Are you running out of space as your family grows? Self storage can help

Watching your children grow up is an exciting and rewarding journey, but it also means having space for their toys and sporting equipment as they move through the years. As every new family member arrives, the amount of belongings in your home increases, which can create unwanted clutter.

Finding more space within the home for your expanding family can be a challenging task, but by following these four storage tips you’ll find it surprisingly simple.

  1. Declutter

Firstly, you should declutter regularly. This will open up space in the home and also make way for additional storage space. It can be overwhelming knowing where to start, but pick a room and be ruthless when deciding what is staying and what is going. You’ll be surprised how much extra space has been created after you’ve completed a proper clean out.

  1. Organise your space

It’s now time to organise your home space. It’s important to keep the layout simple and make sure your furniture is best positioned to create freedom of space. Don’t overload any area with clutter like toys, clothes or books. If there isn’t a place in the home for an item, consider donating these items or putting them into self storage for your children or grandchildren to use later in life.

Purchasing space saving furniture is another way to organise and optimise your space. For example, nesting tables which can be stacked together when not in use to keep them compact or ottomans which can be used as seats and storage containers.

  1. Use the space above you

Is your floor space limited? Think vertically. Transform unused head and wall space into suitable in-house storage areas. Shelves are a great way to hold household contents and can also be used to showcase sentimental items. This creates additional space, giving your family a more spacious environment to live in.
