Self-Storage Benefits

July 17th, 2021

Whether you are moving or have been in your home for longer than you can remember, self-storage can help you organize, declutter, and refresh your living space, making it feel brand new. 
Here are examples of ways self-storage can give you the freedom you need to revamp your living space:
Stop Organizing What You Can Declutter
Spring is in the air, and with it, a lot of us partake in annual spring cleaning, a time to roll up our sleeves and get to work organizing our living spaces. It’s about more than just vacuuming sweeping out the garage, and cleaning out a refrigerator with expired food. Spring cleaning is all about making those hidden areas feel organized and clean again – the space under your bed, the closet in the hallway, the bedroom you use to keep everything you don’t currently need. Have you ever stopped to ask yourself why you keep organizing these spaces over and over again when you barely touch them throughout the year? Is there a better solution?  We are all hoarders at heart. We attach memories or value to the things we purchase or acquire, making it hard to just let go. That’s what those secret storage areas in our homes are for, but shoving boxes under the bed or in that closet in the hallway can become a pain, and eventually, you run out of room. So, why not store the things you use occasionally, seasonally, or are just holding onto, and use the spaces in your home for things you use everyday or can’t live without?
Make Room for Guests
Living spaces are expensive, so if you have an extra bedroom, it makes sense that you would use it to store your things when it is being unused, but don’t you get tired of having to quickly clean and declutter that space when guests come? Are you ready to decorate that space but just can’t justify it because you have too many things in there? By self-storing your items, you can clear out your extra bedroom and make it feel like a cozy part of your home again. No need to rush home to declutter the space when someone is coming to stay with you. Our use it as a getaway room for a change of scenery on those nights when you just can’t sleep. Your house is more than just a building; it’s your home, and every room should feel as such. Self-storage can give you the space you need to make your house a home for you and your guests. 
Give Your Car It’s Garage Back
The garage can be a great place to store a range of things, from old furniture or appliances to seasonal decorations. Out of sight, out of mind, right? Although this phrase is catchy, it’s not actually true. Just because you can’t see something doesn’t mean it’s not still there. Although it may be a convenient storage space, your garage was meant to be a safe place for you to keep your car, your bicycle, or maybe even an extra refrigerator. The garage was made for things like this. When it comes to those clothes you don’t wear anymore or the old dresser you are waiting to use, choose to store them in a place where they will be safe, accessible, and out of your way. 
Create New Spaces
Are you using your basement or attic for storage? What if you made the most use of your space for both yourself and your family? By moving your things into storage, you can free up a room in your house and create a new community space for your family. Finally use that old couch you have or splurge on that TV you’ve been saving for and create the family room of your dreams. Fill the space with bean bags or a ping pong table and give your children their own space to recharge. Use that old table you don’t know what to do with and turn it into a game table, and bring your family together to pass the time playing your favorite board games. Do your kids love art? It could even be a space just for them to express their creativity. None of this is your style? What is? Whatever you want, whatever you feel like your home needs, it could be yours – you just have to free up space. Think of all your things you have taking up space, write them down and decided what needs to stay and what can be stored away.
Save Money
Imagine if you could clear out all the things you don’t use or need in your home.. Would you create an extra bedroom? Would your car be better protected and cleaner stored in the garage? Would your kids play and recharge more often if they had their own space? Could you use one of the rooms in your home as an office space? If you are thinking of buying a new home to increase space, would storing some of your things make your current home big and spacious enough?  Self-storage is simple. Find a location close to home and tour the facility. If it meets your standards and gives you feel peace of mind, then it’s the right place for you. Get ready to move in. With the new space, you can have the freedom to reshape and liven your home.
