When you think of self-storage, you may only consider the more traditional uses, such as storing your furniture and household goods while you move home or storing products and excess stock as you grow and develop your business. However, there are also many other alternative ways to use your self-storage unit at The Self Storage Company. 

Have you ever thought of transforming your self-storage unit into a personal workout space, a creative studio, or even a games room? Take a look at some of our alternative self-storage uses and book your perfect home or business storage solution today!

An Arts & Crafts Workstation

If you need a dedicated space to create, then our spacious and secure self-storage units may be the perfect solution. Whether you’re a local artist, craftsperson or maker, our larger self-storage units at The Self Storage Company can offer the space to create as well as storage for your materials, tools and equipment. 

We allow access to storage 7 days a week and can even arrange 24/7 access on request, meaning you can access your arts and crafts workstation whenever you’re feeling creative. Why not lay a sheet on the ground, set up an easel and use your self-storage unit as an artist’s studio? When you choose The Self Storage Company, you’ll benefit from a state-of-the-art security system and support from our dedicated self-storage experts, so you can be sure your masterpieces are in safe hands.

A Walk-in Wardrobe

Whether you’re a fashionista or love a ‘big coat’, you may be struggling for wardrobe space at home. If your wardrobe is fit to burst with all of your favourite outfits and special items, you may consider using one of our self-storage units as a walk-in wardrobe!  

The secure and affordable self-storage units at The Self Storage Company are ideal for storing seasonal items such as your summer holiday items during the winter months and all of your woolly jumpers and cold-weather clothes during the summer season. Transform your self-storage unit with a few clothing rails, or purchase our specialist wardrobe boxes to keep your clothes neat and crease-free. 

Our professional storage units are also ideal for entertainment companies and theatre productions that require convenient storage for stage outfits and props. 

A Personal Workout Space

If you’ve had enough of paying expensive membership fees, limited time to exercise and waiting for equipment at a busy gym, then transforming a self-storage unit into a personal workout space may be a perfect alternative use for you.

The Self Storage Company storage units offer a secure and affordable space to store any gym equipment, such as mats, weights and spin bikes and can provide you with a personal workout space or private gym, so you can focus on putting the work in and being the best you! 

Our self-storage units, ranging from 10sqft to 200sqft+, can also be transformed into a reflective space for meditating or studying yoga.

A Games Room

A Games Room is another alternative way to use your self-storage unit. Our UK self-storage facilities offer large, secure storage units that can comfortably fit a pool table, table football, ping pong or several retro arcade and pinball machines. Easy access to your storage means you can practice your trick shots or try to beat your high score whenever you like! 

Modern gamers can also create an amazing space to game, whether you play esports, action-adventure or even virtual reality games! Available light, power and super-speedy WiFi throughout the storage facility means you can transform your storage unit into the ultimate gaming experience.

An Exhibition Space

The UK is home to many different types of collectors, from people who search the web buying vintage comic books to model train enthusiasts, stamp collectors and sports memorabilia fans. If you’re running out of space at home, you may consider using a self-storage unit as an exhibition space! 

Our secure storage units will keep your prized items clean, dry and secure, so you can correctly organise your collection, benefit from the convenient, easy access and display your favourite items.
