Five tips to help organise your next home renovation


Whether it’s your first home renovation or your tenth, then you’ll know just how quickly things can become chaotic.

Fortunately, there are easy ways to stay organised. To help you through this journey, we’ve put together a list of 5 five tips to help organise your next home renovation.

Embrace the chaos

No matter how closely you stick to your timeline; your renovation will more than likely become chaotic. So instead of trying to resist it, we recommend embracing the craziness.

Here are some small adjustments you can make:

Figure out which spaces can double-up (bedroom as living room)
Work in weekly meals that are easy replacements without a kitchen
Maintain a space that’s dust-free and tools-free
Keep your everyday essentials in one room

Another great tip way to embrace the chaos is to plan around your timeline. If it’s just a few weeks, then drastic changes might not be necessary, but if it’s a year, then you may need to consider other living arrangements to keep life sane.

Categorise the Clutter

At some point during the renovation, you might feel overwhelmed with clutter. To help manage this feeling, organise your clutter into categories.

Here are the four categories that you can use to organise the clutter in your next home renovation:

Category one: “I’ll need this throughout the reno”

Category two: “I’ll need this from time to time”

Category three: “I definitely won’t need this”

Category four: “I should’ve gotten rid of this a long time ago”

Keep category 1 and 2 (your must-have essentials) together to make sure it’s easy to access at any time and anything that falls into category three, you should store. If you’re not reaching for it, get it out of the way.

Consider convenient storage

When starting your renovation, you’ll likely have furniture you want to keep and furniture you’re selling or giving away.

For the furniture that you decide to keep, consider a convenient storage solution where you know it will be safe and won’t get damaged.

TAXIBOX helps you turn stuff into space so you can focus on getting your home renovation done. With self storage in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane – they make moving and managing local or interstate storage fast and easy.

Keep storage organised

The best way to combat the stress and chaos of moving your stuff is to make sure your storage is organised.

Whether it’s using labels or where it’s stored, here are a few things you can do to make it easier to move and locate what you need:

Make sure your storage is compact and free to move
Be methodical with how you stack your stuff
Minimise storing stuff in your closet so it can be used as a safe zone

Remove as much as you can

One of the best ways to stick to your home renovation schedule and keep things organised is by clearing the space where the renovations are happening. A great way to easily clear the space is by putting all your stuff in a TAXIBOX.

TAXIBOX offers on-site storage and mobile self storage. Their on-site storage option stays at your property so you have easy access to your stuff while making space indoors for your renovations. Plus, the boxes are sturdy and durable so they can handle rain, hail or shine.

Their mobile self storage is just as easy. Your TAXIBOX arrives, you fill it up, and then they take it away to store your stuff at their facility or the next address. Then they redeliver the box whenever the renovation is done or you need it back.

To ace your home renovation organisation, book your TAXIBOX online so you can get your stuff out of the way and the show on the road.
