Clash in the Attic!
How does your storage and loft space look? Well, mine looks like the battle of the boxes. Boxes with no labels. And no lids. Loft space is a great gift for those who have it. While some like to keep their gifts nicely, others tend to sometimes forget about them. There are no ghosts up there. It is safe, I assure you. I know the ‘where do I begin?’ question comes to mind. If you have thought it, consider that you have just began.
It can be difficult trying to fight for space in the house, especially with a time like Christmas approaching, extra bits, decorations and some things simply which you do not have the heart to say goodbye. Overall storage space can be tricky, because sometimes, no matter how big or small the space you live in, there will not be enough room to always keep all the things you really want. There are some ways that you can help yourself use up the best part of your available space.
Plastic storage boxes with a lid are a convenient option; not only you can shut them to keep up any dust or moist out, but you can also stack them on one another to save space. You might have picture albums or old important documents which you can store in archive boxes. They are quick and easy to assemble and safe for files, papers and small miscellaneous items that are not in constant use.
Loft spaces usually get very cold in winters and can get quite moist and humid in the summer. Therefore, it is important you know what is up there and what probably needs to come down for some time. As extreme temperature conditions could damage your belongings such as paintings, or items that are not covered/ stored effectively.
After all the effort of putting everything away and in order, the last thing you will need would be rummaging through all your boxes to get to that one particular thing you needed. Save yourself the time and the hassle by creating some contents label with a brief overview of the things that are inside.
Out with the old
To be able to maintain your loft space, you must remember that, when you add another box to the collection, you should pull out at least one from the back to sort and check whether there is absolutely anything in there that you think you can live without. This way you will be able to maintain your loft space for longer and it will always be in constant use.
However you store, whatever you get rid of. Some things are lifelong treasures. And there does come a point where you eventually feel the space is getting too tight. Maybe the family is growing and you are having to move more and more items up to the loft. When you feel the time is right, look for a trustworthy storage facility that can store your goods safely and for as long as you need.
