Preparing to move: Ensuring your old furniture fits your new house
Sep 23, 2015
Here’s a great guide for preparing to move, including great ways to make sure all your possessions fit perfectly into your new home.
Everything you own may fit in your current home, but it may not fit as well in your new one. It can be easy to forget to measure, so be sure to set aside some time to do so. Make an appointment at the new place to be absolutely certain your furniture will fit the way you want it. All you need to bring is a tape measure and the measurements of your furniture. If you really want to prepare, consider templating your furniture.
Also, if you’re planning on applying wallpaper, countertops or flooring (or hiring someone to do it), you’re going to need to know the measurements of your walls counters etc. The same goes for hanging various items on the walls. What looks nice in one space may look awkward in another. You’ll never be completely sure until you’ve moved and tried it out, but you can measure and estimate in advance to know what you may need ahead of time.
