How to use storage space most effectively: Here are our tips and tricks to try to maximize your storage space!

Plan ahead

Planning ahead is the first step to perfectly organizing your storage unit. It is very important to divide the items by size and sort them into groups. The second step is to think about how often you need to use a particular item. That depends on your personal needs. It is important to create clarity here.

Label all boxes clearly

When it comes to boxes and finding things in your storage box, labeling is very important. It’s very frustrating not being able to find a specific item and having to dig through all the boxes. It helps a lot and saves a lot of time and effort when things are clearly labeled.

Break down larger items

When you take apart larger items, you can pack them more effectively and they won’t take up as much space. Keep all pieces of furniture close together to avoid losing metal corners, connectors, bolts, or other important parts. It is best to store the smallest parts such as screws etc. in a plastic bag, which you label and attach to the piece of furniture.

Protect sensitive items

Sensitive items can also be stored well. However, the easiest way is to wrap them in bubble wrap, cloths or other soft items and pack them in boxes. This way you can store them safely without causing any damage.

Blankets and covers

For larger pieces of furniture such as sofas, tables or chairs, using blankets, covers and covers to cover the items is a good idea to protect them from scratches, moisture and other possible damage.

Stack intelligently

Smart stacking usually means starting with the heavy, large pieces of furniture first and then storing the smaller items. Depending on how often you need access to your items, it may be an advantage to have them closer to the front. to be stacked at the back. When stacking it is therefore important to pay attention to functionality.


Keep access routes clear and a space at the back of the storage room so you can access these items if necessary.
