“We need more space!”
This is the number one thing people say to us when they put their possessions into storage with us as they’re preparing to move house. They often tell us that they love their current home, it’s where they’ve made their memories, but they’ve just outgrown it.
If you truly love your home though, moving for more space isn’t always necessary.
If there are new family members to be accommodated it’s worth considering an extension or loft conversion. It’s a big undertaking, but when it’s all finished you get to keep your home and you get that much-needed extra space – everybody wins! It’s also likely to be a sound investment as it will add value to your home too.
Alternatively, if it’s storage space that you’re short on, you can look to declutter and live a life of minimalist chic style – pick up a copy of queen of tidying, Marie Kondo’s ‘Sparks Joy’ and get rid of anything that doesn’t bring you immense happiness or have a practical use.
It’s also a great opportunity to get more organised. Can you honestly say that the space you currently have is used in the most effective way? Take the time to go through your possessions, room-by-room and decide whether you really need it. Is it in the right place? Is it stored in the best way? For example, many of us hang t-shirts up in a wardrobe, but that takes up so much more space than neatly folded ones kept in drawers.
Think about how you use your existing space too. There might be a space that was labelled ‘Dining Room’ on a floor plan when you bought your house that you only use at Christmas or a garage that you never put your car in. Could you turn one of them into a playroom or a utility room?
Finally, you’ve identified the problem – you need more storage. Does that need to be in the building where you live? We all have possessions that we don’t use from one month to the next, but for reasons of practicality or sentimentality, we need to keep them either because they were expensive, have memories attached to them, or because we only use them at certain times of the year. Our adaptable storage options could be the perfect solution.
