November and December tend to be the most joyous time of the year for folks, although stressful too. Over the holidays our homes tend to feel a little over crowded with house guests, friends, and children home for the holidays. For instance, the family room may have to double as an extra bedroom. Or a living room space may suddenly be taken up with a Christmas tree and presents. Hence why holiday hints for utilizing your Anchorage self storage space may be a stress saver. Best Storage Alaska is glad to offer a few tips to help you find more space for family and friends.
How to Prepare Your Home for Guests
First, rethink how your family room is organized. Chairs and sofas are often directed toward a TV – which is fine most of the year. But when entertaining family and friends, conversation is important. Consider setting furniture around a coffee table to help guests visit easily. If the family room feels crowded, placing extra furnishings in your Anchorage self storage space is a great way to open the room up.
Second, consider increasing seating space allow guests to rest and feel more comfortable. Utilizing extra chairs from the garage, basement, or your Anchorage self storage space is ideal. Borrowing any furniture that fits, such as a sofa from the den is great. It’s important to arrange your living area so that all your guests can be comfortably seated at once.
Third, try removing unnecessary furnishings such as foot stools, decorative lamps, or pet furniture. If you’re adding chairs and end tables (not to mention presents and trees), something is going to have to go. Eliminate bulky items and anything that blocks easy movement around your home. Hence why your Anchorage self storage space will come in handy in storing these temporarily unwanted items.
Lastly, guests staying over time will most likely bring coats and suitcases for use during their stay. So, it’s important to try to make some extra room for them and their personal belongings. Be sure there is easy access to bathrooms and to outlets so people can charge their phones.
