What to Do With Extra Furniture

It may not be something homeowners deal with on a regular basis, but when you have extra furniture in the house, it has to go somewhere. At EZ Storage® in Philadelphia, we can help you find the ideal self-storage unit for any extra couches, chairs, tables, or bedroom sets that are simply taking up space in your home. You can store things for a short period of time until you sell or donate them, or you can keep them in storage long-term until you find someone who can use them.

Couches and Chairs

Couches and chairs can take up a lot of space in your house, which is fine when you’re using them for watching TV, reading books, or general relaxation time. If you buy a new couch or easy chair, then you’ll likely swap out an old one to make room for it. You can always move the old couch or chair into another room, such as the guest bedroom, or your teenage child might want their own seating solution in their room. However, bedrooms aren’t often big enough for a bed and a couch, or even a chair, which means you’re likely going to have to stash the furniture in the garage or the attic.

A self-storage unit can be a great alternative to storing your couches and chairs in the garage or attic. Even if it’s just for a month or two, using a local storage space can alleviate the stress of trying to fit your excess furniture in another room until you decide what to do with it.

Tables and Chairs

Your kitchen has a table and chairs, as does your dining room. You likely use the kitchen more often, but you’re still glad to have the dining room, especially when the holidays arrive. If you’re thinking about updating either space with a new table and set of chairs, then you’ll have to move the old furniture out of the way. You may also be planning to remodel one of the spaces in the near future, and the table and chairs are only going to be in the way.

Putting your kitchen or dining room table in storage can help protect it from damage, which is very important if you’re planning on using it again in the future. If you’re going to sell the table and chairs, then the better condition they’re in, the more they’ll likely sell for once you find an interested buyer!

Bedroom Sets

Bedroom sets, which often include a bed frame, dresser, nightstands, and a mirror, can pose quite a challenge when it comes to storage. You may not think about it while they’re being used in one of your home’s bedrooms, but once you have to store everything, you’re quickly reminded of how heavy and bulky everything can be.

If you’re updating your bedroom set and need to store the old furniture for a period of time, then it’s important to make sure everything is moved and stored correctly. The mirror will likely need to be unmounted from the top of the dresser, and you may need to take the bed frame apart for transportation. There are often people looking to buy used bedroom sets, so you may not need to store things for long.
