Summertime in Colorado is gorgeous, and this weather inspires many local people to tackle big projects around their homes and properties. From major renovations to minor fix-ups, it’s a great idea to take advantage of summertime to make your DIY dreams come true. Many household projects, including decluttering, remodeling, and landscaping, often require a lot of tools and materials. They also may displace you and your things for a while, particularly kitchen renovations or garage conversions.
So, where does all of this stuff go, in the middle of a home project? Usually, scattered all over the place! One of the reasons why renovations are so stressful is because there is often clutter and boxes piled in places they usually aren’t, making for tighter living quarters, more tripping hazards, and an overall unpleasant feel. It can be hard to find the things you need, or maneuver around your own home or yard, which is enough to make most of us cranky. However, it doesn’t have to be this way.
If you are planning a renovation project this summer, consider renting yourself a self-storage unit in Fort Collins. This is a highly-underutilized resource for homeowners across the city, and too many people look past this brilliant idea. With a safe, climate-controlled storage unit, you can shuttle some of your belongings offsite, leaving more room for you to work. No matter what you need moved, you can find a storage unit that suits your project. If you need to empty out the garage, you can stick your boxes, bins, unneeded tools, car stuff, and other items in your unit. If you’re tackling a kitchen remodel, you can finally get the big appliances, pantry items, and decor out of the way. And if you’re doing some landscaping, you can take your patio furniture, gardening tools, lighting, and even extra soil, pavers, or mulch, to your storage unit for safe keeping.
Don’t make your summer home and garden projects more stressful than they need to be. You can rent a storage unit for a short amount of time- no long term contracts- and give you and your family some breathing room. You may also decide, in the middle of your undertaking, to do some additional decluttering or redecorating, and it would be handy to already have a self-storage spot ready to go.
