“I can use it for what now?!” – Beyond’s 5 Alternative Uses for the Humble Self-Storage Container

While the purpose of a self-storage container might seem pretty self-explanatory, there are so many other ways that you can make use of what is essentially an additional space to call your own. We at Beyond Storage have put together a list of some of the most interesting and creative alternative uses for self-storage containers – but don’t let your imagination stop at number 5!

 

1. Gym

Not everyone is able to establish a home gym. Give your chest, triceps, back and biceps the love they deserve and create your perfect gym in a self-storage container. Whether it’s space or a bit of peace and quiet you’re lacking, the units have both in abundance!

Many come packed with useful features. Our containers are accessible from 6am to 9pm 7 days a week and the site is secured by a fingerprint scanning system. Not only can you use your gym as and when it suits you, but expensive equipment is kept safe and secure.

The only downside is you’ll be without an excuse to skip leg day!

2. Photography or art studio

Storage Photography Studio

Self-storage containers are blank canvases of four walls and endless possibilities, making them ideal for photography and art studios. You’ll have absolute control over the conditions and layout of the space to ensure it’s the perfect conductor of creativity.

You could install backdrops, create the ideal lighting setup, store photography props and artworks, and curate a segregated, flexible space that’s all your own.


3. Office

Begin to establish the work-life balance we all strive for in an office space that works for you. 

Working from a storage-unit-turned-office has loads of benefits over the at-home alternative. There are no interruptions or distractions, everything you need is kept securely in one place and you’re able to switch-off from work at the end of the day. 

Ours units have WiFi, are insulated and have a dehumidifier as standard, making them as comfortable a space to work from as any. 

Remind yourself of the true meaning of home time!

4. Hobby space

A self-storage container is the perfect vessel to dedicate to the things that bring you joy – whatever they might be.

Store your antiques, curate a display of collectibles or merchandise or install your full gaming setup all in one secure place.

The only limit is the unit size required for your equipment, memorabilia or collectibles – current or aspiring!


5. Cosy meet-up space

If you’re anything like us at Beyond Storage, you’ll appreciate the beauty of a good cuppa and chinwag.

Kit your unit out with all the comforts you’d expect from a cosy living room or your favourite quaint coffee shop for the perfect space to touch base with your nearest and dearest.

 

Whatever you envisage using a self-storage container for, we’d love to hear about it! Visit our website for more information about our units or get in touch with us directly.
