Admin | July 6, 2020 @ 12:00 AM

Having access to quality self-storage space will help you when you're looking at all those home storage ideas and trying to make them work in your own house. The trick to achieving organization at home, is to start by removing all the excess. This is best achieved through the help of storage facilities.

Below we'll explain how self-storage space in Arroyo Grande can clear out space in your home effectively, and what you can do with your new space to transform your home and enhance your organization. 

Declutter Efficiently

With access to AG storage units, you can transform your home from a cluttered mess to a more minimalistic space very quickly. Instead of piling up boxes of items to be sorted through in your house itself, you can move them over to storage and start working on your home organization straight away. While in storage, you can sort through all the extra items you don't want or need any longer and figure out whether you want to give them away or sell them to open up space. 

Maintain Empty Space Over Time

One of the biggest benefits of AG self-storage is that a unit can open up space in your home over the long term. When used properly, it's possible to remove the items from your home that you don't use often, but that still take up valuable space. Seasonal items can be removed from your home's storage spaces and sent to self-storage. This leaves you with extra space in your house to store items that you use more frequently, which can really help give your home a more open look. 

Invest in Storage-Enhancing Furniture

The right furniture can transform a room from cluttered to put-together in a hurry. The trick to making this happen is to decide on furniture that has multiple purposes and can replace several pieces in your home, or that includes hidden storage space you can use to declutter and organize. Look at things like tables and stands with hidden compartments, Murphy Beds that change into desks, pull-out,  other furniture items that fit your needs well. 

Reorganize Your Home into Themes and Styles

When you have some space to breathe, you can begin thinking about the actual look of your home. While organizing your remaining belongings, it's important to think about how you want the furniture in your home to look.

Plan out themes for different sections of your home, that determine the style of that section as well as the items stored there. Use your themes to help you choose decor, shelving, furniture, and to help you decide what items you'll store in each part of your room. 

Give All Your Items a Specific Location

It might seem like a daunting task at first, but one of the most important things you can do for the appearance of your home, and your sanity, is to give every item in your house its own place. Separate the different items you own into areas based on their theme or purpose, then go to work finding a place for every one of those items to live. Not only will you find relief in knowing just where everything is, but your home will immediately look more organized and stylish as a result of your efforts. 

Transforming your home into a put-together and trendy space is a lot of work, and it's not something you can achieve in just a day or two of effort. With that said, investing in a self-storage space in the Arroyo Grande area can help speed up the whole process in a big way. Work with a storage company you trust and get enough space to effectively declutter your home. Do this and you'll be able to organize and style your home more effectively than you might expect.
