While it feels fantastic to finally move into your new custom house, it does take a little while to acclimate to the space until it really feels like home. Continue reading for a few simple tips on how to quickly turn your custom house into a comfortable home for you and your family!
One of the best ways to make a new house feel like your own is to personal touches to each room. While many homeowners think of a custom home as a chance to start over, it’s comforting to keep a few familiar items from your past, such as family photos, decor pieces passed down from your parents or grandparents, and even blankets from your old home. This is especially helpful for children and pets, as they will acclimate faster to the new house is the space looks and feels familiar. While it’s great to have new furniture and updated features, a few older items will add the perfect amount of nostalgia.
While unpacking all of your items into a new home can be a chore, try to put everything away as soon as possible to avoid boxes from cluttering your house. It doesn’t feel very welcoming to come home to a mess of unpacked boxes and totes, but once everything is put away in its rightful place, you will start to feel more at home! If you don’t have the time to unpack everything, store boxes and miscellaneous items out of sight in the attic or spare room to keep your living areas clean and open.
Starting new family traditions is another great way to help your family settle into a new custom home. Enjoy the special features that your new house has to offer, such as a big backyard and patio, an expansive kitchen, and bigger living spaces for fun and games. A new tradition can be as simple as having a family game night or movie night to spend time together and give everyone something to look forward to each week.
After you’ve settled into your new home and have everything unpacked, it’s a great time to invite friends and family over to celebrate your custom home! Having familiar people in the new house will immediately make it feel more like home, as you can start to make new memories with loved ones. It’s also a great idea to invite your neighbors to your housewarming party to introduce yourself and feel like you are a part of the community.
