The holiday season has arrived, and for many people, that means it’s time to start thinking about moving furniture to accommodate all the holiday decorations, dinners, and guests. It can be a huge challenge to transform your living room to make room for a Christmas tree or to move your dining room table to accommodate all of your guests. Decorating for the holidays, on the other hand, doesn’t have to be a chore with a little prior planning and some helpful hints.
Here are a few pointers to help you move your furniture with ease for the holidays
Tip #1: Stock up on tools for the move
You’ll need a few essential tools to help you move your furniture, including a furniture dolly, and a moving strap for support. You may also want to think about using protective covers or blankets to keep your furniture from getting scuffed or damaged.
Tip #2: Hire movers OR Find a friend
Moving heavy furniture can be physically demanding, so it’s always a good idea to get the help of a few friends or family members. This will not only make the job easier, but it will also help you avoid accidentally dropping or damaging any of your furniture.
Tip #3: Take your time to avoid accidents
Quick reminder: it’s important to take your time and be careful. Don’t rush the process; remember to lift with your legs, not your back. If you’re unsure how to properly lift or move a piece of furniture, do some research or seek assistance from a professional.
If necessary, disassemble: Some pieces of furniture, such as bunk beds or large sectionals, may be too large or awkward to move in one piece. In these cases, disassembling the furniture before moving it may be necessary. Keep track of all the screws, bolts, and other hardware so you can easily reassemble the furniture once it’s moved.
Tip #4: Don’t forget to clean up!
After you’ve moved all of your furniture and decorated it for the holidays, make sure to clean up and store any tools or equipment you used.
Just remember, you got this!
Decorating for the holidays can be much easier with a little planning, and some helpful tools. Just take your time, ask for help when you need it, and use the proper tools for the job, and you’ll be well on your way to a beautifully decorated and perfectly arranged holiday home.
