Minimalism is the hottest trend in home decor and interior design. Many of us have trouble creating a nice, clean space with the abundance of stuff we have accumulated over the years. If you want to increase the capacity of your living space without getting rid of all your things, a self-storage unit may be the solution you are looking for. Learn some of the benefits of self-storage and how you can create a clean, minimalist living room with a self-storage unit from Affordable Family Storage.
The first step in reducing clutter and opening up your living space is to decide which items you want to put into storage. The best way to start this process is to start by finding items that you do not use day-to-day. Seasonal items like winter coats in the summer or swimming trunks in the winter are a great place to start. If you only use an item a few months of the year, it makes sense to free up that space by utilizing a self-storage unit. Items like sporting goods that you only use during special occasions can take up a lot of space. Camping gear is great to own until it is taking up valuable living space in the dead of winter. Place your gear in a storage unit until it is needed. Store your golf clubs during the cold winter months. Anything that is seasonal and merely taking up space in the off months is perfectly-suited for a self-storage unit.
Not only do files and documents add to the clutter in your home, but they can also take up a surprising amount of space, depending on how much paperwork you need to keep track of. Many people store a year’s worth of documents in preparation for one event, tax season. Using a self-storage unit to store your files and documents is not only a great way to de-clutter, but it also provides safety and security for your files. Affordable Family Storage, for instance, offers excellent security for your documents as well as climate control to ensure they remain undamaged.
Items like photo albums, trophies, and family heirlooms are extremely important to all of us. At the same time, they can add serious clutter to your living space. Not only can you create a clean minimalist living space by storing these items, but they will be protected from the natural damage that occurs in a lived-in home. Protect your sentimental items at a safe, secure location where they will be preserved until you are in a living space where you can display them.
