Top Tips for Personal Self Storage

The New Year is one of the greatest times for a new beginning. 2017 could be the year you are ready to overhaul your home and store everything away in their correct places. Many people soon realise they have many more possessions then they originally thought they had, and thus begin to struggle to find the right places for them.
Whatever reason you have for deciding to free up some personal, home space, we can help you on your journey with these top tips.

Clean Items

Before any items are stored away, it’s vital to ensure they have been cleaned and thoroughly dried. This means that when the time comes to use your item again, it will need a mere wipe and will be ready for instant use.

Utilise Space

If you live in a house, it’s likely you have space in the loft- and a lot of it! Make sure you use your loft as storage space to avoid clogging up your home. If you have a basement, use that too! However, if you live in a flat, using the space under beds, at the bottom of wardrobes and in utility rooms are great alternatives.

Storage Containers

Plastic storage boxes of multiple sizes are a great way of ensuring you keep things together and tucked neatly away. Not only are they cheap, easy to store and tidy, but they also look great under beds or in the corner of rooms!

Keep Things Tidy

Even after you’ve organised everything and found the correct storage compartments, it’s vital you take the time to keep things tidy, especially if they are still in regular use. As things become unruly and messy, you may find it’s more difficult to find what it is you need!

Search the Internet

If you’re in need of some creative, fun and easy tips for storing everyday household items, searching online can be a great help. Many people take to the internet to share tips and tricks they have come across- for example we loved reading these 20 DIY home organisation hacks!
