For those of you who have ever moved, you know how stressful and long the entire process can be. Once you end up selling your current home and signing paperwork for the new one, the actual task of moving has just started. If you’ve accumulated a collection of beautiful luxury furniture over the years, there’s no doubt that you’re going to want to hold on to a number of items. However, your new home won’t have the same spacing in every room as your current one, which means you need to think about how you’ll take advantage of each room in your new home.
What To Do With Your Luxury Furniture During a Move
It’s going to be difficult to try and map out how your new home will look without having all the different pieces in place, but there are a few things you can do prior to and during the move to help.
Gauge Your Current Luxury Furniture Situation
Long before the movers come to your home, you should be really be looking at each piece of furniture you have and deciding whether or not it’s something you want to bring into your new home. Initially, really just go based off of looks. If you have a sofa with its fair share of use over the years, and now it’s beginning to show its age, this is a great opportunity to consider looking into a new custom sofa. Definitely do the same for other large pieces that you have. Furniture is the last thing you should have loyalty to, especially in a big move. You do want to take cost into consideration, but effectively planning a budget will give you flexibility to leave behind the pieces you can live without.
Find Out Which Rooms Have a Big Space Discrepancy
Once you have a better idea about the pieces you’re bringing along, you need to recognize how much room arrangement itself is changing. For example, maybe in your current home you have a large living room where you could utilize a more open floor plan. However, in your new home the living room might be smaller in favor a larger spaces elsewhere. Start anticipating which pieces are ‘must have’ in the new space, and then you can start to label certain pieces for the movers. That way, they’ll know where to take each piece, making your life much less stressful the day of the move.
Go Through Trial & Error
No matter how much you plan, sometimes things don’t fall into place the way you imagined. A great tip when moving is coordinate which pieces you want the movers to unload first in your home. For example, you perhaps you were debating which room a particular sectional would look best in. Once the movers arrive, make sure they bring that piece into the room so you can actually see how it looks. If you notice immediately that it’s not going to be a good fit (physically or aesthetically) you can switch to plan B. Work with your movers to make sure the largest pieces are in place where you need them to be before they start importing the rest of your furniture.
Give Your New Home New Life With Luxury Furniture
As you get settled into your new house, it will begin to feel more and more like a home. Luxury furniture, both old and new, will really help set the mood, and create a welcoming and warm environment you can come back to every day.
