Congratulations, your child's off to college!


August 16th, 2022

After all your hard work, you’ve sent your child off to college.  You now have the joy of determining what could you do with the extra bedroom space.

Most people these days opt for a dedicated home office to better support remote or hybrid work.  It’s so much better than sharing the dining room table or living room couch.  Setting up a home office will give you privacy, organization and better focus.  It also gives you an important psychological lift as you’ve better defined your work / home balance.  Look at some home office setup ideas here, based around your work style.

Or maybe you’d like to move your widescreen TV from the living room.  Many people are doing this as it makes your living room much calmer.   It creates a place for you to read or gather with others without the constant noise from a TV.  And with the improvement in soundbars, you can bring much better audio to your TV-watching even in a smaller room.  Look at some great TV room ideas here. 

Of course, now you need to figure out what to do with the furniture as you refit the former bedroom.  One idea is to donate it, and the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Raleigh is a great option to consider.

But, you still have the matter of leftover clothes and possessions that never made into that dorm room at college that you want to keep.  For these situations, there’s Extra Attic Self Storage.  We have climate-controlled storage units in a wide variety of sizes ranging from 5’ x 5’ up to 10’ x 15’.  Climate control protects mattresses, fine furniture, and other possessions sensitive to moisture or temperature extremes.

Extra Attic will give you the ability to rent month-to-month and will guarantee a level rental rate for at least 12 months.  All our units are at ground level so no navigating elevators or long narrow aisles.  We provide secure gated and fenced facilities available to you 7 days a week.  Our onsite management is available during office hours if you have questions or need assistance.
