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 15 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.
Other than traditional self-storage units, Space Next Door also lists climate-controlled and wine storage facilities across Singapore.
