What To Do With Your Stuff When Remodeling

While many people do not enjoy change, sometimes we all need a little bit of it. Perhaps that is why we cannot stand sitting in the same place for an extended period of time. And what more signifies this than our desire to remodel our homes every so often?

Honestly, remodeling is great. It allows us to thrive in creativity, while also being productive with it. It brings new life into our place, and it excites us at the same time. The only problem? It can be costly. And it does bring a few space issues with itself – namely, where would we put our furniture?

Depending on your situation you may be remodeling a single room or your entire home. Obviously, it is much easier to take care of a room, including the furniture there, but most of the time you will still be pressed for space. That is why today we have a few solution for you, to relieve you of the feeling that you have nowhere to put your furniture. Let’s go!

Tip #1: The Fewer The Better

We Americans have somewhat of a problem with hoarding. Sure, it does not reach clinical proportions, but all of us are way too drawn to our stuff. Perhaps this is why there is a minimalism wave that is going around the country. And you know what? You can ride it, too!

If you are to be honest with yourself, you will admit that you have pieces of furniture, which need to go. Bookshelves with no books on them, or even entire bookcases. Stools nobody ever uses, empty (or filled with junk) cabinets… All these things can be donated or sold online. That way you will not have to worry about space all that much!

Tip #2: Embrace The New

Remodeling is all about the new – new paint, new feel… why not new furniture all together? Sure, it can be a bit too much to factor in your expenses, but give it some thought. If you want to feel like you are living in a fresh space, your old furniture will definitely feel out of place.

Not to mention that you can offset the cost of buying new furniture by selling your old. Sure, it won’t be for an extreme amount, but you can still cut the expenses by a third or half, if you are lucky enough.

Tip #3: Temporary Storage Facilities Are A Thing

Did you know that you can pack all your stuff in plastic moving boxes, and call your favorite movers to get it (along with your furniture) to a temporary storage unit? A lot of moving companies are offering these nowadays, so it is definitely not that hard to find one. Just make sure that you know how long you want to use it for, because the costs can pile up, especially if you get off-track with your remodeling project.
