grace and agility. But once you’ve started the machine, there is no way back. So keep in mind some steps that may not seem essential at first but that will make your life a lot easier if you follow them.

Keep Everyone In The Loop

It may seem like a good idea at the start not to worry the kids with the idea of moving house. Naturally, moving house is stressful for adults, but you should always include your children in the preparations. Children will need time to accept the idea that they will be living in a new home, so get them in the loop about your project as soon as possible. Don’t wait until you begin to visit houses to let them know. If possible, try to take them to the essential visits, such as when you go for a second or a third visit to the same place to help them visualize. At the same time, open up about the subject of moving house with your suppliers. Some might be able to provide useful advice on locations that they continue to supply. Similarly, some suppliers are happy to help you switch to the best partners in your new locations if their services can’t follow you.

The Emergency Luxury

As you move in, the first couple of weeks will require some emergency solutions to make you feel at your ease before you can take your marks in the new place. So it’s important to create a sense of luxury with the little things that you can bring home rapidly and at an affordable cost. For a start, remember the pleasure of a fresh cup of tea. There’s nothing worse than finding white scales in your freshly brewed tea, unfortunately, hard water is very common. So, start by testing the quality of your water as you move in. If you find that it is too hard, allow yourself a taste of luxury with a water softener. Not sure which one to pick? Have a look at the database of Fleck water softener reviews and ratings from actual customers to gain a better understand of the solutions available. Another great idea to bring a feeling of ease and comfort is to buy a high-quality coffee machine. Is there any better feeling than a fresh cup of cappuccino?


The Test Of Ownership

The last step in creating your space in the new home is the start decorating. Your home décor is more than a case of vanity: It’s the time to express yourself in your house and to give a personality to each room. There’s nothing like a colourful wallpaper with an elegant carpet to bring a room to life. If you are the adventurous type, create an ambiance by adding decorative items such as cushions, frames, rug, potted plants and even a pair of curtains. Take ownership and show your colours!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
