Besides getting your plans and designs just right for the new look you want to give your home, you need to think about the furniture and other items that you are in possession of at the moment. Redecorating your home is not just about finding the right shade of midnight blue or fuchsia for your bathroom or the right material for your kitchen worktop that looks the closest to marble and functions better. It is also about deciding how much of a change you need and what you are going to do about the furniture you wish to keep. Your furniture and other belongings could probably be summed up in three categories.
1) Furniture and items that are precious to you, which you are planning to include in your newly decorated home: these could be the most expensive pieces of furniture or electric appliances (although not necessarily) that you wish to put into safe keeping for the duration of your redecorating project. Unless you feel sure that they are not likely to be touched, scratched or go missing during your home redecoration project, you should have these things packed up well and stored in a professional storage facility. You could easily find self storage facilities for them near you because there are so many of them in the U.S., in various parts of the country.
2) Furniture and other items that are not exactly valuable or valued but included in the newly decorated home: you might think it would be okay to leave these in the house while it is being redecorated. But you should make sure to have them wrapped up in appropriate ways to ensure no painting, oil or any other coating will get on them. There may be dust of all kinds while things are happening during your redecorating project, and some stains are not easy to get rid of. If you are unsure you should think about having these items stored up as well. If you find a big enough storage unit, offered at a good price, you may have enough room for everything anyway.
3) Furniture and items worth keeping until you find a better purpose for them: these are the things you do not want to have in your newly decorated house. But you may be unsure, and want to find out if you really will not be in need of them. You may also be thinking about arranging a garage sale for them or giving them to a friend, or someone who might make better use of them. Until you get your house all perfectly furnished you want these out of the way in any case. These should also be stored with your other things, but packed away separately so that you would not be spending ages going through them.
4) Furniture and items that you feel sure you won’t need: you would be throwing these away or hope for someone to pick them up. This should be done carefully as you could easily confuse category 3 and 4.
