Summer can be a great time to catch up with family, and it’s often the season when you have house guests. Those who live in the Warrington area will often have family come to visit, perhaps to enjoy local attractions like Gulliver’s World, or make some day trips to Manchester during their stay. While it’s great to spend time with friends and family, your house can soon seem a little cramped, which is where booking storage can help.
Whether it’s just for a few weeks, or as a long-term trick to de-clutter, here are some ways you can use a storage unit when people come to visit.
Clearing a spare room
When you stay at someone’s house, it’s nice to have your own space, so it’s worth clearing out a room and putting things in self-storage when you have people to visit. Some spaces you can use for guests include:
- Home offices
- Dining rooms
- Spare rooms
These sorts of spaces are fine for a few night’s stay, and by adding a comfortable fold-out bed, people can make themselves at home in their own room.
One reason why homes can often feel cramped when people stay is because there is too much clutter in the home. Using storage facilities means that you can get rid of the things you don’t need very often, and make your home instantly feel bigger. Many homeowners wish they had a bigger property, so removing some of the things you don’t need will help you feel like your wish has come true. From books and DVDs to Christmas decorations, there’s loads of stuff round the average house that can be stored away before your guests arrive, giving you more space to socialise.
Easier to find things
An advantage of putting the things you don’t need in storage is that people can easily find the things they do need. When family stay, you can find that BBQ, kids toy, or paddling pool, without having to wade through boxes. Your out of season items are neatly tucked away in a storage container, so everything just feels so much neater and easier, especially when you have a house full of people.
Space to socialise
One big advantage of de-cluttering before people come round is that it gives you space to socialise. Warrington has some beautiful homes, but some of the new builds and older terraces can have small living spaces or lack dining rooms. It’s worth looking for local self-storage so that you can get rid of any unnecessary furniture, giving you more floor space to work with. Once your guests have left, you can simply pick up your furniture again, putting things back to normal, if you decide you prefer the old style.
