5 Reasons to Use a Self Storage Unit While Renovating

by Sally Smith on Mar 29, 2021

Home renovations are a great way to update your space. There are all types of renovations, both large and small, that homeowners do in attempts to update their surroundings. One useful tip for people who are renovating their homes is to rent a self-storage unit.

Here are a few reasons why to get self-storage when you remodel

1. Safety

Using a self-storage unit will help you to keep all of your most valuable items safe while renovating your home. Different renovation projects can each pose different risks to your valuables. To avoid causing damage to valuables, it is a good idea to keep them in a storage unit. This will also make it so any workers you have in your home do not see valuable items around that they may be tempted to steal.

2. Maximize your available space

Using a storage unit while renovating will also help you to maximize your available space. This will make things less chaotic and easier for you to navigate. Bumping into items when attempting to renovate is dangerous, annoying, and can damage your items. It also can make the renovation project take longer. By keeping large items like furniture in a storage unit, you will not have to relocate them within your home. During longer renovation projects, this will help keep your other rooms looking peaceful and beautiful even while one room is torn up or chaotic due to ongoing projects.

3. Give you a big picture of your house

Once you are already renovating, it can be a valuable time to redecorate as well. Renovations are a big investment to change your aesthetic. Redecorating serves as a slightly smaller scale version of this. By putting away older items you can see your home in a more minimalist light. From there, you can decide if you would like to put the items back, replace them with new items, or keep the minimalist look (which has been popular for nearly a decade).

4. To store renovation tools and materials

You can keep renovation tools and materials in your storage unit during your renovation project as well. Tools and materials that are no longer needed for the project can be kept put away in a self-storage unit so that they are out of the way. This can also be done for tools and materials that will not be needed until later in the project. Having a less cluttered workspace while renovating will help the project to go as quickly as possible and as smoothly as possible.

5. To store your new furniture

Use your storage unit to store new purchases while renovating. Renovation time is often a great time to buy new furniture, art, decor items, or electronics. Instead of subjecting your new items to potential risks by bringing them into the home immediately, you can keep them safely stored until the project is over. In the end, these new items can finally be brought out to tie the room completely together
