Moving in with your partner? If so, now that you’ve decided to take the plunge and move in together, how do you blend your unique styles? He likes the modern look and you are old time country. There’s no doubt that you’ll need to compromise in this department. But how to you begin when there are two households to move?
You may have to plan a purging party. Yes, that’s right. You will need to lighten your load if both of you want to move your belongings to your new dwelling. You can have a yard sale or make a donation to your local goodwill. Unless you are moving into a large home, then you will have to part with some of your items.
You won’t need two dining room tables or two bedroom sets, so you will need to decide which one will have the luxury of taking its new place in your home. If you can’t decide, you just may have to toss a coin. Hey, no one said this was going to be easy!
When it all comes down to it, you may need to reach a compromise. You may have to give that deer head that was hanging on your wall to your brother. He may not want that crocheted lamp sitting on his night stand, so you may have to say good-bye to your frilly décor! Compromising will make your move easier in the long run.
After you’ve managed to reach a compromise, it’s time for some fun. If your new home needs painting or papering , you can choose your colors and have a wall paper hanging party. Order a pizza and watch a good flick for an evening of togetherness and fun!
Remember that compromising doesn’t have to be a hassle; it can bring you together-making magical memories that will last a life time. Don’t forget to take before and after pictures to place in your photo album!
