Creative Ways To Use A Storage Unit


Mummy says….You will have all probably heard of self storage units. Obviously, the most popular way to use a storage unit is to store either things we don’t have room for at home, or things we want to keep safe as we carry out building works and DIY. But there is a whole load of cool creative ways to use a storage unit….

Creative Ways To Use A Storage Unit

Self storage is actually a lot more diverse than you may think at first, if you pay for a self storage unit you can use it for whatever you like, within reason, as long as when you hand it back it is in the same condition as when you bought it. Curious? Read on to find out how you can use your self storage unit in a more creative way for all the family:

Mum could use Office Space

A storage unit is a small room, and what kind of thing could you use a small room for? A home office. If you don’t have a lot of space at home and you want somewhere which is quiet, private and fits your needs: make your storage unit into a small office space. You can place a couple of desks, some storages and link your electrical equipment to the facility’s power supply. This can be a much cheaper way to run your business than renting an office, and you can decorate it to your own style.

Bog bro Luke would love an Art Workshop

If you don’t want to continue messing up the rooms in your home when completing art projects, then a small self storage unit could be the perfect answer for you. You’ll be able to lay out paper and cloth underneath your equipment and get your work done in peace. The beauty is that you won’t need to risk having to move the piece before it is completely finished, you can let your creative juices flow without feeling like you are being watched and judged. If you want to sell your pieces you can even invite the client to your storage unit to view the artwork firsthand.  

Cousin Matt (and Luke) would love a Gym

Going to the gym can be stressful: not just because of finding the time to take out of your busy schedule, but also it can feel a little intimidating trying to workout in front of those who are much fitter than you. However, if you have the money to buy a treadmill and some weights, you can put them into your storage unit and use that as your makeshift gym. It will mean you are able to workout without paying for those hefty gym fees, and without being under the scrutiny of other gym goers.

Lea, here is Your Main Stage

If you have a band or you play an instrument, you are probably used to your family members not being too enthusiastic when you start playing loud music first thing in the morning. That’s why moving your practice to a self storage unit can be a really great way to use the space. Put up some soundproofing and practice without having to worry about the noise and you can even record your music in there too! Lea thinks this is a great idea, as she is just beginning to do gigs and needs somewhere to practice.
