Make More Space at Home with Storage in Bath

There are times where we look at our home and realise that we need more space. The living room and dining room are cramped, the kitchen cupboards are full, and there’s no space left in the garage. The spare room is a glorified storage unit, and each bedroom is full to bursting point with items.

Cramped living spaces aren’t good for our health. If we don’t feel comfortable, it’s difficult to feel at home. This may lead to you considering upsizing to a larger property in Bath, but there are ways of revamping your house or apartment to make it feel like new again.

Make More Space at Home with Self Storage – 

One of the best ways of creating more space at home is to use self storage. A 50-square-foot storage unit can hold the equivalent of an entire apartment’s worth items. That’s more than enough to reclaim the spare room and garage. Just think of what you could do with that extra space?

It’s not just about freeing up space – the reclaimed rooms can now be used properly. You can now have guests stay over, or you can rent out the spare room for additional income. You can park the car in the garage or convert it into a utility room. If you have a hobby or you’d like to work from home, you now have enough space to do that.

Then there’s the security that a self storage unit provides. Most houses and apartments are built to store things that prevent damage and theft. The advantage of storage units is that they’re made to withstand extreme weather conditions and fire damage. If you have expensive or irreplaceable items, then you can have the peace of mind that they’ll be safe and secure in your self storage unit.

Inventory as you Go – 

If you don’t already have a list of your possessions, it’s time to log everything in your home. You can do this the old-fashioned way with a pen and paper or on a Word or Excel document. There are also many home inventory apps available for free for Android and IOS devices. You can document everything with images, which you can save in files for each room. This makes it easier when you need to check where something is quick. Insurance companies also accept inventory lists for things like contents insurance applications and claims.

If you’re moving your things into a self storage unit, this is the perfect opportunity to begin your inventory. List each item you remove and save as a separate file. That way, you’ll not only know what items are in each room at home, you can also check what’s in your storage unit. All at the click of a button.
