Moving into a new home can be exciting, but it can also be stressful, especially when you don’t know what to expect. Will you have enough furniture? What about outlets for your electronics?
Here’s a checklist of important furniture items to consider getting when moving into your new home. Be sure to head over to the Koala Living furniture store which you can also browse online, if you need help adding these essential pieces to your living room, bedroom and kitchen!
Couches are the epicenter of your living room. Whether you’re watching TV, playing games, or lounging with your family, this is where you’ll be doing it. It’s important to find the right one that not only fits your aesthetic but also offers the comfort and durability you need. Most importantly, don’t forget to measure before you shop so that nothing’s too tight when you get home!
The first thing to consider is the bed. You’ll want to make sure you have enough room in your bedroom and that the mattress will fit on the frame of your choice. That’s why it’s best to buy the bed before you move in so you know everything will work out when it comes time to sleep there.
Once you’ve found the perfect bed for your bedroom, measure its size and then head to a furniture store with beds in stock. The goal here is to find out if they have anything similar. If not, some stores offer delivery or you can order the bed online. Whatever works for you!
A dresser is an important piece of furniture because it will hold all your clothes, toiletries, and other personal items. You may need more than one dresser depending on how many bedrooms or people live in the home (each person should have their own), but each family member should be able to comfortably open their drawers without hitting anyone else in the process. It’s also a good idea to purchase drawer organizers while at the same time keeping things neat inside them as well.
A chair is an indispensable item in your living room. A good-looking, upholstered chair will make you feel comfortable and relaxed. It is the perfect place to sit and read or watch TV after a long day at work. A chair with arms provides extra support, while one without arms makes it easier to get out of the seat.
The type of fabric on the chair can also impact how you feel when sitting down. Choose between leather, velvet, suede, microfiber, or cotton fabric for different degrees of comfort and style.
The coffee table
If you’re moving, one of the most important pieces of furniture you need to purchase is a coffee table. Not only does it serve as an attractive centerpiece to your living space, but it provides essential functionality as well. First and foremost, a coffee table is great for putting things on! Whether that be drinks, snacks, or remotes – there are few better places around the house to set down your clutter than on top of this piece of furniture.
Coffee tables also typically have storage spaces underneath them which makes them handy for stashing away DVDs or remote controls without taking up valuable real estate elsewhere in the room. And finally, some people like to place plants on their coffee tables to give their homes a more natural feel. Regardless of what you choose to do with yours, the beauty of this item is that it can adapt to changing needs over time
If you’re the type of person who likes to cook, then you’ll need a place to prepare your meals. You can buy an all-inclusive dining set that includes a table and chairs or just buy them separately. The table should be at least 6 feet long so it will seat at least four people comfortably, but if you have more than that in your household, then go ahead and get one that seats six.
Whatever you do, stay away from glass-top tables because they are notoriously hard to clean and maintain. Instead, opt for wood tables that are easier to keep looking nice without any work on your end. Once you have your table, it’s time to think about what type of chairs you want.
There are three main options: upholstered, leather, or metal (chairs with cushions). Metal is typically less expensive than either leather or upholstery; however, leather and upholstery look nicer and feel better when sitting on them.
If you are moving out of state, or even out of the country, sometimes storage units can be worth it. If you have items that need to be stored before the move and will not be used, this is an option.
It is also a good idea to store items if you are moving in the middle of winter or summer as you want to avoid storing furniture outdoors during these times. In some cases, storage units can help with organization and make things easier on the back once you get to your new home.
For some people, the first thing they do when they move into their new home is to change out the welcome mat. This is not necessary, but it can make you feel more at home and bring in a little bit of your personality. You can also use this as an opportunity to start fresh with your personalized message.
Some people like to give themselves a pat on the back and say welcome or welcome home. Others might decide on something more personal, such as Welcome to our humble abode! Whatever you choose, it’s sure to be an important addition to your front door!
It’s finally time to move out of your old place and into your new one. There are so many things that you need to do before the day arrives, but first things first: You need to pick up some welcome mats! It might seem like an odd thing to buy when you’re in the middle of packing and moving, but it will be necessary once you arrive at your new home.
Moving into your new home is an exciting time. You will want to make sure you have the right furniture pieces to make it feel like home. You can use this checklist as a guide to help you figure out what pieces you need and where to find them. So go ahead and get started on making your new home feel like home!
