Three Top Tips for Cohabiting

Moving out of your family home and beginning the first adventure to your very own home can be very exciting, especially if you’re moving in with somebody else, but it can also be a little nerve-racking too! There’s lots of different tips to making the move a smooth one, so we’ve gathered some of our favourite and most useful tips below.

Moving in with a partner

If you’re both moving from your own family homes into one together, you may now have double the number of belongings to move. Before you move, sort through your own belongings and decide what will come to the new home, what could stay at your respective family homes and what can be sold, tipped or sent to charity. You won’t need two of everything, and you may want to move furniture from just one house into the new one, so it’s best to have a rough idea before the big move comes around.

Compromise on vision

Two people coming together likely means two different visions and tastes are coming together too. Compromising on these is key to living peacefully in your new home together, ensuring you can both enjoy it to its full capacity after a hard day at work. The best way to do this is to purchase new items together that you both love, rather than trying to equally divide your own individual belongings.

Invest in a storage unit

As the excitement builds to moving into your first home together, you may be buying lots of new items like large pieces of furniture and cutlery for example. If this is the case, then you may want to invest in a storage unit for the meantime, so that your family home doesn’t become cluttered with things. You could even store important documents from the moving process in here, to prevent them from getting lost.

The beauty of a storage unit is that they are secure too, so you can rest assured all your belongings or documents are safe with CCTV monitoring and round the clock surveillance, rather than placed in your garden shed or garage. It gives you much more essential space too, during what will be a very cluttered and busy time.
