Moving to a smaller home is often a great idea. You can save money, maintenance and remove clutter. But, with the benefits, you also have to think about the downsides which come with downsizing.
But first we need to think about what we lose. There could be pieces you love which won’t fit into the new place, and you’ll want to hold onto them. Thankfully, this isn’t the end of the world, but you’ll have to do a lot of work to make sure you don’t lose your beloved pieces. Downsizing could also impact your daily life. Habits are often born around their environment. Downsizing could leave you living somewhere which doesn’t enable your old habits. Adaptability can be very hard, especially when it’s the space you live in.
Firstly, flexible self-storage is available almost everywhere. Accessible and affordable self-storage means you can have all of your important stuff looked after.
But, secondly, some of the items you own won’t be able to be stored elsewhere. If you need them in your everyday life, you don’t have a choice; they need to be at home. To overcome this, there are loads of clever storage solutions out there to help you. Companies like Ikea have pioneered this art, as homes get smaller and people are owning more than ever.
Moving to a smaller home is never an easy process. Most people will get very used to the space they have, and it could take a long time until your new place feels like home. Of course, though, with the right effort, you can make it a lot easier for yourself.
