Turn Your Self Storage Into a Home For Your Hobbies


Are you looking for a new hobby like painting but don't have the space? Do you want to learn how to play an instrument but are worried neighbors will complain? A self storage unit can give you the space, time, and opportunity to discover the hobby that's right for you.

We here at CitiWide Self Storage have compiled a list of reasons why a storage unit may be an ideal home away from home for you and your new hobbies.

Your Space. Your Rules.

One of the perks of renting a storage space is, well, that it’s a storage space. There’s no rule that states you can’t store other belongings there. With a self storage unit you can develop new skills and keep your home clutter-free. It’s a win-win!

More For Less

Space costs money. And with art studios costing almost as much as an actual studio apartment, a self storage unit is an excellent alternative. When it comes to painting, all you need to do is bring your gear and you’re all set. If you’re planning to create a rehearsal space to practice the guitar you just purchased, be sure to choose a storage unit with electrical outlets for your equipment, line the walls with some noise-canceling panels, and let the music begin.

Hobby + Business

If you can pursue your passion with a self storage unit, why not an alternative revenue stream? With more people starting online businesses than ever before, many self storage facilities, including CitiWide Self Storage, have customized self storage units outfitted with electrical outlets and shelving so you can move in and get to work immediately.

Go Big, or Small

Whether it’s increased inventory for your small business or more art equipment, your storage space can grow as you do. By choosing a self storage unit, you can always upgrade to a larger unit size, or even go smaller if you discover you simply don’t need as much space as you originally thought.
