Self Storage for Apartment Living
As cities are becoming more crowded and people are living closer together, self storage has become an even more popular option for apartment living. Wollongong has a population of almost 300,000 as of 2016 and is on the rise, meaning a higher demand for housing and increase of people living in apartments. Downsizing to a smaller apartment sometimes means becoming more minimal in your belongings, but doesn’t mean you always have to miss out on the things you love. Here’s why using a storage unit could transform a small living space and make the best of your apartment lifestyle.
1. Self Storage is Great for Seasonal Storage
Why let your snow gear take up room in your apartment when the Australian summer is blasting 40 degree days? The surf boards that are awkward and big don’t need to be taking up space in an already condensed living situation. Keep your apartment as a living space and utilize a storage unit as an external cupboard that stores the Christmas decorations, camping gear or even a surprise birthday present. At Permian Self Storage we have a range of small units that can hold from a couple of boxes up to a large walk in wardrobe size and bigger depending on your needs.
2. Self Storage Allows for Better Organisation
Having the extra space to see and organise your belongings allows you to better manage how you live life. It is proven that clutter can negatively effect your life and have serious impacts on your mental health through increased stress, unhealthy eating and loss of productivity (ABC NEWS). Apartment living already confines you to less space so it’s best to be proactive in your organisation. Divide your wardrobe, sort and store documents and be creative in how you use your space. Come talk to the team at Permian Self Storage and we can help you choose the space that suits you best.
3. Self Storage for Retirees
As you get older there isn’t a need for a big house anymore with many retirees choose to downsize their living situation and move into an apartment instead. A self storage unit is great for retirees living in apartments as it gives them a space to keep the sentimental belongings they’ve collected over the years and the things they need once in a while. For example, at Permian Self Storage some of our older customers keep their grandchildren’s toys and beds for when they come visit, or even utilize our parking spots for their caravan. Our facility is only 5 minutes from Wollongong CBD and makes for a great option for retirees needing a solution to the lack of storage in apartments.
4. Self Storage While Moving
A storage unit is also great whist you’re in between moves and possibly looking at downsizing to an apartment. It’s a great option if you still have items that you still need to get rid of, sell or sort through such as excess furniture and household items. At Permian we also have a truck that is free to use when moving in to our units and trailers that are free to use at any time. This allows the transition of moving and downsizing to apartment living much easier and give you time and the space you need in the rush and stresses of moving.
