household items for storage


Most of us think that storage rentals in Singapore are just for people who need a place to keep their belongings temporarily while they are moving to a new house or office. However, the purpose of a storage warehouse is more than just that. It’s also helpful for decluttering a home.

If you are a sentimental person, then chances are that it is difficult for you to get rid of your belongings. Even though they may create a messy clutter in your house, it is not easy to part with them as they hold certain dear memories with them. Fortunately, you don’t have to throw them away if you want to free up some space at your home. You can store them in a self-storage unit!


Here are some of the household items to should be put up for storage:


  • Furniture
    Of course, furniture is on top of the list because it’s the bulkiest among all household items. There are several reasons for keeping furniture in a storage unit, and one is home refurbishments. You might have decided to change the interior because it is getting old and boring, so normally you have to get rid of some pieces of furniture before you start refurbishing.

    However, it would be a waste to just dump them, especially if they are still functional. So, consider renting self-storage space in Singapore, and put them in there. You can still use them for the next residential property that you are planning to buy in the future. Just make sure to store them properly by disassembling and cleaning them first.


  • Collectables
    Most of us like to collect things. Either because it’s a fulfilling hobby that we have always been so passionate about, or simply because it’s an interesting souvenir from our overseas adventure. However, it is not a good idea to keep them at home, especially if you live in a small apartment.

    Whether these are paintings, books or figurines, it’s best to keep them in a storage warehouse in Singapore. You can place them there as long as you want, and retrieve them anytime if you opt for long-term storage. Also, consider choosing a temperature-controlled unit to keep these collectables in mint condition.


  • Memorabilia
    Photo albums, medals, trophies, and even letters— these are the items that are hard to let go of even though we don’t use them every day. Each item is full of memories, and it’s like an important part of our lives. However, it’s difficult to find a place in the house to store all these memorabilia. So, you may want to consider renting a self-storage unit. It’s a safe place for your belongings as storage facilities have tight security systems.


  • Seasonal Clothes & Travel Essentials
    Singapore has a tropical climate. Even though it’s supposed to be cool during the wet season, for some reason, most of the time it’s still hot and humid. Thus, it wouldn’t be appropriate to keep wearing sweaters. You probably purchased them when you had an overseas holiday before, and it’s nice and chilly there. Since these are bulky clothes, they will take up most of the space of your closet. Store them in a self-storage space instead to make room for your everyday clothes. Also, make sure to include the large luggage and suitcases that you always use during your holiday trips! These are too large to keep inside the bedroom especially with HDB units getting smaller and smaller these days!


  • Old Children Toys
    Do you have toys left behind by your children? If they are too old already to play with these toys, then you may want to store it in a self-storage space temporarily or even considering selling them.  You could use them again in case you and your spouse are expecting another child! Besides, these toys possess great sentimental value, so wouldn’t it be a waste to throw them away?


  • Files and Documents
    You might be a business owner who has been keeping files and documents at home. Eventually, they might start to pile up on your desk if you don’t have any shelves or proper management systems. Even though organising them on a shelf would be a good idea, the extra shelves would take up some space in the room. A plausible solution would be investing in personal storage in Singapore. Some storage companies units with password-protected locks to provide more security for any sensitive files and documents.


It’s nice to live in a clutter-free home because it feels less stressful. So, move some of the stuff that you rarely use at a self-storage space. Here at Mandarin Self Storage, we provide different storage solutions for homeowners like you.
