When moving in together, it’s important to think about the impact it will have on your personal space.
Moving in with your loved one is a beautiful and exciting rite of passage, however sharing your home always has its ups and downs. High street retailer Robert Dyas has put together five top tips to help lessen the strain of cohabitation by getting prepped beforehand.
Robert Dyas Head of Marketing, Rebecca Waters, said, “When moving in together, it’s important to think about the impact it will have on your personal space. Thoughtfully organising and decorating a home together is not only a great way to foster intimacy, it also helps to stop arguments from erupting at a later date.”
Top 5 Tips for Moving in Together
1. Sort out your storage
Moving in together often means having to find a home for twice as much ‘stuff’ as you had before. Storage is therefore key. There are a number of ingenious ways to keep your shared items stowed away safely and save some space at the same time. For example, this H&L Underbed Storage Bag (£7.49) is an easy way to keep bulky items like extra bedding or winter coats packed away until they’re needed.
This foldable storage box (£5.29) is another useful container to have on hand. When it’s not being used, it can be folded flat and easily put away.
Or, for a more permanent addition to your home, this beautiful Packmate Faux Leather Two Seat Ottoman with Storage (£23.79) is not only an attractive solution to storage issues, it also doubles as extra seating.
2. Save on wardrobe space
When it comes to storage, there is no bigger source of conflict than the wardrobe. Alleviate some of the stress of sharing your wardrobe space by getting a wardrobe organiser (£6.99). As well as saving space, it will also help to keep your clothes neatly folded.
Accessories can often clog up a closet. For men, this Russel 20-Bar Tie Hanger (£3.99) is a great way to keep your ties in order. And for women, this Russel 10-Hook Accessory Rack (£3.99) can be used to keep all of your scarves and belts in one place.
If your wardrobe really is fit to burst and you can’t bear to part with any of your clothes, this Addis Garment Rail (£14.99) can be a real lifesaver.
And don’t forget to stock up on hangers while you’re at it. These wooden clothes hangers (£19.99) are a stylish and practical option that are sturdy enough to handle heavy items like coats.
3. Declutter your bathroom
Keeping countertops clear works wonders in the bathroom. Invest in a storage unit (£16.99) in order to keep your toiletries within reach without cluttering up the room.
Stop arguments about encroaching items of make-up from brewing by using a cosmetics organiser (£4.99).
This handy styling station (£18.99) Is a great way to keep all of your hairstyling gadgets in one place. The mesh base helps them to cool down quicker and there’s a compartment at the back for storing cables. You can even hook the station onto a handrail for easy access.
4. Stock up on extension cables
It’s easy to forget how important extension cables can be when it comes to organising a room, but if you and your partner both want to charge your phones at the same time, it’s essential that you have at least one on hand.
To save you from fumbling around for the extension cable on the floor, this plug tower (£19.99) stands upright, making it much more easily accessible.
Another option is the PowerCube Extended Plug Point (£16.49), which comes with a unique removable adhesive mounting station so you can fix it in whatever position is most convenient for you.
5. Pick out your bedding together
Since the bedroom is the most intimate room in the home, it’s important to make sure you both have a say in how it looks. Settle on colours and patterns that you both like and keep it comfy.
This Bianca Cotton Spring Print Bed Set (£31.99 - £53.99) has an elegant floral pattern that is designed to complement a range of decors.
Or, for a minimalist look, this Catherine Lansfield Minimalist Duvet Set (£24.99 - £44.99) is a simple, yet stylish selection that has wide appeal for both men and women.
Whatever design you two eventually agree on, relish this opportunity to combine your aesthetics into style that uniquely represents the pair of you.
