Even if you’re ecstatic to move into your new house, your first few weeks might be strange and foreign. If you’re struggling to settle into your new space in one of the apartments for rent in Toledo, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s how to make your new house feel like a home, as stated by people who have been through the same

1. Start with the closet.

Clothing is something you’ll need every single day, which is why it’s wise to start with your closet. Move all of your favourite clothes into your new closet and feel a sense of relief wash over you. You’re already familiar with your clothes, and now that they’re in your new place, it’ll start to feel like common ground.

2. Prioritize the kids’ rooms.

“My oldest son, who is 3 years old, has a large collection of snow globes. My second-oldest son is a collector of previously owned things, especially his,” says Nicole Curtis, host of Rehab Addict on HGTV. “I take the box of globes with me and ask that the furniture movers begin in his room since he keeps all of his collectables there. He’ll spend the day unpacking his collections because it’s all that counts, even though everything else is a mess.”

3. Recreate familiar sounds and sights.

The cuckoo clock, according to creator Maxwell Ryan, “sings every 30 minutes” for years. The clock’s sound, according to Ryan, is comparable to that of a house. If your old home had a distinctive sound, attempt to replicate it in your new one (if it’s wanted, of course!).

4. Wait to hang art.

“I’ve spent a lot of time travelling across the world in search of art, and each painting is priceless to me since it transports me to a certain place and era,” explains Holly Becker, author and creator of the Decor8 blog. I open each item as soon as possible so that I may still enjoy it until I decide where to store everything.

5. Maintain your normal routine.

“Bob has a propensity to lose his wallet and keys in the same areas,” says Cortney Novogratz, a designer and author who relocated from New York City with her spouse and seven children last year. “I began collecting coats, bags, and keys as soon on arrival as possible. I reused the hooks and baskets from our previous home in Manhattan since they’re still useful to us. Your daily routine does not have to be altered when you relocate – I find it helps to stick to it”.

6. Bring out all your favourites.

“I turn on my iPod and play music I like,” says Becker, who always includes iPod speakers, candles, and a lighter in an easy-to-find ‘favourites’ box. “I’m a big fan of Lorde, Oh Land, John Mayer, and Zaz, as well as certain Jo Malone candles and the Diptyque’s Fire Wood. It smells like a burning fire and is wonderful.”

7. Get comfy.

“All of my clean bedding is removed the minute I move in,” says Joy Cho. “Having everything at hand when I’m not feeling well helps me feel more comfortable.”

“Pillows, duvets, bed coverings, and mattresses are all on the checklist. You’ll be sleeping in your old, familiar space!”.

8. Make it smell good.

“I want my house to have a lovely new fragrance so it may seem like a second home,” Ryan adds. “Like seasoning a cast-iron pan, I season the stovetop location with a pricey steak, similar to how heat and odours ‘season’ my home.”
