Top Treats To Buy Your New Home After Your Home Removal In York
7th August, 2014
Many of us see moving into a new home as a fresh start, so it makes sense that we’d want to update our belongings after our home removal in York. Unless you have oodles of spare cash, budgets are usually tight around the time of the move (especially at Christmas!) but there are some items you can treat yourself too.
These little purchases will make your whole home feel fresh, new and bright, just as you intended. It will also cut down the amount of items you take with you.
A New Bin
Do you really want to take your old smelly bin to the new place? A new kitchen bin can cost less than £10 and you can match it to your new home décor.
A New Kettle
Staying in the kitchen, a new kettle has many more advantages than you think. We should really replace kettles every 24 months although this isn’t good for recycling. Lime scale build up and over use can make your water taste gritty so after you’ve descaled 10 times treat yourself to a new one.
There’s an old wives tale that claims you shouldn’t accept knives as a gift as they stir up trouble between the two parties. Knives do blunt easily but it’s always a joy to use new, sharpened knives for the first time. If yours are more than a year old, consider a new set for your kitchen and throw the old ones away. By treating yourself you’ll eliminate the chance of them being bought as a housewarming present and the curse being bestowed upon you!
Your washing up bowl could do with replacing, admit it!
Nothing says welcome home like a new doormat. Unless you’ve had zero rain for the last year your old one will be looking quite grubby and they really don’t wash well. For under a fiver you can pick one up from a supermarket in York.
New studies suggest that we should change our bed pillows every six months. This seems a bit excessive as some people keep their pillows for decades. Your first night’s sleep in your new home, however, will be all the more wonderful if you have soft fluffy pillows that still have a bit of bounce!
For a Bigger Home Removal in York Budget
If you have money set aside for your new home there are larger items you can buy that still won’t break the bank but will give your home that fresh new feel.
- Curtains: Curtains can change the décor and feel of a room in an instant and they don’t have to be brand new.
- Bedding: New sheets and bedding always feel luxurious, what better time to indulge than when moving home?
- Rugs: No matter how often we clean our rugs over time they do fade and look grotty. A new rug spruces up a room perfectly.
Small Kitchen Appliances
Many people realise just how dirty their small kitchen appliances have become when packing items for a home move.
Items such as:
- Food Processors
- Toasty Machines
- Bread Makers
Can look quite grubby in your new surroundings. There are always offers on these small appliances online or in catalogues and some sell new home bundles that cover every angle.
