Here are two benefits homeowners can experience when they rent storage units.
They can give their home a minimalist appearance without giving up belongings they love
If a homeowner loves the look, rather than the philosophy of minimalism, then they may find it hard to give their home the minimalist appearance they want, without giving up some possessions that they think are useful or that they like. A storage unit can be a lifesaver for someone like this. If for example, they want a sparse bookcase with just a dozen or so pretty hardback books on it, but they have hundreds of dog-eared but brilliant paperbacks that they know they'll want to reread in the future, they can put these books in a unit, pick a few up whenever they feel like doing some reading, and still enjoy that simple, uncluttered look they prefer in their home.
Likewise, if they are a 'prepper' and like to always have a year's supply of food available, but they want their kitchen to look as if it has little more than some artfully displayed lemons and a few glass containers of grains in it, they can put their tinned foods in a unit and enjoy the security of having this emergency supply available whenever they need it, without it interfering with their ability to make their home look exactly how they want it to.
They can temporarily remove fragile objects from their home during times when they could get broken
Having access to a rented storage unit can allow a homeowner to keep their fragile possessions safe during periods when those items could get broken if they were left in their home. For example, they can stow their mirrors and glass objects in the unit when they're doing renovations that might result in these items being shattered.
Likewise, if they're worried that their expensive vases and delicate ornaments will get ruined when their home is filled with hyperactive children during their kid's birthday party, they can protect these items by putting them in their unit and then return them to their usual locations in their home after this event.
This can help them to avoid the stress of cleaning up broken items, the expense of replacing the expensive ones and allow them to relax when their home life is busy, as they'll know their most precious belongings will remain unharmed during this hectic time.
