Many Kamloops apartment residents face space dilemmas and a lack of self-storage
. It's the reality of living in a small space. There are entire magazines and websites devoted to maximizing small spaces — providing tips for making your apartment more livable and more functional. One big problem for small spaces is the spill-over effect. A room, often a spare bedroom or small office becomes a catch-all for eyesores you don't want in your main living space — particularly if your apartment storage is minimal or non-existent. Before you know it, these spaces become cluttered dumping grounds for seldom-used exercise equipment, boxes, old computer equipment, musical instruments, books, magazines, Christmas decorations and more.
It's difficult to prevent spill over in a small apartment and the longer you live in your space, typically the worse it gets. If you do have apartment storage, you may be tempted to jam it to the rafters, but, before you do, consider these facts about apartment self storage.
