Around the House
January 17, 2013
There are two shows going on this weekend in Baltimore and Washington D.C. The Baltimore Build, Remodel and Landscape Expo is this weekend, January 18th-20th at the Baltimore Convention Center. The D.C. Home and Remodeling Show is also taking place January 18th-20th at the Dulles Expo Center. The Capital Home and Garden Show is also at the Dulles Expo Center from February 22nd to 24th. The Maryland Home & Garden Show takes place over two weekends in March (March 2nd-3rd, 8th-10th) at the Maryland State Fairgrounds. The Arlington, Virginia Home Show will be March 9th at the Thomas Jefferson Community Center.
With so many shows, you can gather some great suggestions and ideas! All of the home and garden shows will have experts in home design, landscaping, organization and remodeling. Show attendees can go to DIY seminars to learn more about planning and doing renovation projects on their own. These shows are great to see new products, examples of “green” homes and landscaping tips. After you have attended the shows and started to create the plan for your new space, it is time to create a “Must Do” list. The list will include ordering the materials that you need for the project and deciding if you will need professional help. However, high on the list should be renting a self storage unit to place items from your home during the restoration project. Placing your furniture, artwork, kitchen equipment and other belongings in storage during a renovation project will protect them from the dust, dirt and possible paint drops that can occur during a renovation project. Just covering the items with a paint tarp or drop cloth will not protect them from external temperature changes, moisture and all of the dust from a reconstruction project. If you are changing furniture in a room during your project, store the older furniture in the self storage unit until you decide if you should keep the item, move it to another room, such as the basement, donate, sell or give-away the furniture.
ezStorage offers month-to-month leasing options at all of our storage facilities, which is perfect for temporary use during a renovation project. ezStorage also has packing supplies at every location. Packing the items from the room in new sturdy boxes will help protect them in storage. Stop in to any of our 46 locations to see how we can help you scratch off one of the most important items on that “Must Do” list during your renovation or
