Why Storing Furniture is More Practical Than Buying New

When it comes to moving, we know how exciting it can be to decorate and design your new space. However, many people think that this means buying new furniture to compliment the space. Yet, there are so many fun and creative ways to make use of what you have.

Chances are, you already have what you need, and self-storage may help you come to that realization. By utilizing your personal storage unit to keep your furnishings safe until you’re ready to use it, you’ll save time, money, and energy.

What Furniture to Store When You Are Moving

A few months before your move, you may consider beginning to pare down what you don’t need. This way, when the movers come, they are only moving exactly what you need them to. You may want to create three piles — one for items you’ll bring to your new home, one for items you plan to trash or donate, and a final pile for items you want to keep in storage. The types of furniture you can store include:

  • Storage shelves, dressers, etc. that are in good condition and can be used
  • Furniture from spare rooms that you may not need while you are in the staging/selling process of your move.
  • Guest room beds, nightstands, etc.
  • Chairs
  • Outdoor furniture if you are moving in the offseason

Basically, any furniture you can live without while you are selling your home or moving may be a good candidate for storage. By getting this furniture out of the way, you are giving yourself the opportunity to figure out what you need from what you already have.

The Benefits of Storing Instead of Buying

By storing your furniture, you can think of your unit as a closet of possibility. You’ll know when you get to your new home that you have this secret shop of things you can use in your new space. This is the best type of shop because you don’t have to buy anything new! Your well-loved items will be waiting for you to use in your new home. It is a fun way to be creative and save money for future endeavors.
