Storing Furniture Throughout the Seasons

Patio furniture set on a porch

Seasonal storage is a way for many people to declutter out-of-style items throughout their homes. But why stop there? You can also utilize seasonal storage year-round for furniture. Although the furniture you’ll store might change between seasons, the need for additional space in your home is everlasting. 

In this blog, our team at StoreLine will show you how self storage can keep your furniture better protected across the four seasons.

The Benefits of Seasonal Furniture Storage

Certain furniture is meant for different times of the year. For example, patio furniture is not made for the frigid winter months. Also, if left in harsh weather conditions, furniture can sustain substantial damage, such as:

  • Warping
  • Peeling
  • Cracking
  • Fading
  • And more

By renting a storage unit for seasonal furniture, you gain more space year-round, regardless of whether you’re moving, renovating, or decluttering your home.

Winter Storage

As the weather turns cold, you won’t want to leave your patio or outdoor furniture to the mercy of the elements as this can quickly fade and damage your outdoor furniture. Self storage is a wise investment compared to replacing your patio furniture every few seasons and the protection your outdoor furniture receives is priceless. For further protection, consider climate-controlled storage for your wooden or metal outdoor furniture.

Spring Storage 

Once the snow begins to melt, it’s never a bad idea to do some spring cleaning. With a storage unit, you can move furniture and other household decor in and out at your convenience. If you plan to store a considerable amount of furniture, make sure your storage unit has drive-up access to make move-in and move-out easier.

Summer Storage

In the heat of the summer, any unused furniture can sustain heat damage if left in a hot basement or garage for prolonged periods of time. This is especially the case for wooden and leather furniture. Self storage, especially climate-controlled storage, can provide a stable place to keep your furniture in pristine condition.

Fall Storage

Among the falling leaves, you’ll want to prepare your belongings for the colder weather. This is an ideal time to begin storing that patio furniture before the weather gets too cold. This time of year is also a good time to break out the fall and holiday decor. If you don’t want to wait until the first snowfall to store your outdoor furniture, fall is also the perfect time to do so.

Choosing the Right Storage Unit

Once you know what furniture you’re going to store and during what seasons, it’s time to find the perfect storage unit. However, that’s easier said than done. Thankfully, with the right tools and information, finding self storage can be as easy as your ABCs. 

To find the right storage unit size, use our size guide to see what size fits your furniture best. Even if you don’t have a lot of furniture to store, those furniture adjacent items like throw pillows and home decor, can also be put into storage when they’re not in use. Climate-controlled storage is an ideal solution for temperature-sensitive items, including wooden, leather, and upholstered furniture.
