Moving Over the Summer? Need New Kids Furniture?

Moving Over the Summer? Need New Kids Furniture?

Moving is so exciting, and getting settled in your new home – while it is a lot of work – is the beginning of a new chapter for everyone in the family. For kids, school, playgrounds and friends in the new neighborhood are important, but getting comfortable inside the new home with new kids furniture is probably the most important part of making a move. This is where most of their time will be spent, so making sure kids love their surroundings and have a great environment to grow before Back to School is critical.

At Maxtrix we help families furnish their kids' rooms every day, so we have a few tips that you may want to consider as you get settled in your new home:

1. Plan Ahead for Delivery Times 

While it’s fun and exciting to “camp” in your new home for a few nights, you want to make sure that the essentials are organized before moving day. Plan for time to lay out the new space, identify what you may need and estimate between 3–12 weeks for new kids furniture and decor pieces to arrive. Set-up may also take a few days, so make sure you have some time planned in before the room has to be perfectly set up.

2. Room Selection is Key

While most kids won’t get the largest room in the house, there are usually some choices to be made as to which room in the home will be best suited for them. Try involving them in the decision. Depending on their age, they may have some interesting perspectives for you to consider. However, even if you chose to ignore their wishes, you can get a good understanding of what really matters to them to get comfortable in their new surroundings. Little preferences like the ability to sleep close to a sibling, shut their door for privacy, or a view of their parent's room gives a good insight into the fears and motivations that can easily get drowned out in the excitement of the move.

3. Consider Shared Rooms

If you have the option, consider the benefits of a shared room – possibly freeing up a second room for a separate play or study space - before you make a final decision to allocate a room to each child. There are lots of reasons sharing a room may be a great choice for your family - read our top 10.

4. Room Setups that Multitask 

Give kids decision power (within reason) to determine their own surroundings. So if (per point two) you know that they are a little scared of their new surroundings, help them create “safe zones” like forts, and make sure the night lights are plugged in and working. If they are starting in their new school soon, get them set up early with a dedicated space in the home where uninterrupted studying can take place - see our preschool, elementary/middle school, and high school/college guides

Making new friends in the neighborhood? Create a welcoming environment so new friends want to hang out at your home rather than disappear into the new neighborhood. A well-set up room with plenty of space to play, relax and entertain will do the trick.
