Tips to Unpack Quickly After Moving

Packing and unpacking are the most tedious parts of moving. People sometimes let boxes stack up for weeks until they finally finish unpacking. If you plan on moving soon, we bet you would feel a lot better if you could unpack instantaneously to enjoy your new home. We may not be able to do it "instantaneously," but we can at least make it a little easier on you!

Below, we've put together tips and tricks to help you unpack quickly after moving.

Unpack Essentials First

Once you have organized boxes according to the room they correspond to, you can start unpacking. Before you start on the process below, we recommend unpacking the room most essential to improving your quality of life. If your favorite relaxation space is your bathroom, unpack there first. If you feel most at home in your kitchen, start there. 

Assemble Furniture Before Opening Boxes: When you arrive at the new place, you'll want to have a place to sit and a place to sleep! Once you've picked a room, assembling furniture is the first thing to do. You'll want to assemble furniture for another reason: it lets you arrange the room the way you want it with nothing in the way. Just make sure that you have the right tools at hand.

Unpacking the Kitchen: If you don’t have too much time, we recommend unpacking only what you need, like plates, utensils, pots, and pans. If you want, get major appliances and any small appliances hooked up to make your life a little easier. Otherwise, stick to basics!

Unpacking the Bathrooms: Get the basics squared away. This may include towels, shower curtain, and your medicine cabinet.

Unpack Bedrooms: If you put the set of linens for each bed in a separate see-through box or bag, you should be able to get the beds ready for your first night pretty easily. Bedroom organization can be unpacked by each member of the family. However, furniture arrangement and closet organization should be done first before you unpack.

Unpack the Living Room: You can unpack your couch, coffee table, and hook up your TV first. You will then have an area to relax while you continue unpacking the rest of the room. However, the living room might not contain many essentials, so this can be one of the last rooms to unpack aside from the essential items.

Unpack Storage Spaces Last

One of the last areas to unpack in your new home is storage rooms. Items stored in the garage are usually not essential, so they can be unpacked last. The patio items can be unpacked and set up at your leisure once you unpack the rest of the house.
