Storage Unit as Second Closet

Are you a self-admitted clothes horse? Have you run out of space in your closet for an extensive shoe collection? Why not store out-of-season clothing, shoes, and accessories in a storage unit? With some rolling garment hangers, you can keep things hung up so they don’t get wrinkled. Shelving units can store shoes out in the open where you can see them. When the seasons change, it’s easy to swap out wardrobes. You can store all those space taking, heavy winter items away for the spring and summer, and take out the sandals and shorts.

Storage Unit as Library

Are you a biblioholic with boxes of books stored in your basement or attic? Why not put them out on shelving units in a storage unit? You will be able to actually see—and touch—all of the books in your collection if they are well displayed. There will be little risk of damage either. This is much easier then having to dig, flip, and comb through your collection.

Storage Unit as Warehouse

Do you have a crafting business that is taking up too much space in your home? Perhaps you need a place to store supplies—or even finished products. Not only does a storage unit prevent your business from overrunning your home, but it also gives you a public place where you can meet with potential customers. It allows you add a layer of separation between workspace and homespace.
