So you graduated art school, or just decided to become a professional illustrator yesterday, or you hit your mid-life crisis full force. Now, you need a dedicated studio for your creative urges—but the way the housing market is looking, you won’t be able to afford that spare room. You can try to contain your creativity to a closet, or you can set up camp in a bathroom (easier to clean), or you can drag out the drop cloth in your bedroom every time you need to ART…but these are pitiful measures that cannot solve the studio space problem.
A self-storage unit can.
Not every storage facility will allow you to camp out for days at a time…but just imagine a storage unit transformed into your own Storage-Studio-Space! Consider:
- It’s cheaper than a “real” art studio. But what makes a studio real is what’s created inside of it, not its location.
- It’s private and far away from your everyday patterns of life. This already gives you the right mindset to create. Plus, it’s mostly free from distractions.
- It’s always accessible. Most self-storage facilities offer 24-hour access. Illustrators do keep weird hours.
Not to mention all the things you could see to inspire you. Who knows what’s in the next storage unit? Or the storage units down the hall? On the opposite side of the street? Who knows what your once-in-a-while neighbors will be like, or if you’ll see a striking muse working at the front counter? Fluorescent lighting can make everyday things very interesting. Inspiration can be found anywhere, including self-storage.
Oh, we know we’re just dreaming. But imagination is a great problem solver…
While you can’t turn a STORBOX unit into your own personal art studio, you CAN store almost anything else in that roomy, climate-controlled space. MAKE room for your home art studio by bringing furniture, clothing, or any miscellanea down to your new unit. See? Self-storage CAN solve your studio space problem!
