When it comes to raising children, our households often accumulate a lot of clutter as we go through the various life stages with them. There does come a time though when they leave the nest, which leaves us with choices as what to do with the furniture and other items that have collected over the years. Then of course you need to decide what to do with the extra room!

For many dads, a man cave comes to mind. For the mums, it may be a crafts room or an extra space in which to store a wardrobe. Whatever you have planned for that extra room when the time comes, you are still left with the task of deciding what to do with the items that have been left behind.

You may have items that you are looking to pass down the generations when your children decide to have kids of their own, or it could be something that is just too sentimental to consider giving away or selling. If you are going to keep these items but don’t want to clutter the room, self storage is an affordable and convenient solution.

Why self storage?

Here are a few reasons why self storage make sense when it comes to decluttering that spare room:

  1. You don’t have to throw out or give away any sentimental items. A time will come when that bed, rocking horse or the big fluffy toys will be used again. Why not place them into self storage to pass down the generations when the time is right.
  2. It’s really convenient. If you find that you no longer need the space or need more room for any reason, you can simply upsize or downsize your unit at no extra cost.
  3. You won’t be tied into any long-term contracts. With us, you can stay for as little as two weeks or for as long you like.
  4. It’s perfect for a home renovation. If you are looking to renovate the spare room, simply store the furniture in it with Storage King for when the project is complete. There’s no need to clutter your living areas with extra furniture while you wait on the job to be completed.
