A Guide to Moving in With Partners


You’ve been changing apartments quite often lately. You’re not to blame. You’re a stable person, but you just can’t seem to keep up with the rent.

Speaking to your landlord didn’t get you the results that you hoped for. Well, you should consider moving in with your partner.

Generally speaking, it’s not recommendable to move in together out of necessity. But you’re not doing it only out of necessity.

The person is the love of your life and you’re ready for a different level of intimacy. If this is the case, then what are you waiting for? Make the move already.

Use the following tips and you’ll have a smooth transition.


Have that big conversation about space

Before you actually do anything, it’s of paramount importance to have a deep conversation. When you’re moving into another person’s apartment, you’re basically invading their personal space.

Okay, “invading” is a strong word. The place will now be for the both of you. You and your significant other may have different ideas about how things should be done.

Maybe you want to go to bed early, while your partner feels like staying up late and listen to music. There are times when you’ll feel overwhelmed and even upset.

It’s better to talk about issues like these ones from the very beginning so as to avoid misunderstandings. While you’re at it, you can talk about money.


Get through toss conflicts

A house move is a perfect opportunity to get rid of some items. Do you really need that coffee table? No, you don’t.

But you do need the collection of books that you’ve been hanging onto for years. Your significant other will advise you to declutter, making helpful suggestions.

The surface are may not be enough to accommodate all belongings. Take a close look at your belongings and determine, with your partner, what you’re going to keep and what you’re going to throw away. Conflicts will arise as the two of you won’t see eye to eye on all matters. You don’t want to ruin everything. So, what can you do?

Consider the feelings of your significant other and solve any space issues that you may have by renting a storage unit. This way, you’ll have a win-win situation.


Create your own little nook

Living together isn’t easy, although it should be. Space will work great for you and your partner if you learn how to make good use of it.

When splitting an apartment, personal space is hard to come by. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t create your little nook. You don’t have to take up the entire room. All you need is a little bit of space.  You can, for instance, save space with a bookcase featuring cushioned reading space. Select any corner of the room and transform it into your personal nook.

If you’re not that much into reading, you can do other things like listen to music or check your social media accounts. Whatever makes you happy.
