Planning to take your TV to your new home? For those who recently bought or sold a residence, you may have only a short period of time to pack your TV and other belongings and bring them to your new address. Fortunately, we're here to help you simplify the process of packing your TV for moving day.
Now, let's take a look at three tips to properly pack your TV.
1. Use the Right-Sized Box
If you saved the original box for your TV, you should use the box for moving day. That way, you can store your TV in a strong, durable box that offers maximum protection.
On the other hand, if you threw away the box for your TV, there's no need to worry. You should have no trouble finding a heavy-duty box that is big enough to hold your TV and will ensure your TV will be protected throughout your move.
In most instances, a double-wall corrugated box is ideal for a TV. Double-wall corrugated boxes are available in multiple sizes and are unlikely to get damaged or punctured while in transit.
2. Cover Your TV
Wrapping your TV in a soft blanket usually is a good idea. With this blanket in place, you can protect your TV's screen against scratches.
Also, don't forget to secure the blanket to your TV with rope or moving-grade shrink wrap. This will ensure the blanket will stay in place for the duration of your move.
If you can't find a suitable blanket to cover your TV, you can always substitute a blanket with bubble wrap. Cover your TV in bubble wrap and seal the ends with tape, and you're good to go.
3. Label and Secure the TV Box
Slide your TV into your moving box and keep it in an upright position. By doing so, you can avoid putting pressure on the TV screen – something that otherwise may cause permanent damage to your TV.
Before you seal the box that contains your TV, you'll want to add plenty of packing material. This will ensure your TV is firmly padded and won't tip or shift while you're on the go.
Finally, seal the box with packing tape and label it accordingly. Since your TV is sensitive, you'll want to label the box as "Fragile" as well.
If you need help packing your TV or other belongings, it often pays to hire a moving company. With a team of professional movers at your side, you can quickly and safely get all of your belongings from Point A to Point B.
Lastly, if you require extra assistance getting ready for moving day, don't hesitate to contact a real estate agent. In addition to helping you buy or sell a house, a real estate agent can put you in touch with the best moving companies in your area and guarantee that you can enjoy a fast, seamless transition to a new home.

There's no getting around it — and no getting around in it! A small bathroom is just, well, small! If you've got a tiny bath and no way to enlarge it, do the next best thing, give it some of the Alice in Wonderland magic with mirrors and glass.
A standard, builder’s grade bath typically has one large mirror above the vanity (or stand-alone sink if your bathroom is super small). Create some reflective light by attaching a glass shelf in front of the mirror and populating it with colored or clear glass bottles of varying heights. Light reflecting off the various surfaces bounces around the room and off the ceiling to give your space a sparkling, sunlight on water feeling.
Add more mirrors of various sizes, shapes, and frames to the room to allow the light to cast a glow into dark corners while dressing up plain walls. Mirrors of differing depths (think shadow box versus floating frames versus one matted light a picture) add dimension to your room.
Or choose a mirror-backed frame around a metallic sculpture to double down on reflection back into the room. Perhaps add reflective metallic frames in various metals around your mirrors to complete the look. Or, try a mirrored frame around a reflective object.
To increase how light moves in the room, instead of a patterned or colored shower curtain, choose a heavy clear hotel-weight curtain with decorative mirrored, metallic, or reflective rings. Seeing through the curtain into the bath area increases the room’s visual size by extending the view.
Change out your light fixture for a mirrored one that reflects both the light and the room and choose LED bulbs in warm white for the most natural light for makeup application and cooler bulbs over the shower and bath for a more relaxing experience.
Finally, if windows are high enough, leave them uncovered to allow as much light in as possible. If they are too low and risk exposure, consider covering them with a thin frosted film rather than a curtain or blind so that light still passes into the room while preserving your privacy. Mirror the back of the door as well, so that when it's closed, it casts backlight into the room. Give the space that much more reflection by choosing shiny chrome fixtures too.
And if you’re in the market for a larger bath, talk to your real estate professional about what’s available in your community.
