Kid’s flown the nest? Here are 3 ways to make the most of their bedroom

Following the Salford and Manchester Uni graduations, perhaps your kids are ready to move out of your home for good. And, as you may be aware, their first rental is likely to mean them downsizing and storing plenty of items at home. Rather than leave their bedroom as a reminder of the past, think of it as an opportunity to make the most of your space and reclaim your home. Read on to find out how you can create a silver lining from your kid flying the nest.

1. Use it as an opportunity to declutter

Decluttering seemed to be the buzzword of 2017 interiors. If an item doesn’t bring joy, then surely it can go? Take inspiration from this and bring some calm into your home by purging your belongings. Start with your kid’s bedroom – you may be surprised by how much clutter you find. However, be sure to ask before you get rid of items, to avoid any arguments.

2. Self-storage is your saviour

Reclaiming their room may mean giving it another use entirely, which is likely to have no need for a bed or bulky bedroom furniture. Perhaps you don’t want to part with these items or you’re unsure whether your child may return in a year or two? This is where self-storage comes in. Rather than having to get rid of items and regret it in the future, you’ll be able to collect them whenever you need. Self-storage is also a great way to store sentimental or important items that take up space, but you’re unwilling to part with. Fortunately, FlexiSpace’s locations include an easy to access space in Manchester – perfect for staying local.

3. Be selfish

So, you’ve spent 20 years or more raising them, it’s time for a bit of ‘you’ time, right? Think what you’d really like to do with their space and go for it. Perhaps it’s an exercise room, a home cinema, walk-in wardrobe or even a workshop? Use this time to indulge in yourself.

4. Create a space that has more use than one

To make the most of your space, turn it into a multi-functional one. An office can double up as a guest bedroom, or a walk-in wardrobe can double up as a gym. Be inventive and cater to all your needs.

Secure Storage Solutions

Clean, safe and secure storage solution at an affordable price, highly recommend this place, very close to the heart of manchester, easy access in and out. Big thanks to Tricia and her team for sorting out my storage needs, very knowledgeable, professional and more importantly friendly.
Highly recommended.

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.

100% recommend Storage World. The storage lockers are well priced, secure and very clean. The facility is well set up to make loading and unloading very straight forward. Jeni on the desk was so increddibly helpful and went out of her way to make sure we were well set up and happy. Thanks very much to all at Storage World and particularly Jeni!

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.
