How to Make Your New Home More Inviting After Moving to St. Louis

Settling into a new house leaves plenty of opportunity to finally design the home you have always wanted for your family. Once your St. Louis movers finish unpacking all of your moving boxes, chances are that you will want to get everything put away in its proper place, so that you can invite all of your new neighbors over for a housewarming party.

In order to make sure that your home leaves a great first impression, the trick is to make your home as inviting as possible. By making your home more inviting, your guests will have a more enjoyable experience, which will ensure that your family falls in love with their new home and neighborhood.

Simply use these tips from All My Sons Moving & Storage St. Louis, on how to make your home more inviting, and get ready to have your guests wanting to come back time and time again!

Use soft textiles. Nothing seems more inviting than having a ton of layers of plush rugs or soft pillows for guests to enjoy. You can even take it a step further and opt for deep furniture, soft ottomans, and floor pillows. If you really want to take the soft textile idea and run with it, then frame textiles for wall art.

Take advantage of your door and entryway. Since this is the first impression that your guests will make of your home, do not forget to decorate it when making your home more inviting. St. Louis movers suggest making sure that the stoop of your home is clean. Adding a welcome mat and a wreath or some door plants will do wonders for brightening up the outside of your home. Once you are done with the outside entrance, all you need to do is add a large leafy plant or faux tree to the inside of your front door, along with a family photo and some vases, maybe even a small foyer table for them to place belongings - an immediate way to make guests feel more welcome.

Carefully arrange your table seating. Nothing is more uncomfortable other than having to awkwardly navigate around the chairs of your dining table. This will not only make your guests feel uncomfortable getting up, but will also not do anything to make your new St. Louis home more inviting. Avoid putting furniture so closely together that no one can walk through. Instead, try to make the walking situation in your home as obstacle-less as possible, this will also help your St. Louis movers out when they are moving boxes in and out.

Incorporate plants into your home. Nothing breathes life into a home quite like green leafy plants. Plants are known for their calming and relaxing effect, so make sure to incorporate a couple in order to make your home more inviting and make your guests want to stay a little longer.
