The Top Things You Should Do Before Moving Home

2/21/2018 06:03:00 PM 0 Comments


Not all of us take joy in moving home, I will be honest. Buying and selling a property is stressful, but the actual process of moving is something else entirely. It is hard labour, it is tough, and it can be quite emotional. So there is no doubt that when it comes to this big life change that you start preparing ahead of time to avoid any last minute rush or mistakes on moving day. I wanted to share with you the top things you should do before moving.


Declutter your home of the things you no longer want or need

The longer we stay in a home, the more clutter and things we end up, and so when it comes to moving at the beginning it can feel like an overwhelming task. However, this presents you with an ideal opportunity to declutter your home of all the things you no longer want or need. There might be things you still need to keep and store, that you just don’t need right now, so a quick search online for fantastic storage units near me could provide you with the ideal solution. Decluttering now will help you take less when you move, and start off fresh in your new place.

Start packing ahead of time to make sure you prepared

The sooner you start packing, the easier the process will be. There will be many things in your home that you don't necessarily need right away, that you could begin to pack. Some of your clothes or shoes maybe, even ornaments and smaller pieces of furniture. This way, packing won't seem like such an overwhelming task.

Ensure you collect all the keys for your old place

We can often forget who has what key, so take time to collect any keys from your partner or even parents or friends you may have lent one too. Gather them up so you know exactly where they are ready for the moving day. You might also need to think about keys for other doors in your home and even window lock, ensure everything is there.

Have a plan

It is vital to have a plan for moving day. From the moment you want to start moving, the journey to the new place, and even when to start unpacking. Having a plan and being organized, even when it comes to occupying children or preparing food and drinks for the day, will keep you going on schedule. However, it doesn’t need to be something too complex.

Pack an essentials box for the first night

Finally, the first night can be exciting, but you also need to ensure that you have what you need to make it through the first 24 hours. Toiletries, a change of clothes, a kettle, some cups even. This is when a separate essentials box could come in handy, enabling you to function and get through the first day with ease.

I hope that these tips help you prepare in advance for when moving home.

The Secrets To a Modern Home

2/07/2018 08:24:00 PM 0 Comments


If you haven’t redecorated your home for a while, then it could be time to give it the little update that it needs. While home decor trends don’t change too quickly, there are some things that can really date the look and feel of your home if you let them. It might be time to think about updating and modernizing the colors used in your home, as well as one or two of the pieces of furniture. The thing is that you don’t have to spend a lot to update and modernize your home, unless you really want to, of course. But a few small changes can really have a spectacular impact on the look and feel of your home.

So if this sounds like you and you haven’t done anything to your home for a while, then here are some tips and tricks and ideas to help you change the look of your home and make it more stylish and modern.


Change Flooring

There are some materials for flooring that can really date your home. They can make it look much duller and make it seem a bit cheap and retro. If you’re going for a retro vibe then it would work. But I doubt that most people are. So it is time to step away from the over-patterned carpets for starters. Yes, they can hide a multitude of stains. But they make most rooms look really drab, and can even make the room look smaller if they are very colorful or patterned. The same thing goes for floorings like laminate and melamine. They can make a home look cheaper and over time, they can get quite shiny looking, making them look tacky, rather than funky and modern. Instead, opt for more natural and organic materials like hardwood flooring for a more fresh and modern look.

Ditch the Unnecessary

With the Swedish mantra of ‘lagom’ all the rage at the moment, it is no surprise that decluttering is going to feature if you want to modernize your home. Lagom is all about having just enough, in all aspects of your life. And for a home, that means not having unnecessary things around the house. Whether that is by getting rid of unnecessary trinkets and ornaments or getting rid of unnecessary furniture. If you have not been able to face throwing something away before, then it could have found itself in a different room, rather than being thrown out. But if the hallway doesn’t need to have a sofa in, for instance, then you should move it out. Clear your home of the unnecessary things, and you might even make some extra cash if you sell them while you’re at it.

Make Your Home a Smart Home

Being able to make your home updated with tech, is a really good way to modernize your home. What you choose is up to you, but here are some ways that tech could upgrade your home:

  • Using a device like a Google Home or Amazon Echo can give your home a modern edge, and it doubles up as a timer, search engine, speaker, music player, and weatherman, to name just a few.
  • Make your garage more modern by making it a garage that just opens with the click of a button, like Gliderol garage doors, for instance. If you can just click a button when you’re approaching it, rather than having to get a lock and key, then it is a quick update that will also make your life simpler.
  • Invest in CCTV or a camera on your door. You can screen who is at your door, and make your home a safer place to be. It is a good way to deter thefts too, so can be an investment that is worth making.
  • Upgrading your home heating systems to use something like Nest is a good way to keep on track of your heating. It makes it much more efficient too, as well as easier to use. If you’re out and the heating is off, you can use your smartphone to switch it on so that the house is warm when you get back.


Use Glass and Mirrors

In a home that wants to look more modern, then it is a good idea to not underestimate the power that glass and mirrors can have in the home. To start off with, mirrors can make a home look larger than it is, as well as airy and light. Glass adds a new perspective, especially if new windows are added. In places like a bathroom, think about a glass shower screen, rather than a drab shower curtain, for example. In this instance, glass makes the room instantly more stylish and modern yet it is still functional.

Choose Sustainability

A modern home wouldn’t be complete without a few pieces of furniture or bits in the home that haven’t been reclaimed or recycled. Is there anything that you already have that you could turn into something else in the home? Is there anything that you could make a few changes to, like adding in some reclaimed beams to the ceiling of your home, or creating a chair out of some wooden beams. Choosing things that are more sustainable, rather than quick and cheap and fast furniture, is a good way to modernize your home and bring it up to date. It is the future!

Experiment with Color

When you think of a modern home it can often be mistaken for a minimalist home. But monochrome and practically empty isn’t the modern look that will work for everyone. So don’t be afraid to experiment with color. You could have neutral walls and then add feature art pieces that are bright and of a variety of colors. Rugs, cushions, and throws are other great ways to modernize the home.

Have you got any plans to update your home this year? Or what modern features do you already have in the home? It would be great to hear that you think and what you’ve got planned.
