Accessible & Affordable Self Storage for Minimalists & Maximalists Alike!

Whether you are a minimalist or a maximalist, Boylin’s Self Store has self storage solutions that are guaranteed to enable you to thrive no matter your wants, needs or lifestyle.

If you need space to keep your excess items that don’t fit in your stripped back minimalist vision or that you simply don’t have space for due to your maximalist passion for extravagance, Boylin’s Self Store is here for you!

Whether you lean towards minimalism or maximalism as a lifestyle choice, it is a reflection of our personalities and personal style.

Minimalists might just prefer the aesthetic of a minimalist home with fewer dust-gathering bits of furniture and some key pieces of statement furniture or art here and there, while maximalists are happiest when surrounded by comfy scatter cushions and children’s artwork on the fridge, set against the backdrop of an eclectic mix of rugs, throws and coffee table books.

Whichever you prefer, self storage can help you either way to create a curated home that is a safe haven and a true reflection you your wants and needs, of YOU, rather than a stressful environment filled with clutter and no storage space.

What is Minimalism?

Minimalism is a celebration of modesty, simplicity and practicality. It takes inspiration from living only with the bare essentials. When it comes to minimalist interiors, you’ll often see clean sharp lines, modest yet functional decor, and uncluttered open spaces.

Throughout the years, we have witnessed the emergence of the different types of minimalist designs including experientialism, essentialism, enoughism, and eco-minimalism. To learn more about these interesting minimalist archetypes, you can read The Essential Guide To The 5 Types Of Minimalism.

What are the Benefits of Minimalism?

  • Choosing to accumulate only the essentials often results in financial freedom. Spending less on things you don’t really need will cut your financial expenses and increase your savings.
  • A minimalist home is significantly less stressful as you are able to freely move around and enjoy your home.
  • The fewer things in our home, the fewer things there are to clean. This makes cleaning a significantly easier chore.
  • The sense of freedom that comes from minimalism is truly refreshing. You will no longer feel tied to the material possessions in your home and you’ll feel a new sense of independence.
  • Indeed, after a long day at work, coming home to a cluttered space can feel like you moved from one battleground to the next. Overflowing drawers and cabinets, and the never-ending mess can make you feel like you have little control when, in reality, it is often the opposite case. You have all the control over your space, claim that power with self storage.
  • Minimalism is good for the environment, as the less we consume and buy, the less damage we do to the environment and thus the more sustainable we become.

How can Self Storage Help You Achieve Your Minimalism Vision?

Step one towards minimalism is to distinguish what you need now from what you need in the future. It could be oversized furniture when your family or partner moves away or off-season clothes. You can also store valuable books that you don’t reach for as often or fancy crockery.

When you store these items, pack them securely, but keep them accessible. Label all your storage bins and boxes and keep an itemised list for reference. When you are at the storage unit, arrange the containers according to need. Put clothes near the entrance and the books and plates towards the back.

You can also store items that you no longer need, but haven’t figured out the right person who needs them yet. If you need the extra cash and are trying to resell your belongings online, keeping it in a storage unit can help prevent them from being damaged by accident. When these items are outside of your home, you can begin to see your new space.

When using storage units, you have to keep a minimalist mindset or else you end up accumulating more things. When you learn to ‘shop your stash’, or rotate different items regularly, you begin to buy less.

Treat your storage as an extension of your home and not an object graveyard. The right habits with your storage space mean you can live big in a small living space without compromising on any of your hobbies.

Minimising is a process. You slowly learn to live on less and break purchasing habits.

Self storage presents an opportunity so make the most out of it! Come home to a clean, tidy home filled with space and possibilities.

What is Maximalism?

Maximalism is set to be the next big home decor trend!

If there’s one thing to know about maximalism, it’s that more is more. It in its entirety, this design concept rejects simplicity and encourages individuals to be bold, expressive, and creative. With maximalism, you design a room layer by layer thoughtfully.

Comfort is key in the maximalist style and allows for objects of convenience and practicality to be easily accessible and ever present.

It is also ever changing and while it can be highly styled, a maximalist room can be dynamic and flexible. Maximalist style embraces colour, texture and pattern, and rather than hiding possessions away, they’re proudly on show, and there to be touched and used. With maximalism, each item is not just a possession, they are treasures.

To achieve the maximalist look, dig some of your curios, pictures and souvenirs out of storage – but only ones that bring back happy memories or are sentimental in some other way. Displaying these with care whilst opting for stripes, patterns and even polka dots in your decor scheme will achieve the maximalist design in no time.

How can Self Storage enable Your Maximalist Lifestyle to Grow & Thrive?

Though maximalism is a really fun design concept it can sometimes lead to your home becoming to overcrowded and cramped, leaving you less space to carry out the practical necessity’s.

That’s where self storage comes in handy. Curate your maximalist style constantly as you aquire new belongings and decide which items can stay out, loud and proud for now and which need to be safely stored until their time comes to shine in your home again.
