With the availability and affordability of Self Storage Services storage units, you can put some of that old furniture into self storage and give your home a fresh area makeover.
Give Yourself a Game Room
A great idea that can really help drive away the blues is to convert your spare bedroom, basement, attic or even your dining room into a game room. If you tend to eat in the living room, in front of the TV or in the kitchen, you can lease storage units inexpensively for your dining room table and chairs so that you still have them for special occasions. Fill your new game room with video games and a poker, pool or ping pong table to whittle away the winter hours.
Create a Craft Room
Another great area makeover idea is to create a room where you can get serious about a hobby. It doesn’t matter what it may be, but dedicating a room to building models, sewing, crafting, scrapbooking or collecting is a great way to immerse yourself in something you enjoy and stave off grumpy moods. This makeover is also relatively simple to complete. In most cases, you just need to move extraneous furniture into self storage and replace it with a desk or workbench, a shelf, chair and your crafting tools.
Clear Space for Exercise
One of the best ways to improve your mood in the winter is to establish a regular exercise routine. You can do calisthenics, aerobics, yoga, or any other activity that gets your blood flowing. However, you may want to clear the room to create an open space that is conducive to movement. You may also want to bring in some equipment such as a weight bench, a stationary bike or a treadmill.
Giving your home a little makeover is a surefire way to get rid of the winter blues, and the changes don’t have to be permanent. You can retrieve your original furniture and décor from your self storage unit in the spring or summer.
