Here are some questions we hear often: What can fit in a 10 x 10 storage unit? What are the best storage units for a small apartment? How can I maximize the space in my 10×10 storage bins? What are the best storage units for small apartments? We know there’s some math involved when trying to decide which storage unit is right for you. Here’s what you should know about the 10 x 10 size as well as some answers to your questions.
What are the Best Storage Units for Small Apartments?
A 2 bedroom apartment, 1 bedroom apartment or other small apartment will be cramped if you try to keep all seasonal items and extra furniture there. Fortunately, a typical 1 bedroom apartment storage size is affordable as far as small apartment storage units go.
If you’re living in a small house (up to 2 bedrooms) or in a one or two-bedroom apartment, then our 10 X 10 unit will provide the space you need to store your items securely and safely. This 10 x 10 unit is one of the most popular storage units for small apartments. It’s short, it’s small, and there’s so much space in here that you can utilize, and we hope that this size unit is going to fit your needs.
As we do with all of our units, we recommend using our online sizing guide to determine the best size unit for you. If you’re someone who likes to hold on to belongings for sentimental reasons, you might need a larger unit than someone who only keeps the basics on hand.
What Can Fit in a 10 x 10 Storage Unit?
The 10 X 10 unit is perfect for storing everything you might have in your home, including:
- Beds, tables, sofas, and chairs
- Books and important documents
- Home décor items like rugs and lamps
- Outdoor furniture
- Holiday decorations
- Cookware and dishes
How Can I Maximize the Space When Renting 10×10 Storage Bins?
When filling 10X10 storage bins, we recommend that you start by putting the heaviest items – which are usually the things that you are the least likely to need to access regularly, in the back of the storage unit. These include beds and other large items of furniture.
The smaller items, including boxed items or things in plastic boxes that you might need to access regularly, should be stacked toward the front of the unit. It’s a good idea to label everything clearly and arrange your boxes so that you can read the labels.
If you need packing materials, including boxes and other items, you can find them with us. We have everything you need, including sofa covers, bubble wrap, and hanger boxes if you plan on storing clothes with us.
You can expect to spend as much as two hours packing items into your storage unit. As a service to our clients, we offer free use of our moving-in truck for up to seven hours. That way, you won’t need to make an extra stop to pick up a rental truck – not to mention having to return it at the end of the day.
All our Storage West storage units are air-conditioned. That means that you won’t need to worry that the heat will damage your belongings. The units are dry, well-lit, and meticulously maintained by our staff.
Each one of our storage facilities has a unique atmosphere. We like to think of them as communities. To learn more about our storage services or to reserve a unit now, please click here.
