Finally. You are all ready to move into your very own Apartment. You have signed the documents. The house-warming function is over. You are excited to move in, decorate and get settled.
On a nice sunny morning, you pick up the keys, stand in your dream home and look around. Where will you start? What’s the house trying to tell you? Which will be your room?Your favourite part of the house? …The story of your life, all your memories are about to roll out and play some of the most defining moments. And where do you think it will all start?
Hear these house owners share their thoughts.
THE MOMENT YOU OPEN THE WINDOWS FOR THE FIRST TIME.
The house is smelling of fresh paint and feels crispy, clean new. You just throw the windows open and welcome some fresh air. A few years down the line, it will be your nirvana haunt and your window to the world.
WHEN YOU ARE SORTING ALL THE BOXES.
There’s some element of fun, walking around the house, jumping over boxes to be unpacked and little things spread across the floor. The rediscovered flower vase and the black and white album will open up memories long forgotten.
CHECKING THE VIEW FROM THE BALCONY.
Do you look at a busy road? No, wait there’s a green canopy out there and a little bird just tweeted a hello! The neighbor’s tree is bursting with your favourite fruit, maybe?Or, it’s just vacant lands out there with the railway station at the far edge? An unfinished bridge, an under construction multi-storey, buzzing traffic or cackling buses …These new sights and sounds will soon be a part of your everyday landscape.
CHECKING THE UTILITIES.
Does the fan regulator work? Of course. The water heater, the switches, the fittings…It always happens. Turn on the tap and you are all drenched because it was the shower!
ADDRESSING ALL KINDS OF DOUBTS.
Where should you keep the television? The refrigerator has its place defined. The dining table will be perfect here? Near the window, maybe. Will it face the living room? Decisions, decisions, decisions. The plants and flowers on the left corner of the balcony, maybe? Eyeing the neighbour’s garden and telling yourself that you need their tips.
THE ROOMS THAT NEED YOUR ATTENTION.
Bringing out the IKEA and decorator magazines and catalogues.
CHECKING OUT THE NEIGHBOURHOOD.
All new locality , full of coffee shops, restaurants, stores and supermarkets waiting to be explored.
SAYING HELLO! TO YOUR HAPPY FRIENDLY NEIGHBOUR.
Nice people who drop in with a cup of coffee and some friendly tips…
And so it goes on. You have checked the escalator, the staircase, the surroundings, car park, the little garden and you are already feeling ecstatic and completely, absolutely positively at home.
The entire process of turning your apartment into a space that reflects you is about to start.
And at that moment you know that you are home.
