When remodeling your home, it is easier when your belongings are protected, out of the way and in storage.
When your belongings are in storage, you need not worry about your possessions getting harmed. They won’t be broken, or covered in dust or have paint dripped on them. When you remodel, nothing is where it should be and accidents will happen if your belongings are clogging up areas around the renovation activity.
How you store your items will likely depend upon the scope of the remodel you are planning. This article will provide some storage ideas for you to consider during a home remodeling project.
Storage For Small Remodeling Projects
Small remodeling projects allow you to choose from a wide array of options. If your remodeling project is truly small, you can just move your belongings to another room or even the other side of the room in which you are working.
For larger projects, you will probably want to look for other options to store your belongings. One solution is using portable containers. Portable containers are delivered to your home and set on your driveway or yard. They are loaded by you on your own schedule. If your project is scheduled for a few days, a large container in your driveway or front yard might be a great solution.
Storage Options For Multiple Room or Whole Home Projects
However, if your project is going to take multiple weeks (or even months) you may want to consider using a remote location in a self storage facility or a climate controlled option. A multiple room remodel project will require more room. What is the scope of your upcoming project?
- Are you knocking out a wall or walls?
- Are you combining rooms?
- Are you adding an addition?
- Are you rearranging electrical, HVAC or plumbing systems in such a way where walls, floors and ceilings will be affected?
All of these options could require a lot of room to store items. Consider, if you have fine furniture, artwork, window treatments and other belongings you want to protect and secure, traditional facilities may be the best option for you. Most facilities in Madison WI offer a variety of bay sizes. The sizes can range from a 5’x10’ unit to a 10’x50’ unit. They can be climate controlled or traditional units.
If you are doing a whole home project, it can be very difficult to live in a home being completely remodeled. Depending upon the extent of the remodel project, you might consider storing most of your belongings and living in another location temporarily. Keep in mind, the items you store should be items you will not need on a daily basis.
