How to have a fuss-free furnishing experience

Are you planning to make the transition from your current apartment to your dream home? Or, is relocation to Singapore for work in your future plans? While we can all agree that searching for the perfect home that ticks all your checkboxes may take up plenty of time and effort, getting your new place in shape should not.

After you have identified your ideal home or the perfect bachelor pad, it’s the perfect time to start planning your big move. From decluttering your home contents to making arrangements for the local utilities and services, here’s a quick guide to ensure you have it all covered for a smooth transition to living the life in your new home.

Before you can move into your future home for the next couple of months, stop and think what else you need in the house.

Prepare a checklist

Moving can be a great time to sort through your things and dispose of items you no longer use, especially if you are downsizing. We know that packing and decluttering of your personal items can be time consuming but a general rule of thumb used by professional organizers is, if you haven’t used it in a year or more, get rid of it.

In addition, you should:

  • Clear your schedule and plan time to pack for the big move
  • Order enough boxes and label them, categorized by the living space
  • Declutter, get rid of, and organize as you pack
  • Arrange for a moving service to move your personal belongings
  • Schedule for a thorough cleaning service before moving into the new home

Things you can omit

If you notice, the checklist above only includes what you need to do prior to the big move. Even with fully renovated apartments, sourcing for the right set of furniture that suits your lifestyle might cost you weeks or even months of research and visitation of various furniture stores and having to schedule the delivery timing with each and every furniture vendor.

Imagine having to coordinate a jam-packed list of delivery dates and timings for different furniture pieces to reach your new home while you are kept busy unpacking all the boxes brought over from your old apartment? You have not even accounted for delivery transport breakdowns, delays or broken pieces of furniture upon delivery. Sounds nightmarish? We have the solution for you.
