As space in Singapore is becoming more of a scarcity, newer houses are getting smaller. It becomes harder for families to create more space in their own homes for their own use. Besides smaller areas, another reason for less space is having too many unnecessary items. Some people may find it hard to let go of their personal belongings even when its no longer useful. In order to address all these problems, the easiest solution is to turn to self-storage providers to increase their storage space. This will help to prevent clutter at home or in the office.
However, with so many self-storage providers in Singapore, how do you go about choosing the ideal storage unit for yourself?
First and foremost, it is important for you to identify which items you want to store. Once that is sorted out, you will be able to estimate roughly how much space you require to store your items. Most self-storage providers offer various storage sizes that caters to various customer needs. It also ensures that you will be getting the most value out of the storage unit that you chose, rather than paying for extra space which you are not using.
Urban Space offers a flexible range of sizes from 9 – 140 sqft at an affordable price. This allows you to store even items that are of odd sizes. If you realized you need more space for more items, you can upgrade your storage size anytime you want.
Next, you have to decide how long you need the storage space for. Different self-storage providers offer different promotions based on the storage duration. Usually the longer you store, the cheaper it is. Besides that, the duration also affects how you store your items. If you are storing it for long term, it is encouraged that you use better packing materials so that they will last longer.
Our storers can choose various storage duration, starting with 1 month to 12 months. Once the storage duration is over, storers can then decide whether they want to renew for the same duration or shorter. This allows greater flexibility for our storers.
Other than storage space, it is important for you to also ensure that self-storage providers offers additional features or benefits such as trolleys, packing areas or packing accessories. Some customers tend to overlook these features when choosing their storage space provider.
At Urban Space, we provide complimentary trolleys and ladders for our customer to use at any time. There are also packing areas setup for customer to do their packing or unpacking of their items. Moreover, our storage facility is accessible 24/7 as each storer has their own personalized access code.
At this point, you have to evaluate what are your available storage options and which criteria are the most important to you. Various factors such as location, price, storage facility quality and service play a part in the decision process. Is location convenience more important to you than quality? Or is the service more important than price?
If you are still unable to decide, the best option is to visit the storage facility and have a hands-on experience at what the storage facility has to offer. Urban Space is conveniently located near Telok Blangah, Bukit Merah, Alexandra, Pasir Panjang & Harbourfront. You can easily access your storage facility and have a free live touring of what Urban Space has to provide!
By following these 4 steps, you should have no issues deciding which storage unit is the right fit for you. It is always important to first determine what you need to store before finding storage space providers. That will allow you to better understand what your storage needs are and what you need to look out for.

As the festive season approaches, many of us are starting to prepare for the busiest time of the year as companies are starting to release their year end sales. If you are still unaware, Singles Day (11/11), Black Friday (27/11) and Cyber Monday (30/11) are all happening this month and many consumers have already begun preparing themselves for when the day comes. However, don’t worry even if you only just found out about it. There is still time for you to catch up on the latest deals. We are here to tell you how to prepare and make the most out of it when shopping online!
By now, most retailers and companies have already published their deals for consumers to see. Which means that you should have time to look through which are the best deals for you and compare them. While you are looking at deals from your favourite stores, don’t forget about other stores which you may not usually look at. Sometimes, some of these stores may offer better deals than your favourite stores. To find more Black Friday deals, you can click here to view the available offers.
Furthermore, if you are unsure of the product’s details, you can always head down to the physical store in advance to have a look. This will be the best time for you to ask any questions about the products and other any identical items. They can serve as alternatives should the original product be sold out.
Due to COVID19, many retailers have made the transition to online shops. As a result, this year’s sales will mostly be conducted through online platforms. Some important factors to take note when shopping online is ensuring your internet connection is stable. There’s nothing worse than suddenly seeing your internet slow down or lose connection just when you are about to check out or confirm your purchase.
While some deals may seem very appealing at first glance, you should ask yourself, do you really need it? Is that new air fryer really necessary, even though the one you already have is working fine? Chances are that you do not really need it. You should also be careful of special offers that requires a minimum spending.
This might be something that most people easily overlook when they are shopping online. They get caught up in the promotion and didn’t check whether the retailer ships the products to Singapore. By the time they realized this, the products that they actually want might be sold out already. To be safe, take some time in advance to check which retailers are able to ship to Singapore.
During your research, you should have come across a few alternatives to the product that you are looking for. This is important because if the item that you were looking to purchase is sold out, people tend to panic and desperately pick whichever items that they can get their hands on. As a result, you may end up wasting money and buying something that is not what you were looking for.
Buying more items means you would need more space to keep them. If you are worried about not having enough space for all your new clothes, a good solution is to use self-storage spaces. Urban Space offers various storage solutions at affordable rates to fit your needs. You can choose from a variety of sizes, from 9 – 140sqft and have personalized access to them 24/7. We are conveniently located near Jalan Bukit Merah, Harbourfront, Pasir Panjang, Alexandra & Queenstown. So, if you are keen on finding out how to create more space, feel free to contact us at 6282 0000 or WhatsApp us at 8030 4216!
At the end of the day, the purpose of having all these promotions is to ensure you make the best value out of your purchases. All the tips that we have mentioned is to prevent you from spending unnecessarily on items that you might not even use and help you save even more. Ultimately, you should feel satisfied and happy of your own purchases.
Being a content creator is a fun way to share your creatives in social media platforms. However to be a professional content creator, you would have to start preparing equipment and even make your own studio to create a good content for income. If you are a content creator with a lot of equipment piling up at your house, here are some tips for you to organise your equipment and even do a makeshift studio.
Content creation is not as easy as doing an insta story using your Iphones. It consists of better quality videos as well as a good microphone. Even lighting and background can come into play for your videos or any other content. As such, a professional content creator usually has several cameras that they use for different reasons such as vlogging or general filming, even 1 for photography. With professional cameras, comes lighting equipment as well as the different lenses to be used for different shots. Lastly, the different background setting equipment that will make or break a quality content. As such, it is important to organise properly all items to make it easier for you to find when you need it immediately. Additionally, these equipment are very expensive, which is all the more important to keep it organised and safe for long term usage.
After properly organising, it may become a problem if you are doing this business on your own. You will find that your house will have a lack of space for storing all of your equipment and film at the same time. That is why some content creators make their own studios in other places such as self storage facilities, where they can store their equipment safely in it and at the same time, potentially use it as a studio whenever they need it. Self storage facilities are safe and accessible with 24/7 CCTV and personalised PIN access. All you will have to do, is to organise and pack your equipment well to make sure that you can easily find your items in your self storage unit.
Some content creators like to use their homes as a makeshift studio as it is convenient for editing purposes, as well as planning the set. However, if you stay with your family, it can be a problem filming with your younger siblings or even parents at home that might create background sounds. As such, having a quiet, empty environment such as self storage units would be much better for you to play around for your filming setting. You will not need to worry about additional background sounds as well since people don’t usually visit the self storage units after moving in. If you do not like a warm environment, there is even Air-con units for you to choose from.

There has always been a constant confusion between organizing and decluttering. Although the two activities go together, the main purpose of organizing is to ensure that your items are in places that you can find. Your closets and drawers can be packed but totally organized. Or, you may have a relatively clutter-free house but can’t ever find what you’re looking for. To ensure that you have an organised space, it is important to keep track of where you place your items. Here are some tips that can help you organise your house.
Having storage type furniture means more spaces to store items and at the same time, helping you to remember and keep track of where you store different categories of items. A storage chair is one of the more popular storage furniture that you can get from most furniture shops. Families like to keep toys or smaller daily use items in it due to the ease of access. Children can also easily reach to open up the chairs to find their favourite toys. Even sofas that allow you to store electronics can also help to prevent any loss of wires whenever you are looking for it.
When you have a huge closet and a lot of clothes that you love to wear, it is easy to lose track of where you have placed certain clothes when you get new ones. Many times the old clothes get buried by other old clothes and you will eventually forget its existence until spring cleaning. There is a better way of categorizing clothes that can allow you to see what you have and make it easy for you to find it. You can try rolling up clothes and putting them into custom drawers that can be easily bought from places like IKEA. By rolling clothes, you can see all the clothes that you have from that category and would not forget about it.
When you tend to collect random items, you will realise that it takes up a lot of space due to the fact that you can’t use it on a daily basis. That is when you will need more space to put in stuff that you actually need to use. Since collectibles are there as a hobby, it is more efficient to leave it in storage spaces that usually store items that are unused and can be forgotten if you do not want to throw it away. A storeroom is a good place that can be used to store unused items, but you have to put it in boxes to make sure it stays organized.
Self storage facilities are one of the best places for you to utilise and store unused items, including your favourite books, hobbies, collectibles and even clothes. You can even store old furniture if you do not feel that it is time to throw it away. For smaller items, you can always choose to store it in locker size storage as it is a budget friendly option. However, for bigger furniture and more items, you can organize them in boxes and store it in larger cabinets. This will help you to clear up space in your homes without throwing away your preloved items.
It is common for people to not want to throw away preloved items due to the value of time that came with it. If so, do take a look at storing in other places. If you are unsure on which self storage, don’t worry! Here at Urban Space Self-Storage, we offer a variety of storage sizes at competitive prices, ranging from 9 to 100 sqft!

It is always an exciting process to move houses especially when we first get our own homes. However, most of the time we do not get to fully prepare ourselves for the moving process. When it comes to moving to new homes, there is a need to wait for the construction, renovation and purchasing of furniture. What if the furniture comes faster than the completion of your new house?
Here are some tips for you to better plan your moving process to make sure it is smooth and stress free.
In Singapore, when it comes to buying new houses, there is a need for new couples to go through a long application and waiting process before they can get their home keys. There can be unexpected situations causing the late collection of keys. As such, new couples should have a plan as to where they can stay while waiting for the keys. Common choices are renting out rooms or staying with their parents.
When you have just collected the keys, the house will be completely empty. Therefore there is a need to plan how long the interior renovation of the house should be, and when to start purchasing furniture. It will be best if you are able to have the furniture delivered right on the day where the constructions are complete. However, do note that there will always be unexpected circumstances that will cause delays to happen.
When waiting for your new house to be ready, there will always be unexpected circumstances. That is where you should find a place that can store your movable household items. Self storage facilities have clean and secure storage environments that will give you a peace of mind to store your furniture or any old items that you are planning to move. This will give you more time to plan the move and less time worrying about your items. Self storage facilities are also flexible in terms of the size and term which means you can put any amount of household items and choose to renew your contract if your construction is delayed.
When you purchase big furniture, it is difficult for you to move your household items from one place to the other. That is where movers come in to help. There are many independent movers that are flexible in bringing your items anywhere. If you place your items in self storage facilities, they will also have vendors that can help you move your items. Therefore, making your moving process as smooth and easy as possible.
If you are waiting for your new house and not sure where to keep your furniture or household items, don’t worry! Here at Urban Space Self-Storage, we offer a variety of storage sizes at competitive prices, ranging from 9 to 100 sqft!

Over the last few years, the rise of e-commerce platforms such as Shopee and Lazada has made it easier and lucrative for anyone to start and operate an online business. However, one of the biggest challenges is having convenient storage or space to store your products.
For us Singaporeans, it would usually be our storeroom or even bedroom, which is not very practical since your bedroom is supposed to be for your own personal space! So here are some reasons as to why you should consider using self-storage and how it can benefit online retailers to solve their storage issues.
Unlike warehouses, self-storage facilities do not charge you property tax, business rates or high rental rates. Instead, you pay a monthly rate for your storage unit depending on the size you are getting. Furthermore, self storage facilities provide more storage size options than warehouses and you would not have to overpay for space that you don’t require. Overall the cost savings of a self-storage space is greater, and for an e-commerce business, this will help to keep your cost margin low.
Due to how easy it is to rent a self-storage space, you can even do it online nowadays. As such, the only thing you need to do is think about how many items you will be storing and how much space it requires. If you feel that you might require bigger or smaller storage spaces in the future, you can always choose to upgrade or downgrade your storage space online as well! This allows greater flexibility for online retailers to make any changes almost instantly.
What if you can’t decide whether you want to commit to e-commerce full time? Do not worry as self-storage facilities do not require you to commit long term contracts as compared to warehouses. You can always choose between 1 month to 3 months, or even up to 12 months. If you signed up for 1 month and realise you need a longer duration, you can always renew your storage contracts for longer storage period! Hence, you do not have to worry about committing your money to an entire year of storage cost.
When deciding on a location to store your items, it is very important to know whether the storage facility is secure. Most self storage facilities are equipped with 24/7 CCTV surveillance systems and security access for storers only. The access is personalised to the storer so that they can access the storage facility anytime at their own ease. This will ensure that your stock will never be misplaced or stolen.
As Singapore tends to be quite humid, it is generally not feasible to leave your air-condition on 24/7 to ensure your stock remains in good condition over time. Which is why it is better to store your items in self storage facilities, where the temperature and environment can be controlled manually. As a result, you would not have to worry about your stocks quality when storing for long periods of time due to the dry and cool environment in self storage facilities.
If you are a business owner who is interested in finding storage spaces to keep your stocks but not sure where to find one, don’t worry! Here at Urban Space Self-Storage, we offer a variety of storage sizes at competitive prices, ranging from 9 to 100 sqft! With highly-secured CCTV surveillance and 24/7 personalized access, you can have a peace of mind when storing at Urban Space! We are located near Alexandra, Bukit Merah & Harbourfront, so feel free to check us out at 3 Depot Close, Singapore 109840 for a quick tour of our storage facility and we will make sure you will leave satisfied while storing your items with us.

You have probably heard of Marie Kondo and read her international bestselling book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. Or maybe you might have even seen her Netflix show, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. For the others that are unaware of who Marie Kondo is, this article will tell you how the KonMari Method can help to tidy up not only your belongings, but also tidy up your life as well!
Marie Kondo is a well renowned tidying expert that helps people to clear their cluttered homes and make more space for themselves. Through the KonMari Method, it encourages people to dispose items that are no longer purposeful or meaningful. Its minimalism-inspired approach gets people to tidy their stuff and only keep items that still serves a purpose or provide “joy” to them. Instead of sorting room-by-room, the KonMari Method sorts out item category-by-category and it should be in order of:
It is important that you follow the order listed above and only move on to the next category when you are done with the previous. By doing so, it will help to prevent confusion later on when you are decluttering items of the same category that are stored in different areas of your home.
How you start off is by gathering all the items of the same category and gather them into one pile. Once you have done so, slowly go through each item by each item and ask yourself whether the items spark joy for you. If it does, then keep it! If it doesn’t, it means its time to let it go! You will repeat these steps until you have gone through every item and category.
This is to help you visualize your ideal lifestyle by only keeping items that are worthwhile to you. There is no point in keeping items that will not help you to achieve your ideal lifestyle and goals. By discarding away irrelevant items, you will end up with a home that is clutter free and able to give you a peace of mind.
If you realized that you have too many items or do not have enough storage space, a good alternative is to store these items at self-storage facilities. At Urban Space, we provide cheap storage units of various sizes options. We are conveniently located near Depot Road, Alexandra, Harbourfront, and Pasir Panjang. Furthermore, our self-storage facilities are highly secured with CCTV surveillance, and you would have 24/7 personal access to your own storage units.

At the end of the day, decluttering is a continuous effort and should never be an “one-and-done” sort of event. The KonMari Method is meant to make decluttering a meaningful process, with the intention of improving your life. The KonMari method will help to declutter everything and prevent you from going back to your cluttered ways. So, what are you waiting for? Time to make space for what matters!

It has been 2 months since the Singapore government has announced the start of Phase 2 of the COVID safety measures. Many companies are still currently having their employees to continue to work from home, as a mean to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19. However, there seems to be some misconceptions that people have about having to work from home. One major misconception that people have is that you are unable to be productive when you are working from home. Is that true?
Based on a research done by Prodoscore, they were able to see whether employees working from home were less productive or not and some of the results derived from the research are as follows:
Overall, the data showed that there was an increase in productivity by 47% in 2020, as compared to 2019, even though most companies were operating from home. So as a matter of fact, the assumption that people are unable to be productive when working from home is not true. So how is that possible? Well, there a few ways that can help you to increase your own productivity when working from home and we have listed a few of them down below.
It is very important that you allocate a specific space at home for your work. If you use the same space for your relaxation and work, you would not be able to maintain focus on your work or even relax properly. By allocating a specific workspace at home, this will help you to set clear boundaries between work and home. You will also be able to concentrate better during working hours and improve productivity.
If you have limited space at home due to having too many items or not having enough space to store them, here at Urban Space, we are able to provide various storage options that can best cater to your needs. From locker size units to large size units, you do not have to worry about storing your items with us and can properly focus on what matters instead!
When you are working, from home or office, it is only natural that you have to take a break once in a while. If you push yourself too hard, you will find yourself easily drained or burned out from work. Research has shown that the best way to stay productive is take breaks – so don’t be afraid to get up, walk about, stretch, grab a snack, or even take a short nap every so often.
One particular method, the Pomodoro Technique, is commonly used by many people to help them relax and come back more focused. It goes as follows:
This technique will allow you to maintain your productivity at an optimum level.
Working from home allows you more flexibility and freedom in managing your own time and tasks. You can determine during which time of the day allows you to be the most productive and efficient. However, this also works as a double-edged sword because having more flexibility means more self-responsibility as well.
Which is why it is very important for you to set a timeline or routine and stick to it. Having a schedule will allow you to feel more structured and helps to keep you more focused, almost as if you are working back in the office.
As businesses are slowly recovering from the COVID-19 setback, some employees are already required to report back to office while many others are still working from home. As such, it is still important for us to continue to practice proper safety measures – such as wearing a mask, washing your hands, or maintaining social distancing. With everybody doing their part, it will not only make your work environment a better place, but your life as well.

In the previous post, we talked about clutter and how it commonly occurs among many households in Singapore. Furthermore, we also mentioned some of the negative effects of what cluttering can do to you. That is why for today’s article, we will be showing you how to reduce clutter through various methods. Below are some ways to reduce clutter around you and create more space!
The best way to decide which items that you should get rid of are stuff that you have not used for over a year. Ever heard of ‘Out with the old & in with the new’? That is exactly how you can reduce clutter and get rid of those items that you no longer use. Besides, there are various good options of getting rid of stuff other than just disposing them in rubbish bins, such as consignment or donating them.
If you have small living spaces available, do not forget about the space above your head. Most people easily tend to overlook these spaces, which can be great for storing little-used items. Vertical storage helps to create more storage space and can make a home feel less cluttered in general.
Not only does this method help to reduce clutter and create more space, it helps you to save more money as well. For example, an ottoman primarily serves as a couch or coffee table, but it also has a built-in storage space as well. That way, you can store your unwanted magazines or books instead of having them lying around everywhere.
So, after you are done with decluttering your home, you may think that the job is finally done, and everything looks fine now. However, the truth is that it is not the end because after certain periods of time, clutter will naturally pile up again if you do not regularly manage your clutter. It is important to set aside some time (maybe once a week or once a month) to declutter every now and then, depending on which works best for you.
At the end of the day, you may find that certain items are too difficult to store or that your home capacity has been fully used up. The best solution for situations like this is to store your items with off-site self storage.
If you are unsure of where to find one, Urban Space offers various storage sizes at affordable prices that can best fit your needs. We are can easily found near Harbourfront, Pasir Panjang & Alexandra. With highly secured storage facilities and personalized access 24/7, you do not have to worry about storing your items with us!
Decluttering may seem daunting at first and you may tell yourself that it is impossible, which is why many people just choose to ignore it. However, it is not as impossible as it seems. All it takes is just the first step and you are on your way to making a better living space. Once it has become a habit over time, the time and effort you put in to declutter will compile quickly and the results will show for themselves. Hence, what are you waiting for? Time to make space for what matters!

Have you even been stressed out from work and when you reach home, find yourself feeling even more stressed out due to clutter in your house? Or have you ever thought of tidying up your house but realized that there is too much stuff all around and end up stressing over it? If your answer to either is a resounding “YES”, that means it is time to do something about it!
Clutter is a collection of things lying around in an untidy mess. It causes the mind to be restless and unfocused as it is constantly moving in different directions. As a result, stress begins to build up within when no work gets done. Based on a research done by UCLA’s Centre on Everyday Lives and Families (CELF), it shows that clutter has a direct impact on a person’s mood and may lead to increased levels of stress. Further studies done by the American Association for Nurse Anesthetists also reveals that there is a direct correlation between stress and clutter. This can result in health issues such weight gain and anxiety issues etc.
If cluttering is bad for you, why is it so common among many households? There are many various reasons as to why cluttering occurs so often. Below are 3 main reasons as to why you have clutter.
This is one of the most common and obvious reason, yet it is also the hardest one to deal with. We are used to collecting and accumulating a variety of items even after we no longer need them anymore. There is a tendency to develop emotional attachments to these items and makes us unable to dispose them.
Besides not knowing when to dispose your items, another reason is that you do not know how to store your items properly. When you are unsure of where to keep your items, there is a tendency of placing these items anywhere. As a result, it causes them to pile up and naturally create a clutter.
Major situational changes in life can often be very chaotic and disorderly. For example, having a new baby will require extra space for baby furniture. Or you may be getting ready to move into a new home and do not know how to start packing. These changes eventually cause stress and clutter to accumulate over time.
Now that you are aware of what clutter is and the reasons as to why cluttering occurs, take some time, and have a look around your house. Do you spot any areas of clutter within your home? If there is and you have no place to store it, feel free to contact us and we will find the best storage size to fit your needs!
