6 Ways to Use Self Storage During a Home Renovation

Rent a Storage Unit for New Furniture and Fixtures

One of the most exciting things about a home redesign is purchasing new furniture and fixtures that align with your vision. However, you might find that you don’t have room for new furniture during your renovation. A self storage unit can hold new items until you can move them in.

A residential storage unit saves you valuable space in your home and provides a secure environment for valuable furniture. A climate-controlled storage unit is an excellent solution for storing delicate furniture and décor items.

Declutter to Visualize Your Space

When redesigning your home, it helps to have a clear space to see your vision come to life. The decluttering process allows more room for construction and gives you a clearer picture of what your space could look like.

An easy way to declutter is by sorting items into separate piles: store, donate, sell, and toss. Store sentimental items and furniture you plan on keeping in a secure self storage unit while you renovate. Donate or sell items you no longer need that are in good condition. Toss items that have damage or heavy wear.

Keep Valuables Safe and Tucked Away

Renovations often require workers to have access to areas of your home, which can occasionally pose a risk to valuable items. At Access Self Storage, you can secure your valuable items, such as artwork or heirlooms, in a safe place to avoid them getting lost, damaged, or stolen during the home redesign. A self storage unit is also a great place to keep fragile items that can break during construction.

Store Furniture For a Home Staging

Many home redesigns are part of a strategy to prepare to sell your home. When selling a home, staging is a critical step. A first impression could significantly impact a buyer’s decision, and out-of-date furniture can negatively impact potential buyers’ opinions. A self storage unit can store furniture you want to put away so your home looks more cohesive.

Store Seasonal Items Conveniently

Home redesigns often involve updating seasonal décor and furniture with the shifting holidays. Instead of crowding your home storage spaces with seasonal décor, keep it tucked away in a self storage unit. By utilizing self storage, you can ensure your seasonal decorations and other items stay in good condition until you’re ready to use them again.
