In recent years, many property developers have come up with a new concept of fitting ‘nano’ flats into buildings to make housing “more affordable” for the public. However, with limited space, even if you purchase one of the ‘nano’ flats, you may not be able to fit all your belongings inside. Here are some helpful tips from Minibox on how you can use mini storage units to create more space in your home.
Tip No. 1: Store Unused Seasonal Clothes in Mini Storage
There’s never an accurate answer when it comes to the average amount of clothes or shoes each person owns. Throughout the 4 seasons in a year, we often change our wardrobe depending on the weather. This includes clothes, shoes, handbags, and even accessories. Most of the time, this process is a pain to go through every few months, but today there is a solution. Whenever you’re done with your seasonal clothing, pack them up and place them into mini storage units to save space in your wardrobe. This way, you don’t need to dig through your entire wardrobe to find the right clothes every time you go out.
Tip No. 2: Books and Collectibles Belong in Mini Storage
Old photo albums and books often cause problems when we store them for long periods of time in our home. When the weather gets humid, paper tends to soak in the water particles in the air, causing mould or turning yellow. By placing used books, magazines, photo albums, or artwork into mini storage, you get more space in your ‘nano’ flat while avoiding mould build up and strange smells. Mini storage units provide 24-hr air conditioning to keep consistent temperatures and humidity, protecting your most precious memories from rotting away.
Tip No. 3: Store Away Large Appliances in Mini Storage
De-humidifiers, fans, heaters, and electric mats are all appliances commonly used in specific seasons. These can be strategically placed in mini storage units when they’re not in use to save space in your ‘nano’ flat. Similarly, other household appliances that seemed like great purchases at the time but have now fallen out of use can also be stored away, such as pots and pans, bread machines, soymilk makers, sandwich presses and more. Be sure to pack these items properly to make the most use out of your mini storage unit!
