As the days get shorter and the nights longer, Christmas gets ever closer as we come to the end of the year. The holiday season can be a stressful time for most people, but if you’ve got your whole family visiting then the preparations needed to get everything ready can be quite a handful.
Preparing early can make the job of getting your house ready for Christmas much easier, especially if you’re having lots of people to stay. If the whole family is coming to stay over Christmas, space is going to be at a premium. Maximising the space in your home will make life a lot more comfortable for you and your guests. One of the easiest ways to free up space in your home is to put items you don’t need into storage. At Harrison and Rowley we have a range of storage solutions that are perfect if you need extra space over the holidays.
With this in mind we’ve put together a list of some of the most popular items you can put into storage to free up space in your home over Christmas.
- Old bikes can take up a lot useful space in spare bedrooms and corridors. Space that could be easily used for festive decorations or places for people to sleep in. Storing your old bikes in one of our self storage facilities over the Christmas holidays can help free up more space than might expect. As well as storing old bikes that you don’t use anymore, why not store your current bikes away over the holidays? If you don’t think you’ll be doing any cycling over Christmas, putting them in storage can help free up extra space until you need them back again in January.
- Typically Christmas isn’t a common time for DIY so storing your DIY equipment like tool boxes, ladders and tins of paint can free up more space in your home without causing any disruptions.
- It’s really common to use a spare room as a dumping ground for old clothes and shoes that you’d don’t wear very often. It makes sense to store items like this in a spare room, as it’s probably not used very often. However, if you’ve got family staying, an extra room that’s not full of old clothes, can be really useful.
- Things you only use in the summer – although this point is fairly general, have a think about all the things you only ever use during the warmer months. Sports equipment, picnic gear and BBQs for instance. These kinds of items aren’t going to be used at Christmas so why not store them away in our self storage facilities to save space?
- Christmas decorations – obviously you won’t be storing your Christmas decorations over the holidays but in January why not keep them in one of our self storage facilities? They will be safely looked after until you need them again next year.
