Are you moving across the country and relocating to Washington? Are you in the middle of looking for a new apartment in Everett? Is it time to leave behind your old, cramped apartment in favor of a new and spacious residence?
Finding a new apartment takes time and research, and you’ll probably feel a lot of relief after successfully submitting an application, submitting your deposit, and receiving the key to your new apartment. However, it may take some time for your new apartment to truly feel like a beautiful home of your very own.
Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to get the most out of your new apartment, as well as create the “homey” feeling you get when you walk over the threshold each night after work.
Keep in Touch with Friends
Moving takes a lot of time and energy, even if you’re just relocating across town. During the packing, moving, and unpacking, it becomes far too easy to lose track of friends and forget about socializing. You may find it beneficial to make an effort to socialize after moving into your new home, particularly if you’re finding it a little difficult to relax when you’re surrounded by boxes that you need to unpack.
If you’re still close geographically to your friends and you haven’t moved across the country, make an effort to invite them over for a visit soon after you move into your new luxury apartment. Your friends probably won’t care if all your boxes are unpacked or if your apartment looks turnkey and perfect. They’ll enjoy getting to see you, as well as getting to explore your new place with you.
Set a Deadline
After you get your bed set up and find your toothbrush, toothpaste, and the coffee maker, you might lose the motivation to get the rest of your boxes unpacked. If you’re prone to procrastination and think you’ll still have boxes sitting around for months after you move into your new home, you may wish to create a deadline for unpacking everything, even if getting rid of the boxes doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve put everything away or in its new place.
There are a few ways to make sure you aren’t living in a sea of boxes six months after you move into your new Everette apartment.
- Invite friends over to help you unpack and decorate.
- Get everything out of your boxes, even if you don’t put things away immediately.
- Tackle at least one room a day until your whole apartment is unpacked.
- Donate, sell, or recycle stuff before you move, so you don’t have as much to unpack.
It’s difficult to feel like you’ve arrived home if you’re surrounded by boxes while you eat dinner each night. Waking up in your own bed is nice, but it’s a hassle to see boxes piled up in the bathroom that are filled with toiletries you need to use each morning. The quicker you get your boxes and possessions unpacked, the quicker you’ll start to feel at home in your new apartment.
