Moving out means leaving years of memories behind, and while moving into a new home is exciting, it can feel devoid of personality at first. So what can you do to make your new house feel like a home from the moment you move in?
We know, we know. The last thing you want to do when you first move into your new place is to start cooking. Enjoy the customary first night pizza delivery, but after this, it’s well worth putting some effort into cooking your family’s favourite dishes. Smell is strongly associated with memory, so by making nostalgic or memorable dishes, you can start to invoke your new place with certain smells and memories.
One of the easiest ways you can start making your new place feel like a home is by putting up your most sentimental decorations. Cover those empty walls with artwork, posters, family photos, mementos and more to really make it feel like its yours.
Throw a housewarming party
Home is where your loved ones are, so having a housewarming is the perfect way to inject your home with warmth and love. This also helps to make your new home feel less empty and allows you to surround yourself with familiar faces.
Meet the neighbours
Getting to know your neighbours is one of the things that truly creates a sense of belonging and homeliness. Perhaps you want to be old school and bring freshly baked cookies to their doorstep, or simply invite them over for a cup of tea. Whatever it is, start getting to know your neighbours early to familiarise yourself with your home and surroundings.
