Getting ready for guests at Christmas

Rebecca Arkell | December 19, 2014

Christmas is just around the corner. Do you have houseguests coming to stay over the festive period? Do you have the space for them?

Planning for houseguests

Christmas is a great time for everyone to get together and enjoy some time with families and friends. A lot of the time, families live quite far from each other and the only option is to have houseguests. Problems arise when you try and work out where to put everything currently in your home. If you’re anything like the rest of us, then chances are over the years you’ll have accumulated quite a lot of “stuff” and your guests need some room to sleep off the Christmas lunch or hang over and you’ll also need to make way for a larger table to seat all of your guests in one sitting. It could be that you want to have a Christmas party and invite everyone and anyone! Whatever your reasons, you need to make space for every eventuality over the season of goodwill. Furniture needs to be moved and maybe even moved out.

Storing your furniture outside of your home

External storage is probably the best solution to solve all your space issues. At Storage Giant, we can offer you a vast range of storage, which ranges in all shapes and sizes to suit your needs. From smaller units, which are 5ft by 5ft to larger storage rooms at 10ft by 20ft and many sizes in between, we will have a room to suit you.

Leaving your furniture in the home and working around it can work but you also have to think if it will feel like you are being squeezed into your home. When people come to visit, you want them to feel comfortable knowing you have the space for their visit. If everything is bundled into a corner, the house will feel over run and so will you before the festive period is over!

The other problem you may encounter is damage to the furniture. With parties and houseguests, you cannot be everywhere all the time ensuring no-one is spilling drinks on your beautiful furniture. Storing it out of the home with you would ensure you’re safe in the knowledge it’s safe from clumsy guests and sticky hands over the festive period.

Whatever your reason, if you need short term storage to get you through Christmas until the New Year, come down to Storage Giant and see how we can help you.
