It’s amazing isn’t it, that whatever size house or apartment you live in, you can always manage to fill every possible available space or gap with something! Self-storage units, combined with other practical measures, can offer a viable and affordable solution to the inconvenience of a cluttered environment.
If you’re struggling for comfortable space in your home, here are a couple of things to consider:
Allocate a place for everything
Just about everybody, at some time, has established for themselves, a ‘junk drawer’ – and perhaps that that ‘junk drawer’ has grown into a ‘junk box/wardrobe’ and metamorphosed, eventually, into a ‘junk room’!
Not only does this occupy valuable space in your home, but also becomes a ‘Bermuda Triangle’ when searching for something that you need! The key to avoiding this situation is to consider storage containers – there are a wide variety of types and sizes for storage containers these days. Storing things in transparent, and well-labelled, containers is not only space-efficient, but also allows easy access to items, as and when you need them.
It is a good idea to measure your internal storage spaces (wardrobes, cupboards, shelves) and then use that as a guide to buying relevant sized containers to fit in them. This system will also provide a much more accessible environment to keep rooms tidy and clean on a daily basis.
Use space saving furniture
There are lots of everyday furniture items that can be used for storage as well as its’ primary function. Make use of drawer-divan beds, stackable kitchen appliances (washing machines, dryers and such) – perhaps consider using a sofa-bed in a room to free up space during the day. Buy blanket chests and other free-standing storage solutions that are both attractive and practical.
Utilise a self storage unit
These are a great solution for a number of aspects. These units are safe and secure. Much of your storage space at home may be taken up with things that are only used sporadically – Christmas tree and decorations, seasonal sporting equipment (bikes, surf boards and such). You may have seasonal clothing – maybe some furniture you own, but don’t have an everyday use for. You may simply have possessions that you value – they may not necessarily have a practical daily use, but you want to keep for personal reasons.
All these sort of items can be considered to put into a self-storage unit. Most areas have storage unit facilities nearby, of all sizes and amenities, so are an ideal solution to keeping your precious things safe and accessible.
Whatever you space restrictions, self-storage units can be a great solution to your clutter dilemma!
