Storage spaces in Singapore
We all dream of living in that Pinterest-worthy, Airbnb-worthy house, filled with pretty furniture and not a shred clutter to ruin the aesthetic. And we do try to achieve that, with storage hacks, space-saving furniture and more. But given that most of us face the task of storing an entire lifetime’s worth of belongings within 1,300 sqft or less, it’s not easy to prettify the space without decluttering.
If you can’t bear to toss out your beloved belongings Marie Kondo-style, here are 13 storage spaces in Singapore to consider. These out-of-home storage options come in various sizes, high security and even valet services to help you “hide” the old but valuable whilst hitting all your #homegoals.
P.S. For most of these facilities, the longer you store your items, the lower the rates.
1. BEAM Smarter Storage – storage prices by box, item or space
There’s a space for all your bits, bobs and oddly-shaped items at BEAM Smarter Storage, which offers flexible price structures so you can pick the one that best fits your needs.

Go with their price by boxes if you’ve got smaller items like documents, by item for something oddly-shaped like a bicycle, or by square foot space if you’ve got chunky stuff like furniture to put away.
There’s no need to head down to their facility either as they offer a valet – a.k.a. delivery – service. Pick-up is free while deliveries to your house are priced at $16 per van-load.
Good for: People with fewer, but larger items to store.
Rates: From $4/month for a box | $12/month for odd-sized items | from $55/month for a 15 sqft space.
