10 ways to feel at home in your new apartment

1. Unpack as soon as you can

Don’t drag this case out for long. If you work, take a day off after your move if possible. The sooner you’ll unpack the mountains of boxes, the cozier you’ll be in the house. The routine of moving away will be left behind and you will start get used to the new environment.

2. Recreate the old coziness

Distribute the little things from the old apartment to the new one. For example, vases, cute toys, pillows and so on. Place more of these things at eye level. Don’t forget to take your favourite plants with you when you move in. In your new home, these things will remind you about home comfort. In the future, try to spend more time on such trifles. Buy new decorations to make your apartment more cute.

3. Use your favorite scents

A person is very sensitive and attached to scents. Fill your home with the scent of flowers that used to stand in the old living room, or light scented candles. Prepare delicious cookies. This will make the atmosphere of your home more cozy.

4. Take care of your pet

Moving with an animal is a stressful experience. Your pet has already get used to his old apartment, too. You see that poor animal isn’t comfortable, and that feeling bother you too. Make place for your pet and take your old toys with you so he will get used to his new apartment more quickly. And if you don’t have a pet, it’s a good time to have one. For example, take him from the shelter.

5. Start with the most delicious

Arrange the food on the shelves as you like. Cook a family recipe dish, organize a housewarming party and gather around the dining table. Invite friends if they have the opportunity to get to you. Also arrange a music evening for all guests.

6. Make sure there is enough light

A dark apartment can cause discomfort. Light curtains and bright lamps will make it more comfortable.

7. Decorate the bare walls

Hang your favorite paintings and family photos. It really helps make a place feel at home. You may have an old clock that hung in your past home for a long time. If you have a children’s room, pin-up child drawings. You can paint a picture as a family. It will be a symbol of your move to a new home.

8. Find out about the area

Take a walk around the new neighborhood. If you move to a new city or state, it takes longer. Learn about local attractions, parks, supermarkets. Download maps to your smartphone if you are afraid to get lost in a new area. Meeting people can be difficult wherever you live, and after moving to a new place it can be very intimidating. However, this is an important part of adapting to an unfamiliar environment.

9. Start with the bed

This is the first thing that we associate with our home place. Put your wardrobe things on the shelves in the place you’re used to, and your favorite book next to you on the nightstand.

10. Give yourself some time and relax

Get over the fact that only the situation change. Home is the place where you feel comfortable. Try to spend time in each of the rooms. Rest after moving is especially important for seniors. Do your daily things. Enjoy the new view from the window, make friends, continue decorating your new apartment and after a while you will confidently call this apartment home.
