Creating your dream home can be an uphill struggle, especially when you have a very limited amount of space. Finding a way to organise your possessions that creates a stylish and spacious appearance isn’t easy for those with smaller properties. However, you shouldn’t give up on creating your ideal home. There is a way to make that home a reality: self storage.
Let’s face it: most of us suffer from a certain amount of clutter. One of the inevitable consequences of living a rich and interesting life is the acquisition of fascinating (but not very useful) objet d’art. The renowned New York Times even has an article discussing the spiritual importance of these objects. Obviously, you don’t want to get rid of any of these emotionally valuable artefacts, but you can’t just leave them lying around if you want to create a spacious household environment. Luckily, you don’t have to throw the souvenirs of your life away: you just have to store them! Packaging them and placing them in self storage lets you to remove these items from your home while allowing you to retain ownership of it.
As a matter of fact, self storage is the ideal place to preserve the memorabilia of an interesting life. If we’re honest, we all have a tendency to temporarily misplace things, accidentally damage them or lose them altogether (this writer certainly does). Objects in self storage aren’t subjected to the stresses of daily life and are likely to last far longer than they would if they were left lying around the house. Not only does placing your life’s souvenirs in self storage help de-clutter your home, it also helps keep the objects themselves intact!
However, if you really want to create a pristine, spacious home, it may not be enough to clear away your less useful items. Luckily, self storage is also a great place to put more practical apparatus when you’re not using it. For example, some of your furniture may only be used when you have guests over: when it isn’t in use, why not get it out of the way? It won’t come to any harm in a self storage container and you’ll free up a huge amount of floor space! There’s no reason to keep every useful item on hand at all times. Sometimes, it makes sense to get even the most practical items out of the way.
By storing both objet d’art and practical items that you don’t plan on using for a while, you can create a surprising amount of space in your home. This is the first step towards creating your ideal household environment. If you need inspiration for what to do next, we recommend this article from Apartment Therapy.
