There’s something just so wonderfully exciting about being able to move into a new home. Sure, the whole process of selling your old home and moving can be incredibly stressful, but that doesn’t take away from the joy and wonder that comes from finding yourself in a totally new place.

However, the first days in a new home can often be something of a challenge. After all, you often find yourself wandering around a place that you’re totally unfamiliar with, that’s surrounded by boxes, and that you have no real memories with or attachment to. It’s enough to put a downer on the whole event.

However, that’s not the way things need to be. In order to help you avoid feeling like you’re somewhere strange, here are a few things that you can do in order to make a new home your own right away.

Pack away the boxes

Your new house is never going to feel like a genuine home if you’re surrounded by cardboard boxes. For one thing, they make it incredibly difficult to move around comfortably, but they also make it feel as though you’re still in the process of “moving in”. In reality, moving in should be something that you get through as quickly as possible. Only once you’re fully moved in can go actually go about living in your home and starting to feel more comfortable in it.

Furnish it

The personality of a home is often dictated just as much by the furniture that you have than by the property itself. By finding the right kind of furniture to have in your new home, you can make the whole place feel a lot more welcoming and less sparse, even if you’re still moving in. Bringing old furniture from your previous home can really drag a new home down.

Make it personal

Of course, there’s no point in living in a home if you’re not going to be able to put your personal stamp on it. The best way to make a house feel more like a home is to make it as personal as possible.

Put pictures on the walls that mean something to you and fill the place with as many personal items as possible. After all, the last thing you want is for your home to end up looking like a furniture showroom instead of a place where people actually live.

Another great way to add a personalized touch to your house is by painting your home’s interior walls. Painting walls can really transform the look of a room, it can modernize it, make it feel bigger, brighter, and cleaner. No matter how hard you try to clean them sometimes you just have to paint over that countless fingerprints. Changing the color palette to your taste is one of the best ways to make your house feel like your home. Another added bonus to painting the walls is that it is a relatively cost-effective way to update and personalize a space.

When it comes to painting a room think outside of the norm and get creative if you really want to add that unique and personal finish. You don’t just have to paint all the walls the same color or even one wall one color. Add multiple colors to walls, divide them up with quirky shapes or utilize stencils to add different designs and styles to your walls. You can find a whole range of stencils online for any room of the house or you could even order personalized stencils giving it a truly unique feel.  If you do not have the time to take a paintbrush to your interiors then consider calling in the professionals to take care of it for you. It will relieve you of the worries of cutting in and streaky walls. 

Of course, even if you still have a few the same feelings about your home after doing these things, don’t worry. The reality is that it won’t be long before you start to make new memories in your new home and it will reach the point where you won’t be able to remember a time when you didn’t live there.
