It can be a bit of a nightmare to be honest, and at the end of the whole thing you often won’t feel like making that many changes to your new place. Just unpacking will seem like quite the chore. It can be more than tempting to just make-do in your new home, without adding any personal touches to make it yours. But it really can make all of the difference. And the quicker you get to work on these finishing touches, the quicker you can get about the real business of making a new life for yourself.
Here are 4 finishing touches that can be added for no hassle and minimal cost.
This isn’t a change that will alter the look of your new place in any way. But it will keep it warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. In the long run it’ll save you a lot on bills, and the earlier it’s installed, the more money you’ll save. If you have it installed before you move in, then you’ll also save yourself all the hassle of having workmen traipse around your house for a day or two. This can be a major bonus in itself.
In the hotter weather outdoor blinds, can be an absolute blessing. With minimal fuss in terms of installation, they can transform a patio or decking into another room in your house. As an outdoor piece of kit you don’t have to worry about the installers getting in your way, and there’s also plenty of room for customisation in them. You can have them altered or fitted to any part of your project, meaning that they’ll have that added bit of personal flair that you’ll want in your new place.
Fixtures and Fittings
This is quite a broad term, but fixtures and fittings can mean anything from door handles to light switches. Making changes in these can be a no-fuss operation which will give your empty house a new feel. Small changes like this should really reflect your personality as you move forward in your new home. They’re also a great way to kick off the redesign of your whole house without tearing up the floorboards and knocking down walls just yet.
This is a simple but obvious one. When you buy your new place it will be completely empty until you move in. You’ll never get such a good chance to paint your new home as you do then. As soon as you move in there’ll be stuff everywhere, and painting anything will be a full week’s job at least. Seize the day, and make the changes while you can.
