READY TO MOVE IN WITH YOUR PARTNER? STORE YOUR STUFF!
March 17th, 2021
When the time comes, many of us will choose to commit and move in with someone who means everything to us. It’s a momentous occasion, and we couldn’t be happier, but it’s not a decision that comes stress-free. You’re bringing your couch; they have a couch. You’re bringing your bed; they have their own bed. It’s likely that you have similar stuff and will end up with two of everything. We have an answer!
Check out these simple solutions for creating more space in your home when it’s time for two lives to come together.
Declutter your living area
Have too much stuff? The first step to creating more space is parting with items that don’t fit your lifestyle. A huge weight will be lifted off your shoulders once you get rid of that extra clutter. Tidying your home can also be a relaxing activity that you and your new roommate do together.
When you’re done decluttering and don’t know what to do with excess items, you can always donate them to your local shelter.
Choose furniture that doubles as storage
From headboards to ottomans, there are plenty of furniture options that include compartments for extra storage. This type of purchase is a great investment if you don’t want to sacrifice storage for style.
Use organizers in your bedroom closet
Closet organizers and dividers will help reduce any confusion about where you’ve placed your stuff. Removable hooks can be hung inside your closet to store purses, hats, belts or smaller items.
Be sure to use labels on your storage containers to organize your belongings.
Optimize space by adding shelving on your walls. You can use this opportunity to highlight your favorite books and collectibles while adding personality and charm to the room. Hang a pegboard in your kitchen to sort pots, pans, and tools or add small trinkets such as picture frames, a small plant, or anything that holds a special place in your heart.
Consider installing additional shelves or sliding drawers in your kitchen pantry and cabinets to maximize storage in small spaces. Then, use matching jars to organize loose items or even store your spices. This will create a clean, cohesive look to your pantry.
