Does Your Child Want to Move Into a Bigger Bedroom?

Anyone who has children knows that they grow up fast, and as they grow, they often need more space. While they spent the first few years of their life in the nursery, which then became a small bedroom, they may now want to move into a bigger bedroom in the house. Once they reach a certain age, they need more space to live, sleep, and play, and the small bedroom they’ve been in may no longer suffice. At EZ Storage® in St. Louis, we can help you store those items that are currently in the bigger room, as well as the furniture and accessories from your child’s current bedroom.

Storing Your Baby Items

dreamstime_xxl_6374885 (1)Once your child was out of the crib and using a small bed, you may have put the crib in the garage, attic, or basement. You simply wanted to get it out of the way, but if you’re planning to have more kids, you may want to hold onto it for the future. With a small self-storage unit, you can store your crib, dressing table, and other baby furniture that you want to keep, but may not have the space for in your house. A secure storage space can keep everything protected from dust, water damage, and other risks that your home might pose.

Clearing Out the Bigger Bedroom

Perhaps your spare bedroom has been used as a storage spot for all those things that you couldn’t find a place for elsewhere in the house. It may function as a guest room at times, but if you need somewhere to store the bed, the dresser, and all the boxes and totes that have taken over the space, we can help you find the ideal unit. As you’re clearing out the bigger bedroom so that your child can move in, take some time to go through your belongings, and decide want you want to keep and what you can perhaps toss or donate.

Let Your Child Help

Since this is going to be their new bedroom, it’s good to let your child help clean and prepare the room. They may want a certain paint color for the walls, and you may be thinking about replacing the room’s carpet. Letting your child be involved makes them feel like a part of the process, and when it comes time to choose the bed frame, desk, and dresser, ask for their input. After all, they’re going to be the ones living in the room for the foreseeable future!

A Long-Term Solution

dreamstime_xxl_6357907You knew that once your child reached a certain age, they would have to move out of their nursery/small bedroom and into a bigger space in the house. If they’re seven or eight years old now, then moving them to a bigger bedroom can be a long-term solution for the next 10 to 11 years. As they get older, they’re going to want to have their own space, and being on a different floor or in a different part of the house than mom and dad can help them feel more independent. The furniture and decor may change over the years, but they’ll have the space they need to feel at home.

If your child has been asking to move into a bigger room, then visit EZ Storage® in St. Louis today to find the perfect self-storage solutions. We have a number of unit sizes to choose from, and our experienced staff can help you choose the right one.
