5 Innovative Ways to Use a Storage Unit, Dothan, Alabama

While storage units come in handy when you need extra space or a temporary location to house items, they can also be used for more creative endeavors. With a little planning and ingenuity, you can turn a regular storage unit into an extension of your home or office. Here are five ideas to explore.

Creative Ways to Utilize a Storage Unit

1. Personal Gym

2. Rehearsal Space

When you and your band need a place to practice your tunes, choose a soundproof storage unit. You won’t have to worry about disturbing the neighbors or taking up space in your garage with music equipment. Self storage facilities are also great for keeping your items safe when not in use, eliminating the need to drag them between locations.

3. Workshop

If you are crafty, use your unit for your creations. From furniture refinishing to scrapbooking, a storage facility can be set up as a workshop complete with tables and shelving for tools, materials, and projects in progress. Save a corner for your completed work and keep your designs protected.

4. Office

Sometimes finding a quiet place to work is unheard of. Put together a small office inside your unit rental and see productivity rise. All you need is a desk, chair, a few filing cabinets, and some shelves to get started. Confidential business calls are also easy to manage when there are no distractions or concerns for privacy.

5. Private Retreat

Every now and then you need a place away from the day-to-day. Turn a storage unit into a private retreat complete with a reading chair and a few books. Create a home theater and watch your favorite movies while you enjoy some snacks. Just be sure to clean up food afterward to avoid critters in your new favorite place.
