What to do with your furniture when you install new flooring

Have you decided to replace the flooring in your home? You’ve taken the time and effort to decide on the best material, style, and color for your house, but now that it’s time to install your new flooring, you may be asking yourself: what should I do with my furniture when I install my new flooring? This is a question many people ask themselves. Luckily, there are many easy answers to this question.

Move your furniture into another room

If you’re only installing new flooring in one room of your home, then this is a great option that won’t cost you any money. You can easily move your furniture into another area of your home while your new material is being installed. If you’re replacing the flooring throughout your home, this method will require more work because you’ll have to keep moving your furniture around as each room gets finished.

Use your garage

If you have space in your garage, temporarily moving your furniture into it while your new flooring is installed can keep it out of the way. You won’t have to continue moving your furniture around if you’re installing new flooring throughout your home, too. This is also a free option that keeps your furniture close.

Use your outdoor space

This option will, of course, depend on the weather outside, how long the installation project lasts, and if you’re comfortable leaving your furniture on a patio or porch. If you’re installing new flooring in one or two rooms, which will likely be installed within a day, then this is a valid option, especially if there is no rain or snow in your forecast. You can easily and temporarily store your furniture on a porch or patio if you have no garage or shed space. If you go with this route, be sure to keep your items covered to protect them from bad weather.

Rent a storage unit

Whether you don’t have the space in your home to store your furniture temporarily or your entire home is getting new flooring, renting a storage unit or mobile container can be a lifesaver. There are many short-term rental facilities where you can easily rent out a unit to store any furniture you need to move. You do need to keep in mind that there are restrictions to what can be stored in these facilities.

You can also rent a mobile container, which you can park and store on your driveway while the installation is in progress. With a mobile unit, you won’t have to worry about transporting your furniture to and from a facility, and you can keep all of your belongings on your property, locked up safely.
