We are in the midst of winter and the coldest months of the year. It is hard to actually think about the spring flowers, planting gardens and remodeling projects around the home. January through March are popular months for Home and Remodeling Shows throughout the Baltimore, Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. areas. These shows are great opportunities to see the latest information and products and get some ideas for starting home projects.

Self Storage for Home Remodeling Projects
After you have visited the different home garden and remodeling shows and received tips for your remodeling or renovation projects, it is time to start planning the projects for spring and summer. The quicker that you plan the projects, the quicker you can enjoy your new room. Before you start your renovation project, clear the room of all furniture and personal items. Renting a self storage unit for household storage is a great way to keep the furniture and accessories protected during the renovation. If the remodeling project allows you to get new furniture, then keep the older furniture in a storage unit until you decide to sell, donate or throw away the belongings. Self storage is also a great storage option for contractors to store tools and supplies during projects.
