Moving into a Smaller Home

Downsizing Tips from Packers and Movers in Brighton, CO & Colorado Springs, CO

Families of all shapes and sizes experience the need to downsize, whether that’s because the kids have all gone to college, you and your spouse has retired, you’re starting out on your own, or you’re moving to an urban area with smaller housing units. If you’re planning a move into a smaller space, there are plenty of ways to make both your move and your unpacking, organizing, and settling in easier. Our expert packers and movers have put together this list of tips to help.

 

  • Make a Floorplan - Moving into a smaller space doesn’t have to feel like it’s taking away your ability to do daily tasks, hobbies, or activities. Get a layout of your new space and consider the functionality of each room. Plan where to place larger pieces of furniture so that you know in advance that you have space to sleep, cook, host, and hobby how you want.
  • Downsize Your Belongings - One problem our packers and movers have witnessed with clients who are downsizing is the desire to bring the same amount of stuff in your current home into your new, smaller home. Make a point to purge any duplicate items in your kitchen, linen closet, and clothing. Not only does moving less stuff make your move easier, but it will make settling into your new home more comfortable, as well.
  • Get the Right Resources - Smaller spaces can be just as functional as larger spaces if you bring the right resources. Closets can double in capacity if you add extra shelving. Consider hanging some of your storage needs on the walls, like a jewelry organizer, a ceiling-hanging pot rack, or a filing rack for mail and paperwork.
