Spring - the best season to move into a new apartment

If you are planning to buy a new apartment in Ljubljana, spring is the best season to do so. As days get warmer and longer, you will have more time and energy to pack your boxes and schedule the move. Spring is a natural time of change when we feel a great urge for starting fresh. Once you find an ideal apartment, it’s time to organize your big move and start a new chapter in your new home.

The ideal temperature for moving

Spring is the perfect season for physically demanding jobs. It's not too hot nor too cold, so you'll have an optimal temperature for carrying a heavy load. You won't need to worry about moving delicate items on slippery icy roads or get cold while you carry boxes. In the apartment, you can complete small renovation hassle-free, as you can open the windows to let the cleaning fumes out and let the paint dry. The last weather-related effect is psychological, but it doesn't hurt to remind you, that sunny days always brighten up the mood.

Better time for a change

Most apartments are sold in the spring and summer. During the gloomy winter days rarely anyone finds the motivation to move. In the real estate world, winter is considered to be the offseason for buying and selling apartments. But in spring, everything comes back to life, even the desire to start fresh.

Longer days

Time is of the essence when it comes to moving apartments. That's why it's a good idea to do the most on the weekends, but also to do a little bit on workdays too. Considering the daylight savings and longer days, you will have more time to do things during workdays. So, you can ask your friends to come over and help you with the move each day after work. Nothing says friendship like carrying a heavy couch on the third floor on a Monday after work.


If you bought an unfurnished apartment, you probably want to get some basic furniture first. Even if you decide to lead a minimalist lifestyle and get only a couch, a desk, and a bed, you still have to deal with all the stuff you carry from your old place.

Before you start unpacking, it would be better to first thoroughly clean the entire apartment. If you need to paint the walls, wash windows and scrub the bathroom, the best time to do it is before settling in. Then it’s time to unpack and decorate your apartment.

To make sure that you are starting fresh, be careful not to hoard on old thinks. Spring- cleaning also means decluttering, so make sure to toss away old magazines, robust souvenirs, and everything else that is broken, forgotten or useless. Go through your wardrobe and get rid of everything that doesn't fit anymore, or that you haven't worn in over a year. Just remember not to throw away your clothes, as you can donate them.

Make your own green oasis

Having a balcony is undeniably a significant advantage of every apartment, especially if you want to make your green oasis. If you are lucky to buy an apartment with a balcony in Ljubljana, you can have your little private garden. Spring is an ideal time to tidy up the balcony and to buy beautiful flowers and plants. Along with decorative plants, you can also plant herbs and spices and grow your own basil or oregano, and have the freshest ingredients handy.
