When it comes to pursuing a passion of yours, you may be dismayed by the lack of space you currently have available at home.

Or you may have space, but instead, you need a quieter location to master your work or freelance projects. Plus, when it comes to organising your space to accommodate the tools you probably need, it can be a little overwhelming when trying to fit it all into your home.

Painting, pottery, woodworking, camping, fishing, cycling and so on... These are all interests that require equipment to enjoy, which can be a pain to store and organise in your existing home storage, or office, or garage.

Which is why, when it comes to your hobbies, you might want to consider hiring a low-cost storage unit in Dubai. After all - what might sound like an additional cost (prices start as low as AED 200/month) at first will surely turn into one of the best investments you've made into your projects, and here's why.

1. There are different kinds of units available

With personal, business and warehouse options, you can find a storage unit to suit your needs best with companies like Sentinel Storage.

If you're only intending to rent a storage unit to store your bicycle and equipment, your needs will likely vary compared to someone who's storing more sensitive items, like cans of paint or craft supplies.

With this in mind, you should consider the different sizes of storage units (Sentinel Storage offer unit sizes from 250 cubic ft. to 2,000 cubic ft.), whether climate control is offered, and if they already have built-in storage solutions that you can make use of.

2. Easier to organise for easy access

Having a storage unit will not only allow you to organise your items, but you'll be able to find everything easily and quickly. Individuals who like to collect things would surely find a storage unit as a dream space for their hobby - since collectibles can be stored, organised and arranged neatly without cluttering up space in the home.

3. A quiet space, away from distractions

With children at home, trying to find a quiet place to work on a project can be near impossible to find. Add pets to that equation, and home errands like cleaning, cooking, maintenance and gardening, and your home is unlikely the best place for the peace you need for creative freedoms.

Passions like painting or pottery require a quiet space to let inspiration to find you. Which is why renting a storage unit to convert into your own studio can be a brilliant idea - set-up your equipment, relax with your brushes or clay and be free from distractions.

Alternatively, you may be a small business owner who needs a workshop and/or e-commerce storage. Whether you're a fashion designer, crafter, artist or boutique owner... Having space where you can focus and organise your items in the quiet confines of a storage unit can be a huge help.

4. Save money with a long-term rental agreement

As we mentioned, investing in a storage unit can be the best money spent on your project and passions since renting a storage unit needn't be expensive or difficult. With storage solutions like Sentinel Storage, you can rent a unit long-term and save when signing for a certain number of months.

5. You don't risk your work when downsizing/moving

Dubai is a rental market, which means tenants tend to move around more often (and more quickly) than you might see in countries like the UK or USA. As a result, it's very common for families and individuals to move every 1 to 2 years to save on rent.

By hiring a storage unit, you wouldn't be faced with panic over how to move and fit-in your project's items and equipment into a new home if you need to move. As a result, moving would be less stressful and you'll be comforted knowing your expensive equipment is kept safe and secure.
