With Christmas and Hanukkah in the rearview mirror, you are probably trying to figure out how to store your decorations. You want to make sure they are intact for next year, but you also need to make sure they do not take up too much space. That is where at-home organizing for your winter holiday decorations can be beneficial. What are a few of the most important tips you should keep in mind when storing your holiday decorations? Keep reading to find out how Closet & Storage Concepts West Berlin can help.
Label Your Containers
First, you need to make sure you label your containers. Store all of your holiday decorations in dedicated containers, and place a label on the outside. That way, you know where all of your items are located, and you can select the right box at the right time when you need to decorate next year. Do not forget to label the holiday as well, as you might have containers for the 4th of July, Halloween, and other holidays in your home.
Tip: If you use clear containers, you can easily separate by holiday and items will be protected from weather and regular wear and tear.
Wrap Your Holiday Lights
If you love the holidays, you might have a lot of Christmas lights as well. For example, you may have some lights for the outside of your house, and you might have lights for your Christmas tree. You should use a piece of cardboard and wrap your Christmas lights around it. Wrapping your Christmas lights is beneficial because you don’t have to worry about them getting tangled and they’re easy to unfold for next year. Then, make sure you store your lights in an area where they will not get crushed.
Find the Best Room
Finally, select the best room in which to store your holiday decorations. You might want to put them in the garage or your attic to keep them out of the way, but some of your decorations might require a climate-controlled solution. Therefore, you may want to work with an expert who can help you create a storage system for your holiday decorations in the closet. A custom closet or cabinet could be the solution you need to finally tackle your holiday cleanup.
