Five of the most common home updates
What’s the first thing you do when you move home? Well, apart from cracking open the champagne and toasting a long and happy life living in the new property, you’ll be itching to make a few improvements to put your own individual mark on the house.
Some updates are more common than others, but have you ever wondered what parts of the house people change first once the removal truck drives away?
We’ll share them with you at Pers Removals just for fun.
Have you ever walked into somebody’s house and instantly took a dislike to their carpet? It happens more often than you think, particularly if the carpet has a bold print, and might not suit everyone’s taste. Carpets are one of the first items people replace when they move home. As soon as they can afford it the flooring is gone!
Window features such as curtains, blinds and net curtains are replaced sooner rather than later too. Okay, you could make do with the existing features for a short while but as soon as you find your feet, you’ll want to replace the curtains as quick as you can, to match your other furnishings.
Fresh paint, new wallpaper and matching furnishings are next on the list; the existing colour scheme might not be to your liking. Changing the decor is a relatively quick fix. You can go through each room in question changing the look of the interior and making it more to your personal taste.
Out of all the rooms that help to sell properties the kitchen is arguably the main focal point. Sometimes though, you know the kitchen isn’t to your taste or it could do with upgrading but that can be a good factor as you negotiate the asking price of the house. Give the home a new look with a swanky new kitchen and this becomes the social hub of the dwelling.
The bathroom in a property is a strong selling feature but this is another area that might not suit your individual taste. Wonders can be worked in this area by adding fresh decor, new shower curtains and different accessories, plus modern bathroom suites aren’t that expensive, especially if you shop for them when the sales are on at home improvement stores.
Bring a bathroom up to date and it’ll look just as good as all the other updates you have made in your new home. If you need assistance with the removal you can contact us at Pers, our main contact number is 0845 603 5527.
What Our Clients Say
‘This is just to thank you and your team for the fantastic service during my move from Crouch End to Bexley. Everything was packed beautifully and the crew who moved me were fantastic, remaining friendly and good-humoured throughout. The piano was successfully moved from the first floor and everything arrived intact. It was really worth having the packing service as well, and my stress levels were kept well under control, so well done!’

‘Excellent company – gave me a really good price and fantastic service. We had the full packing service on the Monday, then they finished packing, and moved us on the Tuesday – on time and on schedule. Kav even had five guys on the job, on the Tuesday morning, which kept us on schedule. No breakages, everything was well packed: highly recommended.
We’ll be moving again in the next year, this time with a piano – we hope to use Pers Removals again!’

‘Three charming chaps arrived to move my piano from Maidenhead to West London. They took time to plan the moving process and communicated well with each other. They had several steps to cope with inside the house, and a few outside. I was expecting the piano to be bumped about – but not at all. Such care was taken – the piano could have been a newborn baby and would have come to no harm! Now that I have found Pers I will definitely use them again.’
