It’s that time of year that we like to go above and beyond to decorate our homes for the holiday season. Festive décor adds warmth and whimsy flare to any apartment. We recently shared some DIY holiday decorating ideas that are sure to provide lots of inspiration.
However, there is one downside to all the holiday cheer and decorating: cleaning up. We still have a few weeks before we need to take down holiday décor, but once we do, it can be a great time to reorganize!
Check out three ways storage solutions in and around your apartment can help.
The best place to start is by creating a plan to get organized. Think about themes for your belongings, such as bedding and linens, towels and blankets, holiday decorations, cleaning supplies, clothes, etc. Arrange your belongings by their theme so you know where they are. As you’re working on those organization goals, check out our September blog post with tips to organize your apartment. Those ideas will be especially helpful as you’re cleaning up all the holiday décor and cheer in your apartment home!
Maximize Closet Space
Once you have an organizational and storage strategy in place, it’s time to start putting away items you don’t need. Closets are a great place to start. Organize your closets by theme too so all your decorations are in one place and all your bedding and linens stay together. Consider using large plastic bins and clear containers to hold items. Label these bins to quickly identify what’s inside. Stacking these bins and containers will maximize storage space in your closets. Fortunately for residents in HHHunt Apartment Living communities, all our apartments for rent include large walk-in closets like the one in the featured image from Abberly CenterPointe! They also include a ton of storage space throughout the home.
Consider Garages or Storage Units
If you need even more storage space, consider renting a garage or storage unit. These spaces are best for large and bulky items, such as furniture and televisions. Garages and storage units vary in size and are often used as people transition from one home to another. Residents at HHHunt Apartment Living communities have access to either garages or storage units. These spaces are especially convenient because they’re located on-site at our communities and provide easy access for residents. Some of the garages also offer a reserved parking spot. Contact the office at your community to learn more about availability and rates for garages or storage units.
At HHHunt, we believe it’s how you live that matters. We hope these storage ideas help you find a solution that works best for your needs. And remember, HHHunt Apartment Living is here if you’re searching for apartments to rent in Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, or Virginia!
