Did you know that self-storage facilities can come in handy during the holidays? Here are some of the ways in which you can benefit from these facilities:
Summer Toys and Extracurricular Gear
There are some toys, especially outdoor ones, which are more useful during the summer than the cold temperatures normally witnessed during the holiday season. Examples of such things include surfboards and off-road bikes. If you have such toys, then they can easily crowd your rooms (especially if you have limited space, to begin with) for nothing. Use a self-storage unit to keep the toys until the holiday or cold season is over and your children can use them again.
If you have invested in some nice pieces of outside furniture, then you shouldn't let them suffer outside when you won't be using them during the Christmas season. Depending on the material of the furniture, the freezing temperatures and moisture issues may damage them. Unfortunately, furniture tends to occupy considerable space so they may crowd you out of your room; or you can store them in a self-storage facility.
Getting Extra Space When You Have Guests
Many people love to spend the holiday season with their families. This is also the time of the year when most workers take their vacation days so that they can spend time with their loved ones. This is all good, but it can be difficult to pull off if you have limited space and you want to spend the whole holiday season with several loved ones. Don't let the issue of space prevent you from enjoying the warmth of your loved ones during the holiday season; take some of your stuff to a self-storage facility and get space for your guests.
Storing Holiday Gifts
Many people love gifts, both giving and receiving them, and there is no bigger gift-giving season than the holiday season at the end of the year. Unfortunately, retailers also know this, and they tend to inflate the prices of many gift-worthy items during the holidays. A good way of dealing with the problem is to buy the items offseason, but this is only practical if you have ample storage. At the same time, the joy of giving a gift is seeing the pleasant surprise on the face of the recipient. You can solve both problems by buying the gifts early enough and keeping them, especially if they are large items, in self-storage until you are ready to present them.
Are you planning to build a new house in the near future? If you desperately desire for your home to function for you and your family, incorporate plenty of storage solutions in it. For instance, you might wish to install a large, walk-in closet in your master bedroom. You may also want to build a linen closet in your master bathroom. Installing a bay window with a built-in, storage box is also an ingenious idea. To keep your new place free of clutter, you might even wish to rent a storage unit at a facility near you. You can store seasonal items such as Christmas decorations, snow skis, or beach balls in your rented, storage compartment. On this blog, I hope you will discover clever, storage ideas for your new abode. Enjoy!
