The garage and the basement used to be the designated areas where all your clutter was kept in storage. Today however, as the price of real estate continues to rise, many people have chosen to remain in their homes and invest in renovation improvements that will give them more square footage. For example, many homeowners have gained extra space by turning their garage into a family room and the basement into a theater room.
Homeowners, who wish to turn their basement, attic or garage into living and entertainment areas, will have to make self-storage a permanent part of their lifestyle. Self-storage will free up extra space while also allowing the family to achieve their renovation dreams.
Here’s how to make self-storage work for you:
Store seasonal pieces you use periodically (holiday decorations, etc.).
– Organize your self-storage unit and make a full inventory of everything in it. If you don’t have a written inventory, you will end up misplacing things.
– Use covered plastic containers to avoid mold and mildew.
– Label everything, whether by color or in specific categories.
– Store smaller items in clear containers so that you can see right away what you have.
