When you move house, the bedroom can be one of the most difficult rooms to pack up simply because you do so much living in there. It is a very personal space that can be tricky to put into boxes, no matter how necessary that might be. But in order to ensure a swift transition from one house to another and from one bedroom to another, pack up you must. Here are a few tips to make the process as pain free as possible.
Pack up things that can wait. One of the mistakes that so many people make is leaving everything to the last minute when they are packing. Yes, your bedroom is a space that contains a lot of things that are dear to you, but there will also be objects that you can pack up weeks before and not even realise they are gone.
Those bottom drawers that contain the things you want to keep but never really look at can be boxed up, as can clothing that lies at the bottom of your wardrobe untouched.
Use bedroom furniture as storage. Something about bedrooms is that they tend to have a lot of storage for personal belongings. Instead of unpacking drawer after drawer and transferring the content to separate boxes, you might want to think about actually using those storage containers, such as bedroom drawers, as moving boxes themselves. Cover them in sheets so they are padded and simply load them up on moving day for a stress free move.
Handling big furniture. The last step is to pack up your big furniture such as your bed and large wardrobes. Of course, a lot of this will have to be done on the actual day that you move because you will need to sleep in your bed right up to the last moment. With all the stress of moving day, the last thing you want to be doing is attacking your bed with a screwdriver in order to try and dismantle it.
Large pieces of furniture can also be tricky to take apart, and with the stress of moving day piling up on you, it's just not worth taking care of the task yourself. Get specialists at the furniture removals company to arrive a bit early and take care of this for you. If there is an extra charge, it will be worth it.
