In today’s modern age, many people are choosing to downsize from their large home to a space-efficient and modern condo. This is a popular and feasible option for many people, but sometimes it does pose one significant problem. Where can I store all my valuable heirlooms? While many people use some of their heirlooms to decorate, such as antiques, vintage furniture, monogrammed plates and the like, sometimes there is simply not enough room to decorate your entire condo with your heirlooms. Another issue is that heirlooms can be quite fragile. In this case, many people who live in condos choose to store their heirlooms away for safe keeping. Fortunately there are many ways that you can safely store your heirlooms, antiques and valuables without risking damage to your precious objects.
Depending on the type of heirloom or antique you are trying to store, there is like a specialty storage box that can contain it. These boxes are specially designed to maintain the life and beauty of your most prized heirlooms, from photographs to linens. You can even have a box custom-made so that you can rest easy knowing that your prized possessions are securely tucked away from harm’s way.
Pack Your Fragile Items Well
Make sure that when you are packing away your most fragile items that you use something to pad the box in which your items rest in. Whether you choose to use newspaper, packing peanuts, bubble wrap or something else, make sure that you do your research to determine what the best option for you is. Sometimes, heavy blankets and sheets are best for very fragile items, while newspaper and packing peanuts are good for storing multiple small items within one container.
Rubber totes easily and securely store many objects and they come in a variety of sizes, colors and varieties. Rubber totes can easily be stored and stacked in a closet, in a storage room or another free space in your home. They are great for organizing valuable photographs, too.
If you love to show off your family’s history, heirlooms or treasures, there is no better way to store your heirlooms than to invest in a curio case. Curio cases show off your valuables in a highly visible and attractive manner and come in a variety of styles and sizes.
Once all the heirlooms are safely packed away, a self-storage unit is an excellent place to keep them, especially if you are short on space and worried about valuable antiques getting damaged or destroyed in your smaller living space. Storage units come in a variety of sizes and can fit just about any antique collector’s needs.
