While some may call it having an “empty nest,” more optimistic people call it having more usable living space. Once the kids are gone and have moved out it may be time to think about what you really want your house to look like. Instead of having those rooms just be bedrooms that are only used once in a great while when your children visit on holidays or laundry day, wouldn’t it be lovely to have a library, or a craft room, or create a room for your husband to renovate into his “man cave.” Wouldn’t it be better to make the spaces what you want them to be and make them into usable space?
One of the first obstacles in making these rooms into what you envision them to be is the stuff that your children have left behind. While your son may have loved his vintage dresser covered in band stickers, it is not really your style, and the walls definitely need a fresh coat of paint. To clear out the space, a quick and easy solution is to rent an Etobicoke storage locker nearby until your kids can decide what they want to keep, or find a place to take their stuff with them.
Once the space is cleared out, and everything is safely packed away and moved into an Etobicoke storage locker space you can begin the process of renovating the rooms to become what you want them to be. A fresh coat of paint, steam cleaning the carpets, and getting to that back corner to clean that hasn’t been seen in ages can turn the space into a new room already.
Now that the space is cleared of everything, painted, and given a good scrub it is time to set up the new room. The canvas has been cleared and you can create a space that is all your own. A space that you can create to whatever it is that would make you happy.
This is just one example of how an Etobicoke storage locker could help with the renovation process for a room or two. Just this one little example would help you to see how having a self storage space could really go above and beyond lending itself to help if you were renovating a whole house, or several rooms of a home.
For full scale renovation having the space cleared is the best way to get the renovation done quickly. You will not have to constantly move furniture to paint, or redo floors. Additionally by having your furniture cleared out it will be protected from any construction debris, and dust that could scratch the paint or finish. The probability that hammers and paint rollers will stay clear of your furniture during a renovation is slim, so its best just to clear out the spaces with help from a self storage unit.
So whether you are renovating one room or are undertaking an entire home renovation having the space to work and providing protection for your stuff can leave you with a renovation that brings you the vision that you have for your home.
