Cleaning a house is a monumentally more challenging and exhausting chore than cleaning an apartment. Although more space in a home is enjoyable, youve now got more ground to cover with a broom and mop. Visit Macys.com and invest in a Dyson vacuum that will help keep your floors clean and spotless. Not only will the superior-quality vacuum help give you flawless floors and carpeting, it can make cleaning a pleasant experience, rather than a dreaded household duty.
Since youre now responsible for your own home repairs and around-the-house tasks, youll want a well-stocked supply of tools. ToolGuyd.com provides a list of safety gear and 12 basic tools that every homeowner-turned handyman should own. For unexpected repairs and home DIY projects, youll need to start a tool collection that includes, for example, a utility knife, tape measure, a variety of screwdrivers, and adjustable and combination wrenches. Along with the Tool Guyd recommended list of tools, youll also want to stock up on paint supplies, sandpaper, an electrical outlet tester, nuts, screws, nails, and sandpaper.
For most new homeowners, splurging on fancy decor isnt within the budget. Get creative with how you personalize your home and give it character. Shop at flea markets for photo frames, vases or a vintage piece of furniture that you can refurbish with a bright paint color and fun patterns. Visit CasaSugar.com for home inspiration. Decorate a plain white vase with orange washi tape. Frame an old map to cover bare wall space. Glue metallic buttons to a lamp for glammed-out lighting. DIY decor projects can also become a new hobby and creative outlet for a happy homemaker.
Enjoying a new home is the most exciting when you can share it with your friends and family. Stock up on party-hosting essentials such as wine and cocktail glasses, a cocktail shaker, a serving platter, place mats, a table runner, and basic dishes and cutlery. Dont forget to create a soothing playlist for your guests to enjoy during your dinner party. Plan an upcoming housewarming party and play host and hostess by inviting guests and cooking them a delectable dinner.
