New research from Co-operative Insurance has uncovered an interesting fact relating to house moves: they found that almost a third of first-time property buyers purchase all the furniture for their new home before they have actually measured the rooms. Many of these people then found that their furniture didn’t actually fit comfortably into their new homes, with some of them even damaging the walls and doorframes as they attempted to fit their too-large items into the room.

If you’re moving into your first home, or even if you’re used to moving but simply want to make a fresh start by treating yourself to some new furniture, it’s essential to measure everything up before you take the plunge and make the purchase. Moving house is exciting and it’s easy to get carried away buying everything that catches your eye, but it’s important to think carefully about any pre-move purchases you make. You don’t want to end up with half-empty rooms and small furnishings that look lost in a large room, or huge pieces that overwhelm the space. With a little care, some basic measurements and a simple floor plan, you can ensure that your new items work well for your home and avoid significant stress and worry during your move.
