or Most of us have had to make the move from one house to the other at certain times in our life, and one thing that we can actually recall from such an experience is that it was quite an herculean task and one that we might not want to do again if possible.
But at the end of the day, we might not be able to put off such a project as there are usually situations that calls for that, for instance, moving to a newly purchased house.
There are quite a number of things that you might want to keep in mind when moving to that new space.
This article will seek to enlighten you on some of the things you might want to consider before you make that final move to that house
• Checkout for places and fittings that might need repairs
You want to identify certain parts of the house that could use some repair, factor in the cost, decide whether it is a minor or a major thing, what the cost-implication of making those repairs might look like, decide whether some of those revamps can be put off for a later day with little or no effect on everyday life or if they require urgent fixing.
• Clean up your new residence
While I was leaving my old house for example, and was leaving for a new house for sale in Lekki, I was thoughtful enough to clean up the rooms, and at least make the room pleasant for the incoming occupant.
But you would not always be lucky to have your new house cleaned for you in advance. But even though your house seems to be in good shape after you have it, it is expedient to still do your own general cleaning in form of washing the floor, moping and cleaning, wiping off cobwebs, cleaning out closets, shelves and wardrobes, making out time to wash up plumbing in form of sinks, pipes e.t.c
While carrying out this process, depending on the level of difficulty you are facing based on cleaning your new house to prepare it for habitation, it is advised to use effects like gloves or nose masks.
• Switch up the locks
If you are moving to your brand-new house, it might be unnecessary to change the locks. But more often, in the case of moving into an apartment formerly occupied, it is advised to change the locks as soon as you have the house deal done as copies of keys to your house might actually be with the former occupants of the house, your landlord and possibly your realtor.
So you want to secure your house by removing the old locks majorly for the outside doors and replacing them with stronger, new ones.
• Painting your new home
Chances are regardless of the paint currently used in your house, you might have a different idea or taste when it comes to painting. You might want to paint your rooms in monochrome or different colors, adopting a main color and an accent, or you might want to just add a little more detail to your color composition.
Painting your new home can come with a little technicality and stress, as such you might want to leave it in the hands of professionals, as opposed to doing it yourself.
But if you are sure you want to do it yourself, you can simply take a tutorial on painting your house yourself and developing your strategy to complete your painting.
You also want to figure out how to store your different properties and find other alternatives in case the closets available are not enough to meet your needs, such as setting up adjustable storage like racks or ordering for drawers and other furniture to maximize your storage needs.
