It’s that time of year again, Hampton Roads – the time of year when thoughts of sunny days at the beach seem tantalizingly close…..and yet breathtakingly far away. We’ve got a while to wait, and while the weather is unpredictable, what better time to clean out your clutter?
There are lots of simple ways to spruce up your living space and Jack Rabbit Self Storage is here to help. Whether you’re looking for a fresh start or hoping to stage your house for sale in the future, every house could use a good deep-cleaning once in a while.
Check out our list of tips and tricks for help getting started and stop by any one of our 11 convenient locations anytime. Our resident property managers are happy to show you around and help you determine which unit fits your storage needs.
Lose the Cold Weather Gear.
Swap seasonal items out (winter coats, hats, scarves, gloves, gear like snow boots, boards, skis, and sleds) for their warmer weather counterparts! When you’re satisfied with the dramatically increased space in your home, box it all up (don’t forget to label!) and drive it all down to the nearest Jack Rabbit self storage location.
Warm up Your Living Space.
Similar to swapping your wardrobe seasonally, your home decor should also fluctuate with the weather. Replace the heavy flannels, pine wreaths, and holiday accents for light linens, fresh-cut flowers and pastel throw pillows. Now that your house is ready for warmer weather, pack up all that coziness and ship it to the North Pole (A.K.A. your Jack Rabbit Self Storage unit) for next year.
Clean, Clean, and Clean some more!
It’s true, there is no substitute for a good house-cleaning. It may not be a game-changer, but your home is sure to feel fresher, brighter, and may even feel larger when you’re done. Removing needless clutter or finally washing that enormous pile of laundry will dramatically enhance the look and feel of your home.
Consider Changing Your Arrangement.
When you’re craving a fresh start, there is no easier way to quickly satisfy it than to rearrange your furniture. Move a few things around, then if you don’t like it, move them again. Switch decor from one room to another – you may be surprised at what works in a different room. You may even want to get rid of some furniture – if that happens, drop it off at your Jack Rabbit Self Storage unit for a few days or weeks while you think it over.
Trust in Jack Rabbit.
Whether you’re looking to upstage the neighbors or impress potential home buyers, let Jack Rabbit be your secret weapon. Store your seasonal, oversized, or I’m-still-not-sure-if-I-want-to-keep-those items in one of our air-flow designed storage units. For fragile items (wooden, antique, important paper documents) utilize one of our premium climate-controlled units to regulate humidity and mitigate damage.
Thanks for stopping by. We hope to see you soon at one of our 11 convenient locations!
