Accumulating more holiday decorations each year is common. Some decorations may replace older decorations that have broken or are completely worn out, but you also may have a few new items that add even more merriment to your home all season long. After the holidays, however, you may be faced with the difficult task of finding a place to store those new items in your already-crammed house. These are a few excellent storage ideas to consider.
Your home may have limited storage areas and may legitimately be jammed with quality items that you use regularly. However, in many homes, there are dozens of boxes and bins that have not been touched in years. If you do not know what is in a box, there is a good chance that you no longer need the box. Now is a great time to do some spring cleaning and to remove any unwanted clutter that serves no purpose in your home or life. By doing so, you can create more space to store your new décor.
Build a Storage Shed
Another idea is to build a new storage shed on your property. Storage sheds are available in a wide range of sizes and with various special features. You will need enough space on your property to accommodate the shed, and you will need to periodically maintain this structure just as you maintain your home’s exterior. The shed may be used to store your holiday décor, or you can move some of your lawn and garden items into the shed so that the garage may be used to store your décor.
Rent a Self-Storage Unit
You may also need to rent a nearby self-storage unit. These units may be available in small sizes that may be no larger than a standard hall closet, or they may be as large as a one or two-car garage. Some of these units are climate-controlled, and many are now secured by gates, surveillance cameras and more. Before you build a shed on your property, consider getting a quote for a self-storage unit rental. This option may be more affordable than you might think.
Most people tend to accumulate more stuff over the years. This may include holiday décor during the winter, but it also may include extra furniture, heirlooms, sporting goods and other items throughout the year. When your home is running low on storage space, each of these ideas may be used strategically to help you get the space that you need.
