5 x 5

A 5x5 storage unit is the size of a small closet.

It fits a dresser, a small mattress set, and several small to medium-sized boxes. This unit space is also perfect for garden tools, seasonal decorations and sports equipment. 

TIP: Group your boxes by sturdiness or weight, placing heavier and sturdier boxes on the bottom, and more fragile items on top.  You can maximize space by using a portable shelving system, or stacking boxes on sturdy furniture.
