Preparing your Marital Home

When it comes to getting married, we tend to focus mostly on the wedding, itself, when planning, and often neglect planning for the home. Newlyweds will find themselves moving into a new home, and we’re often not quite as prepared as we could be. And, while that’s not a deal breaker, it can still be prudent to consider this in advance. Here are a few tips for preparing for your post-wedding home.

First and foremost, there are the basics. Most likely, we all know these and won’t forget them, but they warrant a mention, regardless. Most important is furniture like a bed, table, chairs, sofa, etc. Then, of course, there’s the matter of first aid and other essentials. Again, this is more a reminder to anyone who maybe got distracted by their upcoming special day.

Next, there’s the matter of decoration. While this is less necessary, it can be argued that the positive effect decor has on your emotional states make more important than we often acknowledge. Consider what feeling you want your home to elicit when planning your layout. For example, if you want your home to be a calming place, cool colors like blue are for you, but warmer colors can create an exciting atmosphere. Of course, decorations are an important facet here, as well.  Consider displaying your favorite art, or, if you, yourself, are an artist, some of your own favorite works. You can also use flowers to decorate your new home. It’s hard to go wrong with a floral motif.

Lastly, you’re going to want to make sure you have proper storage for clothing, among other things. The Container Store can help you make sure you have all the space you need to avoid cluttering your new home with a variety of storage options, as well as travel alternatives for the honeymoon!
