Are you a foodie who loves to cook at home? If so, you have probably developed an impressive collection of kitchenware. Whether you live in a small apartment or a larger home, all of this kitchenware can quickly add up. This can create some problems, as there is only a limited amount of cabinets, drawers and shelf space in your kitchen. Many people want to keep their collection of kitchenware, but they simply do not have the space. Fortunately, there is a solution. If you find yourself running out of space in your kitchen, a Vancouver storage unit can help. By renting storage space, you will be able to declutter your kitchen while still keeping your collection intact.
Our Top Three Tips for Storing Kitchenware
Wrap Your Fragile Items in Protective Packaging
Most kitchen items are fragile. Whether you are storing glassware, plates or even pots and pans, you need to take extreme care when moving these things in and out of your storage unit. Fragile items should always be individually wrapped in the proper protective packing material. The material that should be used depends on the specific item in question. For example, if you are storing some sturdy old plates, you can feel confident wrapping them in newspaper. On the other hand, if you are storing antique glasses that were handed down by your grandmother, you may want to use the best bubble wrap on the market. If you have any questions about storing fragile items and selecting packing material, the storage experts at Iron Gate Storage would be happy to help.
When possible, kitchen items should always be kept inside of a box or a bin. This is important for a couple of different reasons. Ultimately, this provides an extra level of protection for your items. You do not want anything getting lost or damaged. Additionally, boxes also make it much easier to keep your storage rental unit well organized. By neatly stacking your boxes on top of one another, you can maximize your space.
Know What’s in Your Unit
Finally, it is always recommended that you keep an inventory list of the items in your storage unit. Remembering every little item in your unit is difficult task. Why even bother trying? Instead, simply create a master inventory list. This will be an incredibly useful tool, and in the long run, it will probably save you money. After all, if you forget what is in your unit, you may buy something you do not even need.
