Home Improvement / January 6, 2021
Your lights are up, the decorations are hung, and you can’t believe how you managed to store all your decorations away after cleaning up last year. If you do not have a dedicated space in your home for your holiday decorations, it can be stressful pulling them out and putting them away every year. Here are a few ways your home can be organized to find a special place for those beloved decorations.
Home organization is all about maximizing your space. If you have a cluttered storage room, an unfinished basement, or room in your garage, these are all ideal places you can store your holiday decorations. Places that are unfinished such as your basement or attic can be made into the perfect storage spaces if you hire a handyman to simply add some insulation and drywall to finish up the space. This way, shelves, cabinets, and more can be installed to safely hold your boxes, piles of lights, and more.
When putting away holiday decorations, it’s important to keep them organized so you know where everything is for next year. To begin, make sure you pack everything away in sturdy boxes to avoid any breakage, and purchase packing material, tape, markers, and labels. Label every box such as one for garlands, one for stringed lights, and more. If you have decorations for different holidays it is very important to label which box belongs to which holiday as well.
How you pack away your belongings has a big impact on the home organization of your decorations as well. For example, fragile ornaments will need to be wrapped separately. You may wrap and bag smaller ornaments, so they are not loose in the box, and be sure to not store anything heavy on top of the boxes with fragile items. Lights will need to be wrapped up and to avoid tangles, the best way is to wrap your lights around something whether that is a sturdy piece of cardboard, wood, and more.
Home organization from renovating an unused space in your house, labelling, and sorting your decorations, and packing everything away safely, you and your family will be ready when it comes time to pack your holiday decorations away.
