4 Ways For Small Businesses To Maximise Storage Economically
Finding room for everything in your space – especially a small workplace can be tough. That’s when creative tips such as using multifunctional furniture, vertical or horizontal space of walls, and investments in storage products come in to help make full use of your existing space. You will need to organise your workspace smartly as well, in order to make your space look bigger than it actually is.
Keep reading on to discover how you can implement different ways to switch up your workspace and maximise storage economically.
Get extra storage boxes
A disorganised or cluttered space can make it hard to find something when you need it the most. Try going for storage boxes to remove clutter and keep your things organised – and it can be as simple as using paper clamps for your documents. In this way, your office materials remain organised inside the storage boxes still.
On the other hand, you can always go for a workspace which already comes with storage facilities so you can save the trouble of searching. At Work+Store, we offer the cheapest self-storages, starting from 6 sqft to 730 sqft. There are even mini self-storage lockers which come in 2 sizes – 1m x 0.6m costing at $39 per month and 1m x 1m costing at $59 per month – suited for storing 1 or 2 big luggage or keeping smaller personal belongings. Our storage rental also comes with 24-hour accessibility and surveillance so you can keep a lookout on your workspace. We are even flexible with our rental lease terms – offering short term lease and contract transfer to other kinds of products and services within Work+Store, or our parent company LHN Group, including an extensive range making up of vending machine spots, commercial and industrial units, pop-up store location rental, and so forth.
Use wall-mounted furniture
Your choice of furniture is important in making your workspace look spacious and uncluttered. Skip the usual furniture picks such as a cupboard or wardrobe for your goods or clothing you are planning to bring into the market – instead, go for wall-mounted furniture.
Designed to appear as if it’s floating right above the ground, it is one of the solutions to tackling visual clutter. Some options include wall shelves or wall hooks that make your space visually appealing as well. Moreover, there’s no need to go shopping for new ones – you can easily make the wall-mounted furniture on your own. Instead of throwing out your old bookshelf or cupboard – make use of the shelves and fix them onto your walls.
Bring in room dividers
When you are planning to segment, or partially segment your space – such as a meeting room from the other workstations – room dividers can come in handy. There are even different styles or materials you can opt for – from glass, wood, fabric to framed cotton canvas. It’s even possible to use large bookshelves as room dividers which can also serve as extra storage space. What makes it an ideal choice for startups and small businesses is because of how inexpensive they are – alongside other benefits like easy assembling and the countless number of usage.
Besides saving cost on space-saving furniture, you can do so by picking a workspace with equipped facilities. Work+Store offers workspaces from 88 sqft onwards – furnished with basic facilities such as lighting, air conditioning and a powerpoint. We have 10 locations all over Singapore which consist of Bartley, 72 Eunos, 100 Eunos, Bukit Merah, Pasir Panjang, Aljunied, Tampines, Ang Mo Kio, Upper Thomson and Kallang. You can consider renting our Aljunied location if you’re nearby the establishment – there is an ongoing rent-free promotion right now, so you get to save up more. It is closeby to Aljunied MRT and easily accessible via PIE – making it much more convenient for employees. Reach out to us for more details. Terms and conditions apply.
Use ottomans in place of seats
Whether it’s for your break room or common room, ottomans will come in handy for sure. Besides having a sleek appearance and providing comfort – ottomans are also known for being a storage solution. Make use of ottomans to store small office items or documents that are taking up space in your drawers or on your desk. In that way, you can make room for more important office materials and documents.
Meanwhile, you can also choose a self storage to maximise your storage space. We offer the cheapest self storages in Singapore so you can store your goods and work in one place. Our workspaces and self storages also function as an ancillary office for larger businesses with industrial activities to better manage your business operations. As you share work and storage space together, you are essentially boosting goods procurement efficiency and customer service satisfaction.
Insufficient storage space can make it hard for your business to keep your things in place, grow your business or hire more staff. However, there are ways to deal with the issue, and these are a couple of methods you can start with.
