Renovating Your Home with New Floors? Self Storage Can Help
If you’re a homeowner planning to refresh your living space with brand new floors, you probably need help with the pesky problem: what to do with your furniture and other belongings during the renovation process. This is a common dilemma, and it’s one that Mini Mall Storage, your local self storage expert, is here to help you solve.
Keep reading to find helpful tips for your reno and why self storage is the best choice when it comes to revamping your home with new floors.
When Your Floor Hits Rock Bottom
If your hardwood floors have seen better days, marked up by wear and scratches, or your laminate flooring has clearly fallen out of style, you’re likely ready for a much-needed makeover. However, when you start considering the many steps in the reno, you might wonder whether you’re ready to dive into the task.
We get your hesitancy, especially since overhauling your floors entails addressing not just the flooring itself, but also all the stuff that rests upon it—your furniture. But remember, strut-worthy floors are well worth the effort.
Let’s take a look at the options for storage while you work.
Self Storage vs. The Shuffle
If you’re planning to install vinyl, laminate, or plank flooring in a small area, you may have the flexibility to move furniture to sections not being worked on. But generally, replacing floors means everything must go out for the new to come in.
Remember to invest in supplies like boxes, furniture pads, and moving blankets to protect your items and flooring as you shuffle. Always lift furniture instead of dragging it to avoid damage, and don’t be afraid to recruit help.
Self Storage vs. Your Garage:
While using your garage for storage might seem convenient, it often has limitations. Garages tend to be filled with household items, tools, and outdoor equipment. Not to mention what a garage is usually for: your car! During renovations, it’s easy for your garage to become cluttered and make accessing your stored items a challenge.
Also, most garages fluctuate in temperature as the weather outside changes, which runs the risk of damaging or distorting items that need a climate-controlled environment to stay in top shape. Once you start using your garage for storage, it’s a slippery slope getting back to a clutter-free space. We’ve been guilty, too!

Self Storage vs. Other Rooms:
Clearing out a room inside your home might be a solution, but it can create a logistical puzzle. If you move items into one room, you’ll likely need to shuffle items from that room to another, making the process more complex and time-consuming.
Whether you’re revamping your floors or have hired help, you also want to keep pathways and working areas in the home clear to avoid accidents and prevent delays in the schedule.
With an organized and clutter-free living space, you’re less likely to add stress to your renovation project.
