So the time has arrived when your children have grown and moved out of your home.

To help you in the redecorating of your home, Millcreek Self Storage in Salt Lake City can provide you with the storage unit you need for all of your children’s items or your old furniture. Below are some tips you can try when you are going through the redecorating process.

Get the Family Involved

A lot of what you will be organizing had once belonged to your child. By having them over to help you organize you not only can sort through a large amount of belongings, but you can have some quality family time as well. Your children are the perfect ones to help you decide what you can and cannot use in the future, and they might even be willing to take some items to their own homes.

The 3-pile Organization Method

When going through your items it is suggested you sort them into 3 specific piles: keep, donate, or throw away. If you notice your some of your piles are growing larger in size compared to the other piles you might want to consider renting a storage unit. Millcreek Self Storage in Salt Lake City will help you in keeping those items you can’t seem to part with.

New Room Options

Now that those extra bedrooms are empty you can get creative what to do with this new space. Now is the opportunity to have an at home office, craft room, or in home gym. You can use some of the existing furniture you already own to make the space you own and save on redecorating costs.

Children Items on Display

While you will always love your children, and often miss them being in your home, it is important to not display too much of your children’s items in your home. This helps with the transition of the empty nester process and allows you to have that much more space to make your own. Offer to give those sentimental items to your children or place them in storage. This way you can still have those special items in your life.

Take the opportunity of your newly empty house to make it everything you can dream of. The possibilities are only limited by your creativity.
