Moving to a new house or apartment can definitely be stressful. You have to think about packing or hiring movers, spending money on your new place as well as moving essentials. Almost anyone will agree that moving is no fun. One part of starting anew in a new home that can be fun though, is home decor.
Decorating your new space is a great time to do things you’ve always wanted to do but weren’t able to before. A clean slate. A way to show off your personality. However when moving sometimes things get left behind. And some frequently forgotten moving essentials you already own will be very helpful in decorating your new home! Here are four things you’ll need to make your new home the most beautiful it can be.
Hammer And Nails
Hanging art on your walls is important whether you are a minimalist or thrive in clutter. Anything that can be put in a frame can be hung on walls – from photos to certificates to paintings to posters to flags. Let your imagination run wild with the possibilities and run to the internet for gallery wall ideas. Just don’t forget your hammer and nails! These are some of the most simple tools that will be paramount in hanging stuff on your brand new walls.
Drills and drill bits are also super important and will really come in handy in your new home. You’ll use them to hang shelves and anything else that may be too heavy for a nail to handle. They’re also the best tool for putting together furniture which is a huge aspect of interior decorating.
Even before you start moving stuff in, you’ll find yourself reaching for the measuring tape to figure out what items will fit in which corners of your new home. Do your future self a big favor and make sure it’s one of the first things you bring in the big move.
What good is a hammer and nails to hang all that art on your new walls if you don’t have a level? Make sure you pack yours with the rest of your essential tools so that once you have things hanging up, they’ll all be perfectly straight. You can also use it to check that the floors are all level and that there are no major structural problems.
Don’t make the already tough process of moving even harder on yourself by forgetting to bring essentials that will help make your new place warm and homey. Make interior design your priority and pack those tools first so that you don’t have to end up re-purchasing them later.
