How to Unpack Properly when you First Arrive after Relocation?

Congratulations! You made it! Welcome to the new home! Phew! All the planning, packing, using movers, etc., is finally behind you, and now you have reached your new home.

But wait! This is not over yet. You also need to unpack everything! Isn’t it daunting? Worry not! This article explains how to unpack correctly when you first arrive after the relocation.

Peruse the points below to make this final stage of relocation as easy as it could be.

Plan First

All this would become very easy if you have a plan. Your boxes have arrived, and now you to start unpacking.

Decide if you need help to unpack, or would you instead do it by yourself. Probably all your boxes are stacked in one place. Decide how you would prefer them to be sorted.

You must also plan if you want to do it all in one day or want to unpack over a few days.

Place the Boxes in Respective Rooms

The next step is straightforward. After planning comes organising, it would help if you placed the boxes in the rooms they belong to. Put the kids box in the kid’s room, kitchen stuff box in kitchen room, bedroom box in the bedroom, etc.

If you are taking the movers’ services, you can ask them to do this task for you soon as the boxes arrive. This would avoid any confusion at a later stage.

Once the boxes are placed in the rooms, things would become much more organised. Now all you have to do is unpack each room one by one.

Start with The Bathroom

One of the most important places to start with is the bathroom. When you reach your home and need to use the washroom, you would want certain things to be in place, isn’t it?

Nobody likes to enter the bathroom without paper-towels or soap. You can start by unpacking all the bathroom stuff.

Next, Take the Bedroom

Your bedroom would be the place where you would finally rest after a day of unpacking, and so you need to keep it organised.

Once you are done unpacking for the bathroom, you should empty the critical stuff for your bedroom. Putting the mattress, bedsheet, pillows, and pillow covers, etc., are essential things and must be taken care of on the first day itself.

Do not forget to unpack for your kids too! You must do it one the first day too!

Now, Its Kitchen Time

The kitchen is a little lower on the list because you can always order something from a restaurant nearby till you get your kitchen organised. If you plan to do this the first day, it would be great as you can start having home-made meals from day one.

Arrange all the kitchenware that you brought along and organise it just the way you prefer.

Finally, The Living Room

Last but not least is the living room. You need to ensure that you finally set the living room straight once your bedrooms and kitchen are done. Place the required stuff in the living room once you unpack the living-room box.


Concluding Thoughts

As mentioned before, people often find unpacking a daunting task. Well, if you read the pointers above, you would realise that it is not very difficult. All you need is some guidance, planning, and organising.
