How to Make A New House Feel Like A Home

Panda's Paws For Thought

No matter how excited you are to move into your new place, your first few weeks will probably feel foreign and a little strange. Your new home will be filled with someone else’s tastes, styles and memories so it is only normal that you are going to be a little home sick for the house you have just left behind.

So how do you go about making it your own and turning your house into a home?

Below are 5 quick hacks to turning the comfort factor up to 10:

Making Your New House Feel Like Home

Regardless of whether this is your first or your third, purchasing a new house is a really big deal. Not only is it a big financial move, but it’s a new environment – a place where you and your loved ones will need to create new memories. For most people, it can be pretty difficult to get used to this. Not only are you letting go of your old home or apartment but if you aren’t purchasing a brand new home, you’re walking into a space that holds someone else’s memories. How do you go about making it your own? How do you make your house a home?

Spend Time There – Everyone is so busy these days that by the time you get completely settled it, you may already be swamped with running back and forth between the office, the gym, PTA meetings, etc. Take some time during the week to just stay in and enjoy time in your new home with your family. If you treat this new space as a simple place to rest your head at night, you’ll never truly feel at home.

  1. Unpack your boxes

This sounds like a given, but many people get into the habit of living out of boxes rather than putting away all their items when they first move in. If you have taken advantage of your removals companies packing service all boxes should be labelled with the correct room. Although it may feel like a hard slog, unpacking your boxes is the best thing you can do. Having all of your personal items around you will add familiarity to your new environment. This will also help trigger the ‘nesting’ hormone which will make you want to do all you can to make it a home. Having boxes scattered throughout your new house will make you feel as though you are moving out, rather than moving in. It’s a constant visual reminder that you are in a new environment and seeing the boxes on a day to day basis will lead to unnecessary extra stress

  1. Make a home-cooked meal

To make your life easier in the weeks leading up to the house move, you probably ordered your fair share of takeaways. Resist the urge to do this at your new house and make a conscious effort to make a real home-cooked meal. As soon as you are able to, unpack the boxes labelled ‘kitchen’ and start making you and your families favourite dish. If you don’t feel as though you have the energy, opt for something simple. Then when you’re done cooking, sit down at the dining room table with real cutlery and easy your new home.

  1. Display your pictures and artwork

There is nothing more personal in a home than the pictures that hang on the walls. Display photographs of you and your loved ones and all the personal artworks you have collected over the years that means something to you. This will help to give your new house a personal touch and help to instantly make it feel more like it is your home!

  1. House plants are a must

Bring the outside, inside! Greenery and flowers are hugely important when transforming a house into a home. They will help to instantly add a splash of colour and life to every room and show that people now live here and care for the house.

  1. Host a house warming party

Nothing will motivate you to get unpacked and organised more than the prospect of having friends and family over. Instead of putting off the process and living with boxes scattered here and there for months, make sure you set aside some time to get to it right away so that you can invite your loved ones over to make new memories. Better yet, call up some of your nearest and dearest and let them know that you’re willing to exchange a home-cooked meal for a bit of help with the unpacking process.

Our Reviews

5/5

I would highly recommend this removal company to everyone. The removal men arrived exactly on time and were friendly, pleasant and polite during the whole move. I don’t think I could have asked for a better removal experience.

5/5

Moved under difficult circumstances and with very poor service from conveyancers meaning we exchanged on the day of the move. GoPanda were very understanding and accommodating even when I was unable to confirm anything. Throughout the move everyone worked like a Trojan and completed the move successfully. I contacted other companies with this job, some of whom were quick to suggest I would be gambling on GoPanda. It was a gamble well worth taking and my experience would suggest competitors’ allegations were without foundation. I would definitely use GoPanda again (though I have no intention of moving) and recommend to others.

5/5

Go Panda gave us a competitive quote and then completed the move ahead of schedule and with great respect for our belongings. Andrew and his team were efficient, courteous and went above and beyond their contracted duties. I would not hesitate in recommending them highly.

The first time we’ve used this company, and we’ve moved around a bit! They were brilliant, friendly, calm and efficient. It felt like they really cared about our stuff and their assembly service was great. I’d recommend them to family and friends. They made a potentially stressful day fun!

Having used Go Panda for moving house three times now, and about to use them for the fourth time, I thought it was high time I left a review, considering how brilliant the service has been every time.

Go Panda’s team are all so friendly and helpful, and they’ve always quoted me accurately and given brilliant prices and, most importantly, a great service.

The utmost care and attention is given to your valuable items and they’re completely flexible and accommodating when it comes to loading, transporting and unloading your belongings.

I never thought such a brilliant removal service was possible until I discovered Go Panda. Thank you again.

Couldn’t rate them any higher. Great experience moving with the Go Panda Boys. Thanks a million. Claude. of the Removals companies in Cardiff we have used, Go Paada were the best
