Starting On Your Summer Projects

Backyard space during summer

Now that summer is officially here, you might be ready to start those projects that you’ve been planning for months. At EZ Storage® in Detroit, we can help you find the right self-storage unit for anything you need to move out of the house or out of the way while you paint the bedrooms, organize the garage, or add new landscaping to your yard.

You may have been waiting for summer so that the kids were out of school and could help you with some of the projects, or so that the weather was nice enough for outdoor projects. Whatever the case may be, our team can show you several storage space options that can keep your belongings safe and sound until you’re ready to take them back home.

Painting the Bedrooms

A fresh coat of paint can do wonders for a bedroom, and if you’ve been thinking about updating the guest room, the master bedroom, or the kids’ rooms, summer can be a great time to do so. You’ll likely need to move some of the furniture out of the room while you paint, and you’ll have to wait a day or two before anyone sleeps in the room, since the paint will need time to dry (not to mention the often overwhelming smell of new paint).

If you have any furniture that you want to put into storage while you update your home’s bedrooms, we can show you several size options that are ideal for bed frames, dressers, and more. If you’re updating your bedroom sets along with the paint colors, then you can store your old bedroom furniture until you have the time to sell or donate it.

Organizing the Garage

Organizing the garage is often a summertime project simply because you have the free time you need to tackle it. You wanted to wait until the weather was nice enough so that you could open the garage door and carry things in and out as needed. You also may be using the garage more as you work on various projects around the house, and with the kids on summer break, they’re likely taking their bikes, skateboards, and other items in and out of the garage on a regular basis.

It can be best to start with the boxes and tubs that are stored in the garage, especially those that you haven’t gone through in years. Pulling everything off the shelves might seem tedious, but it can help you determine what’s worth keeping, what can be put into storage, and what can simply be tossed. It can also help you decide if you want to have a garage sale this summer and make some cash selling some of your old belongings!

Adding New Landscaping

Summer is a prime time for yard work and landscaping, and now could be the perfect opportunity to plant new trees or to remove old bushes and shrubs. Perhaps you want to re-sod the front yard so that you have lush green grass all summer long. Maybe you’ve been thinking about adding a new concrete or stone patio in the backyard for summertime barbecues and weekend parties.

While new landscaping doesn’t often require you to rent a storage unit, you may have items that you want to add to your yard that need to be stored for a few weeks while you finish your outdoor projects. For example, if you’ve ordered new patio furniture or playground equipment, and you don’t have anywhere to store the boxes while the yard is being finished, we can help you keep it safe for as long as you need. Instead of trying to find a place in the garage (which may or may not be organized), you can rent an affordable storage space and protect your new items.
