Easing into Home: A Guide to the First 30 Days in Your New Property

Are you on the verge of sealing the deal on your new home? Is moving day approaching? If you’ve been anticipating this moment for weeks or months, eager to move in and make the space your own, we’ve got essential tips for you on how to settle into your new property within the first 30 days.

The Journey to Your New Home

Embarking on the journey of moving house is a significant undertaking that demands meticulous planning. Once the keys are in your hands, and the stress of the move is behind you, what awaits in those crucial first 30 days?

1. Unpacking Essentials: Get the Kettle On

The initial moments involve the removal company bringing your belongings into the property. Ensure a smooth start by having a box of tea-making essentials within easy reach or clearly labeled. A comforting cup of tea is often the first thing people make in their new homes, setting a positive tone for your new chapter. And possibly Champagne for later…

2. Clean and Refresh

Despite the property’s cleanliness upon handover, it’s a common practice to clean before unpacking. Have your cleaning supplies readily available and marked for easy access, allowing you to create a fresh and welcoming environment.

3. First-Night Box or Bag

Prepare a ‘first-night’ box or bag, mimicking a hotel stay. This ensures that essentials such as your toothbrush, PJs, and clean clothes for the next day are easily accessible, simplifying your first night in your new home.

4. Find Your Feng Shui

Make the space truly yours by rearranging furniture until you’ve found the perfect arrangement that suits your style and sense of Feng Shui. You’re not bound to replicate the layout of the previous occupants; personalise it to match your preferences.

5. Crafting Your Plan

Consider your DIY plans for the property within the first month. Deciding whether to put your stamp on the home immediately influences how you unpack and arrange specific items. Planning ahead ensures a smoother transition as you decorate and personalise your space.

6. Community Connection

Take the time to introduce yourself to the community, engage in local events, and enjoy a meal at the nearby pub. Building connections with neighbours and becoming familiar with your new town contributes to a sense of settlement and belonging.

Some of our favourites include: The Carpenters, The Dog & Partridge (Sunninghill), The Winning Post and Don Beni (Winkfield), and The Pinkneys Arms and The Crown (Maidenhead).

Restoring Normality

After the upheaval of the move, a quick settlement into your new home restores normality, allowing you to embrace your surroundings and meet your new neighbours. Your hard work in the buying and selling process deserves a swift transition, setting the stage for the life you’ve dreamed of in your new home.
