At Storage West, one of our smaller storage unit measures five feet by five feet. We sometimes refer to it as our “walk-in closet” because it’s about the same size as a closet and can be used for similar purposes. You will see this low-cost option listed as a 5 x 5 storage unit.
Many of the people who rent a 5 X 5 storage unit do so because they’ve downsized from a house to a condo or because they simply don’t want to use their home’s limited storage space for seasonal items and other things that they use only occasionally. They want a low-cost way to maintain their lifestyle without having a cluttered home.
Others who rent this size space are working from home. They want to keep the clutter down in their living space, and they want to stay organized and ready for business opportunities. The low-cost option makes this idea especially attractive. Plus, some business entrepreneurs may be able to list the cost of storage as an item for tax purposes. It is always worth a conversation with your accountant to learn if this applies to your business.
What Can You Keep in a 5 × 5 Storage Unit?
Our 5 X 5 unit is a favorite spot for many different things. Here are some examples:
- Holiday decorations, including Christmas lights, artificial Christmas trees, Halloween décor, Thanksgiving tablecloths, and more
- Seasonal clothing and bedding, including sweaters, warm comforters, and coats
- Important documents, including legal contracts
- Family photographs and photo albums
This space is ideal for storing boxes and plastic bins that can be stacked. We always remind our clients to use their storage unit’s vertical space, too, which is why stacking is ideal for a unit this small. The key is to use sturdy containers and stack the heaviest items on the bottom.
This unit is too small to be a good place to store most furniture or bulky items. If you want to store furniture, you’ll appreciate the generous 100 square foot storage of a 10 x 10 unit.

- Boxes of their products
