Moving into a new house is such an emotional time. It should be one of excitement, but it usually ends up being one more of exhaustion, crankiness and general irritability at everything not quite being in place and being the way that you want it to be yet. That’s fine and to be expected – but is should also be noted that it’s going to take a long time to get it absolutely perfect and screaming of your personality!
It’s in the detail
Eradicating all traces of the people that lived in your property before you is quite a challenge. Unless you start from scratch, then there’s almost no way that it can possibly be done. If you’re in a new-build home then you won’t have this problem, but for others it can be a nightmare and a real drawback on making your house a home to call your own. There are little things that you can change over time rather than doing one big overhaul (as tempting as it may be).
