You are moving to new a house, that’s a lot of pressure and excitement, isn’t it? Before moving into your new home, you need to make sure you have everything you need on your list so that you don’t miss out on anything after moving to your new house. Your checklist should have a list of essentials; these are things you will need immediately when you shift.
The checklist will also help you estimate how much you need to spend on things and weigh the costs of these things. It is important to note that the list does not include furnishing, as it greatly depends on your taste.
Refrigerator – You will need a fridge for your new house to store food, drinks, and whatever else you might need to keep cold.
Range – A stove is needed in every kitchen, especially if you are going to cook for yourself; you will need it.
Microwave – A microwave is a must-have, especially if you’re someone who doesn’t like to cook on the range.
Dishwashers – Dishwashers are very helpful, especially if you have a lot of dishes to clean. You can just put all your dishes on this appliance and get it washed for you.
Pots and Pans – If you’re not going to be using the range for cooking, you will need pots and pans to cook with on the stove. You will need something to store your food in, right?
Tableware – Plates, cups, silverware, etc. You will need these for when you have guests over. And if not guests, you will need these for yourself and your family.
Kitchen Towels – Now, this item comes in handy when you need to wipe your hand when they get wet while washing your vegetables or fruit. Kitchen towels can also be used to wipe the kitchen counter clean.
Napkins – Napkins come in handy when you’re eating, whether you’re using them to wipe your mouth or hands.
Sponges – A sponge is a must-have for cleaning the kitchen counters and other appliances. It helps absorb all the oil and food stains that occur on the kitchen countertops or ranges while cooking.
