What to do with your furniture when renovating your home

Whether you’re making your property bigger or sprucing the place up a bit, renovating your home is an exciting time.


A common dilemma many people face at this time however is what to do with their belongings while the work is taking place. After all, chances are that furniture will get in the way and you don’t want to risk it getting damaged either.


If you’re lucky enough to have a large garage, then this is the most obvious and simple solution. Furniture can safely be stored away until you need it again and the best part is that you don't have to take it very far.


Although this is a great option for many of your belongings, there are no doubt some items you would rather keep somewhere a bit safer. If this is the case, more precious items can be kept in self-storage facilities which offer maximum security for your personal belongings.


If you are limited for space and need full access to all the rooms in your home, then again, self-storage is an ideal solution when renovations are underway. As well as giving you the space you need to complete the job properly, you can be rest assured that all your possessions are well protected and accessible at any time you need them.


If your renovation includes more than just a lick of paint and you’re planning to buy brand new furniture too, storage can become an issue if decorating takes longer than anticipated. If delaying delivery for your new items isn't an option and you are short on space, putting things straight into a self-storage facility is a great resolution.


What’s more, you can even ask the company you’re buying your new furniture from to deliver it straight to your storage location. Not only does this save you a lot of hassle, it also minimizes the risk of damage as everything will still be packaged. You also get the added bonus of receiving help from delivery professionals who can store everything away neatly so that you can make the most of the space you have available.


Protecting furniture is a primary concern for many people when they are doing up their home. It’s well worth taking the time to ensure that everything is securely covered because unfortunately, accidents can and will happen.


If you don't want to take the risk of items becoming damaged, a self-storage unit is without a doubt the safest place for your prized possessions. This way you can guarantee that your furniture will be safe, you or your builders will have plenty of space to move around and when your house is in good shape once again, everything can return as pristine as it was the day it left.
