Clean house, clear mind – We have all heard this phrase used, but is there any truth to it? Well, according to the experts, yes there is.

It’s christmas time, the most wonderful time of the year. Your home will soon be host to family and friends visiting you over the christmas holiday. But as more people turn up, the less room you will have! You will have to pull out the emergency chairs and make the best of what little space you have. But there is another option, we at Multistore have some fantastic tips to maximize your space this holiday season. 

The Christmas holiday season brings lots of cheer but also brings on a lot of hosting obligations. It’s always great to spend time with family and friends but fitting everyone in your living room or kitchen can be chaotic. Our first tip is an obvious one but also a wise option, declutter your home. You and your family gather up items which you never use or won’t be using for sometime and remove them from your home. Perhaps consider looking into a self storage room to store your items until you are ready to use them again.

The priority is to make room for your family, friends and maybe a few presents as well. Like preparing for a christmas meal some organization and planning goes a long way. After you have gathered up your items why not pack them away into boxes or clear containers, even better why not label them? Once you have organised your items you will need somewhere to store them, we offer many different types of self storage options at Multistore. When maximizing your living room space it might be worth considering opting for a small tree. We know that this a focal point of christmas, but by losing a little height off your tree you can maximize the space in your living room. This will allow for an extra relative or maybe extra present space. Also if you aren’t buying a real tree you can have one side of your artificial tree folded in which will allow for a lot more space. This is a great, simple option and makes all the difference without compromising the look of the tree.

We mentioned the emergency chairs being used at christmas, these can take up a lot of extra room in your living room/home. Foldable chairs are a great option, they fold away easily and can be stored away after christmas dinner.

We hope that you have found these tips useful and that your christmas holidays are magical. When you do come to organizing your items consider using one of self storage rooms.
