Preparing Your Bedroom for a Smooth Transition to Your New Home

Once you’ve finished packing and setting up your new home, you’ll likely crave a restful night’s sleep. But remember, there’s still plenty to do. Here are some helpful tips to ensure your first nights in your new bedroom are peaceful after your residential move.

Nightstand Necessities: Packing Bedside Essentials for Your First Night in the New Home

The items most of us keep on our nightstands feel like necessities that we either need through the night or upon waking up the following day. As you are packing up the bedroom in the old house, give this some consideration. It can help to pack a box specifically for your bedside essentials. That way, when you get to the new place on the first night, you can retrieve this box and have everything you need. A few items you may need for your nightstand or bedside table include:

  • Cell phone chargers
  • Tissues
  • Lamps
  • An alarm clock
  • Hand lotion
  • A water bottle
  • The TV remote if you have a TV in the bedroom
  • Books or journals
  • Eye masks or other items that help you sleep

Furniture Placement Plan: Strategizing Bedroom Layout for Maximum Relaxation

The layout of your furniture can even play a role in how well you sleep on those first nights at the new place. Some people prefer to keep the layout familiar or similar to how the room looked at the house left behind. For example, if your bed is facing a particular direction, such as the north or south, placing the bed in the same direction may mean better sleep. It can also be helpful and a bit less jarring to wake up in a room that feels recognizable. For instance, if you usually wake to see a dresser in a specific spot or a cozy seating area nearby, following a similar pattern in the new bedroom can put you at ease.

Comfort and Familiarity: Making Your New Bedroom Feel Like Home

The bedroom could be one of the most important spaces to feel like home after your move. The key is to make the space feel familiar and comfortable despite its newness. A few ways to achieve this include:

  1. Bedding: Bring your favorite bedding and pillows to add familiarity and comfort to your new sleeping space.
  2. Decorate with Personal Touches: Hang up photos, artwork, or other personal mementos to make your new bedroom feel like your own. Surrounding yourself with familiar items will help you feel more at home.
  3. Scent and Sound: Consider using calming or familiar scents like citrus, lavender, or vanilla to create a relaxing atmosphere. Play soothing music or white noise to help you sleep peacefully if new environmental noise is an issue.
