We’ve prepared a ready-to-use and easy-to-read ultimate list of items you need to buy when moving into a new house in Toronto. This list will largely depend upon things that you already have. But trust us we as professional movers can tell you that the important part of the move is that it’s safe and as stress-free as possible. We as experienced movers with years of experience can help you with this list as well as with the move itself. So, let’s begin our shopping journey! Let’s dive in!
Bedroom and living room items you need to buy when moving into a new house in Toronto
We will provide you with a list of things that you’ll need for your bedroom first. We assume that you already have beds and other necessities even if you’re a first-time homeowner or you’re just relocating for the umpteenth time. So, let’s see what’ll you need:
- Bedside table, an alarm clock plus a bedside lamp (if this is your style)
- Pillows and duvets are a must-have and don’t forget covers for duvets and cases for pillows
- Pads or floor protectors
- Mattresses it’s always a good idea to change one if it’s not new
- Mirrors and some fresh paintings for your new home
- Quilts, throws, and blankets are a good idea for this upcoming long and cold winter
- New curtains are always in, or you can use some eco-friendly that is more and more popular nowadays
- Additional or new drawers and wardrobes
This is just what the majority of people usually buy, upgrade or repair. Now when it comes to the living room, most people like to redecorate it, so they end up buying new things. Some of these things are the coffee tables, throw pillows, lamps, extra routers or modems, TV stands or wall mounts, a new TV is always a good idea, house plants (since they can’t be moved usually) and last but not the least couch or sofa. You can make a list of things that you would like to have in your living room before you organize your move with the long distance movers Canada has to offer. This way you will not have to think about this once the moving process starts.
Kitchen and bathroom items you need to buy
Depending on your kitchen size you should buy things accordingly. If you need any extra space think about how to turn your new attic into a functional space. Now let’s see what you can get for that new kitchen of yours. Modern kitchen utensils such as mixing bowls, spatulas, wooden spoons, pots, cutlery, glassware, cleaning, and washing chemicals, mitts for the oven, and a bunch of different containers for food.
Some people also tend to change things like:
- Other small kitchen appliances (mixer, blender, rice cooker, etc.).
The bathroom is an essential part of our house. We usually tend to have our morning and night routines in there. So, we would like to make use of this little space as much as we can because it can usually be crowded easily so you need to maximize the bathroom space. People tend to buy things such as baths math, shower curtain, toiled brushes, wastebasket, toilet paper (lots of it), toilet paper holder, towels, towel racks, a humper for dirty clothes, a new showerhead, a plunger… Other necessities include a toothbrush, toothpaste, hair drier, shampoo, soap, and other beauty products as well as hygienic products.
Outdoor furniture and tools for your new house
People usually don’t recommend taking your outdoor furniture unless it’s in perfect condition. It can usually get damaged more than indoor items because they’re exposed to the sun and weather in general. Just be careful how you’re labeling your moving boxes if you’re moving anything yourself and be warned that outside furniture and other items get damaged more easily than indoor items, due to differences and quality and exposure to the outside. So, we’ve prepared a few outdoor furniture items that people usually buy when they’re moving into their new homes in Toronto. Some of them are:
- Outdoor tables both big and small
- Furniture of any kind wooden, polymer, bamboo wicker, iron, or aluminum
- Trash can
- Solar lamps or garden lamps
- Grills and smokers
- Playground items for kids
The list can go on and on for days. Now you’ll also need some tools for your new house. A lot of things will need to be assembled, you’ll also have to drill or nail things. So, some of the most common tools are hammers, screwdrivers, flashlights (there are many useful options out there at an affordable cost), candles, matches, lighters, drills, batteries, ladders, tapes (masking, electric, duck, masking, flooring…), pliers… When it comes to tools your options are truly endless.
Other items you need to buy when moving into a new house in Toronto
Cleaning items are things you shouldn’t forget to buy. Therefore, you should get some paper towels, dishwashing tablets, detergents, brooms, dusters, mops, buckets, laundry detergents, softeners, vacuum cleaner, all-purpose cleaner, windows cleaner, gloves, chemicals for cleaning your electronics like PC, keyboard, mouse… As with the other ingredients, this list can be very long, but these are some of the most common things. You can add or remove any as you may like or dislike them. Nowadays people are more eco-friendly and tend to make their cleaning products. You can find a lot of interesting recipes online once you are done relocating with the long distance movers Toronto has to offer.
