When your children move out of your home for the first time, it can be an emotional roller-coaster! You’re proud that they are growing up and maturing, but for selfish reasons, you don’t want them to leave. Not only will they be taking the next step in life, but your life will change as well.
You no longer need to worry about waking them up for school, putting a hot meal on the table or negotiating TV programs, your worry now is, what to do with their room!
Many parents leave their child’s room as they left it in case they come back home. However, if they have left for good, then what’s stopping you converting their room?
Memories will be the first thing that comes to mind. Your child has left, and this room is the last thing to remind you of the times when they were dependant on you. Also, you don’t want to hurt their feelings by throwing away their clothes and possessions, which is why a storage unit is a perfect solution.
By renting a self-storage unit, you are able to empty the bedroom and place all your child’s belongings in a safe and secure unit. This way, you are not throwing any memories away and you can finally convert the spare room into a room of your choosing.
A study conducted by the daily mail states:
· Two-thirds of children leave items when they move out
· Parents throw out on average £285 worth of items
· 1/10 argue every month about the clutter left behind
· 36% leave the room untouched
· 1/12 de-clutter a week after their child has left
Every parent loves their child unconditionally, however, keeping their room the same does not make you love them less, it ultimately stops you moving on as well. Throwing away their items may cause arguments while losing your money.
Store your items with Spaces and Places and start turning the spare room into your dream room.
