London House RemovalsMoving from a big house in the suburbs to a trendy apartment in the heart of London can be a bit overwhelming and exhausting for the entire family. It is true that usually, the house removals come with many changes some positive and some not so much but you always have to stay open-minded. Here are some things that you should be aware of when relocation from a house to an apartment in order to make the most of this opportunity.

The Things You Will Miss the Most After Your Home Relocation

Let’s be honest there will be a lot of things that you are going to miss in your new place. But there are still ways to improve your way of living and ensure you and your family have everything you could possibly need.

  • The yard – If you have a garden or a yard it will be significantly smaller than what you’re used to. You may be unable to grow vegetables or play ball with your kids in the backyard. This is alright, you live in the middle of London now. The Old capital is famous for its parks and playgrounds, you can easily go to one of the Royal Parks and enjoy some family time. A big plus is that you no longer have to take care of your garden and lawn.
  • Not enough storage space – You will have to say goodbye to the big basement, vast attic and the bottomless pantry. In your new apartment, there won’t be any. And that is actually really good. Why do need to be buried under so many things? You don’t know what is half of the stuff locked in the attic, but if it is in a box it must be important, right? Wrong, get rid of all the rubbish that you hoarded throughout the years only because you had where to store it. Free your life and we guarantee you, you will feel much better.

From Big to Small, Is It Really That Bad?

London apartmentNowadays everybody is crazy about the simple and minimalistic design. If you want to have a trendy, stylish home, keep it plain but modern. The good news is that relocating to an apartment in London is all about keeping it small. There is not enough space in the British capital or there is not enough reasonably priced space, you have to be inventive. Here a couple of positive sides of living the simple life:

  • Modern apartments are made to be energy efficient so not only you will pay less for utility bills, but you will also help the environment.
  • You will have to change your heavy furniture for something more compact thus it is time for a shopping spree.
  • Use the relocation as an excuse to get rid of all the things you don’t use – clothes, books, electronics. If you haven’t used it in the past three years you are never going to.
