How to prepare your home for the arrival of a new baby

Having a baby is both an exciting and nervous time, especially if it’s your first. As your family grows, certain changes need to be made. Lifestyles need to be adjusted and space needs to be re-prioritised. Here are a few tips to prepare your home for your new bundle of joy.

Prepare in advance

In most cases, parents-to-be will have several months to prepare for the arrival of their new baby. Leaving the preparation of the nursery to the final moment will only add stress. You never know when they will arrive! Set small goals to achieve at a steady pace.

Determine the most important needs

It’s important to assess the most important needs for the baby when deciding which room will be used as the nursery. Consider how close it is to the main bedroom and the level of noise that the room receives. Consider ventilation as well.

Declutter the space

You may be surprised to discover how much furniture and belongings come with having a baby. Once you’ve decided which room will be the nursery, you’ll need to make space for the baby’s arrival. In many instances, this step requires decluttering and removing unused items. Renting a self storage unit is a great way to hold on to your valuable belongings without compromising on space. 

Be smart with storage and furniture

Even after decluttering, you may have limited space. Take advantage of smart storage space solutions and invest in furniture that doubles up in functionality. For example, a set of drawers that can also be used as a changing table. 

Prepare for potential challenges

Having a baby can disrupt the usual routine. As a new parent, you’ll find yourself waking up in the middle of the night and feeding your baby in the early hours of the morning. Consider freeing up the corner of a room to put a comfortable feeding chair.

If you need a safe and secure space to keep your belongings while you make room for the baby, then Storage World is the perfect solution. We offer a variety of different size units and flexible lease agreements, providing a safe space to store your belongings for as little as two weeks.

A Quick and Easy Process

Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company

Same Day Move In

Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!

Extremely Helpful Staff

Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.

Trolleys and Good Lighting

Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.

Business Self Storage

Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
