Whether you live in a big city like Glasgow, or have a cosy cottage out in the country, space can often be at a bit of a premium. All too often, attics are filled to bursting point with old clothes and unused toys, garages are groaning under the weight of disused garden tools, and spare rooms look less like rooms, and more like landfill sites!
If this sounds a little like you, don’t despair. Firstly, take comfort in the fact that you’re definitely not alone. Here in Scotland, many people wish they had more space in their homes. Secondly, here’s some further comfort… there is a solution.
Self-storage units are more often than not associated with moving home, or for storing your things when you go on a gap year, or to university. However, their benefits are far more diverse than that. Many savvy home-owners are now cottoning on to the fact that self-storage provides a brilliant way of freeing up space in the home, without losing the valuable items you love.
Here’s just a few ways you can create more space in your house, with the help of GTW Storage:
- Put bikes and other large items into storage. Bicycles can take up a huge amount of room in the garage or shed. Even worse, if you’ve not got any outdoor storage area, you’ll end up having to leave them out in the garden. Likewise, garden furniture, when it’s not in use, can really take up valuable space. When you don’t need them, store them in your personal self-storage unit, and free yourself from needless outdoor clutter.
- Store things your kids have outgrown. Many people choose to sell baby equipment and toys when the children have grown up. However, it’s becoming ever more popular to hold on to them, especially if you’re expecting grandchildren! If this applies to you, take the chance to make your house your own again, and put the items into storage.
- Give the camping gear a new home. If you’re a keen camper, or have several suitcases, it’s likely that your holiday gear only emerges once or twice a year. Rather than allowing your tent to take up the entirety of the attic, rent a self-storage space and keep it in there until you need it.
