Why You Should Store Items During a Home Renovation | Countryside Self Storage


One of the joys (and burdens) of home ownership is renovating—updating or replacing parts of your home to keep it in good shape or keep up with the latest trends. Your project may be as simple as repainting or recarpeting a spare room or as complex as a whole kitchen or bath remodel. In any event, spring and summer are the best times of year to complete that long-awaited home renovation project! The weather is nice, the light is good, and self storage in Missouri can help keep your stuff out of the way while you're working on the house.

Hadn't thought of searching for "storage units near me" to complete that home renovation project? Here are just a few ways self storage can help:

Storage keeps your stuff out of the way of renovations. Even something as simple as repainting or recarpeting a single room can take weeks of planning and prep work before you begin the actual job itself. Of course, you can't have things sitting on the floor when you take the carpet out (or put it in). Whatever job you're doing, get stuff out of the way so you can work with a little help from self storage in Missouri.

It helps minimize damage to your belongings. No matter how careful you are, things that are in the middle of a work zone are going to get bumped into, knocked over, dropped, hit with ladders, splattered with paint, or used as makeshift saw horses. Why not get them out of the way and out of harm's way?

It helps minimize damage to you or your family! Even if you're not worried about damaging your stuff, having things in the way while you're trying to work is a tripping hazard, at best. Better to be safe than sorry, after all!

It keeps your stuff out of the basement and garage. Not everything should be stored in the basement or garage. It may be humid down there, and it can be hot in the garage. There may be bugs or other pests. Besides, you might have better uses for that space than keeping all the extra furniture from your spare room while you recarpet.

It helps manage the mess. Let's face it, construction projects are messy. There's going to be extra stuff everywhere, whether that means tarps and plastic sheets for catching paint splatter or sawdust from cutting wood. The last thing you need is more stuff cluttering up the house in the midst of all that!

It's easy to access. Whether you're storing some of the tools you'll need on a later step of your renovation project or the stuff that's going to go back into the room when you're done, it'll probably be easier to retrieve from a well-staged self storage unit near you than it will be if it's stuffed in the garage, closet, or attic. Hey, if you decide that you want all-new furniture and décor when you're done, you can always keep the leftovers in self storage until you decide what to do with them.
