It’s no secret that space comes at premium prices in New York City. And the longer you stay in one place, the more stuff you tend to accumulate. So, what to do when you’re just out of space but you don’t want to get rid of anything that you have.
Temporary storage can help. Here are four reasons why you might consider renting some extra space for a short period of time:
Swapping Seasonal Items
If your closets are getting too stuffed to hold both your winter coats and summer shorts, you can use temporary storage to keep your seasonal items. Rotating your clothes gives you more space and makes it easier to see what you have.
You can also store seasonal décor so that your home has a fresh look as the weather changes. Switch out your cozy, warm décor for lighter, brighter touches in summer and vice versa when the seasons shift.
Clearing for Renovations
If your space is already packed tightly with your belongings, it can be difficult to keep everything in place while you’re planning a renovation. You can make it easier for contractors to finish the work faster when you temporarily store your furnishings. You’ll also be able to protect them from getting dusty, scratched or damaged accidently during construction.
If you want a truly seamless experience, ask us for a recommended decorator or contractor. We work frequently with some amazing renovation professionals, and can help you find the right resource for your needs.
Inheriting and Transferring Furniture
Sometimes an unexpected piece of furniture comes into your life. Maybe you inherit a piece that you want to keep but don’t yet have room for it yet. Perhaps it is something you’re giving away to your relative, but they can’t pick it up right away.
If you have no more room in your home, keep it safe and sound in a temporary storage space. You can keep the piece can stay undisturbed until its new owner comes to retrieve it or until you create space for it.
Staying Clutter Free When School’s Out
If you have a college-aged child coming back from school for the summer, you may not have the space to keep everything they are hauling back from the dorms. Store their excess furnishings and items just for the summer to keep your home clutter free.
