How Storage Units Mitcham Will Help Your Growing Family

Deciding to start or grow your family is an extremely exciting time but there can also be many challenges along the way. You need to think about what a new child will do to your current family dynamic, including the relationship you have with your partner. Finances will also come into play and you need to really think about how you can prepare financially for a new child. Then, you have to think about space – do you have enough space in your current home? If not, can you afford to move to a bigger space? If the answer is again no, do not fret. Our storage units Mitcham will help you to make the space you need within your current home.

Within this article we are going to take you through the many ways that our storage units Mitcham will help you make space for your new arrival.

Declutter With The Help Of Self Storage Mitcham

For anyone needing to create space in their home, decluttering is a good place to start. But, decluttering your entire home can feel extremely overwhelming so it is important that you take it one step at a time.

Firstly, you should only tackle one room at a time. In fact, you could even go as small as one drawer or cupboard at a time. Some minimalists actually advise starting out at five minutes a day so you can slowly build up momentum. Whatever works for you and will help you to declutter you entire home in time for your new baby. 

Another way to declutter is to find a method that works for you. An example of a good method is The Four Box Method. You will need to get four boxes and label each of them: Keep, Throw Away, Give Away and Storage. And then you just go through each room and place items in the correct box. It is a very simple method but you must stick to what you have chosen to do with each item. Don’t leave the boxes in your house for weeks because items will start to come out of them. 

Anything in your Storage box can be brought to our storage units Mitcham but so can anything you aren’t sure about. You can go through these items at a later date when you have the time and energy.

Avoid Bulky Furniture…

When you begin looking for baby furniture, such as a cot, try to avoid bulky oversized items. No matter how well you have decluttered, if you then buy bulky furniture you will find that you run out of space again very quickly.

… And Look For Multi-Purpose Furniture

Look for the pushchair that can also become a car seat, a dresser that functions also as a changing station. These sorts of items will save you so much space with your nursery and within your home as a whole. 

It is also a really good idea to look for items that will grow with your child. This will save you a lot of money in the long run and stop you from needing to declutter again as your baby grows. 

Use The Vertical Space Within Your Home

Make sure that you use all your wall space, putting up plenty of shelving units and bookcases. This will give space to store items such as nappies, blankets, toys etc. whilst leaving the floor space clear and free of clutter. 

Make The Most Of All The Space

Going vertical is not the only way to really utilise your space. Storage boxes stored under your baby’s cots would be great to keep toys. The top of wardrobes is also a great place to utilise through the use of storage boxes.
