Creative Storage Ideas For Your Small Home

Recently, there has been a steady rise in the human population, especially in cities. As a result of this, the surge in demand for houses has also climbed. Hence, now builders have started constructing multi-storey buildings with many studio apartments and 1BHKs. 

When you move into these apartments, you start wondering how you will place all the household stuff properly without making the room look cramped. As per your needs, sometimes it becomes tough to get ample storage space.  

You have to come up with clever ideas for finding spaces to tackle this difficulty. Below are some creative storage ideas for a small home that will help you use every nook and corner of your house.  

Storage Ideas For Your Small Home

1. Vertical Storage Space 

The best way to use space is by making Vertical Storage. Built shelves and cabinets right up to the roof. As most items get stored off the ground, the below area becomes open and compact-free. These storage ideas are more useful in the kitchen, where utensils and cutlery can be stacked. 

2. Add A Loft 

A loft built into your small house can either become an attic, a workspace or a bedroom. It makes the lower floor less messed up and more spacious. You can shift most of your furniture like a cot, wardrobe, desk or cabinets in the loft. 

3. Hidden Storage 

You can make several hidden storage spaces where you can keep your valuable items safe from theft. 

I.Under The Stairs 

Stairs that lead to the loft can be transformed into cabinets and drawers. You can store many items in it, such as books, decorative items, kitchen cabinets, mop cabinets, laundry cabinets and many more. 

II.Under The Bed 

As the size of the house is small, the bed usually takes up most of the space. Hidden drawers in the bed will allow for storing mattresses, pillows, blankets, curtains and furniture covers. 

III.Under Flooring Storage  

Trap doors are best when you want to keep your valuables. Small foldable teapoys, chairs, books, lights, etc can also be stored.   

4. Outdoor storage 

If you are staying in a small cabin or cottage, the front or back door stairs could be used as storing area. Items like tools, foldable chairs and tables can be placed in these spaces. 

5. Built-In Fittings 

Built-in fittings like dining tables, kitchen cabinets, and rolling pantries can help place electronic appliances, spices and other food ingredients.   

6. Multi-Purpose Furniture 

Multi-purpose furniture often saves space and can make small houses look airy. Sofa-cum beds, storage under the sofa, desk turned dining tables are many such examples. 

7. Buy What Is Necessary 

We often tend to buy those items that we hardly ever use. These items eat up the extra space, making your house look messy. Purchase only those items that are necessary. Extra or unused furniture, appliances, and other items can be stored in a self-storage unit where they can remain safe. It will help in making your house look roomier.

You can keep various things, from books to electronic applications and vehicles, in them. 

Check out self-storage facilities close to your house and choose the one that offers top-class facilities. The type of storage that self-storage facilities have is either Short Term or Long Term.

Long-Term Storage is when items are kept for more than three months. Items remain in one place for months or years.   

The Difference Between Short Term Storage and Long Term Storage

1. Storage Period

2. Reasons For Storing 

Items are stored for a shorter period in a storage unit when you are either shifting to a new house, making some necessary renovations to it or when you are on vacation. Long-term storage is when the items stored are unwanted or rarely used. Seasonal items are those items that are stored for a long period.  

3. Type of Storage Unit 

As per the items, duration, and budget, a suitable storage unit is hired. If one is opting for short-term storage, you can either hire a standard storage unit or a climate-controlled unit, as items are placed only for a couple of months.

4. Cost 

The cost of any storage units depends on their size and storing period. Short-Term Storage is less expensive, and many can afford it. Long-Term Storage is a bit costlier as the time duration is more. 

5. Preparation Time 

Be it short-term or long-term, planning each step is vital. Dust off and wipe all the items before placing them inside the storage room. Electronic appliances, large furniture and fragile items must be carefully wrapped with cushions and corner protectors and packed.   

Avoid overfilling the boxes. For long-term storage, do not pack items in plastic bags. Vacuum seal the bags in which they are wrapped. Labelling each box will allow us to know about the contents kept inside it.  

6. Ideal For? 

Short-Term Storage items are an ideal option when shifting to a new house or renovating the house. Long-Term Storage is best when items are seasonally used or unwanted when you shift to a new country.

Steps On Storing Photographs In A Self-Storage Unit


Photographs are not just mere fragments of paper. They are those special memories captured in a frame you treasure the most in your life. They have an immense value that makes them unique and irreplaceable.

Even though we live in a digitized world, photographs give us the joy that digital ones can never give. They make us nostalgic and work like a time machine, taking us back in time to those lovely moments. 

These pieces of memories need to be stored in a protected place as they get easily damaged. Severe temperature changes, moisture, and sunlight decay them. Sometimes, due to lack of home space, we stack them up on one another without proper care. Ultimately, it creates cracks and destroys them. Hence, they must be stored in a storage unit to safeguard against all the above elements. 

Steps To Store Photographs In A Self-Storage Unit

1. Handle With Care 

Photographs are sensitive items, and hence they must handle with utmost care. Before touching them, you should make sure your hands are not wet. When moisture comes in contact with the photographs, it creates cracks on them and can even make them peel. It allows the growth of moss, and mildew on their surfaces, thus completely ruining them.  

2. Don't Forget To Keep Digital Copies 

It is essential to store digital copies of your photographs. In this way, even if the original ones are ruined or lost, the digital ones work as a backup that will help in keeping the memories safe. HD quality copies will preserve the originality of the photos. You can store them on a USB or in a file.  

3. Organize But Don't Stack Them Over 

When photographs are organized systematically, it will make the search in the future easy. They must be assorted, as per the groups - colour, size, or year-wise. They shouldn't be kept in direct contact with each other. 

Keep tape, glue & rubber bands away from the photos as they may stick the photos together and spoil their prints. Don't forget to separate the bad photos from the good ones.  

4. Get Good Quality Of Albums & Storage Boxes 

Purchase albums that are made of acid-free materials. These albums must have sheet protectors that will keep the photographs safe as they will shield them against dust, light, moisture, or pests. A single photo must be placed on one sheet. Avoid overfilling photographs as it may break the cover and even tear them. 

5. Hiring A Climate-Controlled Self-Storage Unit 

As photos are susceptible items, temperature fluctuations, dust, pets, and moisture have severe impacts on them. These factors can decay and destroy the evidence of your beautiful memories. To preserve them, they must be stored in a storage unit that is equipped with a climate-control system. This unit will seal the room, barring entry of any dust or pests. A standard temperature is maintained in the room, keeping moisture away from all the items.

Essential Tips On Storing Items For A Long Period


Self-Storage facilities offer stress-busting solutions for storing your essential items. They offer contracts to their clients either for the short or the long term. In the short-term contract, the duration for which the items are stored is less than 12 months, whereas, in the long-term, it is more than one year.  

To store the items for long-term storage in a self-storage facility, the clients may have numerous reasons. Maybe they are going for a long vacation or moving to another city or country or the items they want to store are unwanted or hardly used.  

Before storing the items for a long period, there are certain crucial steps that one has to follow. From choosing the right storage to packing and labelling the things, one has to adhere to them carefully.  

1. What To Store? 

The foremost step you have to take is to decide what items will go into the storage unit. Then, according to your needs or usage, make a list of these items. The listing process will minimize the chances of missing any object. It is preferable not to hold on to things having no use or value for you. It would be better to sell or donate them, or else they might eat up the space of your storage unit.  

2. Choose The Best Storage Facility 

After making a list of the items, find out how many self-storage facilities are present that can be accessed easily. Then, as per the items, estimate the size of the storage unit you will require to fit all your things and which facilities have this unit size. Compare their prices, services offered, and contract conditions. As per your need and the budget, select the best facility. 

3. Hire A Climate-Controlled Unit 

For long-term storage, hire a climate-controlled unit to keep your items safe and damage-free. They are completely sealed and air-conditioned. It helps in maintaining the air quality clean and fresh by preventing the entry of moisture and maintaining a standard temperature inside the unit. Thus the items remain unaffected by the frequent changes in the outside climate.   

4. Cleaning Before Storing 

All the items should be well-cleaned before storing them. Electronics must be scrubbed and cleaned with the solution of vinegar and baking soda. Wash the furniture to remove all dirt and then polish them to keep any mould or pests away from them.  

5. Packing And Label! 

Buy the right sizes of boxes or containers to put in all the items. Cloth blankets, bubble wraps, cushions, and thermocol absorb any shock from the fall and protect all the items like electronics, books,  furniture, etc. Label these boxes to know what items are kept in which boxes.  

6. Insurance Cover, A Must! 

Getting insurance for the items will cover any damages that may occur during transit or storage period. Check if the storage facility is offering insurance cover. 

7. Autopay The Rent  

Make sure to keep the payment of rent on autopay. Every month the amount will automatically get deducted.

Why Should You Choose To Rent A Climate-Controlled Storage Unit?


We hire the best self-storage facility with all the latest security features as all the stuff we choose to store in this rented unit is valuable to us. These items include:  

a.Electronic Applications,  







h.Collection Set, 



k.Documents, etc.  

The above items demand a dry and safe storage area. Standard storage units fail to save these items from frequent shifts in the climate. Hence, most rentees prefer hiring a Climate-Control Self-Storage unit rather than a regular one.  

Unlike standard storage units, a Climate-Control Self-Storage unit helps keeps the items unaffected by regular climatic changes in the environment. It is due to its air-conditioning and heat-control system. 

The reasons listed below explain why a Climate-Controlled Storage Unit must be chosen for storing your valuable & memorable items

1. Safeguards Against Severe Temperature Changes 

During summer at some locations, the temperature can go up to extreme levels, while during winter, it can fall drastically. Due to these severe changes, certain items like wood, electronic appliances, and equipment can get damaged as they are delicate. A climate-controlled storage unit keeps the temperature of the room at a standard level where the items remain safe from any harm. 

2. Blocks Away Humidity 

During monsoon, extreme humidity is present in the air. It has a harsh reaction on wooden, electronic, and metal items. Due to moisture, wooden items swell and crack, allowing the growth of moss and mildew on them. On the other hand, metal items become rusty, and electronics fail to run. When the temperature is under control, all the humidity is absorbed, keeping the air dry and cool. 

3. Shields From Dust And Debris 

Rain, snow, and dust hamper the quality of the items when the storage room is not closed.  But the Climate-Controlled Units are fully packed, unlike the open storage area. The windows, roof, and door are securely sealed. Therefore, this debris cannot enter these units and deteriorate your stuff. 

4. Prohibits Entry of Pest And Rodents 

Pests and rodents are the main reasons that can destroy your valuable items. They chew and spoil the items of wood, cloth, and wires, making them irreparable. As these units are securely shut and the vents are covered with nets, there is no space or hole through which these pests can enter. 

5. Better Air Quality 

These self-storage units have well-ventilated systems. These vents keep circulating fresh air into the storage unit that does not allow foul odour to stay in the room. The climate-controlled self-storage facility has a centralized air-conditioned system that keeps its environment moisture free and chilled. 

6. Gives The Rentee Peace Of Mind 

A climate-controlled self-storage facility maintains the temperature, moisture, and air quality in check and helps keep the items protected. After hiring a climate-controlled self-storage facility, the rentees get stress-free and calm. They have to worry less about their storage items as they know these items are stored where they will not be damaged and remain safe.

What Are The Items Forbidden From Storing In A Self Storage Unit?

Hiring a self-storage unit always comes in handy when you have to shift, renovate, or make more space in your house. You can stockpile all your essential or unwanted items in this unit at a reasonable rate for different timeframes. Their various attributes, like climate controlling options, security facilities, and other features, aid in keeping your items safe and secured.  

These units come in different sizes that can store all kinds of products. But, certain items are not allowed for storage in these units. Self-Storage Companies have a list of rules and regulations that specify the objects forbidden from storing

The list of items and the reason for their prohibition are mentioned below: 

1. Perishable Items 

Perishable items like food attract various pests and rodents. Their shelf-life is less, and they cannot be stored for a longer period. Keeping them in a storage unit will spoil them and spread foul odour around the unit. 

Some storage facilities do allow the storage of canned food, as they contain preservatives. Make sure you check up with the facility whose services you are planning to hire. 

2. Hazardous Articles  

Hazardous articles like chemicals, paints, oil, firecrackers, acid, bleach, fertilizers and radioactive materials are toxic and flammable.

Illegal objects like stolen items, drugs, arms, and ammunition are barred from storing in a self-storage unit. Hoarding stolen items can bring the storage companies into legal trouble as they can be sued, and punished for this crime.  

Arms and ammunitions can turn fatal as items like bombs or hand grenades can suddenly go off, thus blowing up the whole storage facility. 

4. Dangerous Equipment  

Some construction items and pharmaceutical and radioactive types of equipment are prohibited from storing in the self-storage units. Though these units are well ventilated, there are chances they may get ruined or may start oozing toxic chemicals. 

5. Plants and Animals 

Plants, animals, or humans are strictly banned in a storage unit by the self-storage company. These units are not safe for living objects, and the situation can turn fatal for them.  

6. Unregistered Vehicles 

Vehicles that are unregistered or uninsured, are not allowed as the companies need proof of registration from the owner. Without proper documents, companies don't agree to give consent to store vehicles.  

7. Fur Clothes 

Fur clothes are susceptible to high temperatures and light. They need a proper environment to be stored. Most storage companies refrain from allowing fur clothes for storage. 

8. Money  

The right place to keep money is a bank. The self-storage facility is not the right place to hoard them. Only a bank can offer better security than any self-storage unit.  

*The Box* 

The Box is a storage facility that has all types of sophisticated features in its units. Various items can be stored in their units at affordable lease rent. We have our own rules and regulations regarding the storage of items. Before renting a unit, do not forget to read them to make yourself aware.

Everything About Storing Patio Furniture


During family or friends' get-togethers, most time is spent in the patio area. Outdoor lounging with them offers the utmost comfort and joy. Though patio furniture is made for outdoor requirements, as soon as, monsoons and winters arrive, they need to be stored properly.   

During monsoons and winter, the patio furniture made of plastic, metal, or plastic can get damaged. Even during hot summer, the sunlight can fade off their colouring. 

To increase their shelf life and protect them from any damage, furniture needs to be stored in a dry area, either in the attic, a basement, or a self-storage facility. Another reason for storing them is when you are shifting to a new house

Types of Patio Furniture and ways of storing them securely. 

1. Cushioned Furniture 

Cushioned furniture is the most vulnerable type of furniture. They easily get damaged during the monsoon and winter seasons. The moisture, humidity, and snow allow the growth of mould and mildew on these cushions, spoiling the cotton materials inside them.  

➢ Cleaning & Storing 

These cushions and the fabrics used should be regularly clean with bleach. For storing, you can either cover them with plastic sheets or can be stored in cardboard or plastic boxes. Storing in boxes is better as they help in preventing any moisture from entering and ruining the materials. 

2. Wooden Furniture 

Due to continuous rainfall, wooden furniture can absorb moisture which will make them crack, paving way for the growth of fungus. During winters, the chilly climate can freeze the woods and fracture them within. 

➢ Cleaning & Storing 

Before storing, they should be first mildly washed with bleach and water. Once they are dry, paint them and apply a sealant of wax or any other water repellent to shield them against the moisture. 

3. Metal Furniture 

Metal Furniture can become rusty the moment it comes in contact with moisture from snow and rainfall. This will weaken them and break them away. 

➢ Cleaning & Storing 

They should be washed and dried. Then, they should be treated with an anti-rusting solution and then repainted and waxed before storing. 

4. Plastic Furniture 

Plastic may not absorb moisture but becomes brittle during winters and can break. 

➢ Cleaning & Storing 

Thoroughly wash them with detergent and keep them dry. Only then, put them for storage. 

5. Umbrellas 

Patio Umbrellas are the most sensitive type of furniture. 

➢ Cleaning & Storing 

First, make sure all the bugs and dust are cleaned. Then, scrub and wash them with mild detergent and warm water. Put it for drying. Do oiling of the handle, switches, and locks of the umbrella and wrap them before storing. 

6. Outdoor Swings 

Outdoor Swings are the most loved furniture. But they need to be properly looked after. 

➢ Cleaning & Storing 

They must be dusted off from cobwebs and dirt. Wash them with water, and dry them completely. Cover them with huge sheets to protect them from moisture. 

7. Movable FirePits 

Movable Firepits must be disconnected from propane tanks before cleaning.

Things One Should Know Regarding Warehousing

In any business, Supply Chain plays a major role in running it. Supply Chain Management is to supervise the string-like processes in which expertise, materials and information are used to supply the goods to the customers. Warehousing is a part of Supply Chain Management. 

Warehousing means securely storing the goods of the company in a cool and dry place. It is about maintaining an inventory where raw materials are stored after purchasing from the supplier and finished goods are stored before being distributed to the retail markets.   

● Difference Between A Warehouse and A Distribution Centre 

People always use Warehouse and Distribution Centre words as synonyms which is outrightly wrong. A Warehouse is a storage structure where raw materials and finished goods are only stored whereas, a Distribution Centre is a facility where these goods are systematically picked, packed and shipped. 
● Components Of A Warehouse 
Numerous components have to be planned for better and more effective management of inventory and movement of goods within and outside the warehouse. 
1. Planning The Size Of The Warehouse 
As warehouses store heavy items like machines or bulky goods, they must be spacious enough to allow free movement of goods. Proper planning has to be done to make maximum use of the space. 
2. Temperature Regulated 
The warehouse must have suitable facilities as per the goods stored. The warehouse must be airy and dry to avoid any foul smell.  If the warehouse is storing food items, then it must be furnished with a temperature-controlled system.  
3. Accepting Shipments 
Once, the shipment of goods arrives, the working staff accept these shipments and makes necessary entries.  
4. Careful Storage  
The warehouse storage is divided into different sections for raw materials, semi-finished goods and finished goods. The arrived goods are carefully stored as per their categories. 
5. Efficient Organization 
The inventory of the warehouse must be organized and assorted systematically. As and when new shipments arrive, the staff has to make sure enough space is available to store them. 
6. Keep a Record Of The Inventory 
The inventory of the shipments that arrived and departed must be tracked and recorded. A proper Inventory System must be managed well which will help in knowing if any changes are required.  
7. The Departure of The Shipments 
This is the last function. Items that are leaving the warehouse must be packed shipped and recorded. 

● Importance Of A Warehouse 

1. Bulky Storage 

Be it eCommerce or physical retail business, have to store the goods in bulk quantity. It helps in meeting the everchanging demands of the customers as and when required. 
2. Can Be Outsourced 
A business can either have its Warehouse or can outsource this service from a third party. As a result, a team of professionals handle this process effectively and the cost of warehousing gets reduced. 

3. Stored At Tactical Locations  
The warehouse must be located at those points in different nations that will make the delivery of goods to the customers quick and easy. It also reduces transportation costs.
