Whether you are wanting to make a new floor plan for your new home, or just aren’t happy with the current one, a good floor plan is the basis to a comfortable and efficient home. Arranging your home has to be done correctly to get full advantage to everything your home has to offer. If you are moving to a new home, most likely there will be a change in the house or apartments floor plan to the one you currently live in. This might alter your furniture and accessory set up. To create the best floor plan possible, revisions will need to be made, and careful thought and measurement will be taken into account before moving.
First, you will need to take measurements of your new place of living. You will want to measure the width of each wall, window, the floor space, and mark down where installations, such as outlets and ventilation are as well. Outlets are on of the most important item to mark down in this day. With this era being so perplexed with electronics, an outlet needs to be a cords-length away from each piece of furniture or TV stand. Also, other installations are difficult to move such as ventilation and out of the ceiling lights. If you are going the route to have outlets, ventilation, and other installations moved, it is best to have all the planning and work done before you move your furniture in. This will make the job the easiest on the person doing the work and yourself by not having to move furniture all over the room to get to the current installations. If you have your furniture already in your home or already have a trailer with all the furniture in it, Woody and Sons offers Labor Only Moving Services to help move furniture and is experienced in setting up the optimal floor plan.
Next, you will want to measure what you currently have. You will want to do this to check if it will be able to fit into your new home through doors and windows. You will also want to do this to see if you will be unable to take any current furniture to your new home. This will save time and money in the moving process. Woody and Sons residential moving services can aid in your moving plan, and can help measure and make sure what furniture can fit before making the move. By measuring this current furniture, you will be able to estimate and project where you can place everything to create the most efficient floor plan.
Now, for placement of furniture, you will want to start with the larger items first. It will be easier to carry couches, bed frames, etc. through empty rooms first and placing them where you picked without bumping into end tables and chairs. After placing all the large pieces of furniture, you are able to then bring in chairs, end tables, and drawers. These items are a little more universal in placement so that you can still have them where they can fit, and in places that still make sense for use. A lot of offices and businesses tend to have large furniture, which makes it challenging to move. Woody and Sons provides business moving services to give you all the help you will need when moving your business.
After all your furniture is set in place, you can now focus on smaller items. You can look at open wall space for pictures in frames, paintings, and other wall hangers. You can place any accessories to the room on your open table space, hang shelves, and create the home-like feel you were going for. By setting up all the larger furniture first, you will find if you do not have room for that large painting, or big collage of family photos, it will be easier to move or get rid of these items than the large furniture items.
Another great reason for moving is it gives you an opportunity to buy new things. If you find you have space for new furniture, or your last pieces were to big, you can go buy new furniture, kitchenware, and other accessories to keep your home feeling new and fresh. A lot of people tend to leave their old things behind, and buy new when they are moving across the country. Woody and Sons can help save you money with our experienced long distance moving services, so that you will be able to keep and use your current furniture and appliances.
Lastly, you will need to plan the relocation of your items. For the large furniture that will not fit, you can read one of our blog posts about what to do when furniture will not fit in your new home.
Moving to a new home is stressful, time-consuming, but in the end is a fun experience. Planning your new floor plan, style, and feel of your new home is a refreshing feeling. By planning ahead of time with measuring, placement of larger furniture, and making slight adjustments, you will be able to construct the most comfortable and efficient floor plan.
