The bedroom is probably the largest premise in your home, where you will spend most of your time when relocating. It is usually not only large, but it contains lots of items as well. How to handle packing your bedroom is consequently a task that you should be well prepared with, and plan ahead to have ample time before the moving date. Here are some great ideas on moving bedroom furniture, decoration, electronics, etc. from the planning to the moment you enter into your new house or apartment.
Moving Bedroom Checklist
- Explore your bedroom and which items will be moved to your new home. Taking a decision what to packand what to leave can be quite time-consuming, especially because you will have probably attached emotionally to many of the items that you have. Still, getting rid of some unimportant or useless household objects will make your bedroom packing faster and cheaper.
- What will fit in your new home. Yes, that is a major issue. What is the size of your new bedroom, which pieces of furniture do you want to put there, will they fit and how? Take measures of your bedroom and the furniture in it. Making a floor plan will help you decide what to pack. Why move that large wardrobe when you have not enough place for it in your new bedroom?
- Larger furniture like a king or queen size bed, sofa, table, chairs, etc. are best moved dismantled. Some of them could be large, cumbersome, bulky and generally pretty inconvenient to move as is. Besides, large furniture cannot pass through your door so you cannot move it without disassembly anyway. Before engaging in the task of dismantling large furniture yourself, make sure you have the right knowledge and skills to do it, and the right tools. Lacking any of those will simply prevent you from completing this task and in such a case you better get helpers – finding reliable bedroom furniture movers for this job is always a good thing as it will save you time, effort and will spare the risks for your health from handling large and heavy household objects.
- Get the packing supplies that you will need. Based on what you will be moving, try to estimate how much packing materials you will need and consider which ones you will use. Bubble wrap, packing peanuts, mattress cover, packing paper, tape, scissors, colorful markers for labeling boxes, moving blankets and moving pads are the basic packing supplies to consider having at your disposal. If you have any difficulties in deciding how much of these you will need, getting advice from bedroom movers directly can help you. Alternatively, you can use your own blankets and towels for packing, but you will have to wash them after the move is over.
- Organize the packing process as early as you can, especially if you have a larger bedroom. Don’t underestimate the time that you will need. Begin packing the items that you won’t need until the move is over. Label boxes clearly with their content on top and on all 4 sides. Don’t overfill boxes – they will be more difficult to carry and may break under the weight. Do a little bit of work every day to maximize your move.
- How to pack? Use wardrobe boxes for clothes. For objects with legs like tables and chairs, you can use socks to prevent them from scratching your floor, the walls and other objects around when they are being moved. If you have a TV, DVD, laptop, surround system, home cinema, etc. in your bedroom, take a look at our guide for packing electronics. Lamp shades should be packed with packing paper – wrap each one with a layer of it. Place lamp shades inside one another and then in the box. Use crumpled packing paper for cushioning when packing fragile or delicate items like these, or packing peanuts.
