Posted on: January 9, 2020 | by: Hall Lane Movers January 22, 2020

Cross country moving can be a challenge, here are some tips on how to make your new house feel like a home

You finished moving, unpacked all of your stuff and are sitting in your new house. Now what? After cross country moving, adjusting to your new place can be a bit jarring, especially if you have moved to a completely different state. Hall Lane Moving & Storage is here to offer some advice on how to make your new house feel like home.

Familiar scents

Science shows that memory and emotion share a strong connection with the sense of smell. If you want your new house to feel familiar, populate it with candles or familiar scents from your old home. Did you have a favorite vanilla-scented candle? If so, find one and put it in your main living space.

Hang art

Art is not only enjoyable to look at but it’s also a great way to personalize a house. You would be surprised by how many people move into a new place and neglect to hang some wall art. Hanging art also includes setting up old photos of family or friends.

Get a pet

If you can, getting a pet is a great way to build a sense of home and comfort. Nothing feels quite as good as coming home from a long day of work and having your furry friend waiting for you with love. Pets are a large time investment, so only get one if you can dedicate the time and effort.

Host a housewarming party

Another good way to make your new house feel like home after cross country moving is to host a housewarming party. Consider inviting your new neighbors so you can get to know them better. Having people over can make your house feel more familiar and ease you into the transition.
