October is nearly over, which means that the holidays are almost here! At EZ Storage® in Detroit, we love the holiday season, and we know that it can be a busy time for you and your family, especially if you have guests coming to visit. If you need a self-storage unit for any of your belongings, then visit one of our metro-area locations today to find the perfect space!

Parking Spaces

One of the biggest challenges that can come up when guests come for the holidays is finding space for everyone to park. There might be spots on the street, but there could be regulations about leaving cars parked there overnight. You only have so much room in your driveway and garage, and when you have people staying for an extended period of time, you want their vehicle to be safe.

If your grandma or grandpa has just purchased a new car, and you want to be able to park it in the garage, then it might be necessary to move things out of the way. You can put things like garden tools, the lawnmower, and other items into storage for a month and make room for another vehicle!

Guest Rooms

While it may be a few weeks until your first guests arrive, now could be the best time to start getting the spare rooms ready. You may have to turn your home office into a bedroom, or the designated guest room may have become a catch-all for random things. Whatever the case may be, moving things out of the way can help your visitors feel more at home while they stay with you.

Focusing on the closets can be key, especially if there are things in there that could be put into storage. You might need the closet space for those items that are in the guest rooms, such as boxes or small furniture, that need to be put away for a short period of time. With the right approach, you can have your guest rooms ready to go in no time at all!

Kitchen and Dining Room Use

The two rooms that get more use during the holiday season than any other time of the year are the kitchen and the dining room. People often gather in the kitchen as food is being made or snacks are being served, and then they move to the dining room once the meal is ready. There are also impromptu gatherings of friends and family when people stop by to say hello during the holiday season. The natural inclination is to head into the kitchen or dining room, where food and seating are readily available.

If you have things in either room that need to be moved out of the way, then self-storage is a great option. You can clear out kitchen cupboards that are filled with things you don’t use too often any more, making it easier to get to the things you will need during the holidays. As for the dining room, you may need to move things out of the way so that you can put the leaf in the table and create more seating space for everyone.
