So, you’ve moved into your new home. You open the door, step inside and look at the empty space. It’s yours! All you need to do now is fill it with your things. The essentials may be obvious, other stuff, not so much. Here are some hints and tips to make your new house a proper home.
Tools and Repair Stuff
Everyone needs a toolbox so that they can undertake any minor repairs, put up pictures, or put together the furniture. A toolbox should contains these basics.
1. Hammers: both Ball & Claw
2. Screw drivers: Flathead & Phillips of different sizes
6. Small electric Drill & Drill Bits
7. Staple Gun
8. Tape Measure
Now you have your own space, you don’t want the whole world peering in at you! Get some nice curtains or blinds to keep the outside world at bay. make sure you get dark window coverings for your bedroom to keep out early morning light.
Some places come with appliances, some don’t. At the minimum you will need a cooker, a fridge, and a washing machine. If you aren’t very good at cooking, a microwave would be useful too. If your budget is tight, you can pick up second hand and reconditioned appliances for much less than new.
You spend a third of your life in bed sleeping, so it’s little wonder that people think that the bedroom is one of the most important rooms in the house. Make sure that you buy a bed that meets all you needs for a restful night. Good sleep means you perform better. Check out the range of beds from Bedstar to find your perfect night’s sleep.
Linens, Towels and Floor Coverings
Once you have painted your new place, why not buy linen and covers to match? Whether new towels, bed sheets or rugs, a splash of bright new colour can make any house into a home. Simple things like a patterned shower curtain or matching tea towels can really make a room a pleasant place to be.
If you live on your own, and even if you don’t, a pet can make the difference in making your home feel cosy. Check with your landlord if you rent before getting a pet. If dogs and cats aren’t allowed, why not get something smaller, like fish or a hamster?
