Summer Equipment Storage Solutions
Now that summer is drawing to a close, it’s the perfect time to decide how you’re going to store all your summertime tools and equipment during the colder months. Some of these summer accessories are small and easy to store, such as pool toys and gardening tools, whereas larger items like bikes and outdoor grills present more of a storage challenge. Here are a few storage solutions to help you find space for all those summertime accessories during the off season.
Shelves are a great storage solution for smaller or less delicate items. They can also be used to create a nice decorative accent and add a cozy charm to any room. Summer items such as gardening tools and sports equipment like tennis racquets can all be placed on shelves or hung from wall hooks to save space. Since these items don’t require much seasonal maintenance, they can stay on your shelves all winter long without getting damaged.
Put It in a Bin
For flexible or sturdy summertime items, bins are the best way to make sure that nothing gets damaged. Inflatable pool toys, for example, can be deflated and folded to maximize storage space. Candles, lanterns, and bird houses can be wrapped in protective material like bubble wrap or newspaper and placed in bins for easy storage. Put these bins somewhere convenient and out of the way, like a basement or garage, so they’re easy to find once summer rolls around again.
For bigger or more delicate summer items, a self-storage unit is the best storage solution. It can be hard, for instance, to find the space in your home to store an entire patio set during the winter. Some sports equipment such as bikes, water skis, or surfboards need lots of space and specific environmental conditions to avoid damage. At Migson Public Storage, we offer temperature-controlled units in a variety of sizes, so you can find the storage unit that suits your needs.
