Create More Space with A Self-Storage Unit

Do you ever look around your home or apartment and think to yourself, “I really need more space?” Unfortunately, moving is not always an option. Maybe you’ve even considered selling or donating some of your household items? Luckily, with a self-storage unit, you can get rid of the clutter and still keep your excess furniture and personal items.


Where to Start


Take a good look around your home or office. Look for areas that feel cramped or cluttered. Make a list of all of the items you may want to place into storage for later use. From oversized tables and furniture to excess office equipment, a self-storage unit is a perfect place to store items for future use.


Self-storage units come in various sizes. Once you've determined what you want to store in your unit, you will have a better idea of the size storage unit you need.


Typically, a storage unit will hold the following:


Smaller sized self-storage units (5 x 5 Unit {25 sq. ft.}) - Approximately the size of a large closet, this smaller storage unit is perfect for storing excess items such as twin-size mattresses, a small table, chairs, books or any number of boxes and storage totes.


Medium sized self-storage units (10 x 7 Unit {75 sq. ft.}) - Ideal for storing the items of a small apartment or condo, a medium sized unit will hold several pieces of furniture (such as a small couch, small dining room set, chairs, seasonal items, and other miscellaneous items).


Larger sized self-storage units (10 x 15 Unit {150 sq. ft.} and larger) - If you have a three-plus bedroom home, this is the unit for you. A larger unit provides plenty of space for large screen t.v.'s, sporting equipment (i.e. bikes), large furniture (i.e. king sized bed, loveseat, end tables, etc.), a full dining room set, music equipment (i.e. a drum set or grand piano) and many other items you need to store.


What Should Your Store in Your Unit?


This is where your list comes in handy. If you look at your home in terms of each room, you’ll be able to create more space in each area of your space.


  • Dining room - The dining room is an excellent place for entertaining family and friends. You want this space to feel warm and welcoming, and not stuffy and cramped for space. If your table has an extra leaf for large dinner parties, consider storing it in your unit until you need it. Place any extra dining room chairs, buffets, or other larger items in storage to free up your square footage. This will not only create additional space to enjoy during daily use, but you can also remove your items from storage when you entertain in the future.


  • Bedrooms - A storage unit is a perfect place to store your clothing and bedding between seasons. Consider storing you guest bed in your self-storage until you have an overnight guest. This will allow you to use the extra room as an office or area to exercise in between family visitors.


  • Garage - You know you won’t be waterskiing or camping in the near future, so why waste your garage space on seasonal items? Store all that extra gear in your storage unit until you embark on your next big adventure.


  • Odds and ends - As we journey through life we pick up items along the way. From art and books to pictures and other memorabilia, these items can make your home feel cluttered. Storing some of these items in your self-storage unit allows you to create more space. Best of all, you can switch them out when the mood strikes.


If you want to create the illusion of expansive space, a self-storage unit is a key to decluttering and organization. Whether you have a few key items you wish to store or an entire apartment, a clean, secure, and temperature controlled unit from Morespace is guaranteed to keep your items safe until you're ready to use them again.
