Moving can be an opportunity to start new, and create the living environment you have always envisioned. Hardwood floors, new wall colors, or maybe even that new washer & dryer set you have been eyeing at Home Depot for the last few months, are all things that can be done much easier if done before you unpack all of your belongings. Take a look at our short list for home repairs and improvement projects to think about before you unpack after your move.
A fresh coat of paint can make all the difference in the world when moving into a new place, and a little pop of color or fun pattern can give any space just the right amount of flair to make it uniquely yours. Take the opportunity of having your new space free from items on the walls and give your new home the attention it deserves!
Keep in mind that painting can take a few days when you consider a primer coat, two regular coats and dry-time in between, so be sure to try and give yourself a few days before moving into the new place to get this done.
Been eyeing a new washer and dryer set, or maybe a new fridge to match the stainless steel oven to put the finishing touches on your new home? Do it NOW!! Moving appliances in and out of the house is so much easier when you don't have to weave in an out of coffee tables, toys, and pets :)
