Making Room for New Family Members

Maybe you’re bringing home a newborn, or perhaps you want to make space in your home for an aging parent. Though having a new family member in your home is exciting, it’s often spoiled by thoughts of cleaning out a room and getting it ready for the big day. You’ll want to make space without getting rid of your belongings, but how can you do that? By using a storage rental, you can turn your spare room into a nursery or a guest room and still have a place for your stuff.

  1. Organize all the items in the spare room.

It’s possible to turn a spare bedroom into a junk room by haphazardly placing all of your unused items in it throughout the year. Take some time to organize the items, separating them by type and placing them in storage containers.

  1. Donate what you don’t need.

Clutter builds up fast in a spare room, so get rid of anything that you don’t plan to use. You can also donate many of the items to other family members, neighbors or friends. Alternatively, box up your unused items, and donate them to charity.

  1. Turn to storage units for extra space.

You don’t have to make room in the garage for those boxes and storage containers. After all, you’d only clutter another part of your home. Renting a storage unit gives you an affordable option for creating extra space without having to build a new room or move to another house. Storage units come in many different sizes to accommodate any and all items. In addition, they have secure access and 24-hour surveillance, including temperature control to protect your belongings from heat, cold and moisture.

You should enjoy having a new family member in your home, not worry about finding a place to store all of your excess belongings. By combining household storage with a storage unit, you can convert your spare room into a useable space and keep your furniture, clothing or seasonal items safe and secure.
