Now that the ink has dried on your sales agreement and you’ve moved your belongings in, or at least started the packing process, have you purchased these crucial items to set up your new retreat? From home security to an indulgent new mattress, here are the top items you absolutely need to purchase as soon as you move into your Canadian luxury home.
New locks. Duplicating keys isn’t exactly hard, meaning you never know how many people might have one for your new home. Start fresh and prioritize security by swapping out the locks ASAP, and get a few extra keys while you’re at it, for cleaners or guests should they need them.
A home security system. In addition to changing locks, make sure you invest in an alarm system for your luxury home too. Smart home systems are incredibly advanced these days and can even send alerts right to your phone. In Canada, having a home security system can even save you money on home insurance.
A high-end mattress. Now that you’re done with bidding wars, last minute showings and endless packing, it’s time to catch up on your sleep! While it’s often best to wait until you’ve lived in a space before you buy furniture, go ahead and splurge on a mattress as soon as you’re ready. Your body will thank you.
Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. In the excitement of moving in, it can be easy to forget these key safety devices. Invest in carbon monoxide detectors if you don’t already have them and swap out the batteries in your smoke detector.
The coffeemaker of your dreams. All this unpacking and organizing drains one’s energy! Now is a great time to buy that European pour-over system or voice-activated espresso machine to keep your energy levels up and your mornings that much better. As a bonus, it’s also nice to have on hand for when your new neighbours drop by.
