Welcome back to the third and final post about moving into your dream apartment community! Check out these tips on what to do after you’ve moved all of the boxes into your new apartment:
- Start Unpacking Important Items
You’re more than likely going to want to unpack all of your boxes in one day. A better plan of attack is to unpack your essential items first. A few days’ worth of clothing, toiletries, and bed linens are the most important items to unpack the first day or evening in your new apartment.
- Sit Down with Roommates & Discuss Layout
Make it a group effort so that everyone’s opinions are heard. Test out different types of room and furniture layouts and decide collectively what should be placed on each shelf and in each closet.
- Tackle the Kitchen
Let’s face it – the majority of your boxes are probably filled with kitchen pots, pans, utensils and more. The next step is to unpack your kitchen, which will empty a ton of boxes and get rid of some of the clutter in your space. Another great thing about unpacking the kitchen is that your coffee pot will be ready to go!
- Introduce Yourself to Neighbors
If you happen to see your neighbors within the first week of move in, say hello and establish friendly terms early on. You’ll want to have a good relationship with them from the beginning!
- Make Your New Apartment Your Home
It’s the little details that make your space unique. Personalize your new apartment and enjoy!
Moving is hard work, but once you’re all settled in, you’ll feel accomplished! Be sure to check out Part One and Part Two of this Move-In Checklist for even more tips. We hope you have a great experience celebrating how you live in your new apartment.
