Your apartment may have been spacious and ideal in your eyes when you were living alone, but now that your partner has moved in, the apartment is starting to get crowded and less comfortable. Overnight, your beautiful haven is overrun with office supplies and a collection of male paraphernalia that officially puts you in panic mode.
How will you cope with the mountain bikes, stack of weights and his collection of 300 DVDs? What about the frightening addition of the complicated stereo system or the different gaming gadgets and consoles he brought along with him?
In order to make the most of this new living arrangement, we recommend that you consider a self-storage option. Here are a number of clever tricks to help you utilize a storage space and return your apartment to its prior comfortable and spacious state.
- Start by getting rid of clutter. A small room filled with many tiny items inevitably looks crowded. Do a ruthless clean out. Put trinkets into storage or keep them neatly in a display cabinet instead of strewn over every surface.
- While you’re at it, tackle the clothes closet. If you have not worn an item in a year, you probably never will. Donate to your favourite charity and give yourself more space.
- Get rid of large bulky furniture. A small space works better and appears more spacious if the furniture is kept to a minimum and several walls are devoted instead to built-in storage units. Remove larger furniture pieces and place them in storage. Should you need them again in the future, they will be safely tucked away and ready for you to pick them up.
