Depending on your hobbies, you might need extra space to keep your equipment or supplies. If you’re running out of space at home, storage units offer solutions for a variety of interests. Here are a few hobbies that would definitely benefit from using self-storage!

Outdoor Activities

In Colorado, taking part in an outdoor activity is practically a requirement. Okay, it’s not, but this beautiful state makes it easy to do! Whether you’re into fishing, camping, kayaking, biking, golfing, or four-wheeling, you’re going to need the right gear or equipment to get the most out of your activity. Of course, all those hobbies have gear that takes up quite a bit of space and can be pricey to boot. That’s where storage units come in handy.

Things like tents, sleeping bags, cooking equipment, tables, chairs, kayaks, and bikes are bulky when not in use and troublesome when finding places to store at home. If you want to save space in your home or garage, an off-site space like a self-storage unit makes life so much easier. You’ll always have space in your storage unit for your equipment and you’ll know that all your contents remain in great condition until it’s time to use them again.

Arts & Crafting

Taking part in arts and crafts as a hobby is fairly popular. It can be fun to try new creative things and it can also be soothing. Having a space in your home to get crafty and try new projects is ideal, but supplies can be pretty bulky. And not to mention messy! Your crafting or DIY project supplies may find sanctuary in a storage unit where you can keep them until you need them again.

Storage units are also great for keeping other art equipment safe, too. Whether you’re passionate about photography or videography, you need a safe space to store your bulky equipment. Storing your gear in a storage unit will not only help you stay organized, but it will keep your expensive gear well protected.


There are lots of collectors around, and lots of things to collect. From stamps to antiques, it usually starts off by collecting just a few bits and pieces. If you catch the collecting bug, the story never ends there.

For collectors, you can go on for years collecting things you love. That means likely gaining a sizable collection of records, toys, sports memorabilia, or antiques. While you might want to keep them close by in your home, they can take up quite a bit of room that you (or your spouse) might want back. And if what you collect has financial value, finding a secure place to keep everything safe is a smart move. A storage unit enables you to have a safe place to store your collector’s items, removing the bulk loads from your home and ensuring everything is secure.


Restoration or up-cycling are hobbies many people love as it’s very rewarding for the restorer to complete the work. The trouble is restoration and up-cycling require lots of tools, equipment, and even space to complete certain tasks. If you enjoy breathing new life into everything from engines to unholstered furniture, you need a space to work and keep your tools. Storage units come in a variety of sizes, so you can find the perfect size for your needs and set up a workshop. This way, you can carry out your hobby without the stress of finding a space to stash your stuff.


Traveling is an exciting hobby for one to take part in. While some may think of traveling as backpackers lugging around a little more than the clothes on their backs, other forms of travel require more equipment. If you enjoy hitting the road or water when the weather permits, you might have an extra set of wheels parked somewhere on your property.

Whether it’s an RV, a camper van, or even a fishing boat, your prized possession may be taking up a lot of your driveway or yard space. A storage facility with parking spaces available for your RV and boat can store your vehicle within gated, video-monitored premises during the offseason or until you need it again.
