If you are going through a renovation of your home, you already know it will be a huge change from what you have been living with. You might be wondering how exactly to go about storing your belongings and how you should pack and protect them. This is the main concern for many homeowners. Your belongings are your most valuable investment, and you want to ensure they are stored safely. Here are a few tips for deciding what to do with your belongings.
1. Use Rolling Racks For Clothing Storage
When you have to move your belongings out of their closets, removing all the clothing from their shelves is essential. You will want to remove and place them in a storage container to store your other clothes or put them in a rolling rack where you can stack them up. This will allow you to keep all your clothing in one area. You can use a rolling rack with wide open spaces to store more oversized items while using one with small compartments will keep your belongings in place.
2. Use Stackable Bins
You can place your belongings in stackable storage boxes to keep them organized and contained. You can use these boxes to store anything from clothing, accessories, linens, toys, and more. They come in different sizes, and many have lids you can use to cover them up. These bins are made with top-quality metal that keeps them sturdier than other containers.
3. Use Cardboard Boxes to Store Items
If you have more oversized items, such as a refrigerator, washing machine, or other furniture, you can use cardboard boxes to store them. You can dismantle the furniture to fit it into the boxes and protect it from damage. Cardboard storage boxes also come with covers you can use to cover your belongings. You must consider how much space your belongings need and choose appropriately sized bins and containers to ensure everything fits.
Your belongings are important and should be stored with the utmost care. You want to be sure that your things are always safe and protected. You need to pay attention to how you will keep them, so they do not get damaged during the renovation.
4. Donate Your Belongings
You will make room for new furniture and decor through your renovation. If you have some items that are no longer needed or are worn out, you can always donate them. You can donate them to a shelter or organization that can provide the items to people who need them. You can offer your clothes to friends or family members. You can even sell some of the things and use the money to purchase new ones.
Hire a Moving Company
If you need more storage space to accommodate everything, it might be best to hire a moving company. They can pack everything and move it all in one trip. You also can use a moving company if your home is more than one story high or if you are planning on redecorating the entire house. The company will also be able to take care of everything and protect your belongings from damage during the move.
Hire a Professional Packing Service
If you are unsure how much furniture and other belongings you have, or if you are worried about the quality of protection, you can hire professionals to pack you. Some companies specialize in packing items for home renovations and will ensure that everything is secured and out of the way during construction. They can package almost anything to be ready to move when it comes time.
