Fortunately, moving can be a fun experience as long as you prepare accordingly. Also, it’s going to be a lot harder if you don’t have the right tools on hand.

Moving heavy furniture is never easy, but it’s going to be much more difficult if you don’t have the right tips and tricks under your belt. Whether you are moving locally or moving to another city, furniture is probably one of the most expensive and complicated items to pack. Furniture needs to be protected due to its huge size. 

Fortunately, we’ve compiled a comprehensive guide that will show you how to move heavy furniture with ease. Follow these tips to ensure your furniture arrives in your new home in good shape.

Inventory checklist

Make a list of everything you own, including the types of furniture and electronics, and take pictures of your setup. It will become easier to move when you have this information handy. After you have completed your setup in a new location, you can review the checklist. This way you can check if your furniture or items have been missing.

Floor Plan

Measure the large furniture pieces in your current home to see if they will fit through the doors and into your new home. When it comes to arranging your furniture in your new home, floor plans are valuable. The furniture or items must align with the floor plan of the new location. 


You should have a thorough inspection of all your furniture prior to the packaging and after the completion of setup. You can take help from your friends or family to make the task easier. If there are damages to certain furniture, you can update it in the checklist.

Professionally Clean

Before packing and moving, clean your drapes and furniture. During the moving process, dust and debris may scratch hard surfaces. The packaging material must be durable and of high quality in order to protect the items.

Bubble wrap

Bubble wrap is an excellent choice for wrapping your furniture. Furniture legs should be wrapped in bubble wrap or removed. Wrap shields your items and valuables from damage. It’s relatively a better option to include a thicker bubble wrap for ensuring better safety.


Some furniture can be bigger to go through the door and must be disassembled. You may need to remove the legs from tables or manually remove bed frames. So, modular furniture can be a way to limit such hassles. Modular furniture can be easily disassembled without any prior experience but, you can also hire someone for it.


Delicates and fragile items may need extra care during moving. For extra safety and precaution, you should crate Mirrors, artworks, and other items. The crates are usually durable and can withstand shocks during transportation.

Moving should be convenient and hassle-free. Hence, to minimize the overall effort and stress, modular furniture can be a better option. Since modular furniture can be customized according to requirements and the sizes of the partitions can be changed according to your needs. Modular furniture is easy to move around since the entire structure is lightweight and convenient.

Feng shui and good fortune for your family

Feng shui is derived from the Chinese term meaning “feng” as in wind and “shui” as in water. The concept actually comes from the tale of human life and its connection to the elements surrounding it in the environment they live in. In terms of Asian culture, it connects with “tao” (way of living) while following the conducts of Taoism (following the principles that directly shows a reflection on nature).
Having a perfect balance and the flow of energy to make an optimum living space is something we all go for. Attaining harmony, prosperity, health, and wealth from our environment is what feng shui is all about.

Among the principles followed by feng shui, the ones that are very important are: the commanding position, the five elements, and the ‘bagua’ map.

The commanding position

Talks about feng shui can never end without mentioning the command position. Placing the essential furniture according to the right command position is the best way of maintaining good feng shui at home. The bed, desk, and stove each is affiliated with the individual, career, and wealth respectively. Making sure that one can see the door while near any of this furniture means you have avoided blocking the good feng shui at home.

The five elements

Comprised of fire, earth, metal, water, and wood, these five elements balance out the ambiance in the room. Each of these elements has been connected to a different aspect of life.
The fire element brings recognition, the earth brings romance, metal brings being artful, traveling luck, and water brings fortune for a career while wood beings well-being and success financially.
For these elements to bring in their corresponding luck, having at least one of these items be it fire or electronics, earthen pot ware, shiny and accents of metal, crystal, and water-centric arts or indoor plants or flowers is recommended. These key items can easily help keep in check the feng shui.
Depending upon the elemental effect you require, you can add more of that color in your space. The color associations with the elements are:
Earth – Yellow, orange, and brown (tones)
Metal – White, gray, shades of white and metallic color
Water – Black or darker shade of blue
Wood – Teal
Fire – Red

The bagua map

The energy map for feng shui that blends in with your floor plans is the bagua map. The term “bagua” refers to eight in Chinese terminology that represents the eight aspects of life. Each aspect ranges from family, children, health, career, wealth, supportive people, fame, knowledge, and partnership. Among the eight principles, tips that bring in wealth, prosperity, and harmony in the family are:

1. The feng shui trinity

Kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom, these three spaces need to be looked after because the feng shui trinities are closely related to the well- being of the owner. For balanced internal energy flow, managing these spaces is very crucial.

2. Keep your entry passage open

Placing a lot of things right behind your front door can block the proper flow of air in the home. Keeping your coats and shoe racks away from the front door can help you clear out the energy that gets blocked out. It is best to choose the decluttering trick to ensure a spacious and perfect living space. Using red paint at your door drives in good energy and opportunity at your home.

3. Bring in an aquarium at your home

Consider the best décor as well as money-attracting item, an aquarium placed at either the north or southeast side of the room can get your house away from financial burden. Placing eight red fishes and one blackfish in your aquarium draws positive energy from the surroundings aiding to give your home good luck.

4. Proper ventilation and lighting

No matter the space, having proper ventilation and lighting is a must. Ventilation solves all matters related to airflow while the lighting further supports attracting good feng shui. Mirror placement in a way that it reflects the light further or focuses on an artistic piece of work and a good corner of the room can also make proper lighting more attainable.

5. Decorate your room with plants

Plants are best known to aid in good airflow and purifying the air around. Placing plants for decorative purposes can serve as both a beauty enhancer as well as a positive energy supplier at home. English ivy, money tree, jade plants, peace lily, snake plant, spiral plants are some plant species that can purify the air and bring in prosperity at home.

6. Dinning setup

Dinning space not only requires decluttering but also keeping things that have a relevant symbol to attract good health and prosperity. The placement of the dining table shouldn’t be right in front of the door. The best way to bring in wealth in the house is to place a mirror in your dining space while avoiding placing it in your bedroom. Also, rather than an empty dining table, placing fruits shows a sign of goodwill. In the case of fruits, oranges are considered the source of good luck and uplift the positive vibes in your home.

7. Décor your space

As crystals belong to the category of water element in terms of feng shui, decorating your home space or placing decorative items inlaid with citrine crystal can promote good feng shui at home. It also neutralizes the energies from the electrical devices which is the main reason for placing crystal decoration at home is its effect of creating a calmness around the room. Also, diagonally placing a three-legged golden frog or an elephant carrying money also helps attract money and good luck at home. Other décor items that serve the same purpose are Three golden owls, horses with coins, evil eye trees, and so on.
