Is your family growing? Congratulations! Bringing new family members into the home is always an exciting time of life. It can also bring new challenges when it comes to having enough space around the house. Unless you are moving into a bigger home, adding to your family often includes getting creative with storage space. Here are a few ideas on how you can make room in your home so everyone fits:
A new baby in the home could mean it’s time for other kids to start sharing a bedroom. This could potentially open up a room to be used as a nursery for the new arrival. When it comes to sharing rooms, you’ll be surprised at how much your kids will take after your attitude. If you make it fun and exciting, they will catch your enthusiasm, which leads to more room for the baby.
Optimize Closet Space
As you look around your home for additional space, be sure to pay close attention to the closets in your home. You might find that spending some time optimizing or re-organizing your closet can give you quite a bit of space you didn’t realize was there. This might include adding a few extra shelves, over-the-door organizers or simply clearing away clutter.
Out With the Old
When planning for the arrival of the newest addition to your family, be sure to look for opportunities to get rid of items in your home that you just don’t need anymore. Maybe this is a good time to do a thorough purge of toys around the house or to get rid of clothes that no longer fit. Clearing out space in the garage can also help create more space for storage.
You may find that getting creative with the furniture in your home is a great way to make space for your new arrival. Bunk beds and convertible furniture can definitely add space in a bedroom. Find a crib that will double as a changing table to save space in the baby’s room.
Just because you are adding another person into your family doesn’t necessarily mean you have to give up the things you love. Instead of getting rid of furniture that you still hope to use someday, store it in a clean and safe self-storage unit at Cactus Storage. If you’re not ready to get rid of extra clothes just yet, simply box them up neatly and move them into your storage unit.
