Utilizing Self-Storage for Your Flat
In a place like Hong Kong flats are compact and careful organization and a minimalist lifestyle is very important. Self-storage spaces can help with maintaining a comfortable living space while allowing you to hold onto the objects you value. Below are some simple tips to help you utilize storage to keep important items available when you need them and out of the way when you don't. Just be sure to continue washing your hands and wearing a mask when going out, and to use a hands-free tool to access your storage while following these tips!
Note Items You Use Regularly at Home
Before deciding what items to put away in self-storage, spend a few days around your house making note of how often you use different objects. You'll quickly determine some items that don't get used very often and others are used daily. Storing those seldom-used objects in your unit or storage locker is the fastest way to clear out space in your flat and make your living space more comfortable.
Store Less Popular Objects
Now that you have a list of the items that you need around at all times, you know what other items you have that you don't need in your flat itself. Start packing up these items into neat and labeled boxes and containers and put them away in your mini storage space. Keep packing away your less popular items until your flat is cleared out and more comfortable to be in.
Keep Extra Furniture in Storage
Another excellent use of storage space is for housing additional furniture for guests that you don't use yourself. For instance, an extra mattress could easily be stored and taken out for visiting guests. Just be careful to keep your furniture in a weather-tight storage unit and to avoid placing heavy boxes on delicate furniture items to keep them in good condition over time. It's also important to make sure you have easy access to your storage so you can move larger items in and out effectively. Otherwise, it's best to avoid keeping furniture in your unit.
Pack up Seasonal Items
There are lots of decorations, tools, and other special items that only get used during one part of the year. Pack these things into your storage locker when you don't need them and save yourself all that space. By using a storage unit in this way you'll clear out all your home's storage closets and shelves for those more frequently used items to go.
Carefully Organize and Inventory Your Stored Items
While you are packing up your storage unit you must take care to keep everything organized and neat. Put your valuables into waterproof containers and label them so you can easily see what's inside. Also, take the time to create an inventory that explains where all your objects are so you can easily access them.
Follow these simple tips to make your flat feel more open and inviting in a short period of time. Self-storage units can make a huge difference in a small Hong Kong flat, and they're reasonably priced enough to be a worthwhile investment versus trying to find a larger flat to live in.Booking Now
