Updates to make BEFORE moving into your new home


When moving to your new house, renovations are often far from the top of your priorities. While some renovations are easy to do down the road, here are some home projects that are best to complete BEFORE you move in. While your new home is empty, it is also a great time to take advantage of being able to see every part of your house to inspect your walls, carpets, and floors for potential updates. 

Major painting

Painting a large portion of your home is much simpler when the rooms are empty. Not only can you avoid labor costs of moving your furniture, you eliminate the chance of any of your personal items being damaged from paint. Painting before moving day also means that you do not have to live in your house while the paint dries, avoiding the strong paint smell. 

Major Renovations

Any major renovations can leave you without necessary spaces in your home. They can also cause a mess in other parts of the house. Renovating rooms such as bathrooms and kitchens are best done when you are not living in your new home yet. This will make the renovation much less stressful because you won’t be living in a construction zone, and you won’t have to worry about any of your personal belongings being damaged. 

Replacing Doors & Windows

Replacing doors and windows can often mean exposing the inside of your home to the outdoor weather for a potentially long period of time. Without any furniture or personal belongings in the house, these replacements can be installed properly without rushing to protect your interior. 

Replacing Flooring

If you purchased a home that has carpet or flooring that needs to be replaced, it is much more efficient to do before there is any furniture in the house. This also applies to hardwood floors that may need to be sanded and refinished. Saving time and money by not having furniture to move back and forth, is a great reason to replace your floors before moving into your new home.
