Make Your New Home Feel Familiar With These 6 Tips

Make Your New Home Feel Familiar With These 6 TipsWhether you are moving across town or across the street, the change can be unsettling. Help ease the transition (and potential bouts of homesickness) with these 6 tips to help make your new home feel more familiar.

1.    UNPACK CLOSETS FIRST: Unpack your closets first. Seeing your clothes hanging in a closet can give you a sense of being settled. You will eliminate stress by knowing where your favorite outfits are located when you are scrambling to get ready for the first day of your new job!

2.    MIMIC YOUR OLD ROUTINE: Set up your new home similar to your old home if possible. For example, if you had a space by the front door that you would drop your keys, mail, coats, etc., mimic that same space in your new home. You can still mimic your old routine even when the location changes.

3.    RECREATE FAMILIARITY: Recreate familiarity in your new home with sounds, sights and scents. Play an upbeat song that you may have danced to in your old home. Light a candle with your favorite scent or hang pictures of your family that warms your heart.

4.    COMFORT IS KEY: Make your first night in your new home as comfortable as you felt in your old home. Pull out clean bedding such as pillows, duvets, sheets and throws, and recreate your old, cozy bed routine.

5.    HOMEMADE MEAL: Instead of opting for pizza your first night in your new home, unpack the kitchen so you can cook a homemade meal. It doesn’t have to be complicated, just something simple and comforting that you enjoyed in your old home such as chicken and rice casserole.

6.    HOMEOWNERS INSURANCE: Have peace of mind knowing your homeowners insurance has you covered in the event of an emergency in your new home. Without adequate insurance coverage, a minor disaster can quickly elevate into a catastrophe.

While a move can stir up excitement, it can also cause feelings of homesickness.
