To lessen the burden of unpacking, here are some tips so you’re unpacking job is fun and stress-free.
In the first place, don’t ever think that you can unpack all of the boxes in just a single day, especially if you have arrived in the new place in a later time in the evening. For this reason, make a priority of those important items first needed by your family before unpacking the other less important stuffs. If you have hired a moving company, you can direct them on the right rooms where some of the furniture should be placed. The purpose is to make your unpacking easy and you don’t need to rearrange it afterwards. The moving company can also unpack the beds then reassemble it for your immediate use.
What are these items? For a family, focus on the things used in preparing the meals, resting, and bathing then unpack them appropriately on their corresponding rooms. Meaning to say, the kitchen and dining room will be the first place to do unpacking. The long travel will surely make the rest of your family to feel hungry upon arriving in your new home. If there are electric appliances used in cooking, make it sure that the electricity is switched on so you can now start cooking for the meals. And also since it’s only the first day, unpacked only those basic items required in the kitchen. The rest can be done in the next day.
After setting up the kitchen and dining room, the bathroom will be your next target area. Check if the mechanical systems inside the bathroom are working like the faucets, showers, and the toilet bowl. Unpack the toiletries and other bathroom stuffs and put them in their proper places.
Then proceed to the living room and start to make a lay-out plan on how you want the furniture to be put in place. This can be brain-storming for the family and everybody can give their ideas to make the room beautiful and comfortable. However, you can just unpack first the couch, chairs and tables since you are still planning for the lay-out of the room.
Since everybody is tired of a whole-day work of transferring and unpacking things, the bedroom should be set-up also. And if everybody are already worn-out and can’t handle anymore to reassemble the bed, don’t be bothered because you can use the mattresses and pillows where you and your family can sleep together just for the night.
