If it’s your turn to play host this holiday season, squeezing your friends and family in your home can create a very noticeable reminder that it might be time to upgrade your living space. Scrambling to move furniture around to make room for your guests is a hassle that shouldn’t be necessary each and every time. So if you’ve finally decided to play host for Christmas dinner, this might just be the season that you’ll discover if you have enough living space to accommodate the lifestyle you enjoy.
Here are a few tell-tale signs to watch out for that are shouting for you to finally make a move.
Your Bedroom Becomes Storage Central
Moving furniture around is one thing, but if you have to physically remove and tuck it away in your bedroom or other spare room when your family is coming over, this is a pretty significant amount of effort to endure for hosting a get-together. If this is a scenario that you frequently face, it’s a tell-tale sign that you’ve simply outgrown your current living space.
You Can’t Accommodate A Dinner Table
Do you have to resort to buffet style with guests and family eating dinner on their knees? This may have been doable when you first moved into your place, but eventually, you reach a point where the discomfort of your current space simply outweighs the idea of finally making a move. Imagine being able to fit and accommodate your entire family around a single table and finally feeling like you’re mastering ‘adulting’!
Your Entranceway Gets Buried In Coats
Does your entranceway or a portion of your living space get buried in winter gear as your guests arrive? Imagine being able to tuck every coat, hat, and scarf neatly away in available closet space. Well, you don’t have to! Biting the bullet and finally committing to moving means you can increase your storage capacity and free up even more space for your friends and family to move around.
Too Many Cooks In A Tiny Kitchen
When your friends and family start to gather around your tiny kitchen space inevitably, are you internally wishing they’d just mingle elsewhere to free up some much-needed elbow room to cook? When overcrowding in the kitchen really just equates to one or two extra people, it’s time to take a good look at your living space and ask yourself whether it’s really worth sticking with it.
During the holiday season, it’s a time when you’ll truly discover if you have enough living space, whether you want to face reality or not. So do yourself a favour and listen to those voices of frustration that arise each time you’re playing host at home. If they’re telling you it’s time to move, it might be worthwhile to listen.
