You’ve decided to downsize. Congratulations!

While you may be looking forward to moving to a smaller space, you may be wondering what you’re going to do about the furniture you have now and how you are going to decorate. The good news is that you don’t have to get rid of all your furniture and you can actually do a lot of things to make your home functional and beautiful. 

Measure Everything

This is a must. You need measure the rooms, furniture, and doorways. You have to know if the furniture is going to fit through the door, and if it’s going to fit where you want to put it. This will help you determine the furniture items you will be keeping and the ones that you’ll have to sell or give away to someone in need.

Move Big Furniture First

Ask your Loyal Moving professionals to move the large furniture first. It’s the foundation of the room. You build around the large furniture.

Use What Is Used

Use what is used means that you should only place furniture that will be used in your home. If you do not use three couches, you shouldn’t put them in your home. Since it’s smaller, you need every square foot to work for you. Think of what you can do with each space and then use your furniture to make it happen.

Ask for Help from Loved Ones

Your loved ones can help you greatly with organizing and decorating your new home. Ask them for ideas. You may be amazed at how they can identify spaces that you never even thought could be used.

Go Up

When you have limited space, you use the space going up. You can put shelves up, so you can store items on. You can use your ceilings too. You can hang items that could work as decoration and storage. Get creative, and you’ll soon find how much you can really fit in your new, smaller home.

Organize

Organization can help you fit more in less space. It will also make it easier to find items. You can use Tupperware containers and Sterlite to help you. You can also find places to tuck items such as under beds and other furniture.

Consider these tips as you are moving into your new home. Don’t become anxious when it seems as though you can’t fit everything. There’s always a way – you just have to be creative.
