Getting ready to move requires a lot of preparation to eliminate stress. Whether you are downsizing to a smaller home or moving into a larger home, taking the time to create a floor plan can save you a lot of time before you move in.
Gardner Moving has nearly a century of experience serving customers in and around the Pittsburgh area. Along with this experience, we’ve gathered some helpful tips and tricks to help make moving stress-free for our clients. Here are some benefits to creating a floor plan for your move:
It can be challenging to picture where your furniture will fit best when looking at your empty home. With a floor plan, you can take the size and shape of your furniture into consideration. This will help you find the open spaces in your home where your couch, tables, chairs, etc., can go. With a floor plan, you will see if you have enough furniture to fill out your space or too much and need to downsize to suit the new space.
In addition to your floor plan, be sure to measure your furniture and the areas where you plan to place it to ensure it will fit the space.
Creating a floor plan lets you see what items and furniture will work for your space and what won’t, especially if you are moving to a smaller home or apartment. Moving is the perfect time to downsize and sell or donate items that no longer work with your new space. With a floor plan, you can jumpstart the downsizing and take away some of the stress of your move.
Your floor plan will help you take charge during moving day since you know where things need to be placed. You can use your floor plan to instruct the movers for an efficient and streamlined process. It will also help you design unpacking since you won’t need to move furniture multiple times to find the right fit.
