Alternative Uses for Your Self Storage Unit

wine-426463_960_720We all know that storage units provide the perfect place to stash your motorcycle in the winter or your Christmas decorations in the summer, but if you think outside the box — following the rules of the storage unit facility, of course — your storage space can become almost an extension of your home, especially when it’s a climate controlled storage unit like we have available at Walk In Closets Self Storage.

Home Office

If you’re starting a sales business that requires you to keep inventory on hand, but you don’t want it in your living room, a storage unit could be your best bet! Keep all of those boxes stored out of your home in a facility that’s convenient and you’ll have easy access to your inventory anytime you want it. Put an inexpensive desk in there among the boxes and you’ll have a quiet place to work away from all the distractions of home.

An Extension of Your Artistic Space

Looking for a place where you can store your hobbies, craft, or art supplies? If you’re not making as many quilts these days as you used to, or your sculptures are too large to keep at home, a self storage unit is perfect for keeping your hobbies and artistic creations organized.

Your Dream Closet

If you’ve always dreamed of having one of those expansive and well-organized closets you see on TV all the time, a storage unit could get you close to your dream. Fill the unit with shelves and shoe racks, and your storage unit will become the perfect place to keep your off-season close, your huge shoe collection, or all of those leather bags you just can’t part with.

A Wine Cellar (of sorts)

While a wine cellar would be ideal, for many of us they’re not feasible to keep. A climate controlled self storage unit is perfect to store wine. They offer the ideal darkness, temperature, and humidity levels.

A storage unit can be much more than a place to stash your waterskis, even though that’s a good idea too. Get creative!

Resolve to Get Organized!

new-years-eve-1004535_960_720Happy New Year! If you made resolutions for the new year, believe it or not, a storage unit can help you fulfill many of them. Planning to exercise more? Travel? Get organized? Start a new hobby? A storage unit can help. You look skeptical. Let us prove it to you.

What’s the worst part of an exercise routine? Leaving the house! Think about how easy working out would be if you had your own home gym. If only you had the space. Why not transform that rarely used guest room into your own home gym? Stash your guest room furniture in a storage unit, which would cost a lot less than a gym membership, and exercise your way to rock hard abs.

Want to travel the world, but can’t figure out how to maintain a home in the States? You don’t have to! Let your lease run out, store your belongings in a storage unit, and go experience the world. After all, you only live once!

Want to get more organized? Clear out those cupboards without throwing everything away! If you only use your good china once a year, put it in a storage unit and clear cabinet space for that ancient, but well-loved, food processor cluttering up your counter.

Maybe this is the year you’re going to start sewing. Or painting. Or sculpting! But where are you going to keep those extra slabs of marble waiting to be carved? Certainly not your dining room. Store them! A storage unit allows you to easily pick up a new hobby without cluttering up your living space.

Let this be your year! And let us help.

How to Store Garden Tools

tools-103444_640We don’t mean to rush you. You’re still harvesting tomatoes, your fall kale crop is just starting to sprout, and the mums are ready to be planted. But looking ahead to preparing your garden tools for winter storage isn’t a bad thing. If you start now, you’ll have a much smaller job to do when it’s time to lock everything away in your storage unit.

Sharpen Blades

As you use your digging and cutting tools, look for a sharp edge. If they’ve become dull, which they likely have after an entire spring and summer of use, file the edges sharp again or take them to a professional to do so for you. Before storing these metal blades for the winter, use a stiff brush to loosen dirt and rust, and rub the metal with a light oil. And as long as you’re checking the blades, take a look at the handles. If they aren’t smooth enough for you to run your hand along them without getting splinters, rub them down with some fine-grit sandpaper.

Clean Your Mower

Never store a dirty mower. Make sure your mower is free from dirt and grass clippings. Empty it of fuel by running till it stops. Change its oil, sharpen or replace the blade, and put it in storage where it will be all ready for the first mow of spring. Give your trimmer similar treatment. Don’t put it in storage if it’s full of fuel and dirty.

Container Gardens

If you have potted plants in your yard that will die over the winter, it’s a good idea to empty them of soil and leave them outside, or bring containers full of soil into your storage unit to refresh and reuse in the spring. If you leave pots filled with soil outside all winter, the soil will expand and contract as temperatures change. This could result in cracked pots.

If you prepare all of your gardening equipment well for off-season storage in your unit, you’ll be ready to plant again when the gardening bug bites in the spring.
