Sheffield Removals Tips: Moving into a smaller home

Changes in circumstances can mean that you need to downsize properties; but it doesn’t always have to be a stressful experience.  With the right preparation you can make sure that you keep the things most important to you.

Considerations for downsizing

There are a number of things that you should consider if you’ve decided to downsize. Read the tips below from your Sheffield removals expert ahead of your next house move.

Decide your luxuries and necessities

One of the hardest parts of downsizing is having to say goodbye to your belongings.  One way to split your items is by making lists of the items you definitely need to keep, those that you would like to keep and the things you can get rid of.

Plan, plan plan

By planning where your furniture and belongings will fit into your new property it makes it easier to decide what items are really needed.  Be careful though; as you don’t want to fill your new living space with furniture just because you can.

Sell your unwanted items

Take advantage of selling sites such as Ebay and Gumtree to sell your unwanted items. Any money that you raise from your old items can be used for home improvements in your new place.  If there’s anything you can’t sell consider donating items to the local charity shop.  You can feel good knowing you are helping those less fortunate, whilst knowing your goods won’t go to waste.

Storage space

Can you ever have too much storage? The answer is NO! When making the decision of what furniture to take or leave think about the options.  A wardrobe or shelves have added space inside which can hold some of your other items.  Use all the space you have; don’t let any go to waste.
