From a psychological point of view, moving into a new home can involve a considerable amount of worry and stress.
Suddenly you find yourself in a new environment, which you need to gradually get used to. The risk of feeling out of place in your own home is much more real than you might imagine.
While you wait for daily life to overcome any possible resistance, here are some tips that will help you feel more comfortable in your own home.
1. TIDINESS AND CLEANLINESS
Disassembling and reassembling furniture is certainly the most strenuous part of moving home. Before the new area is invaded with furniture scattered all over the place, consider thoroughly cleaning every room. This will make you more familiar with the real size of the house.
Once the furniture has been assembled and the lighting fixtures and mirrors have been arranged, simply remove the residual dirt produced during reassembly and you are already halfway there.
2. MAKE ROOM FOR CHANGE
Moving house represents a major change in a person’s life. That is why it is important to make it as positive an experience as possible.
Furnish your new home with the style that you like best, replace the old furnishings and create an environment that helps you feel good.

3. DISCOVERING THE NEIGHBOURHOOD
Moving house means completely changing your habits both at and out of home. Try not to isolate yourself and take the opportunity to make friends and get to know the new neighbours, the caretaker and the building manager as soon as possible.
Routine will quickly overcome the sense of change, helping to make you feel at home again.
