When starting a business, you need to find a space where you will not become distracted.

It is easy to get up and make a snack if you work in the kitchen and the temptation of a nap in your bedroom can be hard to resist; this is why you need a room where you will not get lose focus and can fully concentrate on running a successful business.

Once you have decided on which room you are going to convert into an office, it is time to remodel. Cleaning, clearing and decorating are the first steps you need to undertake.

If your business is purely online such as eBay, how you decorate depends on your personal preference. If you will be conducting face to face business, decorating your room should revolve around your company colours and vision.

If you own a business, you will understand how easy it is for your working space to become cluttered with important paperwork, merchandise and products. With studies showing that the average person spends around 4.3 hours every week searching for paperwork; being organised is key to business success.

If you do not have space in your home to create an office, or you simply prefer to detach your work life from your home life; turn to self storage. You can turn the space into something special and create a platform to sell products. Have a look at how this eBayer transformed a storage unit at Spaces and Places.

Also, self-storage becomes a necessity for businesses that have gathered paperwork over the years. You will have file cabinets filled with important documents that you can not afford to throw away. These documents naturally take up space and removing them from your office will give you extra room.

Whether you need to store documents or rent a business unit, Spaces and Places are here to answer any questions you may have. With top of the range security and access to your unit 24/7, there is no better time to get in touch and start growing your business today.

You may be shocked to learn, a clean home not only reduces stress levels, it also makes you less prone to becoming unwell.

Asthma, allergies and irritated eyes are a few symptoms that occur when your home is untidy and if you have been suffering with a cold lately, the first thing to do is to create a healthy home.

Step One – Tidy Up

First things first, decide which items you want to keep in your home and which items can be thrown away, kept safe in storage or donated to charity.

Items such as extra chairs, seasonal clothing, keepsake items etc. are best kept in a safe and secure area such as self storage.

Clothes which you have not worn for numerous years, have little sentiment attached to them and are in good condition can be donated to charity.

Once you have decided which items you are keeping and which items you are throwing away, it is time to clean!

Step Two – Clean

Now your home is organised, start thoroughly cleaning each room. If you notice mould or water damage, this needs to be checked asap, especially if you or a person living in your home suffers from asthma or has allergies.

If redecorating your home has crossed your mind, then there is no time like the present! Your hard work has allowed you to have a clean and tidy home and a fresh coat of paint can work wonders in brightening up your home.

Step Three – Do not slack

Even though your home at this moment is clean, tidy and organised, remember to keep on top of your cleaning tasks.

While it is easy to go back to old ways, don’t let your hard work become undone as a safe and healthy home will help prevent illnesses occurring!
