With the sizes of homes getting smaller, and the ability to throw away still being a big problem for a lot of people, self storage solutions are becoming somewhat of a revelation. To gain extra space in a house, perhaps for an extra bedroom for a new born, or the need to have an office for work, people are now converting rather than moving. This is partly due to the recession, but also in order for people to do it themselves and achieve their gratification in some DIY work. Converting a junk room, garage or loft will inevitably mean that whatever was in that room before, now needs to go somewhere else. Furthermore, the design and style of living has now become minimalist; clean lines and no clutter. But we’re still a nation of hoarders, so your 15 year old African antique statue has to live somewhere, but it’s not going to be the skip.
