How self storage can support your micro-living lifestyle

In today’s world, many people are choosing to live in smaller spaces to reduce their living costs as well as their carbon footprint. While living in a smaller space can be liberating, it can also present unique challenges, like limited storage space. 

Self-storage can be a valuable solution for those adopting a micro-living lifestyle and here’s why: 

Maximising living space

The biggest benefit of self storage for those living a micro-living lifestyle is the ability to maximise their living space. Storing infrequently used or seasonal items in a storage unit will create more space in your home for the items that you use every day. This can help reduce clutter and create a more comfortable living environment.

Keeping items secure

Self storage units offer a secure and safe place to store your belongings. Most self storage facilities have security measures in place to keep your items safe. This can give you peace of mind knowing that your valuable items are protected.

Organising your belongings

Living in a smaller space means using your space efficiently. By storing items that are not frequently used, you can organise your belongings and make the most of the space that you do have. This can help make your living space more functional and enjoyable.


Self storage offers a level of flexibility that can be especially beneficial for those living a micro-living lifestyle. You can choose the size of the unit you need and the duration of your rental. 


Most self storage facilities offer access to your unit seven days a week, allowing you to retrieve or store your items at any time. This can be especially helpful for those who work long hours or have a busy schedule, as you can access your unit on your own schedule.
