Choosing Storage Sizes
Choosing storage sizes can be tough when determining how much space all your boxes are going to take up. Couches, chairs, beds, and kitchen tables appear to take up a lot of space but can be turned and packed certain ways to conserve space. This makes choosing your size of space difficult, when trying to save money and still have enough room for all your belongings.
Storage spaces run in all shapes and sizes. When it comes to choosing the appropriate size for you, the dimensions come in handy. There are very small units that run at a size of 5′ x 5.’ This type of unit would work best for someone who may have too much stuff to fit in to their new home. It works great for simple storage space, opposed to storage for things like coaches and beds. You might have small end tables, or coffee tables you want to keep but not use momentarily that will fit perfectly in a unit this size.
There are units that run at a size of 5′ x 10.’ This type of unit works great for someone who needs storage for a small home, like an apartment. With a 5′ x 10′ unit one can fit about two couches and bed as far as large furniture goes, with an addition of boxes and other materials that can be placed in the empty spots.
There are also units made for larger homes, or people who have a great deal of extra stuff. These units run around 10′ x 10′ in size and can hold a lot of your large furnishings.
The size of the storage unit matters, but making sure you pack efficiently and optimize the use of your space is key. Standing two couches up, opposed to leaving them sitting down is a great example of a way to safe space. Once you choose your unit size, it’s all up to you to make things fit.
