Moving to a new home can be an exciting adventure, but it can also be a stressful experience if not properly planned! If you are preparing to move or downsize, one of the most important tools you can have in your arsenal is a floor plan.
What is a floor plan?
A floor plan is a scale diagram of a room or suite of rooms viewed from above and used especially for planning effective use and arrangement of furnishings (as per Merriam-Webster). It should include doors, windows, light switches, and outlets.
Why is a floor plan helpful?
A floor plan is a visual representation. It can help you to imagine the layout of your space, prioritize which furniture and belongings will fit into your new space, and plan their arrangement in the new home. You can also plan to give away, sell, or donate items that won’t be making the journey with you.
A floor plan is even more important when downsizing to a smaller home or apartment, because you have less room to work with, and every inch of space counts.
Bonus: on move day, your team will have fewer questions to ask you about furniture placement, because they can follow your pre-made plan. You might even step out to refresh yourself for a few hours while they unload, and then return to make final tweaks and adjustments!
We’ll be following up with more information in a future post, but we’re always happy to help you make a floor plan for your new space.

What your friends Say
The team knew where to park and the layout of both buildings – again good research. And although I was not present for the off loading it went smoothly as well. All of the team showed expertise and an understanding of the complexities of dealing with elderly people and their families.
We would definitely recommend them!
This in my opinion is service the way it’s supposed to be. I love you all thank you so so much
I would definitely recommend Darling Solutions for your moving needs.
Kelly's team displayed the same mindfulness, caring and compassion on the job as she did during the initial consult. We are grateful to your company for helping us through this. Thank you
I highly recommend Darling Solutions to anyone.
Again, we could not have done it without them! From decluttering and packing our condo to moving and setting us up in our new home, every member of the team was hardworking, helpful, warm and extremely competent. Their attention to detail in setting up our new place was remarkable. Honourable mention to the whole team: Kelly, Shawn, Ian, Phyllis, Barb M., Barb Y. Jack, Susan, Glen and Paul. Barb M., our team leader, and Ruth, in the office, were particularly good at calming a nervous client.
We recommend Darling Solutions without reservation. We can’t thank them enough.

Adding COVID into the mix it was almost paralysing to think about. After a recommendation to Contact Darling most of that fear went away.
Professional, competent and most importantly Caring.
They made this move so smooth for my wife and her parents.
On moving day they left their old home and at the end of the day arrived in a new home with all their belongings unpacked and arranged. Completely stress and back pain free. The next day Darling took care of removing items targeted for donation and all remaining items for waste.
I cannot recommend this service enough.
Thank you so much.
Frankly thank-you does not even cover it. Your team, led by Julie, was absolutely incredible from the first moment we met down to the beautiful new plant for my mom and our goodbyes at the door.
They were so organized, thoughtful, friendly and polite. It was a sincere pleasure to work with all of them. I enjoyed the experience so much I am almost sad that the move is finished but happy that we will meet again when my parents are ready to hang their many pictures.
Again, I am in awe and am telling anyone with ears about Darling Solutions so they will hopefully in turn tell their friends and family.
Very best regards and please send our thanks once again to your team.
